A textiles manufacturer that supplies suit cloth for the England football team is marking 100 years of trading.

Alfred Brown produces woven worsted fabric for high-street giants including Marks & Spencer, Next, Austin Reed, John Lewis, Jaeger, Paul Smith and Charles Tyrwhitt.

It also has a long-standing relationship with England’s Football Association through its contract with Marks & Spencer, which will see it produce fabric for the England squad’s official Euro 2016 suits.

It has made suit cloth for three international tournaments since the 2010 World Cup and also for Team GB’s London 2012 Olympics suits.
