There’s a lot to swoon over this year too. However, my ultimate favourites have to be the two types of dogtooth suit that top the gallery on their “New In” page.
The first very nearly converted me to green. I’m not talking politically, but rather my usual aversion to anything involving the colour green. As a fashion colour, it’s just not something I get. What more can I offer here? I literally never wear green! But this one nearly convinced me. Far more up my street is the second dogtooth suit they’ve got here in cream.
But anyway, to my main point: the attention to style on these looks exceptional. It’s unusual, for instance, to have off-the-peg suits with a flap breast pocket, which is an excellent detail that would set this suit apart. Plus, what little we can see of the burgundy suit lining looks exquisite.
And, as regular readers will know, I’ve always been fond of dogtooth. It’s a classic Mod pattern that you can almost guarantee nobody else will be wearing (at least as long as they aren’t also Mods!). Plus, putting it with a more unorthodox cream (as opposed to the usual white) gives this suit an edge over its competitors, again updating it. So full marks for that.
I suspect they might not fly off the shelves per se (how many guys do you see wearing dogtooth suits around these days?), but I think the discerning Mod shopper will know s/he’s into something good with these ones. I'll look to comment on a few other goodies they've got later next week...
