Sunspel on a rainy day!

Nothing exciting came through the door today, so I checked the post rack where my wife sometimes 'files' post (pre-recycling) and low and behold I found this little beauty - The Sunspel Autumn/Winter Collection 2016 (and yes, it was actually raining at the time!).

A suspicious man would think this had been hidden from view to discourage unnecessary spending on new clobber, but I'm putting this one down to a clerical error, as this is clearly a gem on a design level (and on a new clobber tip too).

The leaflet/catalogue is a handy A5 size (like the loaf mailing I posted yesterday, it makes sense from a postal cost etc and it looks good) and is again printed on a decent uncoated stock (which as far as paper fashions go, it doesn't seem to be losing popularity any time soon), which the mixture of black & white and coloured photography sit really well on.

Inside we are treated to a lesson in minimalism. This is quite simply, beautifully put together. From well arranged cut out montages to classic black & white photography, as well as the odd illustration, this is a joy to flick through from start to finish and really does help sell the brands heritage and quality.

Probably took all morning to set up but looks brilliantly simple and understated. Sunspel A/W 2016 Collection. A5 mailer (courtesy of Sunspel)

Expensive keks (that's northern for underpants) and a lovely nod to their heritage with an old advert from the late 1940's. Sunspel A/W 2016 Collection. A5 mailer (courtesy of Sunspel)

So chaps (and chapess's - they do ladieswear too you know), if you want to look sharp this winter, get on to Sunspel's website and get some quality gear. I've seen it in Aspecto too (online and in store). It's not the cheapest, but it's very nice stuff.
