Modesty aside, we have some great shirts this season, don’t we? I love them all. But our marketing team want me to pick out three favourites (just three!?) from the season. Alright. Here they are.
First up, Caswell (above). A stunning shirt; you’ll spot it all over our AW16 lookbook. This shirt features a woven striped fabric we designed and wove with one of our favourite Portuguese mills. This is the kind of thing I love: working with world-class fabric technicians to make something that’s genuinely one-of-a-kind. Shop Caswell Shirts.
Then onto something a bit more minimal. I love a clean, simple grandad shirt. In the Woburn fabric here it’s a thing of beauty. Woburn is a fairly weighty brushed cotton, meaning it’s warm, it’s soft and it’ll age brilliantly. There are so many outfits this shirt works with that I won’t even start. Shop Grandad Shirts in Woburn.
And finally, the Lupin Charcoal. I make no apologies that two of my three picks today are grey. Grey is great: different from the white/blue norm without being attention-seeking. And this is a lovely, lovely fabric, thanks to its woven texture. Shop shirts & ties in the Lupin fabric.
…Ask me again tomorrow, you’d probably get a different three. So it goes.
