Three Slices of Toast
Toast launched a menswear range this year. If you're familiar with the brand's aesthetic, you will not be surprised that it continues with the soft, casual tailoring, and natural colours and materials found in the womenswear.
Here are three slices of toast to satisfy Tweedy's appetite.
The Matelot Jersey wool fishing sweaters are made by French sweater specialists St James, with the traditional three buttons at the shoulder. A wardrobe staple, gentlemen.
I'm pleased to see that a proper pair of pyjamas are also in the range (above). Regular readers may recall an unreasonable rant about the proliferation of loungewear killing off the pyjama. Pyjamas are back. Great to see that proper top button to fasten the Cerrone Pyjama right up to the neck, as well as drawstring trousers. In 6oz cotton, with decadent blue and green stripes.
The Flannel Blazer is woven in Yorkshire in a 10oz wool/cotton twill flannel. An unstructured, Edwardian-style jacket. Good for summer travelling on the Sawai Madhopur to Delhi train reading E. M. Forster novels. Actually, it's similar to a jacket I wore from Old Town for just such a trip, of whom more later.
