Meet Kirkby - our cool cargo pants, made right here in Britain by our amazing team.
Thick cotton twill in a sweet but punchy Strawberry Pink.
These great trousers feature a high waist with straight hips, deep hip pockets, back pockets AND side leg pockets! They taper in to a cuffed ankles for that 90’s utility look.
There’s belt loops so you can style them up with or without a belt!
ABOUT THE COLLECTION
Following on from the success of working with our partners and teams in India, we wanted to bring skilled textile jobs back to Yorkshire with the same ethical production ethos. Yorkshire is our home and was once famous for its thriving textile industry - Barnsley itself used to be home to thousands of garment workers and was a huge source of identity and community for the area.
As the factories closed down, it left many skilled workers unemployed and no longer able to use their skills and years of experience and knowledge. We believe creating and sustaining well paid and rewarding jobs is one of the best ways to benefit a community and that’s what we try to do both in India and the UK.
This second Made in Britain collection consists of 9 pieces and includes reworked pini dresses, midi pinis and cargo trousers, featuring signature Lucy & Yak design statements and new colourways lime green and strawberry pink. We’ve used practical hardwearing fabrics (thick 100% cotton twill) from a local Yorkshire family run business who have been developing high quality fabrics since 1901. With large pockets, classic shapes and utility details with modern twists on traditional colour pallets. The collection is shot at an old local colliery, paying homage to the old industries of Barnsley and the communities that live and work here.
This is a limited run of only 90 pieces in each style - we have an expanded collection and further sizing in the pipeline for the future.

Body Measurements (how to find your size):
The twill is a bit see through. I was expecting it to be more thick and opaque but you can see a big difference between where there are multiple layers of the fabric like on the pockets compared to the single layer. I tried on with black pants and you could see them through the fabric. It’s also quite flimsy at the button hole because the fabric isn’t reinforced at all.
The colour is GORGEOUS but they’re just not quite the quality I expected for the price. I’m also not sure why they’ve deviated from the sizing of their trousers like the Addisons and Logans which are sold in waist sizes.
I like the strawberry soft pink, studio photos match the real colour. Good fabric density. Waist is perfect, sits nicely on the butt and crotch. However, I would have prefered leg length to be an inch longer cause it looks too short if you squat or kneel down.
