For Spring/Summer 2018, we offer more options and combinations of wearing our shirts. We continue to expand the concept of the shirt, keeping key characteristics but pushing the functional aspect further by focusing on layering. We took inspiration from the scouts of the world and the journey of coming of age. Classic tailoring fabrics in houndstooth and Prince of Wales checks are used in a more contemporary way and play with the idea of exploring adulthood as an adolescence. Summer wools are made into unconstructed Shirtcoats, Overshirts and our new Zipshirts to create a youthful feel with a relaxed drape, perfect for layering.
We also researched the iconic scout uniform, where the shirt takes the center stage as a unifier but also acts as a canvas for self-expressions and achievements. Textured cottons and linens in desert browns and washed-out khakis are applied with regimental tape trims on places like pockets, side seams and sleeves. Another new introduction is a notched collar shirt. It has generous sleeve plackets and double chest pockets, offered in both heavy and light weight fabrics, worn on its own or as an overshirt. Fresh poplins and pinpoints have been washed down for the perfect hand feel in summer whites, soft blues, faded stripes and a pop of beet red. The print this season is a drawn collage of vintage scout patches printed on a crisp poplin in our classic button-down shirt. Denim shirts have been heavily washed for the perfect patina finish, offered in our Leisure shirt, Overshirt as well as our T-shirt. Each detail, fabrication and treatment intend to elevate the shirt to be the best it can be.
