A perfect piece of tailoring should feature in any gentleman’s wardrobe and with the recent LC:M presentations there is plenty on offer to please all styles and tastes
Founded in 2000, Lutwyche are already giving luxury British tailoring a new lease of life without losing any of the fine detail and precision that is expected from the likes of Savile Row. Their AW15 collection was filled with colour, checks and focussed very much on separates that can be worked together for a fun and fresh tailored look. “Being part of the London Collections: Men event is very special and important for us as a brand and we wanted to deliver a showcase that mixed our heritage and British style with modernity,” said Owner and Creative Director, Tony Lutwyche. With the collection consisting of everything from ties to waistcoats and dinner jackets there is something for any age and lifestyle. lutwyche.co.uk
A Suit To Travel In
Paul Smith is known for his signature design features and clean-cut tailoring and his AW15 presentation certainly didn’t disappoint. A Suit To Travel In allows you to move around freely whilst still maintaining a crisp and smart suit. The use of dynamic tailoring is created with a high-twist 100% wool yarn and quick recovery crease-resistant cloth that also comes with water repellent qualities. It means you can scrunch it up into your gym bag or perform some acrobatics (if the mood takes you) and still wear it without a worry. With all this functionality, the design isn’t overlooked either with the incorporation of a split melton collar and contrast panels. Limited preview sale from paulsmith.com with worldwide availability following in May 2015.
Stepping away from the traditionalist feel of tailoring but still maintaining the craft, Burberry’s AW15 showcase was a stunning array of fabrics, prints and colour. From corduroy to linen, paisley to camouflage and purple to ochre, it’s a perfect collection for the gent who is looking to revamp their look or bring an old piece of tailoring into the modern age. For instance, corduroy doesn’t have to be left for the countryside, but styled with a printed scarf and smart holdall it instantly becomes city-chic. burberry.com
