Introducing the 'TWC Workers Brew' - A caffeine fuelled collab
It was a while ago now that we discovered TwoH and their amazing coffee roasting company. As we’re insane coffee lovers here at TWC we had to get in touch with these guys and arrange to meet.  Continue reading

TWC Worn Your Way 'Part Six'

TWC Worn Your Way 'Part Six'

In our final instalment for our AW18 collection 'Worn Your Way' we invite George Glasgow Jnr to select an item from our AW18 collection. 

We were lucky enough to work with JKF MAN once more when he visited George in the West End. What could be better than hanging out around Mayfair chatting with and photographing this gent! 

Some men just exude class and style; George Glasgow Jnr, CEO and Creative Director of George Cleverley Shoes is one such man.  A born-and-bred Londoner, George splits his time between Cleverley’s Mayfair shop and Los Angeles. It felt only right we captured him outside his Royal Arcade boutique wearing our Navy Shell Jacket and carrying the TWC Briefcase Bag. It’s an often overused term, but Cleverley’s handmade shoes really are the epitome of luxury. What better to pair them with then, than a pair of our Yellow & Grey mix socks? A match made in bespoke-shoe-heaven we think…

 

When it comes to menswear, how important is it to you? 

It is very important.  Life is about stories and the origins of how things came about.  For me, I love to know how a style first got its design and its history.  Craftsmanship is is unique and a work of art so should be appreciated.  

What drew you to select the Navy Shell from TWC’s AW18 collection?

It was an item that my wardrobe was lacking.  Something which was casual yet stylish.  Given that I’m spending more time now in London it was perfect for what I needed this winter!

What’s on your Christmas list this year?

I have some cashmere items.  I also want a new laptop case which I’m having my workshop make me now which is going to look stunning.  Olive green alligator on one side and calf on the other.  Will be totally unique!

What’s your ultimate favourite item of clothing that you own? 

 I would say 1786 Russian Hide bespoke Cleverley’s are the most unique!  I also love my cashmere jacket with the lining of my wife inside from Len Logsdail in New York.  Both beautiful pieces and totally unique! 

A huge thank you to George and Jamie!

From all at TWC

TWC Worn You Way 'Part Five'

TWC Worn You Way 'Part Five'

Next in our series of 'Worn Your Way' We call upon our new favourite model Jonathan James Turner to select an item of his choice from our AW18 Collection. 

Eagled-eyed TWC devotees might just recognise Jonathan from our AW18 campaign. As a tailor, stylist and model, Jonathan knows menswear and has an old-school, timeless look that sits perfectly with our brand vision. A native Londoner with a glint in his eye that has something of the Cary Grant about it, he has that enviable ability to truely ‘own’ his style and bring clothes to life.

Jonathan wears our 'Made in Italy' Merino Wool Naval Sweater in Navy.

 

 

 

In the words of Oscar Wilde, can you ever be overdressed? 

I’m going to have to disagree with Mr. Wilde. I certainly do believe you can be overdressed. I’m more a dress for the occasion kind of guy!

 

What drew you to select the Naval Sweater from TWC’s AW18 collection?

I really liked the blue of it and the chunky collar and thick waistband.

 

What’s on your Christmas list this year? 

Honestly, I don’t have anything on my list this year but I suppose a nice pair of high waisted selvedge denim jeans would be a lovely gift ;)

 

What’s your ultimate favourite item of clothing that you own? 

My favourite item of clothing would have to be my vintage GH Bass Weejuns that were handed down to me by my dad. He bought them 23 years ago when GH Bass was still being produced in the states and they still look great. The leather on them is still fantastic all these years later, they have kept their shape and they still have that cool Ivy look to them.

Thank you so much James, 

See you soon for our AW19 campaign!

Next up we invite Ryan Thomas to select an item from the AW18 collection. 

Ryan wears The Workers Club Printed Parka.

 

 

To put it simply, Ryan just gets us. As Digital Editor at The Rake, Ryan is all about quality, provenance and timeless design; we certainly have a few things in common. After first visiting us at our barn two years ago, we’ve since built up a great relationship and are thrilled to have recently launched on The Rake. 

 

What attributes make a great brand stand out to you? 

For me there are a number of factors that make a brand stand out and get noticed. Quality of construction and provenance of fabrics is a big one as it shows me that the creatives behind the brand have taken serious steps to craft the best product they can and haven't cut corners. That ties in with the brand's story and ethos. Its DNA has to make sense to me. Brands with a definable aim or vision are the ones which resonate the most with me. Then there's originality. Brands that can consistently evolve while still being true to their aesthetic are really interesting to me. 
What drew you to select the blue camo parka from TWC’s AW18 collection?
The parka is a classic military silhouette but Adam and Charlotte have tweaked the silhouette, the fabric choice, the fasteners in such a way as to reinvent it in a really modern way. The result is a piece of outerwear that feels fresh, contemporary and extremely versatile. I've worn it casually with denim but also over a softly tailored navy wool suit and sneakers. The camo print has been rendered in such a way as to evolve it from its military heritage. The silhouette is also cut to be slightly oversized but the cotton is still really lightweight, making it an ideal layering piece. It bridges that divide between streetwear-inspired outerwear and smart-casual coat. 

 

What’s on your Christmas list this year? 

I've definitely got my eye on some TWC selvedge jeans! They're such a good investment and I know just how much time Adam and Charlotte have put into unearthing the very best Japanese denim. Cotton quality makes a huge difference to the longevity of denim and how well they age. I'm also gunning for the waterproof Leica X-U - I'm planning on embarking on some escapades next year and the X-U is a seriously rugged camera to journal them with.

What’s your ultimate favourite item of clothing that you own?

That's a tough one! I've got a Brunello Cuccinelli wool, cashmere and alpaca jacket that just feels so good on. I've had it for about 5 years and every year it gets a little more slubby and worn to that point that it feels like a second skin. It proves my point about construction quality and provenance of fabrics - some brands you pay a premium for hype, others the premium is for tangible quality. Earlier this year I picked up a tobacco brown linen suit by Drake's, who offer amazing value. I wouldn't really call myself a suit guy but I found myself reaching for this particular suit time and again this summer. I've always been a little apprehensive about linen but the way this suit has worn in is amazing.

 

 

Cheers Ryan!
