Cable Knit and Bow Tie
For my last day in London I decided to wear the Gant Lambswool cable knit sweater I had bought earlier that week, and I have to say it did not disappoint. With a great fit, a lovely autumnal brown, and a wonderful fabric, this is easily my favourite sweater. I chose to wear it with my Ralph Lauren bow tie and my oxford shirt, Luxire denim, and red Falke socks. The red socks not only provided a nice contrast with the jeans, but picked up on the red in the bow tie, and their ribbing added even more texture to the outfit. Indeed, to me, this is an outfit which, although it would look nice if the sweater were made from a simple cotton and paired with navy cotton chinos, the various textures make it into a much more visually interesting outfit, as it gives it depth. The oxford weave of the shirt, the silk of the bow tie, the cable knitting of the sweater, the denim, the ribbing of the socks and the worn leather all work together very well to form what is without a doubt my favourite autumnal outfit to date.

If I have time tomorrow I might write a short article on my autumn/winter ties, featuring my Luxire MTM shirt, which has not yet been featured in a post.
