Guillotine Conquers Normandy……

Why would a hotel owner from Normandy choose to wear a Guillotine England Gilet? There are many stories behind why people choose to buy our particular Gilets, but this is one of our favourites.

People often bypass Normandy en route to the more popular regions of France. This July Guillotine England had the pleasure of visiting Hotel L’Erguillere. This stunning hotel is set in the beautiful Cotentin region of Normandy at the tip of La Hague and is owned by proud Guillotine England Gilet wearer, Nicolas Chanu and his family.

 

Due to a natural and exceptional setting, this 3-star hotel at the end of the world is a wonderful destination to enjoy the pleasures of the tides, sea spray, sun and wind with Port Racine, the smallest port in France, at the bottom of the garden …..

“Design and REAL quality. In 30 years I’m sure I will still wear them.”

Nicolas was one of our first customers when we set up 5 years ago and he has been a loyal Guillotine England Gilet wearer ever since!
There are many stories behind why people choose to buy our particular Gilets, but this is one of our favourites. Over a sumptuous glass of Pinot, we asked Nicolas why he chose Guillotine England for his Gilet in particular?

By seeing a picture of David Cameron and François Hollande having a drink at the bar of the Swan Inn, in Gloucestershire. The landlord was wearing a Guillotine Gilet.”

“I thought that is the perfect outfit for an English country gentleman and landlord, so I started to search the internet for the same Gilet.”

This was no easy task and it took Nicolas several months of surfing the net before he managed to track down Guillotine-England and order his first Gilet.

Nicolas wears his Guillotine England Gilet at work because the smart casual style is simply perfect for his image as a boutique hotel owner.

“Our boutique hotel focuses on the service. We warmly welcome our customers as friends & family and my Gilet reinforces the casual nature of our relationship.”

Before we left we asked him why he chose Guillotine England for his Gilet.

“Design and REAL quality. In 30 years I’m sure I will still wear them.”
