Roll out the flannel for Holland Esquire Clothing AW12 collection

By Gerald Lynch on October 9th, 2012

Holland Esquire have lifted the covers off their colourful Autumn Winter collection for 2012.

Definitely tailoring to the country gent (Fantastic Mr Fox would do well to memorise these outfits if he enjoys the benefits of keeping hold of his tail), the AW12 collection features coats, jackets, shirts and knitwear.

Put together under the stewardship of master-tailer Nick Holland, it’s a range seemingly designed for layering, with neat side-panelling allowing for a close jacket fit, even when pulled together with the range’s thick wool knits. Here’s hoping that the skull in the bottom right is purely decorative then, and the same goes for that  stuffed pheasant too.

You can pick up items from the range at Flannels or Jules. For a sneak-peek of more of Holland Esquire’s AW12 collection, scroll down to the gallery below. Also, visit the Holland Esquire website for more details.

The nights are pulling in, our tops are getting thicker; Autumn is now in full swing. Reiss are the latest brand to reveal their Autumn/Winter collection, showing off their late-season suits under the heading “The Great Tailoring Movement”.

Taking its cues from the continued retro-renaissance, Reiss are getting in early on The Great Gatsby style-shift that’s sure to follow Baz Luhrmann’s big-screen adaptation of the flapper-filled flick.

As a result, expect to see plenty of tie pins, cufflinks, silk scarves and pocket squares, as well as modern roll necks and bold print shirts. Colours invade the jacket too, with prune shades and mohair blends alongside your regular charcoal greys.

“No longer will suits be stuffed in a garment bag at the back of the wardrobe waiting for ‘good reasons’ to be worn,” say Reiss.

“Instead, they can be worn on a daily basis in the smartest of all guises (three-piece, double-breasted, and with distinct styling), without the batting of an eyelid.

“There are various reasons for this. Firstly, there’s a shift in attitude towards the suit. Men are more at ease viewing it as an everyday piece, or at least they are more willing to wear it than before. It has broken its ‘stuffed suit’ reputation; basically dressing up is cool again. Furthermore, they look better. No longer is a simple style, cut and colour acceptable. This season the suit has moved on, and it offers so much more.”

Frencheye Men's AW12

We’ve just experienced our allotted two days of British summer (barely enough time to shake the cobwebs off our deck shoes and shorts!), and so it’s now time to turn our attention to the Autumn Winter trends for 2012.

Frencheye, a London-based tailoring brand who take their inspiration from continental brands like Zegna and Canali, are touting their latest range of evening wear.

“From desk to dinner” is the Frencheye tagline, and the range certainly has the flexibility to impress both in the boardroom and on a classy night out. We’re particularly keen on the use of velvets and moleskins, though it takes a brave bloke to “tip the velvet”, so to speak.

Musto 1964 Collection: When fashion meets function

By Gerald Lynch on July 3rd, 2012

As anyone who’s ever stood in a field of 80,000 people listening to banging tunes in the middle of a soggy British summer festival can attest to, staying warm and dry at an outdoor gig is often a proper struggle (we’re not talking about you lucky Californian sods who get to bask in the sunshine of Coachella each year). Staying warm, dry and stylish is nigh-on impossible.

The nautical leanings of the new Musto 1964 Collection however looks set to be a nice marriage of both fashion and function.

Taking in items including wax deck coat waterproofs, parkas, chinos and even a beanie that’d make Steve Zissou himself envious, it’s a classic look with items that could slip easily into most casual wardrobes for the coming Autumn and Winter seasons. The range will be available from September.

Scroll down for a closer look at what’s on offer, and hit up www.musto.com for more info.
