Maker & Haberdasher.

Drake’s was founded in 1977 in London’s East End, producing scarves and shawls for high-end fashion boutiques and traditional tailoring houses, before branching out into the ties and pocket squares for which the brand became known.

Michael’s philosophy was to produce timeless pieces that have a relaxed elegance to them, and his vision still informs Drake’s to this day.
After working alongside Michael Drake for over a decade, Michael Hill and Mark Cho took over the company in 2010, with Hill as Creative Director. Under Hill’s stewardship, Drake’s has grown from luxury accessories manufacturer to true design house, with a distinct and recognisable aesthetic; sartorially informed yet easy-wearing, contemporary yet timeless.

Today our factory and headquarters is still based in the East End, a stone’s throw from London's silk weaving roots in Spitalfields, with a second Drake’s factory in Somerset. We pride ourselves on our dedication to craftsmanship and exacting quality as well as our unique design sensibility, creating enduring garments and accessories of real worth. In the words of Michael Hill, “we make things that people can and will want to wear, for years and years to come.”
