This season, we are proud to present The London Collection, our newest ready to wear range for AW19. Designed and made in London with influences drawn from our bespoke tailoring heritage, The London Collection is the embodiment of versatility, curated as a contemporary wardrobe staple for today's modern gentleman.
The every man. Versatile. Bold. Strong. Constantly evolving and exceeding all expectations. The man who seeks the nuance and detail of long-held tradition juxtaposed by contemporary thinking. In pursuit of authenticity but pushing the boundaries of innovation.
The London Collection, our newest offering for AW19, is the very embodiment of the every man. The perfect balance of individuality and expression combined with familiarity.
“Over the last 10 years the landscape of menswear, certainly tailoring, has changed considerably. We have seen a step away from the traditional business suit in favour of more versatile garments. Today, men are more inclined to experiment with patterns, colour palettes and textures. We felt it only right that this change in taste was reflected in our latest collection.”
For the jackets, muted colours and earthy tones combined with strong patterns and rich textures to render them the perfect go-to garments for the colder seasons ahead. The trousers – crafted in flannel, corduroy and cavalry twill – are designed as a contemporary take on classic styles, intended as versatile wardrobe staples to carry you through any occasion. Dressed down with knitwear and sneakers or smartened up with a shirt and classic Oxfords.
With our longstanding commitment to the craft of British tailoring, it was only appropriate that much of this collection was created in London, designed by Benson & Clegg’s Head Cutter Oliver Cross and crafted at our East-London factory by the most skilled artisans. No corners were cut during the process which is reflected in the use of fabrics from the finest cloth houses in Europe.
“It was my ambition that this collection bridged the gap between what we do as bespoke tailors and what we offer with our ready to wear. Our company founders were innovators, pushing the boundaries of menswear. It was important to me that this collection reflected the same philosophy and vision.”
Embodying the shift in sartorial tastes in recent times and reflecting the demands of modern life, The London Collection truly is tailoring made for today.
