The company was started in 2012 by Gary Newbold, ex international racing cyclist and former Head of Design for Barbour during the transformative years of that company. He then spent several years as a freelance designer, working for different brands in Fashion, Skiwear and Country Clothing.
The stated aim of English Utopia is to reinterpret the traditional notion of what is meant by ‘Country Clothing’ and bring it to a wider audience. Whilst still appealing to people that ride, fish or shoot, the brand and its clothes are not defined by those activities. The English Countryside belongs to all of us and you don’t need a uniform to go there.
The company is based in the Yorkshire town of Harrogate and draws much inspiration in its designs from the surrounding countryside.
