Heritage is one thing the British certainly do well. They exemplify a respect for the past and incorporate that mentality into their dress. Take Will Lusk for example. He dug his Burberry trench out from the depths of his grandfather's closet and has made it his own. Mixed with a perfectly posh silk scarf, fit for a smoking room no doubt, and denim turned up at the ankle, he mixes youthful pieces with those that make a strong nod to days gone by. Loafers, cable knit, and Remembrance Day poppies - on paper it sounds like Will's outfit should teeter on the edge of being old fashioned but it is clearly anything but that. Will's style embodies everything I adore about British fashion.
