When our founder; Johnny was contacted by Ramzy to be on the guest list of Cambridge Clothing’s Autumn Winter 18 launch there was no way he would decline, especially after learning about the guest list, which include Jonathan & Kylie Brown, Tennis legend Sam Groth, Taylor Henderson, Harrison Craig, Clint Stanaway and Jarred Woodgate.
This launch included a selected guest list of Melbourne’s elite personalities, talent, bloggers and media professionals, not to mention the elite sponsors which included Bombay Sapphire Gin, American Crew and Kings Domain.
The event was not just a “check out our new range” type of event but an intimate setting where guests were able to enjoy elegant good over a stunning long dinner table, with the chance to view individual collections showcased by Cambridge, Joe Black and Gibson.
So let’s get into the nitty-gritty and find out what these 3 brands have for us gents this season.
Joe Black Aw18 – The Refined Rogue
How does Joe do it? On-point every time. This season, Joe shares his rules for dressing impressively and living successfully. Starting with his all-important office attire, Joe’s power broker double-breasted silhouettes and three-piece suits are made for life at the top. Teaming up with Italian mill Marzotto, a full canvas construction is added to the collection along with sharp two-button tailoring in plaid and windowpane checks.
Exceptional Filarte and Zignone pure wool cloths in navy, charcoal, and chocolate create separates with a sense of refinement. Working just as well after hours, lightweight tweeds and herringbone fabrics reinvent the blazer. Improvise every day by matching them back with Egyptian cotton and poplin print shirts, tailored chinos and textured silk ties. When the occasion requires an extra
dose of dashing, waffle weave wool and luxe navy velvet deliver a distinctive take on the tux. Dressed to execute every move with sartorial precision, this is classic Joe at his best.
Gibson AW 18 – Streets Ahead
Escape the ordinary, raise your game and suit up. With nothing to hold you back, AW 18 will have you outplaying the smoothest walkers and fastest talkers. Tailored to move, innovative stretch wool fabrics give even our slimmest silhouettes a feeling of freedom. Minimalist modern hues of charcoal, black and navy are punctuated with shirts in cool pastels, bold florals and retro geo prints. No longer reserved for black-tie, the classic shawl collar gives every day tailoring a streamlined edge. Single button jackets create a new urban profile while sneakers sit perfectly under the hems of our slim tailored trousers. Take the lead at work in irreverent checks or turn your formal into a statement-making affair in our slickest tuxedo yet. Sharply cut and different in fit, you’ll always be ahead of the rest in Gibson.
Cambridge AW 18 – Own Every Day
This season, Cambridge balances elegance with reliability to embody refined practicality. Office-ready suiting in superfine wool is expertly crafted to give your daily routine a shot of self-assurance. Strong rich hues of blue, steel grey and teal are complemented by shirts in finely woven textures, stripes and checks. Cut from easy care fabric, a contemporary fit and structured collar sits smartly under the perfect width of our notched lapels. Entrepreneurs have every opportunity to showcase their talents thanks to our sophisticated collection of paisley and herringbone ties. Add an extra hint of polish with a silk pocket square in a classic microprint. Delivering go-to options for every occasion, two button blazers in windowpane checks and navy pair with tailored chinos in mulberry, sand and khaki. And no man should be without our versatile black suit. With a clean modern silhouette, it works just as
well over a crew neck knit as it does with a white shirt and bow tie.
