Celebrating 150 years of British design and culture.Lyle & Scott was founded in humble circumstances by William Lyle & Walter Scott in Hawick, Scotland, in 1874, masters of high-quality knitted underwear. Their principle was simple, “Good work, makes more work”. Do something well and people will trust you and come back. The philosophy served the brand well and Lyle & Scott went on to produce high quality men’s and women’s knitwear in the 1920’s, leading to collaborations with some of the world’s most iconic brands, including Michael Kors, Yves Saint Laurent and Christian Dior.


The now iconic golden eagle was then born in the 1960’s, following a gentleman’s agreement with the equally iconic Gleneagles golf club, and the knitwear legacy led to the development of the original fashion golf brand, which then progressed to the Casuals culture of the 80’s, and the birth of British indie culture in the 00’s.


The Lyle & Scott of today blends the very best of our heritage with our passion for the present and future. At all times, innovation, quality, and craft sit at the heart of the brands design ethos, using the lenses of tailoring, military, and sportswear… the staples of great British design. Whilst retaining the iconic golden eagle, our branding devices have evolved and whilst knitwear and golf remain central pillars of the Lyle & Scott brand, we have diversified both range and function, with a move into Sportswear and recently football, under the Kits for Clubs campaign.


Under Kits for Clubs and via football, Lyle & Scott will continue to evolve, at all times championing diversity and inclusivity and relentlessly bringing a voice of change in what is acceptable in the world of both sports and fashion. We will unite the pitch and the terraces. We will champion the underdogs. And we will push to be the best. Dare to be You. Dare to be Great. Good work, makes more work.
