With Winter comes deep beautiful fabrics, layering and warmth and when it comes to suiting, it’s always a bit of a trick to get right.
The Autumn Winter 2018 collection from men’s tailor Institchu master the combination of modern tailoring with luxe winter styling to give an option that does not just look smart, but is actually warm! Utilising rich fabrics like Australian merino wools and cashmere in beautiful tonal Winter shades, there are over 28 Winter weight fabrics to choose from. Deep navy, classic black, taupes and olives all feature throughout the Winter collection. And for me? It’s the layers that make these Winter looks go together. Taupe grey double-breasted jackets with black pants and deep grey scarves, pale grey suiting with dark navy overcoats, a charcoal suit combined with a bright shirt of blue and plenty of layers of grey. These are the looks that inspire a Winter style of your own.
With the Institchu process, one can either choose from the pre-made items or work to customise your own piece, choosing the fabric, the details (down to the lapel, the lining and buttons- you dream it!) for your own personalised look. The brand is a go-to for weddings too- the brand offering personal sessions for the bridal party (complete with whiskey) to overcome the hurdle of an ill-fitting suit.
The new’s collection is available from or Institchu website or showrooms now.
