A/W 2018 Collection
Introducing The Workers Club AW18, the next chapter in the story of a brand who believe in longevity beyond transient trends. In pursuit of creating the ultimate men’s wardrobe, every box is ticked; performance, practicality and precision. As with every season, this considered collection of staples expands on existing brand signatures, including the Shell Jacket and Packable Parka in Abstract Camo, imagined for AW18 in a new colourway.
Since their launch in 2015, TWC have been inspired by the men who wear their clothes. Three years on and as the relationship between muse and brand has strengthened, this collection feels decidedly more confident and evolved. Traditional menswear classics are given the signature TWC treatment; think corduroy trousers tapered at the ankle and rib knit beanies in bright, vivid colours. As ever, the best loved classics remain, including the ultimate cotton tee, brushed back cotton jersey sweats and the famous knit socks. The vintage inspired Naval Button Up Sweater, a sumptuous everyday knit, is destined to become a future classic. Defined by its exceptional quality and flattering fit, this jumper is crafted in Italy from fine merino wool for a super soft yet durable feel.
AW18 captures the two landscapes in which TWC exists; the city versus the countryside. Denim and outerwear are imbued with a definite urban aesthetic while the colours and textures offer up a decidedly more rustic feel; think rust sweats, khaki knits and chunky knitted socks. This seasons look book has been created in collaboration with world renowned stylist William Gilchrist and acclaimed photographer Dan Annett.
More pertinent than ever in the current climate, AW18 marks a stronger relationship with skilled British manufacturers, and uses home-grown fabrics and trims. The Abstract Camo Packable Parka is woven in Scotland before being printed in England, while the cords are also crafted here in the UK. Finally, this season sees the launch of TWC’s inaugural accessories range, beginning with a rucksack and briefcase.
