It isn't an easy feat for a man to achieve a signature personal look – a uniform if you will – that while being subtle, manly and appropriate allows you to stand out from the crowd. And this is exactly why guys like Nick Wooster gather what is almost like a cult following. His distinctive combinations of suit shorts with perfectly tailored jackets and polished shoes together with his graphic tattoos and grey moustache make him impossible to overlook.
For the SS15 season, the iconic Wooster has partnered with Italian brand Lardini to create a capsule collection of pieces that play with the traditional and the very much contemporary. Classic menswear colours like grey, khaki, olive and navy cover lined and unlined jackets and trousers in anything from a slim and straight fit to a dropped crotch and a ghurka.
The collection is a masterful game of fabrics and detailing bringing together Wooster's clinical eye and Lardini's tailoring knowhow to deliver raw and understated pieces I, for one, could not have even dreamed of.
