SIMON CARTER: FW20 COLLECTION
Velvet’s never really gone out of style. From pre-war black tie, through Roger Moore in the Persuaders, it’s been with us. The cloth in this jacket comes from Italy’s Pontoglio and I honestly don’t think there’s a finer mill. The nap is so fine and beautiful to the touch and gives this blue an almost electric iridescence. Wear it with a crisp white shirt open at the neck and good jeans and a snappy pocket square.
This season Simon Carter bridges that awkward gap between indoor and out withe the the ‘Holt’ Workwear jacket in herringbone tweed, this is the jacket your coat hook has been waiting for. Simon Carter used Moon’s Yorkshire herringbone tweed and it’s made in London so proudly all British. The flecked cloth means it’ll work with every trouser known to man. Perfect to sling in the back of the Land Rover or for a quick pop to the shops.
It’s back to Britain when it comes to fine working man’s jacket. The ‘Holt’ Workwear jacket in cord is made in thick no-nonsense corduroy by Brisbane Moss and manufactured in London. It neatly bridges the gap between work and play with handy patch pockets and a button down one for essentials. This is a garment that will improve with age. Think less 70’s history teacher but more Ernest Hemingway off to fight in the Spanish Civil War.
