A BRAND BUILT ON STORIES.
INSPIRED BY REAL CHARACTERS.

2008

Founded by Designer and Social Activist Joe Corre. A Child Of The Jago recreates the Themes of a narrative written under the same title "A Child of the Jago" published in 1896 by Arthur Morrison.

A time of the Jago.

This was a time when you knew who people were by how they dressed. Where people were not so consumed by fitting in but rather by standing out. We follow these rules today.

Since its launch in 2008 A Child Of The Jago has continued to champion, create and produce limited runs of bespoke tailored and contemporary clothing. Often using obsolete and end of line cloths from British mills. All our garments are made in the UK, many of them in our own Clerkenwell workshop.

Our Styles are inspired by characters, archetypes, criminals and rebels of society. The battles they fought, the rules they broke, the things they stole. You can see these acts of defiance throughout our pieces.

Shoreditch was not only the home of the fictional world of The Jago. Also the first location of our flagship store where the heart of our style came alive in all walks of life from eccentric Celebrities, tailored business magnates to magicians and rock stars.
