Wakefield’s very own Ross Barr
British knitwear is back in vogue, founded in 2015, this UK fashion house is championing British knitwear for men.
Wakefield’s very own Ross Barr-Hoyland began his fashion brand by using 100% British wool from Scotland with a classic piece of men’s knitwear called The Spencer.
100% Britsih elegance and style
Inspired by the elegance of the Regency Period, Barr-Hoyland has reinvented the garment, which was originally a woollen outer tail-coat with the tails cut off, worn as a short-waist-length, double-erased man’s jacket in the 1790s.
We’re proud here at Gay Yorkshire of Barr-Hoyland’s passion for the British knit and the fact that Ross is also from Yorkshire.
