Eastie Empire: Sporting Attire from an Older Era

A gentleman on the sports field, Francis Baker was typical of his era, sporting a tailored jersey that was smart for the occasion.

Our jacket in brushed grey mélange is a fitting replica, with tailored features and finished with cream herringbone tape and shirt buttons.

We discovered a pair of army sporting trousers dating back to c.1910, with ‘Ronald E. Fisher’ No. 1017, penned on the cream linen waistband.

A hundred years later we have reconstructed this pattern in similar grey mélange fabric, retaining the original features of back pleats, button fly and cream cotton lining. Like the original they are slim fitting.
