A Tweed and Cable Knit Story

Good things come in threes. This is an aphorism that can apply to a new job, house and shiny Mercedes-Benz S-Class landing in your driveway within the space of a month (lucky you). It can also apply to the arrival of a trio of beautifully considered pieces of autumn-ready menswear, which is exactly what we have here.

First up is our Reversible Tweed-Cotton Double-Breasted Raglan Mac. Made in Italy, it combines a Yorkshire woollen houndstooth check tweed on one side, with a water-resistant cotton spun in Como on the other. Practical, understated features include generous flapped pockets, genuine horn buttons, a locker loop, raglan sleeves and a full length collar that is just waiting to be popped against the cold and rain. A coat to make you feel like a French movie star or a noir detective. Possibly at the same time.

There are also a range of new tweed jackets on offer, in regal Prince of Wales check; a subtle brown houndstooth; grey herringbone and deep olive green. All are made in Italy from 100% wool tweed with an unlined body and half-canvas construction, resulting in a soft and modern blazer. Further details include twin front darts, functioning cuffs, double vents, and a discreet patch ticket pocket. A tweed jacket for every eventuality.

Finally, our Navy Cashmere Blend Cable Knit V Neck Jumper is knitted on the Adriatic coast (close your eyes and smell the citrus). A luxurious cashmere blend that is soft, but can also handle a bit of an October's day beating. It has cable motifs runing down the body for a nautical touch; set-in-sleeves, ribbed cuffs and hems and a reinforced collar to prevent any pesky sagging.
