This season we’re exalting the men and women in uniform. And we’ve got news for you - you’re one of them. Those shape-shifters experimenting with proportion, the gender-benders plundering their lover’s wardrobe; it’s time for you to stand up and be counted. From outsize coats to trailing shirts, boxy jackets to ballooning pants, this is the shape of things to come.

The Long Shirt TailsThis most basic of garments takes on a new lease of life when worn oversized and long with the shirt tails trailing.
The Wide-Cut TrousersPack away those skinnies; the new silhouette demands trousers to be cut generously wide and worn with flats.
The Casual VestThought three piece suits were only for weddings? Think again - a casually tailored waistcoat is your new daily layering piece, guaranteed to add substance to your style.
The Outsize CoatThis season’s coats come bigger, bolder and braver than ever. Boys and girls can take refuge in vast swaddling layers or play swapsies for added fashion value.
