Wool-Blend Sweater

Comfy and stylish, this wool-blend sweater is based on a vintage fisherman’s design that was unearthed from private archives. This textural piece graduates from a herringbone weave to ribbing. Embrace the rustic feel and team it with brown or deep-green corduroy trousers.

Shearling-Trimmed Leather Aviator Jacket

We love leather and we also love a good aviator… This smooth leather aviator jacket is fitted with a detachable shearling collar that looks cool turned up against the cold. The full lining provides warmth and a bit of structure.

Houndstooth Virgin Wool Coat

This specific houndstooth overcoat is made with practicality and style in mind. It has a roomy fit that means you can comfortably slip it over a jacket, while the flashes of red will brighten up winter outfits. The unlined construction shows off the expert craftsmanship and as the fabric is double-faced, it looks just as good inside out. Horn buttons and handy flap pockets round things off nicely.

We love how the Mr. P collection offers the kind of timeless foundation pieces that are essential to every wardrobe. This zip-up sweater has been knitted in Italy from pliable five-gauge extra fine merino wool – it’s weighty enough to wear as a light jacket between seasons. You’ll find that the green shade works equally well with dark and light colours.

Slim-Fit Selvedge Denim Jeans

We love quality pieces, especially these Mr P jeans have been made in Okayama, Japan, from narrow-loom selvedge denim – the trim at the centre-back belt loop is a marker of the fabric’s quality. Detailed with contrasting tobacco stitching for an authentic finish, this indigo pair has a comfortable mid-rise waistband and tidy slim-fit shape. You’ll find that they mould to your frame as you break them in.
