6 of the Best: Checks
From patchwork shirts to shearling coats, we’ve got everything you need for your AW16 checklist - pun intended!
Words by Sally Bottomley
Saint Laurent Coat
Saint Laurent’s offbeat take on the classic shearling coat is the perfect way to pull off the lumberjack look in the city - a must for any aspiring urban outdoorsman.
Burberry Runway Sweater
This season Burberry is doing what it does best…checks. This monochrome mohair sweater by the iconic British label stands out as much on the runway as it will on the street.
Carry off checks with a little helping hand from DSquared2 this season, namely their multifunctional backpack that mixes practicality with panache. It features a sturdy leather handle and secure yet stylish metal clip fastening.
Young Italian label Sunnei carved its sartorial niche by embracing traditional handmade methods and modern design details. The subtle pleats on these cotton trousers make things a little more interesting for the laid-back dresser.
Comme Des Garçons Shirt
Why choose just one type of check when you can have four? Maximalists will love this standout by Comme Des Garçons, in a light cotton fabric more versatile than most heavy, flannel counterparts.
Fend of the chill factor in style with Etro’s tartan padded jacket - its ultra light, feather-down lining is the ultimate insular layer and makes it easily one of the wisest wardrobe investments this winter.
