About Us

History MMSFounded in Birmingham during 1868 Lambournes Sophos Ltd were manufacturers of braces, spats, buttons and studs, which were supplied both to the gentry and the menswear trade.

Over the following decades the company expanded its range to include cufflinks armbands, belts, leather goods and gifts.

 In 1981 it was acquired by the Arnold Wills Group - the UK’s largest manufacturer of fashion belts, braces and leather goods supplying the multiple retail sector.

In 1999 Magnificent Mouchoirs the London based novelty accessories company was also acquired by the Arnold Wills Group, and in 2004 MagMouch, as it had become known, and Lambournes Sophos Ltd were merged into company – Mag Mouch Sophos. Together they were relocated to the Arnold Wills Head Office and Distribution Centre in Uppingham, Rutland.

Arnold Wills also owned the company Cole Brothers, which had produced bespoke leather goods in London since 1815. This was introduced as a standalone brand in 2004.

In 2005 Arnold Wills acquired the St. George brand from Heath Springs Birmingham – the manufacturer of Elasticated Armbands. Over the past few years the product range has expanded and the brand has evolved into “The St. George Dresswear Range”.

The British Bag Company was launched in 2012 and has seen much success. The range uses British Fabrics across Bags and Accessories, designed to encompass the quintessential English look.
