Lyle & Scott have just released their Autumn/Winter 12 Heritage collection inspired by a trip along the great British coastline, using inspiration from the traditional Naval and Maritime dress code to create a sophisticated and stylish winter wardrobe.
The key piece of the collection that embodies the design ethos perfectly is a Melton wool pea coat. A time-honoured classic, this coat offers sleek structure, function and luxury whilst a navy quilted jacket with contrast pockets and a woven blazer provide equally appealing outerwear options.
The knitwear offering is at the core of the collection with a shawl collar Submariner sweater in 100% heavy gauge merino wool with anchor engraved bone button detailing. Another knitwear highlight includes a crew neck pullover made in Scotland from 100% lambswool, providing a simple but timeless winter indulgence. As ever, the v-neck jumper makes a welcome appearance in an extensive colour palette, the fine merino wool supplying a comfortable seasonal defence.
Moving on to shirting, a classic gingham check comes with Mother of Pearl buttons whilst a bold button down check shirt complements the Naval theme. A striped polo brings us back to sea whilst grey marl or navy stripes offer a sportier take. Cord trousers complete the Heritage look, capturing the nautical dress code of the season in navy or burgundy.
