Just Landed: Gieves & Hawkes' AW18 collection

The first drop of the AW18 collection from Gieves & Hawkes – one of the most prestigious houses on Savile Row – has just landed on The Rake.

There comes a certain amount of pressure when your address is No.1 Savile Row, but pressure is what Gieves & Hawkes thrives upon, as does the storied house's clientele. With roots firmly planted in military tailoring tradition, Gieves & Hawkes has attired military personnel with exquisite uniform for 245 years. You may only do battle in the global financial markets or on the commute to the office, but even that demands coats of sartorial armour and so this season its Creative Director, John Harrison, has reinterpreted Gieves & Hawkes' long-standing naval heritage for the international man. Classic British dress codes and many of the house’s forgotten signatures have been reintroduced with a modern sensibility to create a collection that is both forward-looking and relevant for discerning rakes today.
