About our Merchant and Mills Pattern Billy Menswear:
Merchant and Mills Pattern Billy Menswear offers the perfect fit with the new Arbor pattern. This one is another of the workwear line, a practical, stylish gilet. A really versatile pattern means that this one can be made lined, or unlined with the facings on the inside or outside.

Why do we love Merchant and Mills?
There are some brands that inspire creativity. Merchant & Mills is top on our list. Their purpose is to make (or more precisely get YOU to make) clothes, not fashion. In curating and designing patterns, fabrics and tools, they make our fingers itch to start deisgning, cutting and making. The two creators behind the brand are Carolyn Denham, who has a degree in Fashion design and has worked in New York, Italy and London and Roderick Field, a respected photographer with works in the National Portrait Gallery and keeps the look of the brand through his gorgeous product photos.
