British Veteran Owned Brands You Need To Check Out.
Do British Veterans do it better?
There has been a huge influx of Veteran and Military owned brands over the past 6 years. What became popular over in the states, has made it's way over to the UK with people taking inspiration from brands such as Zulu Foxtrot, 30 seconds out, and a coffee company that we can't seem to remember the name of.
As always, us Brit's always have our own spin on things. Do we do it better? Or do we just do things differently? Thats for you to decide.
We have built some really good relationships over the years with like minded companies, with not only integrity but originality.
Here's some of our recommended British Veteran owned brands.
SIN EATERS GUILD - SEG
Gaz was one of the first to raise his head out of the para pit to set up a Veteran company, setting the bar high from the get go. Sin Eaters Guild is more than just a clothing company, he has built a community bonded by their actions.
Originally born out of a desire to promote the veteran community and the mindset that sets us apart, the community has grown to include those non-veterans who embrace our mindset, including over 100 people bearing the SEG tattoo...
FIGHT OR PERISH - FOP
Created in the United Kingdom, FOP is a brand carved from years of proud military service and hard fought experience by two friends with different backgrounds, but both with the same ambition and drive.
Creating quality designed t-shirts for regiments and specialist units across the British Army, including the Jungle Warfare Division.
QUICKDRAW CARD CO
Quick Draw Card Co. was founded by two former Royal Marines Commandos, both with extensive operational experience including working alongside United Kingdom Special Forces.
They have created and produced the first ever military/emergency services playing cards.
By producing these playing card decks they hope to bring people together away from technology to laugh and talk one game of cards at a time. I know from personal experience that whilst being deployed on operations you get to know so much about the people around you whilst engaging in these kind of activities, without a 'like' or hashtag in sight!
They also produce their card artwork as custom prints, of which we have a bespoke Special Forces Communicator print proudly hung in our office.
If you are aware of HR4K's back story then you can probably work out why they are smartly named HR4K. Ben is arguably the OG of this UK veteran business scene, where many have tried to replicate and fail, Ben has always had the foot hold and originality, bringing the accessibility of many US veteran companies to people here in the UK.
From starting in a pad garage, to operating numerous coffee shops, and an aesthetically pleasing HQ in the heart of Hereford, HR4K continue to grow and make noise.
Created for the necessity of strength and conditioning for Government, Military and Specialist Teams. STOIC have been the go to fitness programme for ourselves and many within our circle.Offering training programmes from joining the Royal Marines to building size and mass, all the way to UKSF selection preparation. Affordable and specific, these guys have the knowledge and integrity to offer such programmes with proven success.
