Herschel Supply X Gore-Tex Rambler Hat
With baseball styles making a strong case for caps all summer, the wider brim looks set to return for winter. Ahead of the game, global accessories brand Herschel Supply has teamed up with Gore-Tex on a water-repellent Rambler Hat.
The topper is rendered in a three-layer ripstop fabric, engineered to be both breathable and extremely durable. Use your loaf and pair this statement piece with pared-back semi-casual classics.

River Island Khaki Zip Sleeve T-Shirt
In a world of timeless style staples, it’s easy to see how we men can quickly find ourselves dressing alike. Therefore, there’s an underestimated importance in the finer details.
Giving the T-shirt a military twist, River Island has bolstered the classic crew neck in a on-trend khaki colourway and added a zip detail to the arm.
Available at River Island, priced £18.
NikeLab x Stone Island Windrunner
The Windrunner has been Nike’s athletic posterboy since the late 1970s. Forty years on, the recognisable tech-shell yoke is still going strong, so the brand has teamed up with Stone Island to create an amped-up version of the classic sports piece.
Pairing style and performance, the jacket is cut from a lightweight, breathable, high-performance membrane in six colourways and can also be packed into its own inside pocket and carried as a shoulder bag.
Available at Stone Island, priced £550.
Community Clothing Men’s Straight-Cut Jeans
As if menswear label E. Tautz and tailor Norton & Sons weren’t enough to be grateful to Patrick Grant for, now the designer is on a one-man mission to revive the British textile industry.
Community Clothing, Grant’s new non-profit label, uses factories’ slow periods for its production in order to generate jobs and reduce closures. The first collection from the applaudable venture includes a series of essential pieces, such as classically-cut raw denim jeans. Our hero.
Available at eBay, priced £65.
Lou Dalton x John Smedley
When she’s not turning out masterful menswear under her own label, or serving as a figurehead for home-grown talent at London Collections Men, Lou Dalton can almost always be found producing some form of collaboration.
Adding to a list of conquests that includes Jaeger, River Island and Grenson, Dalton has worked with John Smedley to produce two knits at the British heritage brand’s historic Derbyshire mill.
The results are so stylish that she has already been tapped to create a further 12 next season.
Available at John Smedley, priced £295.
Le Coq Sportif Asse Full Zip Sweatsthirt
Hip-hop legends Run DMC have probably influenced your wardrobe in more ways than you realise. Just look at the upcoming season, it’s been Tricky not to come across a menswear collection that doesn’t include an old-school zip-up track top.
The retro athletic staple is back and it’s no longer just for the athletics track. The sporty, do-it-all piece is capable of forming the foundations of a number of a dressed up and dressed down looks.
Available at Le Coq Sportif, priced £75.
Turnbull And Asser The Great Gatsby Cotton Shirt
There’s a moment in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s 1925 novel The Great Gatsby when, in conversation with Nick Carraway, the titular character says: “You can’t repeat the past? Of course you can.”
Turns out the rags-to-riches playboy was right because heritage British firm Turnbull And Asser has reinstated the historic blue micro check ‘Gatsby’ shirt and tie that hallmarked Robert Redford as a style icon in the 1974 film.
Available at Turnbull And Asser, priced £195.
