Taking a cue from Edwardian elegance, Ede & Ravenscroft head designer Michael McGrath created a tailored collection that played out over four stories: Uniform, City Gent, Out of Town and Formal Dress.

Texture was used to great effect in a casual jacket of moss-toned velvet atop a tweed waistcoat, Tattersall shirt and knitted tie; a Donegal herringbone tweed coat thrown over a chunky cashmere knit; and a Suffolk jacket reimagined in melton wool had a collar lined in the label’s signature regal red.

On the formal side, a midnight blue smoking jacket boasted a quilted satin lapel with matching waistcoat and a fob watch print popped up on smoking slippers paired with a velvet three-piece suit in eggplant. McGrath called the latter a contemporary twist on those period elements.
