Remaining Gems of The Rake's Black Friday Sale

With The Rake’s Black Friday Sale ending tonight, now really is the last opportunity to seize that garment at its most attractive price point.

If the Black Friday Sale bonanza passed you by on the weekend, there is now limited time to act. Finishing tonight, there is still an enviable list of items, rich in sizing options from sartorial powerhouses such as Alexander Kraft Monte Carlo, Kit Blake, Cordone 1956, Barbanera, Edward Sexton, B Corner, and many more to get to get your mitts on. It really is the last opportunity to emerge out of Black Friday with a real coup.

Named after Dean Martin, the unfeasibly charismatic entertainer and giant of style, Barbanera’s navy pure Italian cashmere rollneck sweater is chic-yet-casual. The advantage of a sleek sweater is that it remains flawless underneath a tailored jacket, and if you decide to emanate Sergio’s rock ‘n’ roll side it neatly tucks into a pair of high-waisted suit trousers. Eric Clapton used to don a very similar look, often incorporating a pinstriped vest over a shirt or rollneck jumper.

Cordone 1956 are renowned for the time-honoured craftsmanship applied to every piece that bears the label. Featuring two breast bellows pockets, the light blue cotton flannel overshirt is a highly functional and warming design, one that is tailor-made to wear on the move in winter.

    Masterminded by sartorial supernova Jaime de Marichalar and international model Oriol Elcacho, Madrid-based B Corner are the go-to brand for classic overcoats. Comprising all of the finer traditional details you would expect, notably the razor-sharp wide peak lapels, the grey and blue cashmere houndstoooth single-breasted overcoat is a winter masterpiece.

      One advantage of a winter sale is that it can allow you to prepare and dream of looking the part in high summer. The Edward Sexton-designed brown linen double-breasted suit is a truly knockout piece, destined for either the office or smart summer garden parties.

        Another sleek rollneck sweater, this time from fellow Italians Stile Latino, its versatile shade of brown and lustful texture give you a real advantage when pondering the assemblage of a winter outfit.
