Founded by John Emary in 1851, Aquascutum originally started out as a tailor’s located in London’s Mayfair area. Since day one, the company has put fine craftsmanship and technical innovation at the forefront of the business and two years after opening, John Emary invented and patented the first ever waterproof textile. Emary’s creation then led to the inspiration behind the brand’s name, Aquascutum, which translates as ‘water shield’ from Latin. Since then, the company’s ongoing success lead to a relocation of the flagship store to 100 regent street in 1895. Famously, Aquascutum’s first royal client was King Edward VII, who ordered a coat in the Prince of Wale Check. In 1897, a royal warrant was received marking the beginning of a long patronage with the royals. Post this, Aquascutum began to design outwear for women in 1900 when the functionality of the coats and capes became popular among women's organisations.
The 1990's were exciting for the brand as they provided the official uniforms for the British Olympics team, additionally, the company was bought by Japan’s Renown in 1990. In 2006, Kim Winser took over as chief executive and signed up Pierce Brosnan (aka James Bond) as the new face of Aquascutum.
