More about Lyle & Scott
In 1874 William Lyle and Walter Scott founded a knitwear company in Hawick, a small town hidden in the Scottish Borders. The premise was to meet the demand for high quality underwear in Victorian Britain.
In the 60s Lyle & Scott launched the golf wear range, a move that coincided with the design of the now iconic Golden Eagle motif. The Eagle represents not only the brands reputation for reliability and quality but is also, of course, a golfing term for achieving two shots below par.
Today the brand has sharpened up their fit and expanded the horizons of the brand attracting a new generation of young, talented, music, TV and film stars. The Golden Eagle proved particularly popular amongst the noughties indie pop scene and could be regularly spotted on bands like Vampire Weekend, Arctic Monkeys and Bloc Party
