AQUASCUTUM SINCE 1851: Set up by John Emary, Aquascutum began as a Mayfair tailors in 1851. From the beginning, fine craftsmanship and technical innovation have been at the forefront of the brand, and two years after opening, Emary created and patented the first waterproof textile. This unique development led to inspiring the brands name, which translates as water shield, from Latin. The companys growing success led to a relocation of the flagship store to 100 Regent Street in 1895.

Aquascutum developed the iconic trench coat in 1914, for use by the British military during World Wars 1 and 2. These garments received much praise from soldiers on the front line, due to their waterproof properties and reliable durability. This dedication to practicality and impeccable style meant that the trench soon after became an integral part of British fashion. 1953 saw the development of Wyncol fabric for use by explorer Edmund Hilary and his team during their first ascent of Mount Everest. This high-tech cotton and nylon poplin mix was capable of resisting winds of up to 100 MPH. This fabric was then used to manufacture outerwear for sale in-store.
