Collection Report | Aquascutum A/W 09

Rarely have I ever seen a brand that rivals Burberry in exuding a simple class that seems like a just birthright. Make that never have I seen one, until my introduction to Aquascutum. Based in London - coincidentally, not - the brand recently unleashed their A/W 09 collection on me in a hard hitting manner. Showcasing the other side of London style, the side that is not punk rock, loud, or busy. Trench coats that without doubt get their base from that of Burberry are showcased providing that silhouette that has come to be synonymous with elegance, style, and a great suit. Suiting is left sleek, lean, and classic with not much difficulty in the design. Outerwear is a focal point with leather making an unexpected appearance throughout alongside town coats and the obvious trench. Keeping a equal balance, styling is situated in that casual pieces are put in with great suiting to result in something that I like to call "genius". And not to be left out, accessories that include holdalls and scarves make a big splash. Men of DC take note, this is how suiting and workwear is done. Continuing in an ode to London, Aquascutum is doing a great job carrying the torch...even though Burberry still very much has a good grasp.
