Brooks England Mott Weekend Bag

For a century and a half, Brooks has been solving problems. Then, how to build a bicycle seat that didn’t leave you walking funny the minute you got off it. Today, how to transport your stuff on said bike, despite what the weather might throw at you.

The answer is this weekender, which is 100 per cent waterproof thanks to its cotton-textile construction, vulcanised rubber handles and taped zipper.

It’s also voluminous enough to carry a change of clothes (handy after a high summer commute) and stylish enough to stop you looking like a bike messenger.

Available at Brooks England, priced approximately £295 (€370).

MISBHV 70s Trench Coat

Every man needs a trench coat when the weather’s unpredictable. But the trick is finding one that every other man isn’t wearing.

Polish brand MISBHV specialises in classics, with a twist. So this trench comes with all the expected mod cons – it’s lightweight, waterproof, in a mid-thigh cut that makes your body seem longer – but is also emblazoned with Bowie-inspired patches to the chest and back. Which means you’ll definitely stand out in the trench-clad crowd.

Available at MISBHV, priced approximately £164 (€225).
