At Charles Barker, weíve taken our old favorites, built from a foundation of authentic hats, refined coats and contemporary socks, and evolved them into a limited-edition range of essentials we feel no guy should go without. A nod to both vintage Buddhist bracelets and heirloom suits, the new collection is about our rich heritage. For example, our heritage vests is sure to keep the worst of summerís elements at bay. Constructed with the utmost care and attention to detail, this staple is made with the arguably the best angora and genuine linen. The fit is louche but not too louche and you can use it to sharpen up any look or use it as Scott Schuman bait. Thatís what you get when you use time honored traditions and the very best materials. Expertly handcrafted by our artisans in Italy, our burgundy shawl-collar smoking jackets will surely last a lifetime and only get better with age.
