In 1874 William Lyle and Walter Scott founded a knitwear company in Hawick, a small town hidden in the Scottish Borders. In the 80s the bright colours of Lyle & Scott's golfwear range were then adopted by and introduced to the main apparel range, bringing a more contemporary image for the brand.
Lyle & Scott featured heavily in a landmark investigation by iconic magazine The Face in to the casuals youth movement. Reinforcing our position as the original golf brand, Greg Norman wearing a now iconic geometric Lyle & Scott jumper, emphatically won the '86 Open Championship at Turnberry. Affection for Lyle & Scott amongst celebrity golf enthusiasts continues with Ronnie Corbett and Sean Connery donning the Golden Eagle. In 2003 we sharpened up our fit and expanded the horizons of the brand attracting a new generation of young, talented music, TV and film stars.
