Christmas Gift Guide
’Tis the season of giving… and with the official Christmas countdown about to commence, allow us to present our ‘Top Picks’ Christmas Gift Guide.
1. THE OVERCOAT, FROM £895
Taking inspiration from HRH Prince of Wales, as portrayed by Jack Farthing in Pablo Larraín’s Spencer (read our Spencer journal post for more), opt for a bespoke double breasted overcoat in a sturdy tweed to keep the cold at bay this winter. Cut by our very own Head Cutter, the double breasted tweed overcoat seen on screen is an almost exact replica of the overcoat worn by HRH Prince of Wales, since the 1980s. When designing yours, opt for some finer details: deep patch pockets and turned back cuffs for a coat with the Royal seal of approval.
2. THE SHIRT, FROM £125
A soft, brushed cotton shirt is a no brainer at this time of year. A cosy seasonal favourite, our Ready to Wear version is crafted in luxurious brushed cotton twill with a supremely soft handle and smooth finish. Available in four colour ways – soft cream, petrol blue, sky blue herringbone and grey herringbone. Bespoke options are also available.
3. THE BESPOKE EXPERIENCE, FROM £150
Struggling to come up with a gift for that person who seems to have it all? A unique, bespoke tailoring experience is the answer. Simply choose the garment you’d like to gift – from bespoke overcoats, suits, tailored separates to bespoke shirts – and let the experience begin. All the receiver has to do is book their initial consultation and we’ll take care of the rest.
4. WINTER WHITE CORDUROY
Our Ready to Wear corduroy trousers in winter white (£225) are a decadent take on a traditional style. Combining a flattering silhouette with the plushest corduroy, they’ll pair perfectly with knits for an overtly luxurious look. Top tip: No need to be precious – the more they’re worn, the better they look.
Pair with our take on the classic Safari Jacket in off white (£645). Cut in super soft corduroy, with 3% stretch, it has a luxuriously fine handle providing excellent comfort. Unlined and deconstructed, with four front buttons, an internal drawstring, four large patch pockets and tab cuffs, the jacket has been styled for an off-duty, relaxed look.
5. BARON WEEKEND BAG, £420
Travel in style with Baron’s weekend bag in brown suede. The perfect companion for overnight stays or just heading to the gym. With approved carry-on luggage dimensions, it’s an ideal choice for the jet setter in your life.
