Chester Barrie Spring/Summer 2017

Chester Barrie’s Spring Summer 2017 collection is designed to make sure men look great when it matters most.

Whether it’s a wedding, a garden party or even Royal Ascot, there is something to ensure that guys will look their best.

Highlights include tailoring in lightweight summer cloths including wool, silk, and linen blends which feature in a sophisticated colour palette of ecru, mid blues and warm greys.

Comfort and discreet elegance is key with half lined jackets, which are as easy to style with a fine knit as they are with a shirt and tie.

With the fashion for formal dress codes at weddings, Chester Barrie gives options for formal dress, black tie and great lightweight tailoring. A bright blue dinner suit with an ottoman facing lapel is the epicentre of this story. It’s lighter than the average suit but still screams glamour. Silk jacquard cocktail jackets and a cream dinner suit complete the black tie offer; while three piece suits in light grey or classic navy have a certain ubiquity.

A hero piece of the collection is an unashamedly British double breasted blazer. Made in lightweight flannel, the six button French Navy knockout is old school dressing for the younger generation.

Also important are suits that can be broken down into separates giving more choice. Chester Barrie make this look simple with their new range of suit separates, designed to be mixed and matched for versatility and maximum impact.

About Chester Barrie - Tailors of the Unexpected:

Chester Barrie is the ultimate Modern Tailor, taking established forms and developing them; creating the unexpected. The tailor’s art is to take a piece of cloth and create a three-dimensional form, to bring it to life so that it sculpts and flatters the wearer. Chester Barrie’s aim is to do this, not just with the standard suit and jacket but also with a broader product range. It mixes the craftsmanship and knowledge gained over the past 80 years with a contemporary eye. Innovation has always been its way. Established in the 1930s Chester Barrie was one of the first to offer ready-to-wear tailoring, providing the same attention to detail and commitment to quality as the old bespoke houses on Savile Row but making great tailoring more accessible. At the time it was revolutionary. This belief in the best continues to this day – though much else has moved on. The way men dress has changed dramatically and so too has Chester Barrie. Lighter fabrics, innovative blends and a far softer structure have ushered in a more relaxed form of dressing, which Chester Barrie has embraced and developed. The aim is to be the modern tailor to the modern man.
