Fox Brothers Queens Award College Scarf


We are excited to introduce the Fox Brothers Queens award college scarf.

Historically the college scarf was invented due to wartime shortages, there was not enough wool yarn to create knitted scarves, so companies decided to develop a woven wool material, leading to the distinctive vertical striped style of college scarves today. After the war ended, wool became widely available again but the stripe proved so popular amongst universities and other institutions they elected to keep them. 

Made from french Navy and Ecru light weight Queens award flannel, The Queen's Award to Industry was presented to Fox Brothers & Co. in 2006, in recognition to the comprehensive research & development work, which lead to the production of the world’s lightest fine wool flannel.

    Fox Brothers has been making fine luxury woollen cloths since 1772. The cloth used here was first developed during the 1860’s when Fox became well known for its softly textured ‘West of England' flannels, so admired and desired by Savile Row tailors and gentlemen of style and elegance around the world.
