Aviator sartorialism is one way to describe the Gieves and Hawkes Fall 2014 Menswear Collection. It features warm chocolate and olive tones that punctuate plush outerwear like wool trenches and shawl collars shearlings. The three-piece suit makes an interesting appearance in gray-on-gray flannel as well.

Amongst the bevy of tailoring brands showing this week in London, it was the beyond-meticulous attention to detail that makes this collection stand out. For instance, Zeiss-lensed eyewear is trimmed with leather and paired with sleek crocodile portfolio cases and hand-burnished monk-strap shoes.

Attention to detail is everything when it comes to designing a groundbreaking collection. Monochrome three-piece suits play an integral part in illustrating this point, because continuous color forces the eye to look at minute details embedded in the clothing. Firm lines, accessories and slight color differentiations all play a role in forming a larger picture.
