Spring, dare we say it, is on the way. The evenings are beginning to stretch out that little bit longer and the sun’s rays seem just that little bit more powerful. We can always tell when spring is on the way when we begin to put away the heavy down coats for the winter and begin the search for lighter styles more suited for the change in weather.
Here in store we have received a fine selection of spring appropriate outerwear, covering all types of styles from smart to workwear, bomber jackets to waterproof coats. A highlight for us is the latest selection of raincoats from Swedish label Stutterheim. Their block striped Stockholm model has particularly caught our eye. Not only do we love the pattern, but thanks to the rubberised cotton construction and welded seams, it is also completely waterproof, something essential in the temperamental British spring weather.
Parisian label A.P.C. continue to take influence from classic military garments and the Blouson Alain shown below is their take on the iconic MA-1 flight jacket. The dark navy exterior has been cut from a cotton blend and the interior is fully lined. The front is fastened with a Riri zip that leads to a shawl collar in traditional fashion and two pockets are located on the hips. Completing matters is the obligatory pocket detailing on the upper left arm.
As we enter the season of weddings, it’s also important to keep something a little more formal in your wardrobe. For this, Engineered Garments have matters covered with their Andover Jacket. Cut from lightweight 100% cotton, it comes in a navy colourway and classic details such as the four external pockets, three-button fastening and notched lapel are all present. However, what makes this jacket for us is the fit. Perfectly cut, it remains unstructured but spans the divide between smart and casual perfectly.
