Orlebar Brown’s GT Collection Draws Inspiration from Classic Car Designs

When it comes to relaxed and refined style, you can never go wrong with Orlebar Brown. The British brand makes some of the classiest, most stylish, and most comfortable garments in the space. Its designs are timeless classics reimagined through a modern British lens, which lends for a more sophisticated and elegant look. These are the types of clothes you’d see James Bond wearing as he boards a sailboat in Monaco — which makes sense, as the superspy previously donned the brand’s garments in Skyfall and No Time to Die. In its latest capsule collection, Orlebar Brown looks to the automotive space to inspire its chic GT collection.

Channeling the “elegance, style, speed, and romance” of iconic racers, the GT collection fuses vintage car design with the classic style of Orlebar Brown to create a collection of swim shorts, polos, shirts, sweats, and even a beach towel. A massive capsule consisting of more than 70 different pieces, the GT collection includes a fashionable iteration of virtually any garment you would need for a trendy day at the beach or the track.

Its linen t-shirts are lightweight, breathable, and form-fitting for a luxurious and flattering fit, while its Terry Toweling polo shirts provide a velvety texture through their premium cotton construction. The collection also includes an array of different zip-ups, tailored shirts, and polos featuring retro motorsports-inspired striping. South of the waistline, the GT collection offers a variety of chinos, shorts, and pants that are sure to up your style quotient. Most notably, several cuts of OB’s famed tailored swim shorts — including the Bulldog and Setter — show up here, festooned with more racing-derived stripes.

All in all, this wide-ranging capsule gives wearers a laundry list of stylish options and combinations to enhance their wardrobe. Pricing for the GT collection starts at $145, and all items can be purchased on Orlebar Brown’s website.
