    On Thursday March 1st (despite heavy snowfall!), Double Two received a visit from Mr Michael Saunders a member of the Bank of England’s Monetary Policy Committee. He was accompanied by Mr Will Holman, Deputy Agent for Yorkshire.

    Ricky and John Donner, Chairman and Managing Director of Double Two, have been members of the bank’s Yorkshire Business Information Panel for several years. It was, however, a great honour to be chosen for a company site visit and in depth discussion on the effect the bank’s monetary policy was having on the company and on the clothing industry in general.

    MPC members visit industrialists all over the country, through good weather and bad! The visits help the MPC to understand how real businesses work and are responding to the challenges they face. The Bank of England is giving guidance that interest rates are likely to rise, in a gradual and limited way.

    To get us all in the mood for Pancakes, and because it’s also the day of Tuesday Trivia, here’s 12 fun facts about Pancake Day, or Shrove Tuesday as it is traditionally known.


    1. The word ‘shrove’ is the past tense of ‘shrive’, meaning to hear a confession, impose a penance or give absolution. Shrove-tide was a week of confession and merriment before Lent.


    2. “Short shrift” comes from the same verb: it was a quick confession before a criminal’s execution.


    3. Pancakes are now forever associated with Shrove Tuesday as it is a sort of all-in-one way of using up some fatty foods before fasting for Lent. In the past the idea was for families to clear out their cupboards and remove the fatte

    As most of you look forward to the Summer months, we're looking even further ahead to the end of the year already!

    We recently headed to a studio location for the photoshoot of our Autumn/Winter 2018 Collection!

    Outside it was cold, wet and dreary but the beauty of spending the whole photoshoot in a studio meant we weren’t at the mercy of the weather and we could produce exactly the look we wanted to achieve.

    Inside, we set about creating the perfect backdrops and winter scenes for the Autumn/Winter Collection 2018.

    Here’s a sneak peek of what went on behind the scenes…

    As British Prime Minister Theresa May recently vowed to eliminate the UK’s plastic waste by the year 2042, we are proud to state that in the last year we have reduced our use of plastic packaging by 75% across our casual range!
