As constant as the wind and rain, the heritage trend just keeps coming back around for Autumn Winter. For the first time, the traditionally wool and tweed based look was embraced for the summer season too, which meant an awful lot of cut off chinos and quilted jackets knocking about on the highstreet.
Thankfully, heritage has enjoyed a bit of an update for AW12 and any men who were scared off those ubiquitous quilted offerings in racing green and royal navy for summer will be pleased to see that designers, Nicholas Deakins have come up with something a lot more wearable.
The company’s latest footwear design, the Laverick Harris boot, is a collaboration with Harris Tweed. They come in tan, caramel or brown textured leather and feature a cool panel of the famous Scottish tweed. There are stockists nationwide and online.
Of course, if you’re totally on board with the trend then embracing tweed all over is pretty brave, and therefore, cool. Oliver Spencer has a good range of tweed blazers, waistcoats and the like at the moment.
On with the Harris Tweed revival – king of highstreet trend interpretations, Topman now stocks backpacks from the heritage fabric company. This one is £70 and should last for several winters if you’re careful.
