Autumn/Winter 2012 | Menswear | It’s All About Heritage

2012 has been a year of epic proportions for Great Britain. 

The Diamond Jubilee and hosting of the Olympic Games has rejuvenated our views on what it is to be a Brit, and what makes our country so great.

This feeling of national pride has most definitely translated into style trends this year. 

Contrary to the Spring/Summer trend of bright, block red, white and blue coloured shorts, chinos and tees, Autumn/Winter 2012 is all about heritage.

With an emphasis on traditional designs and heavier and more durable textiles, this season’s menswear wardrobe celebrates our British design heritage.

Marks & Spencer have gone all out on this season with their menswear collection. I’ve never been one for M&S, but I am totally in love with their current A/W collection – luxe fabrics, sophisticated cuts, and totally affordable. You need to check it out!

Take a look at some of my top picks for A/W – including Marks & Spencer, Topman, Jaeger and some amazing design partnerships with Harris Tweed.
