    Default never been excelled - anywhere

    Hello,

    I came across this sentence:
    --- was part of the warp and woof of English life, and have never been excelled - anywhere.

    Does this mean:
    --- was a part of life in UK, more than anywhere else.

    --- is the name of a brand.

    Thank you in advance.

    Thank you for your reply Casiopea.

    So then, is it saying that:
    "No other place has the brand been so influential to the people there than in UK"?

    or:
    "no other brand has been so influential to English life than this one"?

    Thank you :)
