Just had to share these with you all!!!
Timothy Everest embarks on a journey to dicover a new concept in men’s clothing, one that seeks to re-define the language and boundaries traditionally used to delineate ‘tailoring’ from ‘casual’ and ‘bespoke’ from ‘fashion’. The goal? To create a collection of immaculately crafted clothes that take the skill and heritage of tailoring and apply them to the more everyday pieces that have become the staples of the modern man’s wardrobe.
Pieces in the collection run from Albany collar cotton shirts with sleek concealed-button fronts to expertly tailored jeans and distinctive outerwear pieces such as an unlined cropped wool jacket and a long, structured overcoat. The collection also features luxurious t-shirts and chunky heavy-gauge linen knits, with hand-finished button details along the shoulder placket.
Individuality is at the heart of the project: ‘It’s about being you, only better,’ explained Everest. ‘It’s not about fashion, or about seasons – each piece is designed to last for ever. This collection is a series of subtly beautiful components – tools almost – that any individual can layer up and combine in any number of ways to create their own look.’
This is a wardrobe designed to work for the wearer – these are not clothes kept in the wardrobe, but ones worn every day – in a variety of ways and styles. There is, however, nothing basic about the collection. Each piece has been carefully crafted and made to fit the contours of the body.
London is also central to the inspiration behind the line. Each piece evokes the capital’s proud tailoring roots, from craftsman on Savile Row to the city tailors of Spitalfields, with details such as hand-sewn sprat’s heads, cross-grain ribbon finishing and contrast lapels. The silhouettes of the collection also echo the sophisticated edge of London men’s style.
