Borrowed from the Boys!


Why borrow from the boys, you say? Well, why not? After all, anything they can do we can do better ;)

This year’s cricket jumper was made with the boys in mind, sitting firmly within our SS16 menswear collection. Nevertheless, our simple navy cable knit jumper with piping to the neckline and cuff, can easily be worn a unisex layer, appealing to both sexes in its versatile appearance; a key feature in androgynous styling.

Oversized jackets, coats and knits with delicate touches is the key to clever androgynous styling. As seen above by Dhruv Kapoor, a ruffle collared shirt is layered under a large blazer with slouchy tailoring, combining both feminine and masculine elements.


Championed most notably by the late, great David Bowie, gender-bending in fashion is no new fad. Prolific in the eighties as a means of impactful artistry and style, men often borrowed from the girls! Adam Ant, Pete Burns, Boy George; all displayed a distinct femininity in their flamboyancy.

To complete your boyish look, finish with our stylish panama trilby in classic ecru with a navy ribbon and trimming; just what to need to secure a dapper-looking spring outfit.

Go on, borrow from the boys. Shop our cashmere cricket jumper today…you know you want to!
