When it gets cold we reach for texture: corduroy, cashmere & velvet. These tactile finishes make those freezing days all the more bearable. Savile Row tailor, Richard James, has produced this soft, light grey suit in a thick wale corduroy. The fabric of kings, it looks fresh and contemporary in this light colour and matches the London sky, depressingly!
It's been teamed with a long ombre scarf and cashmere jumper and is the new way to wear winter.

However you want to call it, it looks great in knitwear - as pictured here - and in particular in this grey.
American brand, Vince, is perfect if you're a messy eater, while M&S has the reverse effect, ideal for disguising a bit of belly.
