Deconstructed Tailoring: LCM
Our final instalment of the London Collections: Men trend reports centres around a particularly wearable streetwear look. We saw London's sartorially-minded wear their high fashion suits with alternative bottom weights - think immaculately tailored suit blazers with drop-crotch bottoms - by all accounts the must-have look this season.

To create this look, it's important to start at the top. Think beautifully crafted outerwear, such as an oversized pea coat in a classic shade of red, navy, or black, or a double-breasted duffle coat, then clash them against urbanised slashed-knee skinny jeans or dropped crotch joggers. Finish the look off with a wide-brimmed hat or rounded sunglasses. This look is all about modern twists on classic detailing – perfect for 20-somethings trying to strike a balance between formal pieces and edgy casual wear. Great for everyday wear and easily dressed up for special occasions. For footwear, stick with brogues or pointed toes to maintain the elegance that runs subtly throughout.
To get a feel for this trend without having to invest in designer labels, we have pulled together our top three pieces that will complement Deconstructed Tailoring trend, with our own collection: Beat Dat. Team with longline coats, tailored shirts and bold accessories.
