The Private White VC menswear line is minimal and sensible in its design aesthetic but rich in its history.

Created using only locally sourced fabrics from Britain, each piece is inspired by the wardrobe of Jack White; a WWI veteran, Victoria Cross recipient and founder James Eden's great grandfather.

After serving his time in the war, White returned home to Manchester and became the owner of the company which now produces the clothing in his great grandson's line.

Lead designer Nick Ashley tailors each piece from durable, long-lasting materials using a muted palette combined with splashes of color. The silhouettes are work-wear inspired and could have easily been worn by a soldier in the 1900s while also featuring subtle, modern touches that bring each piece the 21st century.
