Heavyweight outerwear has an added focus on utility and colour. A multi-pocket mountain parka is the ultimate in functional winter dressing while a cotton canvas light brown hunting jacket is stylish and more suited to milder climes. A classic cotton twill mac offers a more formal alternative and a wool duffle comes in navy and charcoal marl. Other key colours for outerwear include cranberry and Woodland green, whilst a hooded jacket and gilet comes in navy and green plaid.
As ever, knitwear is at the heart of the collection. Confident Nordic patterns and Fairisle Knits complement the rugged outdoor look. A contrast colour navy and pink Fairisle crew neck jumper is an update on a classic essential while a preppy tank top adopts a more traditional take on the pattern. Cardigans, shawl collars, v-necks, zip through’s and turtle necks come in a colour palette of burnt orange, khaki, grey marl and Admiral blue.
Winter polos and tees offer yet more shots of bold colour and winter hues. Standout pieces include the very seasonal charcoal snowflake polo and the bold and daring jacquard check polo shirts, adorned with the preppy woven patch. Long and short sleeve shirts in variations of plaid and gingham move the outdoor theme forward as do wool shirts in bright red, charcoal marl and Fjord blue.
Trousers come equipped for the winter in hard wearing fabrics, including denim for the first time. Equally stylish is a corduroy jean, with a cotton twill chino providing a more lightweight alternative. The colour palette for trousers includes light chambray, light brown, navy, Hunter green and port.
Another area of development for the Vintage collection lies in accessories. Back for a second season is the range of fine cotton socks, with a Fairisle and fleck knit an addition to the bold block colours and stripes. A plethora of beanies, bobble hats, hunter caps and scarves in check, stripes, block colours and Fairisle come with all three logo options. The bag offer is also extended to include flight bags, helmut bags and briefcases and AW11 sees the introduction of cotton and woven belts.
Footwear too welcomes some new arrivals with a suede brogue in either sand or slate, a mid top raised sole boot in burnt amber and dark brown and a semi oiled leather moccasin in black and oxblood. Canvas and calf leather trainers come in earthy tones and are brightened up with shots of bright colour. A classic suede desert boot completes the offer.
