"We design and manufacture high quality, modern heritage coats for young urban consumers from Tuscany to Tokyo. 90% of our clients are outside of the UK. They want British culture with an international style - the 'made in Britain' guarantee is at the heart of our continued success." Mamun Chowdhury, Co-Founder and Director

Founded in 2002, London Tradition Ltd designs high quality clothing that is manufactured in the UK. The company's early innovative approach led to the development of one of their signature garments - the Heritage Duffle Coat - also known as 'the Montgomery' for its links to the British Royal Navy and being worn by Field Marshall Montgomery.  

Today, all manufacturing is still based in London in a spacious factory and design studio. Every coat is hand-finished, hand-cut and made from luxury Italian or English wool cloth. The process demands skill and experience and the company has a team of craftspeople using traditional English methods.  

"The Queen's Award is a significant achievement for us. Being able to carry the Queen's Award Emblem will attract new customers and strengthen our position as a leading British heritage brand." Rob Huson, Co-Founder and Director

As well as attending a palace reception in July with Her Majesty The Queen in recognition of the Award, London Tradition will be hosting a ceremony at their premises to receive the Queen's Award Trophy from one of Her Majesty's Representatives.
