On the mannequin today - January 28

One of our Italian suppliers is currently offering us a fantastic wool/cashmere suiting fabric. The fabric is light to wear, but still has some body and thickness (due to the cashmere).
It's a perfect weight for guys wanting a versatile all-year-round suit.

Today we have a sneak at some of the styling for our Winter range. The silhouette is still sharp and tailored. To add interest to a mid-grey we've had the tailor use a slightly darker and textured grey for the lapel and pocket jetting. This is a great way to add an interesting detail without overcooking it.
The jacket is worn with a 5 button waistcoat in a slightly darker herringbone weave (though the same wool/cashmere). And the look is finished with a classic white shirt with mid spread collar and a navy knitted tie.
