I popped all the way over to the other side of the office where I work to check out Stone-Dri's offerings for this year's Spring/Summer & Autumn/Winter seasons. The Manchester based menswear brand who specialise in outerwear have been making some nice pieces since their comeback last year. Stone-Dri were pretty big players in the menswear market back in the 1950s, specialising technical outerwear, usually in waterproof and protective fabrics.
Above are a few pieces that caught my eye, as always with menswear it's all in the detail. The green and olive tweed 3-pocket jacket was the standout, which is based on one of their original models. Both of this year's collections are on solid and functional pieces which can easily slot into any chap's wardrobe without making too much noise. Other than jackets there's cord shirts, contrast pocket t-shirts, buttoned sweatshirts and some nice heavy knits. All manufactured within the walls of Greater Manchester, winner.
