In the midst of a new season, revitalising classic everyday items is essential. Here, we have put together the key pieces for the perfect capsule wardrobe to team with your classic white trainers or leather brogues so you’re ready to take on whatever Spring Summer 2014 has in store.
The Everyday Shirt: POLO RALPH LAUREN Linen Shirt
A fundamental piece in every wardrobe, a classic white long sleeve shirt is one of the most versatile pieces you can ever own. This linen button down can be dressed up or down, tucked into formal trousers or with the sleeves rolled up and paired with shorts.
The Smart Trouser: PAUL SMITH MAINLINE Slim Fit Trousers
Refine your sartorial side with a smart pair of slacks that are essential for both the office and formal events. Tailored with a slim leg and finished with zip closure pockets, Paul Smith has mastered a modern take on trousers.
The Bag: MULBERRY Albert Leather Messenger
Mulberry is the go-to brand for leather goods and this soft satchel is the epitome of a refined elegance that will transcend seasons.
The Smart Coat: SCOTCH & SODA Summer Mac
A light overcoat is a must-have come the warmer months and this mid-length mac is the perfect cover-up come rain or shine. Scotch & Soda’s simple design in a time-honoured navy blue makes it a transitional buy ideal for all year round.
The Key Knit: JOHN SMEDLEY Warrick Contrasting Trim Pullover
Steeped in English heritage, John Smedley’s knitwear is of the finest quality and an investment worth making. This classic crew neck features stylish contrasting trims and would sit perfectly with jeans or over a shirt with trousers.
The Weekend Top: SUNSPEL Riveria Polo
A smart, well made polo shirt is a timeless addition to your existing wardrobe. Sunspel have mastered the art of finishing their deceptively simple handmade cotton pieces to the highest standard with the upmost attention to detail.
The Jeans: ARMANI JEANS J21 Jeans
Every man needs to own a well-fitting pair of dark wash jeans. A straight leg cut is a contemporary style that gives a polished finesse to a plain T-shirt or can be interpreted for more formal occasions when paired with a streamlined shirt.
The Casual Jacket: BARACUTA G9 Harrington Jacket
A new brand at Flannels this season, Baracuta’s iconic Harrington jacket encompasses classic British traditionalism and subculture cool with a megastar following (note, Steve McQueen and David Beckham). Update the style for the new season by choosing a contemporary pastel blue hue.
