When you set out to look at every detail of one product, you find some amazing stories. In 2012, an old British button makers, James Grove & Co closed its doors on their UK production. An advert went up in the papers, to ask if anyone would step in and help out. David and Andrea Courtney decided to take on the company, recondition the machines and learn how to make buttons.

In their vote of confidence on the town, 150 years of button making heritage continues to thrive. We are very, very, very proud to be working with Courtney & Co. for our jackets.
