Wolsey is the oldest British menswear brand built on design and quality for the modern explorer.
Established in 1755 by Henry and Ann Wood, Wolsey’s heritage dates back to the emergence of the cottage industry where businesses and manufacturing activities were carried out in people's homes. This, in addition to the invention of the stocking knitting frame in 1589 greatly improved the process of manufacturing knitted hosiery in the East Midlands region, enabling Henry and Ann Wood to increase output and sell to a wider public.
Wolsey continues to reflect on the ingrained principles of the brand that have been borne over its 260 year history, where authentic elements of the past are evolved in an enduring manner into the future, to create products that are naturally fit-for-purpose, luxury yet robust.
Wolsey sports apparel is still held in high respect within the golfing world with professional golfers Eddie Pepperell, Robert Rock, Chris Hanson and Toby Tree representing Wolsey as brand ambassadors. In October 2018, Eddie Pepperell won the British Masters wearing Wolsey.
The most carefully selected and sourced materials combined with the highest quality led craftsmanship, empowers the Wolsey man to conquer all environments he encounters – be it roaming the city, whilst exploring the outdoors or when relaxing at home.
