Wardrobe running low on high-quality pieces? Short on staples that steer subtle in design but come smartly constructed in top-tier fabrics?

Then get a load of this.

To celebrate both the launch of its latest collaboration and the opening of its first standalone menswear store, we’ve teamed up with British premium brand Whistles to offer one lucky winner a whopping two-part prize.

Not only will they win a Whistles outfit to the value of £500, they’ll also receive an item of their choice from the brand’s forthcoming exclusive collaboration with Buddy, the Japanese footwear and accessories label known for its pared-back designs and top-shelf craftsmanship.

Whistles x Buddy Collection

Born of a mutual appreciation for minimalist pieces made premium, Whistles x Buddy is a limited edition 7-piece collaborative collection that takes its cue from the latter’s mantra, ‘make happy’. And mankind’s best friend: dogs.

Founded in 2012, Buddy produces built-to-last footwear and accessories that make use of the best in Japanese manufacturing, with each of its pieces intended as life-long ‘buddies’.

It’s the first UK-based collaboration for Buddy, fusing Whistles’ sharp, contemporary design with industry-leading Japanese fabrications. As well as two sleek footwear styles (white leather sneakers and grey suede trainers), the collection also features a leather coin wallet, a leather bi-fold wallet, two canvas tote bags and a roll-top backpack.

Whistles x Buddy is available online and in selected stores across the UK from 24th March. Prices start from £60.
