COMMON ILKE VINTAGE'S ethos is to showcase quality vintage product. Well-made garments with a story to tell is what it's all about.

Owner David is about the product. Following a 20 year career working in menswear buying and sourcing roles, David decided to follow his love of vintage and heritage inspired garments and founded COMMON ILKE in 2016. A move to larger premises has made the opening of The General Store in the Saddleworth countryside and the launch of this website possible. 

The concept for the site and store is simple, these are clothes that stand the test of time. They’re all hand-picked by David from a variety of sources and care is taken to get them looking their best, ready for their next owner.

At any one time you may find rare Barbour jackets from the 70s, Woolrich Mackinaw hunting jackets from the 60s, and a large range of vintage military in the collection from WW2 onwards. New stock is sourced regularly and the vast majority is a true one off.

Looking ahead there are plans to add complementary new brands and goods to the website and The General Store

Thanks for reading, we hope you like what you see.
