A Part of History:

Once the heart and soul of Macclesfield’s industry: the tradition of Expert Silk Crafting that began by Royal charter 850 years ago, is set to make its big comeback.

Inspired by our towns heritage, John Douglas Menswear’s very own David Johnson gives us traditional silk designs coupled with an original, modern flare.

With an exquisite range of bespoke, high quality ties, scarves and pocket-squares, there is something for every occasion. Each piece is draped in the rich history of Macclesfield’s Royally appointed Silk production, in addition to being truly unique.

Carry on reading to take a closer look at some of our staple pieces this season.

John Douglas Silks:

Designed, crafted and produced exclusively in the UK, John Douglas Silks are a 21st century re-imagining of the Macclesfield Silk industry. Luxurious and unique, these silk accessories are a true part of British heritage to be worn with pride.

From polka dot to paisley, John Douglas Silks designs are made for everyone.

Clash in bright, sunshine yellow, or play it cool in blue tones. With a vast variety of colours and patterns, there is something for every outfit.

With attention to style, pocket-squares are the perfect way to dress up that simple suit. Worn together with a tie or as a great alternative to the classic; a bold silk pocket-square says it all.


That’s all for this weeks #FashionFriday.

Here at John Douglas Menswear we embrace our towns rich history and continue to develop it’s heritage.
