Best of Britannia - 100% Futureproof


We were delighted to take part in the October 2016 London edition of Best of Britannia - a showcase for up and coming British brands.

Tom Dick and Harry were exhibiting as part of The Grey Fox', curated selection, commissioned by the show's organisers.  The Grey Fox is one of the UK's leading arbiters of men's style, and his blog is followed closely by the trade as well as consumers.  We were favoured with a premier position at the entrance of Victoria House in Holborn, central London, alongside some long established brands such as the cashmere knitters, Johnsons of Elgin, as well as newcomers The Northampton Sneaker Company and British Boxers.


The show demonstrated the amazingly diverse nature of British manufacturing:  Bicycle makers, Shoemakers, Jewellers, Skincare, Artists, Clothing designers and Distillers. to name just a few of the disciplines on view.  The opening day was a chance to meet the press, bloggers, TV crews and trade buyers.  The following two days were open to the public, with a chance to buy the products on display.

We were pleased to meet existing and potential customers at the fair, and for those unable to attend, we are pleased to have found a way of bring you some of the other products on offer through the Tom Dick and Harry website.  During October, November and December Tom Dick and Harry will be showcasing designs from half-a-dozen or so British designers and manufacturers:  Not only men's accessories, but great gifts for ladies too.

Make sure you have signed up to receive our emails (we send no more than one email per week, and often less than that!), so that you can explore these hand-picked products.

We are indebted to our friends at the English Mineral Makeup Company for the following  interview recorded at Best of Britannia.
