Vístete bien, vive bien! These words could very easily be the motto for the latest collection from Peter Jackson, which draws inspiration from the beauty of Spain and specifically the stunning city of Toledo. With seven decades of expertise in helping men look their best, the Australian designer has come a long way and this latest range sees that remarkable evolution continue, introducing new categories for the brand and giving the whole affair a subtle but undeniable Spanish-inspired twist. As you’d expect, the new collection serves up the kind of immaculate tailoring Peter Jackson is famed for, alongside shirting, knitwear, and footwear staples, but also sees a surprising yet welcome expansion of its offering with a chic selection of more casual items from windbreakers to peacoats.
In addition to this deeper dive into more relaxed outerwear is an embrace of bolder textures and patterns within the suiting range, while the keen-eyed will note Peter Jackson has two colour palettes at work throughout the broader collection. The first of these pulls from the vibrancy of Toledo’s culture, using a selection of attention-grabbing oranges, reds, greens and blues, while the second acts as a nod to the city’s enchanting architecture, incorporating a range of more muted hues taken from its stone walls, steps and walkways. When taken as a whole, the range embodies a sophisticated sense of worldly adventure mixed with an undeniably European elegance.
Below, we’ve selected Man of Many’s highlights from the collection, which is brimming with items that have the potential to become cornerstones of your wardrobe for winter and beyond.
Luciano Indigo Plaid Suit
We think we’ve found our special occasion outfit for the season with this beautiful two-piece suit. Taking a vibrant indigo base and overlaying it with a fine blue plaid, the Luciano Suit offers up a generous amount of versatility, looking as striking over a crisp white shirt and tie as it does with a refined turtleneck knit. Plus, the top half works wonders when taking on duties as a sports jacket as well.
Firenze Blue Dobby Suit
Crafted from premium “super 100s” merino wool, the Firenze Blue Dobby Suit is a slightly more understated option than the Luciano, but no less elegant. Embodying the European inspiration that runs throughout Peter Jackson’s new range, it features soft shoulder construction and a slimmer, more modern cut to ensure a sleek silhouette, helping you turn heads from the office boardroom to the streets of Toledo.
Prezza Red Mouline Jacket
If you’re looking to add a little devil-may-care flair to your next ensemble then the versatile Prezza Red Mouline Jacket is sure to deliver. Dressed up or down, the rich red is undeniably eye-catching, while the combination of luxurious wool and mouline fabric provides a unique texture that elevates the whole affair.
Leon Terracotta Windbreaker
Everyone likes to look good while getting on with the job at hand, which is why we’re big fans of the Leon Terracotta Windbreaker’s blend of fashion and functionality. Designed to guard against the wind and rain while keeping you looking sharp—thanks in part to the zip-up and button closure—it has buttoned patch pockets that are perfect for carrying the essentials, while the cleverly concealed collar hoodie is adjustable in order to optimise protection against the elements. A lightweight tactical option that will serve you well year-round, this windbreaker is emblematic of the ongoing evolution of Peter Jackson’s premium offering.
Archer Green Peacoat
With the onset of the cooler weather, you simply cannot go wrong with a peacoat and this dark green number is one of the finest examples of this classic style that we’ve seen in years. It’ll certainly keep the cold out thanks to its premium wool blend, while the tailored fit, broad lapels and strap detailing around the cuffs will ensure your look is always on point. Plus, vertical side pockets add a welcome touch of functionality to this timeless piece.
Black Turtleneck Knit
If you saw the Man of Many crew decked out for our recent 10-year birthday party you’ll know we swear by a good turtleneck and this immaculate example from Peter Jackson’s new range means we’ll be adding to our collection. Made from soft-to-the-touch machine washable merino wool, it offers both comfort and warmth and always looks the part, whether worn under a tailored suit, sports jacket or more heavy-duty outerwear.
Vivaldi Double Monk Shoe
Anyone who’s even slightly sartorially minded knows that of all the footwear choices available to the well-dressed man, the double monk strap reigns supreme. Adding a touch of flair to casual and formal outfits alike, this upmarket style is crafted from 100 per cent Italian premium leather and boasts a timeless double golden buckle and removable sock, resulting in a perfect tribute to the sophisticated city that inspired Peter Jackson’s rich and diverse new range.
There’s no doubt that Toledo has provided a deep well of inspiration for the collection. Perched atop a hill above the plains of Castilla La Mancha, the city has a rich and diverse heritage stretching back centuries, which has impacted art, architecture, and fashion in immeasurable ways.
