It doesn’t get much more British than driving a Jaguar MkII to Benjamin Britten’s house wearing a suit made on Savile Row. But then brands don’t come much more British than Gieves & Hawkes, with its trio of royal warrants for HM The Queen, HRH The Duke of Edinburgh and HRH The Prince of Wales.
The suiting stalwart has looked to the glamour of the English summer sporting season for its latest collection, with a young Prince Charles providing further inspiration. English navy, beige and tan are the prevailing shades, made from cool, lightweight worsteads for formal looks, and neutral linens for a more relaxed aesthetic.
A further summer freshen-up comes in the form of accessories in a playful colour palette of sky blue and pale pink combined with touches of classic sporting shades – think polo red, British racing green and buttercup yellow. Perfect clothes to complement this green and pleasant land. gievesandhawkes.com
