One of the season’s best examples of tailoring dexterity is Ermenegildo Zegna Couture’s double-pleat Japanese gabardine trousers (£1,060), which are cut so that there’s only one seam on each leg. The style, which comes in pale stone, mid-grey and pistachio, evokes the high-waisted, voluminous trousers worn by David Bowie during his Serious Moonlight Tour in the 1980s. Also notable are the nuances in Zegna’s lapels, created with a closed gorge, as seen on a single-breasted cotton/linen jacket (£2,400) and multicolour blanket-pattern linen-crepe suit (£2,750).
