AW19 Essential Edit

Any excuse to get closer

The three knitwear staples you shouldn’t go without. Fine-knit sweaters to see you through blustery autumn weather; heavy-duty jumpers for fireside conversations in December.


Chunky Knits

Come winter, a thick oversized jumper is everything: necessary to keep you warm, and also a casual addition to your seasonal look. Partner it with staples such as denim and trainers, then add some personality with a peacoat, Parka or sub-zero favourite, the down coat. Peacoats channel the nautical aesthetic that style heroes such as Robert Redford and Steve McQueen favoured. For ultimate warmth, thermals, chunky knit with puffa coat on top are the answer. Whatever the look, a chunky knit fits seamlessly into it. Check out Reiss, Ben Sherman and Crew Clothing for styles that’ll never go out of fashion.  


Turtle Necks
Sure, keeping your extremities warm is sensible during the cooler months, but have you seen 007’s styling of the turtleneck? Bond’s sartorial choice goes way beyond functionality. Take a leaf out of his book and wear a close-fitting black or grey style like Ben Sherman's with a pair of slick sunglasses and a lightweight down jacket when you’re skiing. For a more city-smart occasion, emulate Paul Newman with a blazer or add some edge with a ‘70s-inspired leather jacket. From David Beckham to Armie Hammer, these looks still have an A-List approval rating today. Find your perfect match from Reiss or Moss Bros – it’ll be the best styling decision you’ve made all year.  

Prints & Patterns
Dare to be different by purchasing some statement knitwear. Prints and patterns are a great way to introduce originality to your outfit. Go for block colours from Timberland, intricate cable knits, stripes or something more daring by Lacoste. For example, a relaxed ‘90s-vibe men’s cardigan is seriously vintage-cool. Or take your inspiration from the ‘80s and search for subtly clashing shades. Keeping those colours understated will bring things up-to-date. This season, be bold and dare to be different.
