Shopwatch - Weaver's Door

When Esquire took to the streets of Liverpool in search of Britain’s Best-Dressed Real Man, the fashion team unearthed a sartorial gem of a different kind – independent menswear store Weavers Door. Overseen by Lee Fleming and Tim Keating, who share buying duties, the store stocks a wide range of heritage brands, all immaculately presented. When we caught up with them, they showed us that there’s more to Liverpool than the Beatles and…the Beatles.

The Brand we should be buying?
Lee: I'm a big admirer of Folk. The collections are totally wearable, always building on previous seasons, and the detailing is superb. I’m also disgustingly excited about the arrival of Oliver Spencer to Weavers Door this A/W11. Quality fabrics, old-school construction and exquisite craftsmanship – what more do you need?
Tim: David Keyte at Universal Works; he’s creating clean, unfussy, well-structured garments that can be mixed-up and worn whenever.

The Trend we should be rocking?
Tim: Unstructured tailoring is coming into its own. I think we’ll see softer shapes in jackets and trousers next year. Pairing a jacket with tailored trousers or shorts, and a soft leather formal shoe – a kind of ‘Englishman abroad’ look.
Lee: I agree, actually. You get the best of both worlds - the presentation, shape and fit of tailoring, with plenty of added comfort.

The Trend we shouldn’t be rocking?
Lee: Cheap replicas of garments. If it's not broke don't fix it - that's our ethos. We want to present the best brands, with authenticity and heritage behind them, like the Harrington Jacket from Baracuta and the Duffle Coat from Gloverall.
Tim: It has to be the diamanté t-shirt. Please – no more rhinestones.

Besides menswear, what are you into?
Lee: I’m pretty sure even if I tried my hardest I'd still be working with clothing in some way, shape and form. It’s a passion, bordering on an addiction, for me. www.weaversdoor.com
