Menswear personalised styling service Thread has raised almost £17 million (actually $22 million) in Series B funding with the company’s latest investment round attracting H&M’s investment arm, among others.
The UK menswear sector has been growing for some time and that trend is expected to continue for the next four years, according to the latest report from digital analytics consultancy agency Onefourzero.
After Levi's targeted the British brand over its use of tab labels, Barbour has asked the court to preemptively declare it is not infringing on what the denim brand says is its "famous Tab Device Trademark".
It looks like there are major opportunities for companies making footwear that can stand up to any conditions, and other outdoor gear, as long as it’s on-trend, if the results of a new poll are to be believed.
Barbour is to create a new London flagship store in the North Mayfair area as it relocates to aspirational Duke Street and radically upsizes from its previous location that was less than 1,500 sq ft to over 4,000 sq ft.
