A Fair Price to Pay The old adage 'you get what you pay for' rarely rings true in the world of clothing. It does at Private White V.C. where we’ve been cutting our cloth and creating garments for over 100 years. We make outerwear we consider superior to anything produced in any other factory in the world. Our pricing is fair - not cheap, but certainly not overpriced. And we want you to know what you pay for, so we outline exactly where your money goes when you invest in your Private White V.C. clothing. But we can’t put a price on expertise and experience, on the learning that has been passed down through generations. That’s the gold dust we sprinkle on each garment that leaves our factory. You will recognise it when you wear your Private White V.C. coat for the very first time. You’ll walk a little taller, with pride and satisfaction. It’s a good feeling. Priceless.
