The Forties’ style trench and trilby – international signs of the Private Investigator, Spillane style – gets a modernist update here with the subtle texture tweaks making that melody of midnight blacks sing in matte and gloss leather and wool. The orange pop is a redemptive touch suggesting he’s not such a shadowy figure after all and also a nod to the Seventies’ – that other era of trench mania, which is likewise reflected in the plastic and oversized shades.
