Styling the Merino Sport Shirt in Olive

Our merino sport shirt comes in a versatile, muted and dark, olive colour. Given its dark shade, it goes seamlessly with other dark items in a different colour, or with other items in a light colour.

Riviera Style with our Knitwear

History of the Riviera Style The “Riviera Style” refers to a style that evolved over the course of a few decades by affluent holidaymakers from around the world, who would travel to the French and Italian Riviera to spend their summers starting from the turn of the century. The items of clothing are a mix of influences, due to the mix of people from different backgrounds that ended up congregating on the riviera, and included clothing from sportswear, clothing for sailing, civilian wear, even military wear. Here is our take on the breton stripe: It was then further glamourised by the Hollywood elite in the 50s and 60s - think Alain Delon in Purple Noon or Cary Grant in How...

Styling the Cashmere Silk Tennis Polo in Navy

The cashmere silk tennis polo is a great choice for the summer time, especially when the weather is still fluctuating between sunshine one moment and wind and rain the next. The reason is that unlike ordinary polos that are usually made using cotton, cashmere silk is more temperature regulating and moisture-wicking - this means that it’ll keep you warm if you get hit with a sudden spell of wind and rain, but you also wouldn’t overheat when the sun comes back out again.

It’s also designed with a slightly longer short sleeve for a more...

Styling the Cashmere Cotton Collegiate Raglan Sweatshirt

Ivy League Roots The cashmere cotton collegiate sweatshirt is inspired by the traditional Ivy League sweatshirts first own by footballers at the turn of the century in the US. Back then, the material would have been made in a thick cotton, but critically, it was designed to have a longer ribbed hem and cuffs, and often with raglan shoulder to allow for ease of movement. Our version of the collegiate sweatshirt adopts these original features including the raglan shoulder, but we’ve made a luxury version of it, using a special blend of cashmere with cotton that achieves the perfect balance between the remarkable hand feel of cashmere and the sporty resilience of cotton. It’s the perfect garment for those who...
