In Spirit of Union the label has produced a collection inspired by utility and  function, but one that’s kept up to date with a modern colour palette, fabrication and attention to detail. Print once again finds itself at the heart of the collection and revolves around the hand-cut lion prints of the characters portrayed within these early pitmen paintings. Shirts have a strong graphic element to them and feature contrasting textures and colour.

An all-over print chino sits alongside subtle jacquards on both knitwear and outerwear, where heavy Melton jackets feature waxed twills, leather detailing and shearling collars. There’s also corduroy, wools and quilted down, as well as technical features such as laminated layers and taped seams. The knits utilise boiled wools, with engineered techniques used consistently across cardigans, roll and crew neck styles.

The palette features industrial hues of blue, navy and charcoal grey, peppered with sage green, burnt orange and powder yellow.  You’ll also find teal and petrol blues plus burgundy and forest greens, the perfect accompaniment to Winter.

    Oh yes, this I really like! I can’t believe how much they have moved on over the last few years. They look like a proper brand again and not just for knuckle draggers. Love it!
