Crafting the Trench Coat module photo

Made in our East London factory, each Aquascutum continuity trench coat has been carefully constructed following the steps below. Each day, 300 men’s, women’s and children’s trench coats are produced by staff from the locality. Each staff member is an expert in their department and has been hired particularly for these skills. This year, the factory won the Queen’s Award for Enterprise: International Trade.
