Gibson London: Flying the flag for British design

Gibson London: Flying the flag for British design

A brand whose roots lie in great British design, it's no surprise that Gibson London has expanded from its humble beginnings on Carnaby Street to store shelves across the UK since its inception in the 1990’s. BQ looked at how the brand has cemented its name in British fashion history.

Gibson London is a quintessential British menswear brand that was born out of the city and bred to make individuals stand out from the crowd.

The style is centred around city elegance; immaculate with a hidden touch. At the weekend Gibson London is more relaxed, using softer tailoring in tweeds, cottons and other hand-selected natural fabrics.

From the finest men’s suits, blazers and jackets to shirts, coordinated ties and accessories, fine quality and attention to detail abounds in every garment making them a pleasure to wear and a pride to own.

BQ looked at the brand’s latest autumnwinter collection developed by head designer Sarah Howells in Leeds and picked out some of the must-haves for this season.


How we wear it:

The Pow Checked Mixer Jacket from Gibson London is a superb clean cut blazer with a subtle check pattern that stands out against the weave of the fabric.

The carefully considered design is detailed with vintage style wooden buttons and narrow notched lapels. Additional features include the brown buttons and signature Gibson scissors lapel pin.

Due to the other products we’ve picked out, we recommend buying a second handkerchief to compliment the jacket, which we’ll come to later.

Gibson London Suit 

Gibson’s knitwear collection is perfect as a layering piece in the evening or on cooler summer days. The v-neck jumpers are made from luxurious Italian merino wool. These breathable pieces are available in a bright array of colours to match any combination of outfits.

To compliment the outfit, add a preppy twist to your fall wardrobe with this neat knitted tie from Gibson London. The tie is cut slim from a knitted fabric.

Gibson Tie 

This clean cut checked shirt from Gibson London is cut from a beautiful soft cotton that is neither too crisp nor too fluffy. The shirt has a checked pattern and is finished with a collar that fastens with hidden buttons. Other details include cutaway barrel cuffs with two buttons and a two piece yoke.

Gibson's moleskin trousers are a 5 pocket pair of casual chinos with a zip fly and button tab. The trousers have a welt coin pocket at the front and buttoned pockets at the back.

Gibson Navy Trousers 

As previously mentioned, we picked out a second handkerchief to compliment the outfit. This Gibson London Handkerchief has been made from the softest polyester fabric that has been printed with a paisley print. It has been neatly finished off with a rolled hem.
