Gucci Floral Print Slim-Fit Shirt
Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking. Just think of this short-sleeved Gucci top as a more fashionable alternative to the Hawaiian shirt. Which means you’ll make the right kind of statement, thanks to its pure cotton construction, pearlescent buttons and slim, tailored cut.
It takes a tough man to show off his delicate side.
Available at Selfridges, priced £315
Ovadia & Sons Leather Jogger Pants
Mick Jagger doesn’t have a monopoly on leather pants anymore. So if you’re inspired by his new series Vinyl, you can rock the look – and be way more comfortable than the seemingly immortal rocker – with these lambskin-lined joggers.
The trousers include a drawstring waist, angled zip pockets, horizontal seams, double-welt back pockets and cased elastic cuffs. Just watch out for leg sweat – no one said being a rock star was easy.
Available at Barneys New York, priced £480
UWL Workshop Kuniyoshi Octopus 1 Surfboard
A surfboard covered in 19th century Japanese art admittedly isn’t for everyone. Handmade in France, the Kuniyoshi Octopus 1 Surfboard is part of a limited edition series constructed for the French art gallery Boom-Art.
Individually numbered, crafted from hand-shaped polyurethane foam and coming with wall hooks for mounting, this piece is true statement-maker. Whether you hang it, or use it to hang 10.
Available at Boom-Art, priced £1,450.
Maison Francis Kurkdjian The Fragrance Wardrobe
If you still haven’t found your perfect scent – and no, your dad’s Old Spice doesn’t count – then The Fragrance Wardrobe collection from Francis Kurkdjian should help you in the search.
From fresh and floral to musky and woody, this taster selection of the master perfumer’s fragrances is guaranteed to include your new signature.
Available at Mr Porter, priced £130.
AllSaints Circuit Suede Biker Jacket
Like the version of James Dean that’s safe to take home to mum, this suede jacket from edgy British brand AllSaints is a laid-back update taken on the classic leather biker.
Intricate detailing and slate grey colouring mean that you’ll stand out among the sea of black outerwear. And you can rock it year-round thanks to the fabric, a buttery-soft suede that might make it impossible for some to keep their hands off you.
Available at AllSaints, priced £358.
Clarks Originals Trigenic Flex Trainers
A trainer-moccasin hybrid that’s as comfortable as it is functional, the original Trigenic Flex was the surprise entry on our list of 2015’s best trainers.
The line now gets a new year update made for any weather, crafted from leather and abrasion-proof rubber, which means scuffs are a thing of the past. You’d be hard-pressed to find a better transitional season shoe, which will take you seamlessly from the gym to drinks with friends.
Just make sure to dose liberally with suede protector before wearing them out in those spring showers.
Available at Zalando, priced £100.
Nomi Boxed Cold Brew Coffee
Cold brew is our new favourite way to scratch that caffeine itch. But the 12-hour brew time means we tend to spend too much time jonesing for a cup.
Hence why experts NOMI now deliver a wine box-sized serving, crafted in their Yorkshire micro-brewery, which you simply slot in your fridge and decant whenever you need an eye-opener. Very cool.
Available at nomidrinks.com, priced from £18.99.
