Lyle & Scott 'Archive Exchange'

Wednesday, 10 August 2011

On Saturday 28th August Lyle & Scott are are hosting the ‘Archive Exchange’ at the Beanscene in Hawick.

Lyle & Scott was founded in Hawick in 1874 and is immensely proud of its roots in the Scottish Borders. You can clearly see the influence of archive and heritage designs in the company's vintage, heritage and archive range of clothing collections
This is an event to kick-start our campaign to restore the company’s archives. We are on the lookout for any vintage Lyle & Scott memorabilia you may have – garments, historical documents, photographs or cuttings from newspapers – and asking you to bring them along to be photographed for our record. To say thank you we are offering a brand new Lyle & Scott item in exchange!  So please come along and share you stories over a cup of tea.
For more information about the event please contact or 0207 467 7519

You should also check out their blog for a post about branding their vintage collection, it describes the process of researching the brand and its yellow eagle logo using the archive collection here in Scotland.
