Are you one of those chaps that gets in from work, throws off his suit and dons a pair of old sweats? Ever been caught opening the door in a threadbare robe and ropey old pair of pants? Well if you are, then the latest capsule range from Scotch & Soda is exactly what you need.
Cleverly labelled “Home Alone”, the collection comprises of a premium basic line of essential pieces. Designed to be an accompaniment to the labels Amsterdam Blauw range, these essentials include sweat pants, long sleeved T-shirts and accessories like knitted scarves. Moving on from last season, the autumn/ winter 2015 Home Alone collection refreshes classic menswear pieces in unique and interesting new ways.
So how does a brand reinvent classic menswear? The Scotch & Soda approach is by upping the luxury factor. The best quality materials from around the world have been gathered to develop the chunky knits (perfect for the autumn), knitted accessories and more. Classic Breton stripes are also a highlight of the collection and a strong symbol of the nautical theme that has inspired the whole range.
This nautical theme (think sailing, the sea and lots of blue, cream and white) also appears in more subtle ways. Nautical inspired details appear throughout the collection with oversized eyelets and rope closures on knitwear.
These pieces look great when worn under, and with, some of the great outerwear in the range – navy peacoats that are a perfect fit. Throw on with a granddad striped sweat pant, matching crew neck or layered T-shirts and you are good to go. Explore the full collection at Scotch & Soda.
