Marks & Spencer’s Best Of British


Marks & Spencer’s latest Best Of British range embraces statement-making swagger

Bold, non-apologetic, check suits have found their way into favour this spring. Brave at heart and victorious in endeavour, Marks & Spencer has some of the finest.

Whether a long-line double-breasted Prince Of Wales check with peak lapels and slim-fitting cuffed trousers that channel the suavity of Cary Grant, or a single-breasted windowpane with wide-notch-lapels that mirrors the swagger of Seventies style icon Robert Redford, M&S’s latest Best Of British premium range – using fabrics from within the UK – has the trend covered.

The brainchild of head of menswear design, Tony O’Connor, Best Of British, now in its second season, pushes out a little bit further than its debut. O’Connor says, “Emphasis on checks, from oversized windowpane to the Prince Of Wales check, signifies the growing confidence of statement British style.” Matching umbrellas are optional.
