Crombie launches its Autumn/Winter 2010 collection

Crombie has launched its Autumn/Winter 2010 collection, with ‘The coat’ remaining the centrepiece. Recognisable worldwide, the tall slim silhouette is encompassed in two key styles: the flat front, straight Covert coat and the subtly-waisted Retro frockcoat. Variations in cloth from 100% cashmere, to the urban and functional showerproof PU backed cotton/wool and inky black shearling – broaden further the appeal of this iconic garment. As a nod to Crombie's heritage, there's the authentic English wool, Military Great Coat, pictured here priced at £795.00, with chalk-filled, handcrafted brass buttons. Available in army green or air force blue archive cloth, it is a faithful World War II replica of the coat that Crombie supplied to the War Office for the officers of our armed forces. The formal collection offers slim or classic fit suits in the finest cloths, including a 150s cashmere blend, which are complemented by two-fold cotton shirts and silk ties handmade in England. Casual options include English wool checked jackets, a wool pea coat, moleskin, cords and denim jeans, hand-knits, lambswool zipped cardigan and classic cashmeres. To complete the Crombie lifestyle, the 2010 collection also includes a capsule line of luxury accessories; English hats and hand-rolled silk handkerchiefs to the bench-made English shoes. Prices for the Crombie collection range from £35.00 for handkerchiefs, to £2000.00 for the 100% Cashmere Double Breasted Coat. The Autumn/Winter 2010 Crombie collection will be available in stores from the 1 September 2010 in stores, concessions and online.
