Barbour's first ever presentation at London Collections Men took place at Swiss Church in Covent Garden. Guests were welcomed to join the celebration with glasses of champagne and mill around the church hall to see the clothing close up. The presentation was a mixture of clothing on rails and live models displaying how outfits are put together in this collection.

Autumn Winter 2015 looks back to the past, taking inspiration from the 1919 Barbour catalogue comprising of traditional tweeds. This starting point was then introduced to contemporary methods and styles to successfully combine heritage with modernity. The colour scheme was made up of three stories: navy, olive and brown which are all established Barbour favourites.

The Barbour man layers his clothing, pairing cotton shirts with tweed jackets, over twill trousers. For AW15 these were tucked into high cotton socks and smart brogues. Details within the collection included patchwork knitwear, elbow patches, speckled tweed and army camo prints.

These are a great middle ground between full on hightop and general trainer.

Heritage is a word/trend that has been around for a good few seasons now but it is becoming more and more loose as a descriptive word.

Essentially anything that has a decent history behind them can call themselves a heritage brand from Barbour to Converse even though the styles of the two are vastly different.

However with the key dictionary description being, something that is passed down from preceding generations the trend we are seeing most is one full of old Hollywood glamour, pilot jackets and smart shoes.

You can put a lot under the heritage banner and a lot of brands indeed are however we would way stick to the looks we have gathered together here. You will find them in vintage shops and of course if you want to spend a bit of money places like Barbour and Balley.

This year has very much been the year of heritage for fashion brands and not one to be left behind River Island have joined in on the fun by releasing their Holloway Road imprint.

Here's a quick history lesson for you incase you aren't aware of the high street chains background... River Island was founded by Bernard Lewis who opened a wool shop in the East End and then later opened a more permanent shop on Holloway Road in 1948 selling wearable mens workwear. This shop would eventually become River Island.

The Holloway Road collection has been created to celebrate that history and includes classically rugged and hugely comfortable menswear that's been dragged up to date and given a modern twist.

Prices start at £18 and the line can be found in stores and online now.
