Ac­tor Chris­tian Cooke takes the lead in River Is­land’s new sea­son’s tai­lor­ing

High-street stal­wart River Is­land has upped its game for au­tumn/win­ter 2017 with a fresh tai­lor­ing col­lec­tion. Pro­duced from higher-qual­ity fab­rics than pre­vi­ously used and cut to a more grown-up block (less bum-freezer jack­ets and spray-on trousers; more slim, flat­ter­ing suit­ing and slacks which fit prop­erly), the slick col­lec­tion is ex­em­pli­fied by this rich, navy vel­vet suit, as worn by up­com­ing Bri­tish ac­tor Chris­tian Cooke. Worn over a plain white crew-neck T-shirt, it’s proof this sea­son’s vel­vet trend needn’t be re­served for black tie gath­er­ings or, in­deed, open­ing nights.
