Heritage Check Suit

Unapologetically no nonsense knock-your-socks-off Sexton.

This bold retro check design harks back to the classic Nutters days, an era in which bold checks and bright colours ruled. Back when Edward and Tommy Nutter were dressing the likes of the Beatles and Mick Jagger, this suit would have been right at home.

For those occasions that allow for playful formality; dress the suit all the way up with one of our pin collar shirts and a silk tie for a loud, proud, nostalgic power-suit. For some statement where the full suit isn't required, the jacket pairs particularly well with our denim trousers - the wide parallels to keep the 70's vibe, or the contemporary cut denim for a more modern look.
Jacket Description

Our iconic generous peak lapels and strong architectural shoulders meet this magnificent bold check cloth, reminiscent of what Edward would have been cutting for customers through the 70's.

Retro and playful, this sports jacket is a fun and easy to wear piece to add to your formal and casual wardrobe alike. Pair with our denim parallel trousers and a sand safari shirt for effortless retro weekend cool, or dress it up with our Navy cotton contemporary trousers for a sleek modern silhouette and a classic colour palette.

Jacket Block

Our Heritage Jacket is the epitome of the Sexton look, cut with confident peak lapels, a straight shoulder line and one button to fasten. Single-breasted one-button jackets like this contribute to a lean, athletic look. The single button focuses the eye on the wearer’s natural waistline, while a broad lapel draws the eye towards the shoulders, which contrasts with the jacket’s slim waist. The overall impression is supremely elegant, and true to our art deco reference points.

Trouser Block

Those who, like us, enjoy a touch of romance in their dress may prefer trousers cut with pleats. Our Heritage Trousers are cut in the classic mid-century style with a high rise, generous legs and two deep, forward-facing pleats on each side of the waist. Trousers like these create the illusion of a slim waist and hips, and form the bottom half of the hourglass shape that starts with our jackets. We finish these with our signature pistol shaped side straps and slant-jet pockets; details which help our Heritage Trousers to retain a clean, fluid line through the leg.

Cloth information

Made from a beautifully luxurious blend of 70% Wool and 30% Silk, for a rich and lustreous finish
