Working in a sun-faded color palette, Ede & Ravenscroft’s head of design Michael McGrath crafted relaxed tailoring in lightweight linens and cotton that nodded to the post-War era. One single-breasted suit was done in beige linen and worn with a pale green shirt with a contrasting white collar, while a blue and white herringbone jacket in cotton linen was paired with McGrath’s toned-down take on Oxford bags. He also made subtle references to the tailor’s 325-year legacy of fashioning ceremonial robes, including those for Britain’s royal family. That heritage came through in details such as buttoned, turned-up cuffs on an unstructured suede jacket, inspired by royal livery uniforms, the dress worn by servants in the royal household.
