The Buy British Day 2015 Edit

Buy British Day is an opportunity for consumers – both in Britain and overseas – to support British manufacturers, designers and craftsmen by investing in beautifully made British produce.



This year, Buy British Day will be held on Saturday October 3rd 2015.

Rule Britannia and God Save the Queen: it’s nearly time for Buy British Day 2015! Here at MyBag, we like to celebrate our quintessentially British brands all year round – but we give them some extra special attention on Buy British day.

We love British style – unafraid to experiment with new designs, colours and textures, here are some of our favourite British designers…

Aspinal of London

A favourite of the Royal Family, Aspinal London epitomises British style. As a brand, Aspinal have deep-rooted British roots which ensure their products have a typically English feel; handcrafted from the softest leathers, their classic and traditional designs have made Aspinal a firm favourite here at MyBag. If it’s good enough for Kate Middleton, it’s good enough for us!

Paul Smith
