When a brand can lay claim to have provided tailored classics for the likes of Winston Churchill, The Beatles, countless celebrities and hold two Royal Warrants (a mark of recognition to those who have supplied goods or services to senior members of the Royal Family); you know that the end product is going to offer timeless style and excellent craftsmanship.
Austin Reed, to put it simply, is a quintessential British brand epitomising luxury and British tailoring. For the past 112 years, Austin Reed has perfected classic British design. It is this British indulgence throughout Austin Reed’s history that is evident in their new season look book.
Austin Reed’s AW12 collection is defined by heritage and thus is more noticeable than previous collections. With pronounced overchecks, heavy British flannels in winter greys and navy, the look is historic and pristine.
A classic Prince of Wales check suit exudes class whilst a contemporary take on traditional suiting can be seen in the three-piece flannel thick chalk stripe in navy takes.
For outerwear, Austin Reed’s 110 collection nods back to the American 20s gangster style by delivering an imposing single-breasted 3-button overcoat in camel made from 100% Italian wool and a tobacco jacket to boot.
The collection continues – for those wishing to take Austin Reeds sophistication onto the after hours – with the introduction of velvets and smoking jackets giving a hint of decadent styling.
In summary, Austin Reed has created a complete collection to cover every occasion and the result is immaculate.
