Aquascutum is an iconic British brand that dates back to the 1850’s – the label has come a long way over the years and although it is most famous for macs and trenchcoats the brand is also renowned for its selection of classic shirting. If you’re going to own one shirt from this menswear brand then make sure it’s the club check shirt – a staple of the collection since its launch in 1976.
The club check was introduced as part of Aquascutum’s “Club 92” program – a diffusion brand that was intended to give Aquascutum a more modern and fashion led feel. The check was a huge success and has been a crucial part of the brand’s identity ever since.
This season see’s the return of the brand to Xile and we’re very excited to re-introduce the club check shirt to our range for AW 2014. This is classic, ready to wear tailoring at its best – a genuine design classic that will enhance any wardrobe.
