Renowned for its util­i­tar­ian de­signs meant to with­stand the most ex­treme of weather con­di­tions, this 166-year-old Bri­tish her­itage brand has since evolved into a badge of in­di­vid­u­al­ity that is worn by trend­set­ters from all cor­ners of the globe. The his­tory of Aquascutum dates back to 1851, when tai­lor John Emary de­cided to open a menswear shop in Re­gent Street be­fore cre­at­ing a method of pro­duc­ing a wa­ter-re­pel­lent tex­tile. Dur­ing the Crimean and Sec­ond World Wars, Bri­tish army of­fi­cers would don the la­bel’s rain­coats on the bat­tle grounds. In 2012, Aquascutum was ac­quired by Hong Kong-based YGM Trad­ing for GBP15 mil­lion. In March this year, YGM an­nounced that it had sold Aquascutum for GBP95 mil­lion to Jin­ing Ruyi In­vest­ment, a hold­ing com­pany owned by Shan­dong Ruyi Tech­nol­ogy Group.
