In 1977, Michael Drake laid the foundation for Drake's in East London, a stone's throw from the historic silk weaving roots of Spitalfields. Originating as craftsmen of men's 'Scarves, Shawls and Plaids,' the brand swiftly evolved, introducing handmade ties and handkerchiefs. These creations swiftly garnered acclaim for their impeccable quality, finding a home in the most distinguished boutiques and department stores of Paris, Milan, Tokyo, and New York.
Guided by Creative Director Michael Hill, Drake's is a symphony of artistry and sophistication. Our soft tailoring hails from Italy, where generations of skilled artisans uphold the country's renowned tradition of sartorial excellence. Scotland, the cradle of knitwear craftsmanship, contributes our traditional knitwear, a tribute to authenticity and enduring style.
In our very own shirt factory in Chard, Somerset, each shirt is meticulously crafted—a testament to our unwavering dedication to precision and the art of shirting. From premium jersey to an extensive range of outerwear, accessories, and Selvedge denim, every piece bears the distinctive mark of Drake’s—'Relaxed Elegance.'
Drake's isn’t just clothe; we curate style narratives for artists, actors, chefs, writers, photographers, and everyone in between. Our creations are more than garments; they're expressions of individuality, embodying a fusion of heritage and contemporary flair.
Experience the enduring elegance of Drake’s. From the heart of London's weaving legacy to the global stage, we invite you to join us on a journey where tradition meets modernity, and craftsmanship reigns supreme.
