MASCULINE TAILORING, a confident use of colour and an elevated attention to detail combine to shape this season’s smart style philosophy.

 

ALWAYS PREPARED

There’s no reason to let standards slip, even when you’re off-duty. Pair refined knitwear in heritage hues with traditionally tailored blazers and jackets. Shop now

Layered up

Start with your outerwear and work backwards – select colours and textures to complement your top layer.

Old-school charm

The classics never age, but this season’s cords have been reinterpreted with a rich colour scheme.

On a roll

Roll-neck jumpers are enjoying a style revival – they work best under a structured blazer.

Made to last

Quality footwear is always a sound investment. Each pair of these Best of British boots takes around eight weeks to make.

Double vision

Super-sophisticated
double-breasted overcoats have
an undeniably dandyish charm.

Man about town

Don’t confine power dressing to the office. Make sure you look the business on your morning commute, in well-cut outerwear and statement finishing touches.

  • WEATHER READY

    Suave and commute-friendly, a lightweight raincoat is a winter essential. A formal style that can be worn over a suit is the most useful.
