By Royal Appointment
A Royal Warrant is no passport to perpetual patronage. It is renewed every five years, at which time one must convey consistency of quality.
Messrs Thresher and Glenny were first awarded theirs by King George III in 1783. The firm has
held on to it ever since, a feat matched by few.
Fashions, thank goodness, evolve. Standards
are steadfast. Long may they be upheld.
Our first Royal Warrant
An example from the reign
of Queen Victoria; just one
stop on the unbroken line.
Much like the present incumbent, Albert Edward The Prince of Wales held
the post for quite some
time before being promoted in 1902. This warrant is from 1877, a year when he and his household had need of
rather a lot of stockings, shirts and... discretion forbids.
