Ede & Ravenscroft’s tailoring with heritage frisson

A city gent-inspired autumn collection from London’s oldest tailor

Established in 1689, Ede & Ravenscroftis London’s oldest tailor (it also makes robes for barristers and members of the House of Lords) and its autumn collection is inspired by a gentleman in the city. The suiting, knitwear, outerwear and accessories retain the brand’s history, while incorporating modern silhouettes, luxe fabrics and honed detailing, such as leather collar straps on the macs. The cashmere Glen‑check Chancery coat (£2,800, pictured) with an epaulette shoulder seam has a certain heritage frisson, while the cotton Cadogan raincoat (£750) – a crisp, clean mac with a storm flap and detachable nappa collar – is excellent.
