Summer 2015

This season, our Best of British collection takes its inspiration from the heady summers of the 1970s and translates it into a range of impeccably styled, luxury menswear classics. The confident, masculine and suave collection is based on a sophisticated and uplifting palette of stone, lilac, indigo and sky blue. The range is a capsule of beautiful smart summer pieces made from a hand-picked group of the most immaculate materials to exacting standard by some of Britain’s foremost manufacturers. This level of craftsmanship and finish can only be found in Great Britain

Fine finishing touches

Every last detail has been considered with an exacting eye, creating a tight edit of key summer accessories and shoes. Of particular note is the new suede brogue in grey, navy and stone – an ideal shoe for the season’s events and smarter occasions – and the checked holdall, a luxurious but fun piece of luggage. Bevelled gentleman's corners, hand-burnishing, leather lining and vulcanised rubber tips all nod to the footwear range’s use of traditional artisan techniques. As you’d expect, the hides and fabrics found in the collection are of the highest quality available

Pristine pastels

Soft summer shades are employed throughout the collection, with levels of sky blue, stone, lilac and white subtly making a statement. Tone-on-tone looks are key, the lighter colours giving the smart tailoring and elegant separates a breezy but put together feel

Tasteful tailoring

Expert tailoring is still at the heart of the Best of British range. Hand-finishing ensures our suits are a cut above the rest. Traditional hand-tacking gives a flawless silhouette while hand-sewn buttons and lining guarantee a durable, luxury finish. Linen is central to the summery feel, coming in the soft tones that permeate the rest of the range as well as strong herringbone patterns. Confident windowpane, gingham and Prince of Wales checks add character to the plush cotton and wool pieces
