In most modern workplaces, ‘casual Friday’ now takes place five days a week. But that’s not to say the suit no longer has its place in the wardrobe, it has just evolved. Tailoring 2.0, if you will.
For anyone currently scratching their head in bemusement at what this means, take lead from independent e-tail platform Farfetch.
As part of the site’s AW16 offering, and to coincide with the one-year anniversary of launching menswear, it has pulled together a series of essential items that redefine the traditional wardrobe staple.
The edit combines classic pieces from the likes of French label Ami and Italian brand Brunello Cucinelli, with sleek sportswear items from Common Projects, Nike and APC as well as others from Incotex, Lanvin and E.Tautz.
What’s more, an accompanying lookbook shows how to rethink the suit for the modern day without all the pressure of needing to be some kind of sartorial know-it-all.
Welcome to the new age of tailoring.
The full Modern Tailoring edit is available now at Farfetch, prices start from £84 for t-shirts and £167 for trousers.
