London-based designer Nicholas Daley debuted his Fall/Winter 2018 collection today at London Fashion Week: Mens. The collection, dubbed “Red Clay,” represents another step forward for Daley’s eponymous line of progressive menswear.

“Red Clay” is Daley’s latest collection of ethically-sourced menswear, drawing more inspiration from European traditional wear. Models wearing George Cox creepers show off a range of loose trousers, hunting jackets, overcoats, and sensible headgear. This release refrains from the louder patterns and fabrics of Daley’s past collections, emphasizing comfortable fabrics like knit cotton, corduroy, and herringbone wool in dark hues. Subtly striped garments with band collars are styled with revised work jackets boasting substantial lapels and elbow patches, all recalling the daily uniforms of London’s blue collar workers from decades past, updated with contemporary cuts and high-end fabrics. To drive the point home, the collection finishes with a black wool kilt, a staple of Irish heritage.
