Welcome to the Twenties, Old Sport...
The freedom and creativity that gentlemen of the era embraced is something that we should all admire, so we thought we’d delve a little deeper and look at some key influences as well as how to implement 1920s inspired style into a modern wardrobe.
Jay Gatsby famously wore a pink suit in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel. The stand out piece from the collection has to be the pink suit. You will stand out from the crowd for all right reasons in this impeccably tailored linen suit. The pastel pink hue is subtle and the suit is crafted from pure linen, making it perfect for all summer occasions. Team it with a magenta striped tie, a crisp white shirt and a silk pocket square.
A three piece linen suit in neutral beige will allow you to channel your inner Jay Gatsby. It’s extremely versatile so you’ll be able to wear it for every summer event. Add a classic Windsor collar shirt – this collar style was popularised during the twenties. Hawes & Curtis developed the iconic Windsor collar which became an integral part of British fashion. Complete the look with a burgundy silk tie and cufflinks.
In the Twenties patterns were distinctive, which could be big plaids, checks, windowpane, and thick shadow stripes or thin pinstripes. Team a check waistcoat with a fitted black shirt and a silk bow tie for a contemporary twist on 1920s style.
For a more casual take on twenties dressing, style grey flannel trousers with green braces. A textured patterned tie and a contrast white collar shirt will complete the look. The braces will add a vintage twist to this contemporary ensemble.
