Everything is made from the finest materials and cloth with careful thought into the product development and hand made in Britain ethos at the factory in Manchester. Each season it is evident Nick’s signature style is carried throughout the collection drawing inspiration from Private Jack White’s Wardrobe classic military clothing and combining Nick’s passion for motorsports.
The brands utilises the finest British materials and craftsmanship, sourcing fabrics from local mills and employing traditional manual production techniques.
Previewing the collection is always a pleasure as everything is presented so immaculately. The pieces were about leisure wear this season as models carry in their hands travel boarding passes and the functional smart casual separates are perfectly suited while in transit.

A beige double breasted waist coat caught my eye which was matched with a pair of chino’s shows each piece can be styled for versatile looks. One look which stood out was how to wear a necktie over the top of a smart piece knitwear with a poplin shirt underneath was contemporary.
The outfit was finished off with a smart trilby hat to add some quintessential charm. Weekend looks were leisurewear focused with a range of casual separates such as linen cotton shorts, sweaters, smart denim jackets and tailored waistcoat styles. Colour palettes were beige, ecru, deep dark navy blue and caramel brown gave that rustic vintage feel of nostalgia.

Any colour as long as it’s pink in the true sense that is the signature colour of the brand. No surprises there as the presentation of the collection was immaculate as usual in its regency style setting of a Georgian Town House.
Models once again take centre stage wearing pieces from the new collection’s exquisite luxury tailoring, shirts, accessories including neck ties, pocket squares, cufflinks and men’s underwear. Not forgetting the surprise VIP guest appearance from Model Toby Huntington-Whiteley.

The key looks on display during the presentation for Spring Summer were formal and informal options to suit all occasions teamed with boxer shorts and knee high socks were appropriate for the sweltering heat of a mid summers day.
Products on display evoked luxury and sophistication which the brand is synonymous for creating immaculate shirting for the discerning gentlemen. Thomas Pink goes back to business at LCM with a Risky Business inspired presentation.
One of our favourite items has to be a luxury imperial classic 200s shirts, the double cuff Redmond stripe and made in England. Thomas Pink Shirts are made from renowned mills and exclusive fabrics where attention to detail is unrivalled. Traditional methods are used as well as time honoured craftsmanship where the collars are hand turned.

It’s time to start thinking what to wear to this summer’s seasonal events commencing the Quintessentially English Social Calendar.
Tiger of Sweden

Tiger of Sweden presents a regal entrance with Baroque opulence for this season as models walk the runway to classical Tudor music mixed with urban break beats.
The exterior set design of the catwalk was so impressive it felt you were transported to the palace of Versailles in the late 17th century. It was then during this period Architect Nicodemus Tessin based his designs for Sweden’s new royal palace Kungliga Slottet.
Elements of monochrome colour palette kept the collection fresh, contemporary and minimal with short cropped utilitarian jackets contrast well with wide leg, baggy, and kick flare trousers.
This eclectic mix of style goes well together as a cohesive collection that mirrors Tigers attention to detail and sharp cuts. For this season the brand’s attitude of modernity is brought to life through Sweden’s rich cultural history yet still maintains understated at heart.
