After so many seasons of bright and vivid colours, it seems we’re finally ready to embrace good ol’ black-and-white again.  While we all like a bit of colour in the summer, we’ve always thought autumn and winter should be more about textures, and the easiest way to wear texture is with a monochrome palette.  While the monochrome looks at houses such as Dior has been all about a very slick style this season, concentrating on crisp lines with minimal texture other than a clean pinstripe, we do think it’s a great opportunity to throw on a textured tie with a print or in a knit fabric.  We also like the look for work when worn with a textured white shirt, such as our #12 London shirt with a mini herringbone twill.  For evening, opt instead of clean fabrics which can be accessorised with interesting elements such as a collar pin or a waistcoat.  Pair the look with our #5 Paris shirt.
