This season, an eye-catching miniature paisley pattern enlivens classic styles across the men’s Authentic collection. Originally used in Iranian and Indian design, the twisted tear drop pattern made its way to British shores by way of travelers and soldiers during the early 19th century. Men would return from foreign lands with patterned gifts, woven in rich silks and cashmere.

Noting the popularity of the exotic designs, British textile merchants were eager to reproduce the patterns closer to home. The town of Paisley in Scotland, which was famed for its textile manufacturing (and incidentally had been home to the Stewart family, after which Stewart tartan is named), became a key producer of the design which fittingly adopted the town’s name. In the early days paisley fabrics were intricately produced on weaving looms, however this timely system was soon dropped in favour of printing. The new speedy and cost effective production methods led many designers to use the distinctive tear drop design in their work and in turn cemented its place in British design.

The pattern was notably favoured by the mods during the 1960s and famously made its way onto the iconic Fender Telecaster guitar during the 1970s.
Modernised and simplified for spring 2013, the geometric pattern looks striking printed across the three button shirt and the woven Oxford style. The small scale two-colour teardrops create an almost polka dot effect when viewed from a distance, adding flashes of maroon and yellow to blue based fabrics. Elsewhere in the collection it brings a distinctive edge to both footwear and accessories.
