As we head into next season, it’s about dressing for the occasion and what makes you comfortable, rather than following trends or studying cloud patterns. And that’s the overarching theme for POLITIX’s autumn collection this year: styled for anywhere.
So what’s looking big for autumn 2020? We’re drawing inspiration from two key trends right now: the natural world and America’s Ivy League (but think suave and sophisticated, not beer pong and frat houses). These aren’t one-size-fits-all outfits. The idea is to play around with different colours and textures, match blazers and chinos with shirts and textured polos, until you find something that feels like you.
01 THE NATURAL WORLD
Earthy, autumnal tones are going to be big this year. This mellow, natural palette can take you almost anywhere. Road tripping with the guys? Maybe a tan bomber, white polo and petrol chinos will do the trick. Need something with a bit more oomph? Check out our new plum velvet tuxedo jacket. It’s got ‘oomph’ written all over it.
02 THE IVY LEAGUE
And on the flipside, we reckon now’s the perfect time to find your inner collegiate...but not your inner beer pong champion. Think smart, sophisticated, gentlemanly style.
For this collection, we’re turning to heritage textures like houndstooth and Prince of Wales, and we’ve even dropped our first slim-fit, pin-stripe suit (for that retro 1980s-Wall-Street sort of vibe). You’re also going to see a lot of bomber jackets, lightweight knitwear and tucked-in polos. Perfect for the golf course.
03 BUILT FOR UTILITY
Our four-pocket utility jacket comes in three colours this season (tan, navy and burgundy) but keep an eye out for our personal favourite: the new black and white houndstooth.
04 BACK IN BLACK
This season we’ve launched four new velvet jackets (tan, purple, midnight and wine), plus a leopard-print tux that’s basically built to raise eyebrows.
05 BLAZING A TRAIL
Heads up, double-breasted blazers are back this year, along with heritage textures like houndstooth and Prince of Wales. For key colours, think neutral: stone and tan will see you through pretty much any social situation.
06 TIME TO SUIT UP
Ah, here it is. The return of the navy slim-cut pin-stripe suit. We can practically hear the ring of chunky, 1980s car phones. For seasonal colour highlights, look to petrol and burgundy. They’re going to big this year.
07 CHINO NEW
Our classic cotton-stretch chinos are back for autumn, with new earthy colours like tan, teal, petrol, wine and khaki. We’ve also introduced a new utility cargo chino style. And did we mention every pair of Winsor’s now come with its own webbed belt?
08 KEEP YOUR SHIRT ON
Paisley and Jacobean florals are still great for peacocking, but we’ve also released textured business shirts in Prince of Wales, micro-Oxford and Bengal stripe. Classy as.
09 DOWN TO A TEE
Our T-shirt collection carries through those autumnal colours: burgundy, tan, navy and white. But we’ve also launched a range of crew-neck tees, which look mint underneath a blazer or bomber (depending on the occasion). There’s a new permanent offer, too: you can now get any two T-shirts for $79 bucks.
