Colour and texture are to the fore in the Chester Barrie jacket collection. Urban tweeds have drape and warmth. They come in petrol blue, russet and moss green as well as the more classic hues. Checks and tartans also play their part bringing highlight tones and surface interest. The standout piece though is the camel blazer – a very modern interpretation of an almost forgotten classic.

The Chester Barrie tailoring story majors on bringing elegance to suit wearing. English and Italians cloths (including some luxurious West Country flannels) have substance but are soft to the touch. Texture is an important element – especially with tweeds and Prince of Wales checks – but it is the construction that makes it distinctive. Structured suits are strong of shoulder and sculpted at the chest; the unstructured tailoring moulds to the body without restricting movement. Both flatter and enhance; the shallow armhole allows for greater freedom of movement and a trimmer appearance.

And finally the ultra-classic is celebrated by adding a contemporary sophistication to tuxedos and smoking jackets. Velvets in chocolate, navy and coal black are fashioned into modern smoking jackets with rich, deep Mogador shawl collars in complementary tones; fine French navy corduroy becomes a low-fastening double-breasted tux – inspired by the Duke of Windsor; and the Black Watch tartan double-breasted jacket will stand out in any formal situation.
