Crombie Spring/Summer 2013 Collection

The SS13 collection reflects the style of the burgeoning International Jet Set of the late 50's and early 60's, when the emerging luxury class took off for the resorts of Lake Como, Nice and Monaco for a long hot summer wearing a new continental take on British menswear. Striped blazers, double-breasted Linen and cotton jackets, bright and light trousers, basketweave knits and printed Pima cotton shirts are teamed with featherweight silk scarves.

Influenced by a truly unique heritage as a fabric merchant and of course by the world famous 'Crombie Cloth', inspiration was initially found in an 1865 swatch book in the Crombie archive. Checked cuttings of cloth provided the deep colour palette of red, white and blue, with touches of sky and green, and double faced fabric pieces inspired the development of a new summer 'Crombie Coat'. A slim fitting waterproof Mac available in navy blue with a vibrant red interior, also comes in Airforce Blue with a cognac contrast and is a piece destined to become a new summer classic.
