Morris Heritage Collection
Autumn / Winter 2020
Luxurious fabrics, precise cuts, cool (yet warm) accessories: Morris Heritage has reimagined timeless style for autumn with these five new-season looks. The key? Keep it effortless yet elegant, sharp without trying too hard. And remember you can always mix and match with your favourite pieces – that’s the beauty of this collection.
Mr. Stylish Comfort
This is a look that’s hard to argue with. Embracing the perfect combination of style and comfort, it’s easy to see why it ticks so many sartorial boxes. Taking the spotlight: this lightweight, 100% wool blazer, complete with patch pockets to underline its ease and versatility. Style it with a wool sweater underneath, adding a scarf for both practical and pared-back purposes (notice how a simple accessory immediately lends a casual feel to the outfit). Finally, a pair of Morris 5-pocket jeans in a straight fit to create original denim appeal. Done.
Mr. Casual Luxury
For minimal effort and maximum impact, this is your look. It comes down to three key principles: sharp tailoring, perfect fits and luxurious materials. Enter the reversible, wool cashmere-blend coat: an investment piece that’s twice as useful, and one you’ll be sure to love and keep for years to come. The ultimate choice for elevating any ensemble, wear yours with these pure-wool pinstripe pants (which are made in the prestigious Italian mill Vitale Barberis Canonico), complete with a sleek, beige roller neck knitted from 100% merino wool. On the feet? Maybe classic brogues, maybe sneakers – decide based on your mood and the occasion.
Mr. Elevated Everyday Style
The blazer, chino and shirt combo has become a hero outfit for the modern man –and this Morris Heritage take is no different. The attention is in the detail, as seen with the Keith Tweed Blazer – two buttons, double vents, half-lined and super-light construction make this a wardrobe gamechanger. Add a pair of contemporary chinos in soft Italian cotton (note the slightly higher waist and single front pleats), and a rich indigo-hued shirt, which has been expertly dyed in the Italian mill Albini. The latter is also called a ‘one-piece collar’, meaning the fabric is cut – by a skilled pattern cutter – from one single piece that extends through the front, enabling the collar to stand on its own. Complete the look with a pocket square – or a tie when the occasion calls for it, and rest assured that you’ve mastered a look that’s way above average.
Mr. Lightweight Blazer
Men’s blazers have come a long way in the last decade. Originally like woollen armour: heavy, warm and stiff, they’ve since transformed into light, airy and easy-to-wear wardrobe essentials. Case in point: this navy jacket from Italian mill, Vitale Barberis Canonico, which is carefully detailed with double vents and patch pockets. Thanks to its lightweight construction you can easily layer it with chunkier knits, like the cable knit roller neck, which is having a strong comeback this season. Wear it with pants in white and lighter shades, colors that look even better in autumn.
Mr. Layer Up
Layered outfits are nothing new – and it’s easy to see why. Not only does it look good, but it’s a practical means of getting dressed: just think of Italian men who casually throw a vest over a blazer as they jump on their Vespas to get about town. Hence, if you’re ever in doubt – take your lead from the Italians, just as we have in developing this quilted vest. The front is crafted from protective nylon, while the rest is made from Merino wool. Wear it over your blazer or under this coat (note the peak lapels), and complete with a pair of well-cut pants. Our choice? This timeless, double front-pleated style, complete with glen checks, a slightly higher waist and cuffed hems. We think the Italians would approve.
