Knitwear is a fundamental part of any wardrobe - whether you're wearing it on its own or layering it with a shirt and tailoring, it offers warmth, comfort and ease of wear. For New Zealand's changeable climate, that’s doubly true - having a soft, adaptable layer that can be easily added to an outfit is near-essential - especially one that resists creasing.

The thinking was simple - with more clients than ever looking for comfortable, transitional clothing as well as more traditional styles, we wanted to create light, soft and elegant pieces that offered maximum wearability without sacrificing their sartorial style.
It took us a long time to find a production partner that could deliver on our vision of softer, lighter, more sartorial knitwear.

Our first drop of AW21 knitwear keeps the classics covered. There are versatile crew neck and v-neck sweaters, perfect for layering, timeless roll necks and zip-through sweaters, which work great either on their own or under a jacket.
We will be expanding the collection with some exciting new styles over the coming weeks - let us know if you’ve got questions or would like to try a piece on in person.

Jeans might come from a different clothing tradition than tailoring, but they're a fundamental part of any man's wardrobe and with Crane Brothers Denim, we can now make them with the same level of craft and construction that's usually reserved for handmade suiting.
Comfortable, sturdy and stylish - the chino is a wardrobe staple without peer. Its strength lies in its versatility, able to look at ease with a simple knit and sneakers as well as with a tailored shirt and jacket.
