Why Lyle & Scott is one of the most diverse brand in the UK

150 years - Lyle and Scott

Lyle & Scott stands as one of the most diverse brands in the UK, with a rich history dating back to 1874. Founded by William Lyle and Walter Scott in the Scottish Borders, the brand set out with a clear vision: to craft high-quality knitwear that would endure through time.

From its inception, Lyle & Scott has been synonymous with craftsmanship and excellence. By 1910, the brand had expanded significantly, resonating with the working class with its outerwear collection in the 1920s. This marked the beginning of its journey as a trusted household name.

As the years passed, Lyle & Scott's influence continued to grow, attracting attention from international fashion houses. Collaborations with esteemed brands like Christian Dior in the 1950s underscored the brand's commitment to timeless design. The introduction of the iconic golden eagle logo in the 1960s further solidified its position, especially in the realm of golf wear.

Throughout its history, Lyle & Scott has epitomised versatility in style. Their golfing range, beloved by legendary players like Arnold Palmer and Gary Player, remains a top choice for fashion-conscious golfers seeking both elegance and performance.

Beyond the golf course, Lyle & Scott's premium knitwear found a place in subcultures like the Mods and football casuals, making it a brand embraced by diverse fashion communities.

In 2024, Lyle & Scott's legacy continues to thrive, with RD1 proudly stocking their latest ranges.
