Lots of convincing on-trend pieces, each with enough of a twist to engage the most critical eyes. A tight tailoring offer ticks the fashion boxes with blue and grey peaked lapel 1sb styles and a black taped shawl collar 1sb in super slim fits, merchandised with gingham shirts. The checked shirts come in mini- and oversized versions with plenty of colours but none is too garish; sporty nylons and track tops also come in dark tonal mixes and slightly more challenging elements include a db grey marl sweat hoody.
With a clean contemporary feel the men’s department eschews the bubblegum glitz of the women’s side but provides a glossy backdrop with a good mix of tables and rails. Feature-walls in grey and brown (not as dour as it sounds) are teamed with spot lighting and the de rigueur cream floor.
Massively tilted toward casual styles with tailoring taking up just one rail. But on those casual rails there is a large breadth of stories from knits and shirts through tops, jeans and outerwear. Two carousels of Sales items only underscore the value offer without cheapening it.
Genuinely tempting. OK, the fabrications are not always top-dollar but this clobber is well made and will stand plenty of washes. A slim-fit shawl collar 1sb is £55, the trousers are £25, narrow ties are £6; button down slim shirts are £18; jeans are from £15, cardigans are £15, nylon windcheaters are £20. In all, hard to beat, and an on-trend youthful wardrobe can be fully refreshed for £100.
