Since 1963, Henri Lloyd has incorporated technical innovation with fashionable styling establishing itself with an enviable reputation of producing high-quality sailing apparel and introducing a lifestyle clothing range with gear for both men and women.
Henri Lloyd has continued to pioneer new technologies and innovative techniques including hand-taping seams for waterproofing integrity and was the first to use Velcro in clothing. This tradition of adopting new technology continues today with the use of highly breathable and moisture wicking materials such as Gore-Tex™ in the Offshore ELITE range and award winning products incorporating recycled and recyclable fabrics.
Early circumnavigation adventurers such as Sir Francis Chichester, Sir Robin Knox-Johnson and Sir Ranulph Fiennes – The greatest living explorer (as described by The Guinness Book of Records) – all chose Henri Lloyd’s revolutionary gear. This tradition continues today both on and off the water with Henri Lloyd being the choice of four times Olympic Gold Medalist and America’s Cup legend Sir Ben Ainslie, eight times Sydney to Hobart line-honors winner Wild Oats XI and the official supplier of travel clothing to the Lotus F1 Team as well as celebrities and media personalities around the world.
Henri Lloyd products maintain a blend of heritage with modern style and technical excellence produced to the standards that stay true to the demands of the sea.
