a torquay tycoon
When it comes to Universal Works we've come to expect nothing less, nothing too much. And that's why we love it. SS13 is, as ever, beautifully straightforward. More form and fit than fashion. And "more Torquay than St Tropez" according to the brand's founder David Keyte. His father the inspiration; a working guy finally making enough money for a summer holiday and feeling like a tycoon being able to buy a new outfit.
There's a short and skegness polo for deckchair days; a zip up biker jacket for breezy strolls along the promenade; the bright blue Brighton shirt's cheery anchor print for some seaside fun. And at the end of the holiday, the Drayton jacket and Aston pant are perfect understated dapper for a slap-up fish supper on the English Riviera.
