Fashion is something which changes with every season that passes, however there are certain pieces which stand the test of time. Building a collection of timeless pieces in your wardrobe will prevent you from falling into the fast fashion rabbit hole, and in the long run, is both better on your purse strings and much more sustainable.... it's well worth your while! We've compiled a handpicked edit of items which we feel make up a timeless capsule collection. Invest in these, and you'll be sorted for the long haul.
A NAVY SUIT
Let's kick things off with the big ticket item. A navy suit is without a doubt the most versatile you can get and you'll find it fits the dress code for almost every formal event. A classic navy suit will never go out of style and one of good quality will not fail you over the years. Our navy suits are intricately designed in the UK and have always been recognised for their quality.
Now let's talk footwear. Chelsea boots have always been known for their practicality, and rightly so. This sturdy boot style is a winner as not only can they be worn with jeans or chinos for casual events, they can also work with a suit in certain scenarios. Not to mention they're stylish too!
A BUTTON DOWN SHIRT
A good quality white shirt definitely deserves a place in your wardrobe. This basic item will serve you well and is an essential accompaniment to your three piece suit. A spread collar is the most versatile option and a classic oxford weave will go the mile when looked after.
PRINCE OF WALES CHECK
There's a whole variety of checks out there but one which never really disappears from the fashion sphere is a Prince of Wales check. It's made up of a combination of dark, light, small and large stripes which overlap to create a crossing pattern. This traditional check dates back to the 1800s and is often produced in monochrome or brown. A Prince of Wales blazer or trousers are truly season-less.
A PAISLEY TIE
When it comes to neckwear, you can't go wrong with a paisley pattern. Spots or stripes can become the norm and sometimes feel a bit too corporate. The addition of a paisley tie adds a bit of interest. Don't be afraid to pair checks with paisley, this often works a treat, as long as you stick to similar colour schemes. This traditional pattern can be worn season after season.
