Fellows looking for unique, yet sophisticated, garments to complement their wardrobes will be hard pressed to find a men’s fashion line that meets these needs better than England’s Private White, V.C. Inspired by World War I hero Jack White, Private White, V.C. is a ruggedly classic line produced by “Britain’s Bravest Manufacturer.”
Jack White, a recipient of England’s Victoria Cross, earned the distinguished honor by exhibiting outstanding bravery under intense enemy fire. After the war, White began an apprenticeship in a raincoat factory and it was here that he learned to create some of the finest garments in all of England. White’s great grandson, James Eden, now owns the factory where White got his start in the manufacturing industry, and the Manchester plant now produces the Private White, V.C. line, designed by the son of Welsh (and impossibly girly) designer Laura Ashley, as well as clothing for high-profile brands like Burberry, Paul Smith, and Aquascutum.
According to The Telegraph, Private White, V.C is “a deeply British collection” inspired by the everyday wardrobe of Jack White. Featuring classic wardrobe staples like pea coats, knitted cardigans, and button down shirts, many pieces in the Private White collection bears a Victoria’s Cross emblem in honor of the war hero’s achievement.
