Oxbridge Flannel’ contains timeless colours and patterns, such as plains and stripes in grey, black and navy while also bringing a unique and contemporary twist to classic cloths. Traditional designs have been given a fresh feel in a range of vibrant colours such as lilac, tobacco, wine and aquamarine.

The collection is broad, boasting an impressive 75 cloths, cleverly designed to be cohesive. Chalk stripes, houndstooth, checks and a modern twist on the classic glen check, all in harmonious colours, maintain an element of co-ordination throughout.
