Knit picks: Anderson & Sheppard AW20

Inspired by heritage design (their own and the wider menswear landscape’s), the British tailoring house delivers a weatherproof capsule that celebrates synchronicity

This year’s collection is ready to wear at its most literal, with clothes that are designed to be worn in rotation. At the practical end of the spectrum, a water-resistant jacket takes design cues from the raglan and balmacaan coat, but with the house’s signature high armhole and cut in weatherproof microfibre fabric – better yet, it folds into itself and zips into an easily portable pouch. Less practical, but all the more interesting for it, is this season’s unlined suede jacket inspired by last year’s super successful safari-style travel jacket, with a little nip and tuck. The lower pockets have been omitted, the torso streamlined and the lining removed to expose the immaculate craftsmanship we’ve come to expect from Anderson & Sheppard’s ready-to-wear.
