An extraordinary mens blog for the ordinary man

Werth a look – Peter Werth

Peter Werth, is a name that’s been around on, not only the British Menswear scene but international for over 30 years now. Founded in Islington, North London in 1975, for Spring 2012 the brand returns to it’s Islington roots and has taken this posthumous and stylish postcode of N1 and used it for it’s suiting range.

For S/S12 the N1 range delivers an aesthetic of clean, sharp lines, vibrant colour & eminently wearable styles for a gent wanting to smarten himself up without appearing stuffy and is perfect for going from day to evening, meaning going straight out after work without the need for changing.

This formalwear collection has an indisputable British feel to it with great quality, cut and price. The four button double breasted jacket has been introduced in sharp blues, Prince of Wales check and chambray fabrics. The classic two button single-breasted, notch lapel features in a charcoal sharkskin and mid grey mohair optic providing the perfect balance to the offering.

The Footwear offering from the N1 range compliments the collection with leather and suede brogues on crepe soles and a superbly executed take on the desert boot, which offers something a little different to the norm.

Knitwear is crafted with shawl collars in soft marl yarns and outerwear provides summer essentials with cotton blazers and a double breasted Reefer. Highlight colour is used as sleeve trim and inside collar detail. Polo’s are given a formal feel combining jersey and mercerised cotton pique fabrics with woven cut away button down collars. Taped, concealed and oxford fabric plackets enhance the look. Shirts move seamlessly from softly laundered oxfords, chambrays and checks to sharp cottons featuring the cut away and micro button down collars.

The shoe everyman shouldn't be without a good quality Brogue, well ideal a pair.
