Words by Mr Mansel Fletcher

Mix the boundless energy of Manhattan's creative community with the elegance associated with London's more gentlemanly residents and you get an idea of the rag & bone vibe. Run by two Englishmen in New York, Mr Marcus Wainwright and Mr David Neville, the brand's aesthetic is a refined take on classic American casualwear. In Mr Wainwright's words, "It's about merging a downtown New York aesthetic with English tailoring, to make everyone look and feel more polished and refined."

This summer Messrs Wainwright and Neville have created an exclusive nine-piece collection just for MR PORTER. It's like a rag & bone greatest hits album, with Mr Wainwright explaining that, "All" the looks in this collection are based on signature rag & bone pieces." The new range contains most of the things a man will need to see him through the season, including khaki shorts, a plaid button-down shirt, lightweight jeans, cotton and linen shirts, a waistcoat, summer trousers and a safari-style blazer. The range will take a man from a weekend by the ocean (whether in Montauk, Mougins or Marbella) straight into a Monday morning business meeting.

When asked what it was that they were reaching for with the collection Mr Wainwright replied, "A smart look that's effortless - that's an element in all our collections. It's about feeling good in what you wear."
