Take a hike! We present two new items that draw on a golden age of rugged, vibrant outdoor clothing.
Alongside our classic shirts, ties and tailoring, our Spring / Summer 2019 season has seen a greater emphasis on the kinds of casual, sporty clothes that today are as much a staple of men’s wardrobes as the white shirt or the navy suit. Last week we looked at our new rugby shirts, designed in Somerset, and made in Japan. This time around we’re looking at two new additions to our repertoire: the Hiking Jersey, and the Hiking Shirt.
As their names suggest, these pieces are redolent of the outdoors, drawing inspiration from the kind of rugged, brightly-coloured activewear that belongs to an earlier era (in the case of the Hiking Shirt, the design is a refined update on a much-loved – and much-worn – item that has been hanging in Michael Hill’s wardrobe for more than a decade).
