Can’t Resist: Urban Gentry


You might have noticed a bit of a trend emerging, it’s a unique crossover from country style into the city. Yes, it’s fairly likely you will have spotted what appears to be a farmer on the train to work, but if you asked him, he’s probably never been near a farm in his life.

Everyone’s gone country crazy. That means wax jackets, hunting inspired garb and tonal hues. We haven’t quite got to the cape, deerstalker and Wellington boots yet, but somewhere out there is a guy working that 19th Century gentry look.

We propose a more toned down approach to the Urban Gentry trend. We’re thinking khaki shades, hints of check, cable knits and quirky accessories.

Your style icons are Daniel Craig, David Beckham and Jude Law. They work the country gent look to perfection. It’s all about a relaxed approach, and layering up. This look should be comfortable but will appear on trend with the right pieces. A Barbour inspired jacket is a must for the weekend, and for the week try pairing a flat cap with your ensemble for true Urban Gentry.
