I could tell you that Lavenham was started in 1969 in Lavenham Village, a town that now has well under two thousand people. I could tell you that they begun with quilted horse rugs, before applying their quilting techniques to other classic country designs. I could tell you that their products are still made in an English factory, using the same watchful approach that they started with nearly fifty years ago.
But, none of that really matters when you look at the price tag.
If you purchase one thing this Fall, it should be a quilted Lavenham. Two pockets, button snaps up the front, corduroy collar, the same way it’s looked since the seventies. After all, why ruin a good thing with bad design?
