SPRING JACKETS: THIS SEASON'S TOP STYLES - Stutterheim

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.

JAPANESE STYLE AT PEGGS & SON.

To us Europeans, there is something intriguing and beguiling about Japan, its people and their customs. The ability to apply focus to one specific area has led to some incredible craftsmanship and unrivalled attention to detail. This pursuit of excellence has meant huge leaps forward in technology and industry but, on the flip side, it has resulted in bizarre creations such as the Lonely Man Pillow.

Another area where the Japanese excel is clothing and two of the most recent labels to arrive in store, orSlow and Nanamica, are perfect examples of this. Both have different styles and ways of approaching design, but at the root of each brand is a commitment to quality and heritage. Below we have picked out some of our favourite pieces of the season and styled them for looks that we think represent modern Japanese style at its best.

Designer Ichiro Nakatsu is one serious denim hoarder with his collection featuring incredibly rare and vintage pieces from America, Europe and Japan. The influences from this collection really show in the clothing, especially in the denim and legwear. The vintage shapes of Levi’s can be seen but with an ever so slight modern twist. Add to this impeccable fabric quality and you have denim suitable for even the most discerning of selvedge connoisseurs.

When it comes to Japanese style, it would be hard to ignore the clothing and accessories of fellow compatriots Porter, Nanamica, Buzz Rickson’s and Edwin. With these three brands quality in construction and material choice is what really sets them apart from the crowd.

Porter bags are durable, robust and have an undeniable look. The jackets and coats from Nanamica take classic shapes and cuts and rework them with modern materials and fabrics. Buzz Rickson’s are a label obsessed with the US military and recreate some of the most iconic styles from the past 70 years. Edwin’s jeans uses all the best elements of iconic Levi’s and Lee models and elevates them to new levels thanks to the premium denim that has been crafted on vintage looms.
