Henri Lloyd x Oi Polloi

henri lloyd x oi polloi

Two Mancunian institutions, Oi Polloi and Henri Lloyd, have teamed up to reproduce some of Henri Lloyd’s classic 1960s sailing jackets – namely the Viking and Consort RWR (Round the World Race). While both the original jackets were originally intended to be worn out-at-sea (Sir Francis Chichester chose to wear them on his pioneering voyage around the world in 1966) their stand-out design meant they were appropriated as something simply to be worn out-and-about. Almost twenty years after the original release, dapper Milanese youths associated with the Paninaro scene adopted the jackets in an European take on the preppy look seen sported by American college students.

Both jackets will be limited in numbers and exclusive to Oi Polloi.
