As Hurricane Irene bears down on the east coast, it’s timely to take a look at outerwear that would be both functional and stylish while riding out the storm. There’s no better place to look than Henri Lloyd, an English maker that has supplied sailors for decades. Here are a couple of items from their Offshore Sailing Collection.
Henri Lloyd, based in England, has been known in the sailing world since the 1960′s. The line pioneered the use of technical fabrics for garments that have long been favored by sailing enthusiasts. What is largely unknown to the public in the US is their Menswear line of clothing. Competitive prices and classic, functional styling positions the sportswear maker to change its anonymity in this country.
