High street suiting staple Moss Bros are demanding a visit or two for Autumn Winter ‘16, with a super slick collection of relaxed and sharp tailoring that answers the ever changing demands of modern men.
Even if you’re not one to go for a smarter look, Moss Bros provide tonnes of ways to integrate touches of class and traditionalism into a contemporary wardrobe, making this lookbook just as much about Moss Bros pieces as it is about great, enduring outfits.
Think upturned trousers with Converse and plain tees under Blazers. It’s still a suit, but a suit with comfortable, familiar touches so you aren’t left feeling like you’re about to walk into a job interview. By considering everything formalwear offers and working it into your wardrobe, you’re able to open your eyes to a load of assured, winter-ready ways of everyday dressing.
The cooler season(s) ahead provide opportunity to get back in touch with our personal favourites - wool and tweed - with herringbone used in oh-so modern tailored fits, and even soft grey patterns worked into slim suits for an innovative little twist.
One thing that I miss during Spring/ Summer is the ability to layer, which definitely comes from a lifetime in the UK. Moss Bros’ classic tailored coats have got me particularly excited, then. Coming in camel, navy and a grey Prince of Wales check, they’re a true winter staple, perfect for layering all Winter long. A truly versatile piece, the tailored coat works well with a scarf, jeans and trainers for those chilly Autumn shopping trips, but really come into their own when worn with a classic 3-piece in the evening.
On the whole, the cut of Moss Bros AW suits are super sharp, so nice they’re almost cocky, at times worn interestingly with white socks in the lookbook to provide contrast against the deep colours and interesting checks on offer.
It seems Moss Bros are on a mission to ensure that suits aren’t just reserved for weddings, job interviews and christenings this season, and what a great case they’re making. Tapping into their 165 year heritage of suiting, Moss bros are helping to shape what we’re wearing next season and beyond. Our advice: take note.
