CLOTHING THAT BECOMES YOU
Let’s get the pun out of the way right up front. This is the story of how we came to BEE, creators of distinctive, limited edition menswear, outerwear and shirting all handmade here in East London.
And this is me, Ben Crane – head designer, pattern cutter, owner, head of sales, despatch, occasional model and sometime collaborator with great guys like Percival, Western Assembly, Temple Cycles, Number Six London, Spoke & Stringer, Stighlorgan and the boys at Union Project back in my home town, Cheltenham.
We launched the brand 5 years ago – feels longer – with a philosophy to make clothes without compromise and a belief that you don’t have to sacrifice style to enjoy protection from the elements.
We focus on the autumn and winter seasons because it shows BEE at its best. We’re sticklers for detailing, like our signature engraved horn buttons. We love contrasting beautiful materials like Italian wool, neoprene pocketing and the finest Japanese cotton. And we insist on crafting everything here in London.
And we have a strong affinity with city cycling, often featuring reflective strips, back pockets, advanced waterproofing and a little give and stretch for greater pedalling comfort.
We hope you like what you see, add a BEE piece or two to your wardrobe, pop back occasionally to see what we are up to and perhaps hook up with us on social so we can keep you in the loop with offers and new launches.
