Inspired by a true passion for country lifestyle, John Nichols began a lifelong project to create the pinnacle of country and outdoor clothing with the support of his family. Since 1954, the spirit of every distinctive design in Rydale has been in Quality, Reliability & Style. Now into its 3rd generation much has changed, but our families’ love for country sports and outdoor pursuits still remains as strong as ever, so does our mission to deliver excellence in both form and function.
I am a huge fan of 1950s outfit ideas so Rudales history appealed to me
One thing I miss at the moment is going out shopping and the freedom of visiting and wandering around country fairs and shows. I adore finding small businesses that I would never have heard about and have discovered so much fabulous homemade foods and house wear this way. Supporting local is something I love to do and knowing that Rydale still attend Yorkshire shows to sell their items alongside having dedicated stockists across the UK makes them an ideal choice.
Having never ordered online with them before I was thankful for the help I received in sizing etc. The sizes apparently come up a little small so I was told to order the next size up, which I did, and they fit perfectly. Maybe even a little wiggle room but nothing a good country pub lunch won’t fix!
I chose the Ladies cropped Jeans – Ella. Priced at £24.99 these plain crop jeans are the perfect style for summer days. Made from quality stretch denim with traditional zip and button loop fastening and multiple pockets. These are a classic look with comfort fit and have quickly become my go to jeans if I leave the house! They look great with a plain statement t-shirt or blouse but also with a hoody during the colder spells we are being hit with at the moment.
Being a sucker for embroidery I chose the Emily embroidered hoody to wear with the jeans. With nine designs to choose from there is something for everyone, I opted for the navy blue with pink horses and think it resembles a rather well known brand but almost half the price. The quality is superb and this casual hoody looks very country with ribbed cuffs, drawstring hood and beautiful stitching throughout. The hoody is also finished off with a signature leatherette Rydale badge. The ultimate seal of approval. Priced at £34.99 this has to be one of the most comfortable hoodies I own.
Overall I am very impressed with the shopping experience, size, style and overall Rydale experience. I will most definitely be back for more!
I was gifted these items for the purpose of a review, all views and opinions are my own and genuine.
For those who prefer a more traditional home-like experience when on vacation, a timeshare can make sense. If you’ve gotten many years of good use out of your timeshare and now want to get rid of it, a timeshare cancellation company like Timeshare Freedom Group or Lonestar transfer may be able to help.
