If any show at London Collections: Men encapsulated the essence of the British gentleman, it was E.Tautz's AW13 collection. In a colour palette of grey, black and orange, simple pieces of classic tailoring walked the runway. Suits, double-breasted coats and jumpers were all present and along with the appearance of cloche hats the entirety gave the essence of both quality and style. Patrick Grant is the creative force behind E.Tautz and along with having the whole collection produced in the UK, is constantly introducing influences from the military into the brand's Saville Row persona. In 2010, E. Tautz was awarded British menswear designer of the year at the British Fashion Awards and has since continued to make its mark on the world of menswear design.
Congratulations to E.Tautz and Patrick Grant for the consistently high level of praise received for said collection in the press.
