Gayle and John Robinson started the business in 2002 from their basement flat in Teignmouth, Devon, with just one style, the original Lazy Jacks drill shirt. From there the range has grown to include something for everyone, whether you are 1 or 100. The name Lazy Jacks originates from the sailing fraternity, they are ropes used on yachts and boats to assist in sail handling and coincidentally at the time, John and Gayle owned a very lazy cat called Jack, which seemed to confirm that they should call the business Lazy Jacks. Lazy Jacks strives to use the finest quality fabrics with the majority being 100% cotton. Shop for Lazy Jacks at Ann's Cottage.
