Serge DeNimes Distressed Denim Jacket
It’s fair to say reality TV stars haven’t always set a high watermark when it comes to their sartorial knack. With one exception: Oliver Proudlock. It doesn’t even bear mentioning which show the, ahem, Chelsea boy came into the spotlight on, because his Serge DeNimes clothing line shows he’s about much more
Case in point: ‘Locks grey denim jacket, which takes the current trend for battered and bruised jeans and applies the same distressing up top.
Available to pre-order at Serge DeNimes, priced £84.99.
River Island Stone Check Insert Double Layer Jumper
Want to layer like a player but don’t want to wait until the cold really kicks in, or worse, spend a fair portion your day doing the 9-5 in a stuffy cubical?
The cheeky chaps at River Island have come up with a solution by taking a soft cotton crew neck and adding a check shirt layer. All of the style, none of the sweat.
Available at River Island, priced £30.
H&M Slim Regular Tapered Jeans
Ask us if we think more men should dress like Becks and our response will be along the lines of “is rain wet?”, “is the Pope catholic?”, or something equally sarcastic. Luckily, for three seasons now H&M has made it possible to score goldenball’s signature style by offering a capsule wardrobe of hand-selected items designed by football’s Adonis.
The latest Beckham-approved gear includes pieces like these 5-pocket slim-fit jeans in almost black washed denim.
Available at H&M, priced £29.99.
Lock & Co X Carhartt WIP Voyager Rollable Trilby
Historic London milliner Lock & Co lays claim to the legend that a postcard from abroad was once delivered to the West End store, addressed to ‘The best hatters in the world, London’ with no other directions.
Even after 340 years of posties getting familiar with them, the brand is every bit as relevant today. To celebrate the opening of the new Carhartt WIP store in London’s Soho, the pair has teamed up to give a new look to Lock’s iconic foldable trilby.
Available at Carhartt WIP 72 – 74 Brewer Street, London, priced £180.
Reiss Moscow Pocket Wool Jacket
Not all outerwear is created equal and even the best look can be brought down by a bad coat, so it pays to give it some thought. Guys on the shorter side should eschew longer styles in favour of those cropped at the waist.
Sharply cut and in a deep emerald tone, the Moscow wool jacket from premium high street retailer Reiss is likely to have everyone asking “may I take your coat, sir?” (Don’t trust them.)
Available at Reiss, priced £265.
Christopher Kane Frankenstein Sweatshirt
Every designer has a signature piece and for Scottish-born, Central Saint Martins graduate Christopher Kane its his amped-up printed sweatshirts. To celebrate ten years of the Christopher Kane brand, the award-winning designer has produced a capsule collection reviving some of his most iconic prints.
Inspired by science and the sinister, the iconic Frankenstein motif which first appeared at Kane’s autumn/winter 2014 menswear show has been digitally printed on a spongy grey scuba front.
Available at Christopher Kane, priced £265.
Jones Bootmaker Made in Britain Firth Chelsea Boots
It’ll soon be time to step up to the challenge of winter so get ready with a pair of no-bullshit-boots. Of course, they don’t have to be all thick treads and rustproof hardware like you’re going on an Artic exploration.
Wipe clean leather, heavyweight elastic gusset and a sturdy Goodyear welt, like those found in Jones Bootmaker’s new Made in Britain range, is enough to make them a wet weather all-rounder.
Available at Jones Bootmaker, priced £225.
Canada Goose Woolford Jacket
Granted, outerwear needs to be practical, but it should also serve your sartorial needs. This is in large part why so many men side with Canada Goose.
Hailing from, you guessed it, the home of the seven-month ski season (and Ryan Gosling), the brand is a harmonious balance of form and function. One of the most tempting styles is the down-filled bomber style Woolford, which just dropped on Goose’s newly launched ecommerce site.
Available at Canada Goose, priced £550.
