Subculture Henri LLoyd 1 (3)

In the 1980s British football fashion-led subculture`s started to wear Henri Lloyd on the terraces, the casual subculture reached its peak in the late 1980s. With the arrival of the acid house, rave Manchester scenes, the violence of the casual subculture faded, In the mid-1990s, the casual subculture experienced a revival, but emphasis on style had changed slightly. Many football fans adopted the casual look as a kind of uniform, identifying them as different from the ordinary club supporters. Popular clothing brands included Stone Island, Aquascutum, Burberry, & of course Henri Lloyd, In the late 1990s, many football supporters began to move away from the brands that were considered the casual uniform, because of the police attention that these brands attracted. Several designer labels also withdrew certain designs from sale after they became associated with casuals.

Marking their 50th anniversary, Henri Lloyd have worked to create a range that combines their established, classic aesthetic with the industry’s new penchant for high-end technical wear, their new collection Black Label focuses on ‘real’ characters and pioneers, the brand offers a collection punctuated by bold colors and focuses on street wear essentials to provide somewhat of a rugged but casual style clothing.

Henri Lloyd is a true classic British icon when it comes to performance & casual clothing, you don`t just get great clothing you get years of innervation & quality to.
