Another 3 weeks of mens fashion shows, fairs, events, are approaching. To salute and celebrate the fresh and new that will be presented during these days, we have chosen a British line that is appealing and very strong in its valour. Eastie Empire is a British sports heritage label combining all the famous, and renowned all over the world, traditions of tailoring. Vintage style fabrics pair together with old manufacturing techniques revived by the brand in order to deliver to their clients authenticity and style with substance. The inspiration comes from vintage sportsmen, adventurers and gentlemen. The process starts in flea markets, museums, art galleries where the team grabs inspiration and re creates “old” for the contemporary man. Every single piece is imagined for the type of man who would have worn it and his imaginary name is stitched as an embroidered name tag into each garment. The AW 12 collection is made of luxury jersey and knitwear, each with a unique heritage feeling but perfect for the modern men’s wardrobe.
“However, our vision is not to dress men like Victorian gentlemen. We temper this with modern day styling, functionality and comfort. Bringing the two worlds together.”
“We believe, like good old fashioned sportsmen that ‘Manners Make the Man”
