John Lewis Kin Stretch Flannel Suit Trousers
New season wardrobes are less about wardrobe 180s, and more about making subtle switches; like fabrics.

Win-win.

Kappa X K-Way Le Vrai Leon Jacket
Two brands walked into a bar, realised they both started with K and liked the nineties – the rest, as they say, is history. At least that’s how we like to think this tie-up between sportswear brand Kappa and French outerwear firm K-Way came about. Either way, it’s seriously swish stuff.
