LONDON (15 October 2021) - Esquire, the UK’s premium luxury men’s magazine brand, has today launched its fourth edition of the Esquire Edit. Designed in partnership with the Esquire team, the Edit is a capsule collection of special-edition wardrobe staples, made in collaboration with 10 of the best brands in menswear.
For the first time ever, the collection is available to purchase in its entirety at the iconic London department store and haberdasher, Liberty, both instore and online, in addition to Esquire.com/UK and the brands’ respective stores and sites. The Edit is brokered and managed by IMG.
The limited-edition range consists of:
Cotton crew-neck T-Shirt by Esquire x Sunspel, £80
Sunspel’s mastery of cotton basics is unparalleled, as this two-tone T-shirt attests. Lightweight, ultra-fine, long staple Pima cotton – and the perfect fit.
Cotton polo shirt by Esquire x Sunspel, £115
Sunspel’s classic Riviera polo was originally tailored for Daniel Craig’s James Bond in Casino Royale, so not only does it offer that enduring style, but we know it can handle the rigours of the life of a Double-O.
Cotton and silk scarf by Esquire x Liberty, £210
The prints at Liberty are world-famous, and Esquire is delighted to have an exclusive for the Edit. Cut from a cotton and silk mix, it’s extraordinarily soft, but with a weight suitable for the chilly winter months.
Cotton crew-neck sweatshirt by Esquire x Sunspel, £135
Sunspel’s classic loopback sweatshirt – in Esquire off-white with contrast collar detailing – is cosy and warm and perfect for lazy days, but plenty slick enough for work, too.
Two-tone loafers by Esquire x Duke + Dexter, £240
One of the surprise essentials of the season, these two-tone leather penny loafers are by British Brand Duke + Dexter, and the colourway is exclusive to the Esquire Edit.
Seersucker shirt by Esquire x YMC, £150
Made in black seersucker, with Esquire off-white detailing, YMC’s Doc Savage shirt treads the line between utility and elegance. It has the workwear vibe, but the seersucker elevates everything to an altogether seeker place.
Shawl-collar cardigan by Esquire x Oliver Spencer, £270
Made by one of our favourite designers, this cardigan has real Steve-McQueen-in-the-Hamptons vibes. It’s snug, and will look great with a certain pair of mid-blue denim jeans.
Seersucker Trousers by Esquire x YMC, £150
Named in honour of skate legend Tony Alva, these YMC trousers are a testament to slacker style: loose cut, with a tapered, gently cropped leg and a drawstring waist. Worn with the Doc Savage shirt, they complete the perfect un-suit.
Backpack by Esquire x Ally Capellino, £650
Ally Capellino is one of the stalwart brands in leather accessories, and the Hoy backpack, with its Calvert leather and webbing straps, is super tough, but also equipped with clever storage.
Graphic knit sweater by Esquire x NN07, £200
The first graphic knit to feature in the Edit. Dress it up with smart trousers and chunky black lace-ups or dress down with the Edwin jeans and a pair of trainers.
Cotton shirt by Esquire x NN07, £130
A complete essential for any winter wardrobe, NN07’s Silas overshirt, realised in Esquire off-white, features two chest pockets and is cut with a square, boxy hem, so is perfect for layering over knitwear and sweats.
Selvidge denim Jeans by Esquire x EDWIN, £190
An icon of the denim universe, Edwin has been making incredible jeans since 1947. For this year’s Edit, Esquire has a special edition of the regular tapered fit in mid-blue Japanese rainbow selvedge denim - the perfect go-anywhere, do-anything pair of jeans.
Woven belt by Esquire x Anderson’s, £90
Anderson’s makes all of its belts in Italy and is one of the foremost names in the industry, offering that perfect mix of supreme function and classic, timeless form.
Pouch by Esquire x Ally Capellino, £50
A pouch will always come in handy, and the leather of this Ally Capellino number will take on a patina as you use it, only making it cooler as the years go on.
Sunglasses by Esquire x Kirk Originals, £225
Founded in 1919, Kirk Originals is one of the best in the business. These Kirven frames, shaped from tortoiseshell acetate, are finished with Esquire off-white detailing.
Charlie Teasdale, Style Director, Esquire UK says: “I’m thrilled to be launching the fourth edition of the Esquire Edit, and I’m happy to say that once again, it’s bigger and better than the year before. Alongside usual collaborators, such as Sunspel and Oliver Spencer, it’s great welcome new partners for the 2021 collection, including Ally Capellino, YMC, Kirk Originals and Duke & Dexter. We’re also thrilled to be partnering with the iconic London department store Liberty, which is testament to the sustained growth and ambition of the Esquire Edit project. As one of the bastions of British elegance, style and taste, Liberty is the perfect partner for the project, and we hope the collaboration will last long into the future.”
Angela Kim, Senior Director, Hearst Global Licensing says: “After three successful years, we are once again pleased to offer this year’s collection, expertly curated by the editors of Esquire. In addition to our esteemed brand partners, for the first time ever we are bringing the entire collection to life in partnership with Liberty as our exclusive retailer of the Edit 2021. As always, the products are available online and at the brands’ respective stores, but this year, fashion enthusiasts can feel, try and match the offerings in Liberty’s iconic London flagship store.”
Laura Robertshaw, Buying Manager, Menswear, Liberty, says: “For the last three years the Esquire Edit has been an exciting part of the menswear scene, with a breadth of brands coming together to create exciting and exclusive offerings for the menswear market. When the team at Esquire reached out to collaborate, we jumped at the chance to work with them and created fifteen exclusive products across ten incredible brands. Not only have we expanded our offering with even more exclusives - from homegrown brands, to labels further afield - we’ve also worked with Esquire to create an exclusive Liberty scarf. We hope that this is the beginning of a long and fruitful relationship with such an iconic publication.”
