In 1796, with the birth of his first son, also named Thomas, Thomas made the move to Wigston Magma where he went into business as a hand frame knitter, commonly known back then as a “bag man”. In total, Thomas had two children, Thomas (1796) and William (1797), who later went on to run the business. Every step from the very first design to the finishing stitch has, and always will be executed here in the UK. We can control everything about the garment production from start to finish and we have a close working relationship with the team at our Manchester based factory. We offer something a bit different, something special and we want our customers to be excited about where their clothing comes from. “90% of clothing that we buy in Britain is outsourced when it comes to production in order to cut costs as much as possible but this often means sacrifices in the brands sustainability as well as in the quality of the garment produced..” We always start the design process with a few core themes in mind; Functionality, adaptability and a play on tradition. It is important that our clothes span seasons and that you are investing in a wardrobe staple that you will love for years to come so highest quality materials are essential. Our designs stand up to the elements but transition perfectly to suit an urban environment making them adaptable for both city living and country breaks. When you’ve been around as long as we have, you get a clear sense of what determines a piece of clothing a ‘classic’, We take these classics and play with the structure, colourways and detail to make them fresh and contemporary. Our knitwear factory is situated in Manchester but our offices and headquarters have resided in Bristol for the last 10 years. The team have settled into a new office and showroom in Montpelier, a vibrant and bustling area just North of Bristol city-centre which is well worth a visit if you stop by, have a coffee and peruse the latest range.

Since 2010, from a barn in the countryside, a small dedicated group of people (by which we mean ourselves) have scoured the British fashion world, gathering up the very best pieces by emerging designers of all ages and made them available to lucky, lucky you. A global destination store focusing entirely upon the best and brightest of our homegrown fashion designers. A world stage where our most talented young people can strut their immensely wonderful stuff. New designers can sometimes find themselves stocked by amazing retailers from the likes of Topshop to the formidable Matches Fashion, Net-a-Porter, Selfridges and a smattering of gorgeous boutiques the land over. But there was no single retailer purely representing designers based here in the United Kingdom. Until YBD. There is just something about being a young British designer. It's about pushing boundaries, breaking rules that really shouldn't be broken, risking everything in pursuit of your dreams. It's about creating brands that aren't homogenous, that do not appeal to everyone but are deeply meaningful to those they do resonate with. It's because our young designers are so world leading, so wholly passionate and dedicated to the cause that we are delighted to dedicate ourselves to them. Some are names you may have heard of, some will be outrageously brand new to the world. All of them have created the most uniquely designed collections. Discover them first. Right here.

Mamnick is the road that leaves Hope valley and ascends Mam Tor, deep within the splendor of the Peak District. 'The Peaks' is one of the most picturesque locations in Britain. Mamnick is a brand inspired by this scenery which is on the door-step of where our manufacturing takes place. From day one I have been passionate about our manufacturing process and I am proud to say that the majority of the Mamnick inventory is manufactured in South Yorkshire. I tip my hat to my Grandad Eric Barnett every time I work with steel. He was a man who spent his entire working life within the famous Sheffield steel industry and lived only six miles away from the factory in the mining town of Rotherham, with his wife of 70 years Emily Barnett. Many of our products are made by people only a stone's throw away from the road that my Grandad and I grew-up on. A family community where every weave and stitch has a story. It's this family of people, with their craft and workmanship, that make us who we are. It's nice to work so closely with manufactures that share the same feelings towards Britain's manufacturing heritage and I'm grateful to them - if they weren't willing to help, then Mamnick would be little more than a logo in my head.
