The Orlebar Brown clothing brand was founded in 2007 by photographer Adam Brown in London. Orlebar Brown has reinvented sporty, elegant leisurewear and has proven with its unique tailored approach that men can also look good in casual outfits. The company is one of the most innovative in its sector and continues to set high standards when it comes to comfort, quality and functionality. IWC Schaffhausen and Orlebar Brown are united by the passion they feel every day for craftsmanship and innovation. As is the case with IWC and its watches, Orlebar Brown places great importance on the smallest details. Based on the pattern of a pair of traditional men’s suit trousers, the brand’s popular swim shorts are crafted from 60 elements and provide a perfect fit. 

To mark the start of their collaboration, IWC has introduced the Portugieser Yacht Club Chronograph Edition “Orlebar Brown”. Working together, IWC and Orlebar Brown also designed a nine-piece “Capsule Collection” of resort wear. One of the highlights is a photographic swim short with signature side fasteners, depicting a sailing yacht from Solaris Yachts. Orlebar Brown also helped to customise a Solaris 55 to perfectly reflect the spirit and the visual codes of the new Portugieser watch collection from IWC.
