With all due respect
Hope and Glory was a knock off of Duffer of St George. Still one of my all time favourite brands.
Great label. I've had some smart things by them over the years and still have a beaten up 'Duffers Expedition' sweatshirt that I wear around the house. Geese was chocker with it when it used to be upstairs in the Royal Exchange.
With moving house recently I've had to sort out all of my stuff before moving and don't realise that I owned as much Silas stuff as I do. This was another favourite label of mine in the early nineties a bit after Duffer was out. Got some decent jackets and shirts by them. I used to like the little quips that they used to print on the care labels, which related to the piece of clothing,'get your sag on, pee in a circle, keeping your warm on your rounds'. The labels lost its mojo since it was flogged to the Japanese though.
