    What happened to the Coeur De Lion Brand? My wife bought a bikers jacket as a Christmas present a few years ago. Reading the article, knocked me into looking into what they make these days. No sign of them. The jacket is brilliantly well made. If they’ve gone then it’s a real shame?

    Kate, yes great it opened my horizons to men’s British coats, but why don’t you add a link so interested buyers can go straight to their websites?

    • Jonathan Sharpe on December 6, 2018 at 1:53 pm

      Hi Brian… both the name of the brand and the images are links through to either the brands listing in the Make it British directory, or their own website.
