Thom Sweeney AW16 at London Collections Men

Thom Whiddett and Luke Sweeney began as Savile Row apprentices before founding Thom Sweeney in 2007.  Their dynamic partnership was fashioned from a shared devotion, intuitive understanding and quest to give British tailoring a global relevance.


Fine tailoring delivered with a blend of British panache and Italian fluidity is at the heart of the Thom Sweeney ethos. A slick fusion of construction expertise, individuality and a contemporary feel, assuring a sense of maturity and a look that contradicts the formality of Savile Row.


With a focus on exquisite fabric, Thom Sweeney introduces Winter Seersucker; a unique wool blend heavier in weight than its summer offering but sharing the same exclusive properties with a softer shoulder. Flannel is reimagined in grey chalk stripe and Prince of Wales check, alongside new needle corduroy green cashmere and a British Holland & Sherry tweed suit with pleated trouser.


Deconstructed double-breasted jackets in wool cashmere are worn with utility vests in tweed, whilst heavy cotton in a robust twill delivers Thom Sweeney’s first tailored denim trouser.


Classic shirting silhouettes are modernised with softer collar shapes or grandad collars in light weight denim, flannel and brushed cotton. Chunky cable knits and lightweight merino wools offer layering options to tailoring.


Central to outerwear is the tailored Pea Coat. Made in England using a Loro Piana wool cashmere blend, its fitted silhouette accentuates a refined, slim finish. A cashmere double-breasted overcoat and down-filled gilet also feature.


Strong earthy tones have been muted to ease wearability including camel, brown and green with a hint of navy and grey.


To complete the collection, Thom Sweeney’s eveningwear celebrates the tuxedo with a navy peak lapel and two-tone slim fit in wool.
