This season, New & Lingwood has taken its inspiration from the idealised view of the effortlessly styled English Gentleman, as characterised recently in The Phantom Thread and The Crown.
Founded in 1865, New & Lingwood remains one of London’s longest established and most respected English gentleman’s outfitters, making it the desired destination for perfectly tailored suits, exquisitely tailored shirts, striking footwear and high-quality accessories for a wedding.
The Autumn / Winter collection provides a perfect balance of soft, deconstructed tailoring to the more formal semi-canvas construction, all expertly cut and in perfect proportion. Discreet attention to detail continues to set New & Lingwood apart through linings, trims and even the hidden undercollars of jackets.
A sense of nostalgia pervades the whole collection but with modern interpretations of traditional sports and Norfolk jackets, pleated flannel trousers, brushed cotton shirts and tweed britches; all this in addition to classic city suits in herringbones, chalk stripes and windowpane checks.
New & Lingwood’s insistence for the best in British and Italian cloth never ceases and is seen in the richly textured tweeds, flannels, tartans and cashmere. The coat collection features the finest pure camelhair, baby llama and Merino wool as well as the brand’s perennial covert and reversible raincoat styles. A new, pure cashmere coat in a military style with signature brass skull buttons stands out as a must-have item.
Knitwear can be found this season in cable roll-necks and the very best in Italian cashmere and Merino in a range of new hues which make for the perfect layering piece.
New & Lingwood’s opulent dressing gowns continue to go from strength to strength with new, tropically coloured and jacquard English silks, stunningly printed velvets, depicting hounds and equestrian scenes and the ultimate in ‘oystered’ cashmere from Scotland.
To compliment all of this, New & Lingwood’s usual English-made tie collection of rich jacquards and prints in olives, purples, earth tones to set off tailoring with impeccable, understated levels of English taste are a key part of the collection.
