“The wardrobe update you need for spring” – The Times
Introducing our Fine Cord suit. A nod to this season’s 70s trend, this co-ordinating couple of jacket and wide-leg trousers worn together or separately is guaranteed to put a little pep in your step right through spring.
Say the word ‘corduroy’ and for many it immediately conjures up images of overly-stiff and unforgiving fabric that seems to stand to attention of its own accord. But there is an alternative out there and it’s supremely luxe.
This season’s white cord is the highest-quality on the market; with a slouchy hand-feel, it falls in the most flattering way, skimming your silhouette rather than making you look two sizes bigger than you really are.
“ME+EM’s cotton corduroy patch-pocket jacket and wide-leg trousers are – wait for it – machine washable.” – The Times
And to make it even better, it’s machine-washable. Because it’s January and no one has the inclination to be paying dry-cleaning bills.
The Wide-Leg Trouser
“ME+EM’s fine white cord flares looked amazing on half The Telegraph’s fashion team this winter, even those of us under 5’5”. And you can machine-wash them – essential if you don’t want huge cleaning bills.” – The Daily Telegraph
Designed with ingenious tabs on the waist, these wide-leg trousers can be worn on the waist or the hips according to your preference and mood. With a button fastening at the hem, style these over flats or boots to create the illusion of even longer legs. Those with shorter legs, don’t worry: we’ve designed these trousers especially so that they can be shortened up by to 5cm without losing the on-trend silhouette.
The Shirt Jacket
Who said a jacket can’t be versatile? Designed with an internal draw-cord waist, this 70s-inspired, utility-style shirt jacket can be worn in a straight fit or drawn in at the waist for a more fitted silhouette. Turn up the cuffs to shorten the sleeves and achieve a more relaxed look, or wear them long for a classic look.
