LONDON — British retailer John Lewis is taking its men’s offering upscale for fall, with a new tailored clothing line under its John Lewis & Co. label that spotlights English and Italian fabrics and contemporary silhouettes. The new designs, which will land in 10 John Lewis stores this month, include slim-fitting suits in fabrics such as brown Donegal tweed, black-and-white houndstooth wool and deep blue Italian flannels.
Nick Keyte, head of buying for men’s wear at John Lewis, said the new suits were designed to “put formalwear on the map for John Lewis.” He added that the range, which uses fabric from British mills such as Abraham Moon and Alfred Brown, was born out of the John Lewis archive, with the retailer celebrating its 150-year anniversary this year.
