Gary NewBoldThis is me trying to look serious. Apparently 'the experts' say you have to have a mugshot of the person behind the brand. Well I guess that's me.

I started English Utopia in 2012, having formerly been the head of design for Barbour and have working as design consultant (THAT overused word) for several other luxury, heritage brands.

The design, patternmaking and cutting with all of the products that you see in these pages have involved me in those capacities. We make EVERYTHING in house, here in our workshops in York UK. All fabrics are purchased in Europe from only the finest fabric mills. We believe in transparency and traceability for all of our products and to this end, we always inform you as to where and from whom we buy our raw materials and each product we make comes with it's own I.D number.
