Lee Cooper Norris Slim Fit Jeans
The menswear world has screen icons like James Dean to thank for making jeans the staple they are today. However, Europe`s oldest denim brand, Lee Cooper, came well before the Rebel Without a Cause.

John Sterner Turtleneck Fisherman Sweater
As if stylish and functional raincoats weren’t enough to be grateful to Alexander Stutterheim for, the Swedish designer has gone and launched a new knitwear brand.

Available at John Sterner, price tbc.
Superdry Rookie Heavy Weather Field Jacket
Like most things in modern menswear, the field jacket got its start in the military, but soon took a different turn as a staple of safari life. Both these experiences contributed to influencing the rugged, utilitarian versions we see today, like Superdry’s fleece-lined Rookie model in on-trend khaki green.
Available at Superdry, priced £84.99.
Dr Martens x Nanamica Penny Loafers
More than 60 years after its first shoe came off the production line, Dr Martens is still walking tall.

Available at Nanamica, priced £170.
BAPE x Champion Camoflage Sweatshirt
Old friends A Bathing Ape and Champion are at it again. The pair’s latest cozy boy swag takes the Japanese streetwear label’s signature camo print and applies it to the US athletic brand’s sportswear such as T-shirts, sweatshirts, joggers and the season-favorite coach jacket.
