First up this week is a trio of Chivas shirts from Number Six favourites NN07. We’ve a gingham and large check option along with a light navy denim – all feature a smart button down collars, a hanging loop, left patch chest pocket and a curved hem.We’ve also taken delivery of new Simon chinos from the Swedish brand, available in four great autumnal colours – cognac (khaki), dark grey, deep red and army green. These classic-fit trousers are produced from premium, tightly woven cotton and each features an interesting leather tab above the rear pocket, secured with a single large rivet. Though finished in autumn-appropriate shades, these versatile chinos will happily sway between seasons with the greatest of ease. Next up we’re happy to report on several new arrivals from another exciting Scandinavian brand, Our Legacy. The Great Sweat is appropriately named, having garnered much attention as a standout staple from their current line. The grey melange sweat comes in a regular fit which lends itself well to layering should you need to; it features a crew neck, deep ribbed hem and cuffs – the later aspects adding subtle across to the delightfully simple body of the garment. Following our stock of NN07’s A/W chinos, we also have Our Legacy’s brown corduroy chinos. They provide an appealing departure from denim or plain cotton chinos, adding a unique texture to an outfit, one that we often don’t consider as much as we could. The last arrival from Our Legacy comes in the form of the Versatile Parka, a simple and exceptionally durable outwear option fashioned from robust waxed cotton.
The parka has minimal hardware on show, with only a few pop-buttons strategically placed across the garment allowing the waxed cotton to take centre stage – a superb fabric choice that will no doubt weather with great effect. This piece includes a detachable hood, zip fastening with concealed popper storm flap, slanted popper flap hand warmer pockets, adjustable popper cuffs and inner patch pocket. It also boasts an inner drawstring at the waist should you wish to tighten the fit and create a more defined silhouette.To cap off this weeks update we bring you two new merino wool sweats from our friends at Ralph Lauren. We’ve received the super-soft Geelong crew neck sweater in grey and flame red, both featuring a ribbed hem and cuffs. Like the Great Sweat from Our Legacy, these are certainly items worthy of the ‘staple’ tag – beautifully simple and perfect year-round. Off to New York now for a little working holiday to seek out the best of what they have to offer across the pond. Fingers crossed it will be an abundance of what is not so easily available in many a store on this side of the pond. Rest assured we will bring back the very best......just as you would expect us to. So, until next week, au revoir All at www.numbersixlondon.com
