What is an Ascot you may ask: not quite a scarf, not quite a cravat, it is a classic, versatile piece of neckwear. Our collection, made by French artisans Simonnot Godard (makers of the world’s finest linen pocket squares), is a wool-silk blend that can be worn high on the neck for warmth, or loosely hanging as a touch of colour and pattern in warmer months. The Ascot’s thin, light construction makes it easy to wear either casually or as a relaxed alternative to a tie; an essential option when neither a tie nor scarf will quite get the job done.

Introducing Crockett & Jones’ Skye II in Dark Brown Shell Cordovan. Named for the Isle of Skye off Scotland’s rugged north-west coast, the Skye II is a beautiful all-weather boot. It features a double leather sole and the unparalleled durability of shell cordovan uppers. Slightly sleeker than its cousin the Islay, it brings elegance to a casual outfit and lends a rugged edge when worn with a suit or jacket and trousers.
Crockett & Jones Clifford in Tan Antique Calf
This special order for DG is a beautiful full brogue from Crockett & Jones’ Hand Grade collection. The full brogue, also known as a wingtip brogue, is an elegant shoe that pairs equally well with a suit, chinos or even jeans; it evokes a bygone era of classic menswear, one that never goes out of style.

A well-worn monk.
Crockett & Jones’ Malvern is a classic single monk on the slim round-toed 341 last. Crockett & Jones use only the finest calf hides to ensure that each pair develops patina and character over the years (as seen with this pair in chestnut burnished calf). The Malvern is available at Double Monk in both black and chestnut.
