Brands with a story. Brands with heritage. Brands with passion. That's what stirs Ernest's soul. Although relatively new on the menswear scene – they launched their first season in 2012 – Realm & Empire have Britishness at their core and they are passionate about creating menswear that "brings something new to a market swamped by suspect 'heritage' claims." Their aim is to "create something honest and quintessentially British, with strong historical links."
It is in their unique collaboration with the Imperial War Museum that these historical links are brought to fruition. The founders of the Realm & Empire have been given exclusive access to incredible archive material that inspires each and every clothing garment, from their 100% British-made Merino sweaters to their waxed cotton jackets.
To celebrate their A/W collection, we've teamed up with Realm & Empire to offer this awesome package to one lucky Ernest reader:
Realm & Empire Seal t-shirt (RRP £35): The Realm & Empire seal design is adapted from an original Second World War seal that was used on all confidential documents throughout the war.
Ace of Aces Eagle overshirt (RRP £130): On February 16 1945, the 503rd Parachute Infantry Regiment jumped on Fortress Corregidor (known as the rock) to liberate the island from occupying Japanese forces. In one of the most intense combat missions, the paratroopers braved intense fire and overcame heavy blockhouse defences. For its successful capture of Corregidor, the unit was awarded a Presidential Unit Citation, and received its nickname, the Rock Regiment. Its iconic eagle insignia was designed by PFC Thomas M. McNeill, following the battle. This screen-printed Ace of Aces Eagle jacket features a flash-colour pocket detail and eagle motif on the back.
