Last month we asked our Managing Director and Textile department to show us their recommendations.

We've put together their selection which you can shop on our website here
 

Patrick - Managing Director



I chose this Barbour jacket, which is new to our collection. It's fully breathable, lightweight, and waterproof without being stiff to the touch. Available in a both Clay and Navy, this jacket is perfect for everyday wear and it's remains very practical. I can wear it everyday casually, if the weather is bad or even just to walk the dog.

Tom - Menswear Buyer



I chose this linen jacket as the material is classic for summer.This jacket is also a luxurious blend of linen and cashmere - designed exclusively for us by Johnsons of Elgin. Pairing it with this linen blend shirt makes the look more casual, but you could also dress it up making it very versatile.

Lorna - Ladieswear Buyer



I love the fabric and style of this jacket, and it's so versatile. It looks great worn with jeans at the weekend or dressing up a simple shift dress for a wedding. This blue is my favourite colour and the cut is timeless so I know I'll be wearing this one for a long time.

Sara - Footwear buyer 



I chose these sandals because they are the perfect summer shoe. They look great and they're functional as well. They are made of leather and have a sturdy sole, so I know they are a high quality shoe. The colour is perfect for summer, but they come in a bronze too. I can't wait to wear them this, and every summer!

Eilidh - Jewellery buyer



I chose this bee necklace because it is a designed to be the highest quality. Each piece of Claire Troughton jewellery is designed and handmade in her Cheshire studio using traditional goldsmithing techniques, which I think makes them extra special. This gold plated Bumble Bee necklace is definitely my favourite because he’s the perfect balance of elegant and quirky.

Karen - Knitwear buyer



You never know when it's going to get cold here, so I chose out this beautiful cashmere and silk blend hooded top. It is the perfect piece for layering up in winter or even for a light chill in the summer, it'll keep you warm no matter the season. It's also available in lavender blue or green so I don't have to be tied to one colour.
