From woolly coats that add both warmth and refinement to an outfit, to comfortable jumpers that are smart enough to wear for any occasion, wool is a winter must-have.
There’s a reason it has been a fabric of choice for centuries – it’s practical, warm and looks good in every setting. Plus it comes from a natural source and comes in lots of different finishes, from fine knit cashmere jumpers through to pure wool suits. Add some texture to your outfit with a chunky knit, choose to layer it up in a fine knit merino jumper, or go head to toe wool in a luxurious pinstripe wool suit. Our camel brushed overcoat does wonders as a top layer – made from 100% wool in a brushed finish, it can easily work as an extension of your suiting, but can uplift a casual outfit too.
You might see tweed as a rather traditional choice of fabric. And while that may often be the case, tweed doesn’t have to feel old fashioned. Our tweed suits offer timeless elegance, whether you’re wearing them somewhere formal or as part of a more casual look. Tweed has a slightly rustic, heritage feel that makes it good for dressing up or down – and it’s not just for the countryside.
If you’re wearing tweed to a winter wedding, go for a macro herringbone weave like our slim fit brown tweed suit. It feels slightly more contemporary than a larger weave, and can be worn as a three piece, two piece or as separates. If you’re going for a rustic feel, accessorise with a tweed baker boy cap. For more casual looks, tweed trousers go particularly well with chunky knitwear and boots, so if you want to add some texture into your outfit, tweed is the way to go. It has a coarser, more rugged feel that’s warm and cosy, and works especially well in the colder months.
Soft, velvety and luxurious, moleskin is also known for being hardwearing and great for everyday wear. It also drapes really well, making it a tailoring favourite too.
Beyond its durability, moleskin can elevate almost any outfit. From tailored moleskin trousers through to shirts and shackets, it’s cosy, soft to the touch and feels great against your skin. Our moleskin overshirt is crafted from 100% cotton and has a sateen effect, offering a super-soft hand feel that makes it a great winter layering piece.
