WINTER 2017

THE TREND REPORT: TEXTURES

This winter, take layering to a whole new level with the combination of subtle textures. 

Constructing your look is simple: avoid picking pieces that compete with each other too much. Instead, ensure each addition works tonally and adds a different dimension to your outfit.

After all, 'tis the season to get tactile...

SHERPA LINING

They say the key to staying warm is wearing a hat. They've clearly never left the house in a beany hat and vest. That's right, the real key to staying warm is keeping your core covered.

With its thick, bobbly texture, Sherpa lining elevates the classic denim jacket to winter-worthy outerwear. Layer over the season's knit du jour - the rollneck - to cover extra inches and swerve the need for a scarf.

CORDUROY

AW17's menswear collections were clear about one thing: if you only invest in a single texture this season, make it corduroy.

No longer synonymous with 70s geography teachers, wear yours boxy, slim cut and contemporary to nail the modern incarnation

THE ARAN JUMPER

Make scratchy sweaters a thing of the past with knits rich in natural fibres. Soft and breathable, cotton, cashmere and wool blends offer unsurpassed levels of insulation without the dreaded clam.

Traditionally off-white, the Aran knit is characterised by ribbing, cables, textured stitching and bobbles. With all of that going on up top, keep your trousers pared-back. Denim toughens the knit, while chinos help perfect a preppy look.

THE FISHERMAN'S KNIT

The original seafaring sweater is thickly ribbed and muted in palette, making it an ultra-versatile addition to your cold weather wardrobe.

Teaming with durable selvedge denim and heavy-duty workwear boot achieves an authentic, rugged aesthetic.

CASHMERE

Small, unconventional updates put the 'modern' in military. With its wear-anywhere, high-low appeal, the classic bomber's cinched in waistband is relaxed for a contemporary boxy fit
