Arket Technical Hopsack Topcoat
The H&M group is taking over the high street, and your wardrobe, one shop at a time. This coat from the latest member of the family, Arket, is excellent for two reasons: It’s water repellent, so it will keep you dry, plus it comes in a timeless black watch tartan.
Soulland Joseph Sweatshirt
Emo (don’t act like you don’t remember) is making a comeback if uber cool Swedish brand Soulland is anything to go by. But that doesn’t mean you have to grow a fringe to cover one eye and stock up on guyliner. Instead just wear your angsty emotions on your sleeve (or your chest) with this unbrushed fleece sweatshirt.
Superga x Harvey Nichols 2750 Trainers
With a fan base that includes Steve McQueen, Italian sneaker brand Superga isn’t exactly short of endorsements. Nonetheless, it just received another from Harvey Nichols, with the duo working together on a pair of trainers. Featuring tonal branding and raw leather edges, they’re luxe but not in the least bit flashy. Bellissima.
Matt & Nat Paxx Bag
No one said ethical had to be ugly and this handsome vegan-leather backpack from accessories brand Matt and Nat is a case in extremely stylish point. Not just coloured green, it also features a lining made from recycled plastic bottles and because it’s durable, the bag is also sustainable.
Topman Washed Black Jeans
It’s hard to top an OG, which is why Topman has gone back to basics with its Original fit jeans. Cut slightly looser (i.e. you won’t have to get a friend to help peel them off you), they’re the perfect way to nail the nineties trend when cuffed and finished off with a simple pair of trainers.
Napa by Martine Rose Tyson Fleece
One of London’s most talked about young menswear designers, Martine Rose, has hopped into bed with Italian technical outdoorsy-brand Napapijri. The resulting collection features a tonne of great oversized jackets and coats, but we’re baaarmy for this boxy cream fleece.
Boohoo Man Corduroy Backpack
You shouldn’t need us to tell you (even though we just did) that tactile fabrics are going to be everywhere from here on out. This backpack from the affordable menswear mavericks at Boohoo is an ideal way to dip a toe in the trend and get a piece of the action without putting your hands too far into your pockets.
Kingsman + Jean Shop Selvedge Denim Shirt
To mark the release of Kingsman: The Golden Circle, Mr Porter has opened its first ever physical store, selling an assortment of pieces based on the costume design for the film. As well as a focus on British heritage, the space is packed with collaborations like this flawless denim shirt by American denim brand Jean Shop.
Beams Plus Insulation Cap
A wool beanie isn’t the only way to protect your bonce from the elements. Japanese brand Beams Plus, which draws on workwear and heritage elements for its simple, wearable collections, has whipped up this insulated, waxed-cotton baseball cap. We reckon it’s a home run for autumn.
Obey Green Chinos
Green is the colour to be seen in this season, and these mossy chinos from Californian streetwear brand Obey are the perfect length, too. Wear them with sporty tube socks and a pair of Vans for extra skate styling points without needing to set foot near a half pipe.
Gosha Rubinsky Football Scarf
The tsar of nineties terrace fashion, and one of the world’s most talked about designers, Gosha Rubinsky could slap his Cyrillic name on just about anything, and it would be a must-buy. Which is exactly what this scarf is, so hop to it if you want major cool points this season.
H&M Wide Hooded Top
If you’re not dressed in shades of green this season, then you should be wearing usually-reserved-for-the-summer yellow. This buttercup-hued hoodie from H&M is not only on the money in terms of palette, but it’s also cut a little wider, which means it’s ripe for autumnal layering.
Sayers Silver Tie Clip
Despite all the statement knits and slouchy silk shirts lined up for this season, it’s still noticeably harder to stand out when the sun goes on holiday. Which makes the little details all the more important. A tie-clip is the instant upgrade your 9-5 wardrobe needs. Need more convincing? It’ll keep your tie out of your soup.
De Bonne Facture Corduroy Trousers
Who could have predicted that the world’s geography teachers had it right all along? Corduroy is set to be one of the biggest trends over the next few months, but if you can’t face going head-to-toe in a full suit, then try these olive green trousers instead.
Fred Perry x Raf Simons Long Sleeve Polo Shirt
They may call it the summer of love, but there are plenty of hookups to get excited about this autumn. Take this joint effort by British heritage brand Fred Perry and brilliant Belgian designer Raf Simons, which is enough to get hearts racing and wallets itching.
River Island Contrast Drawstring Hoodie
You could spend a lifetime learning to layer like Kanye, or you could take the sartorial shortcut and grab this clever hoodie from River Island. Until it actually gets cold enough to wear multiple sweatshirts, it features a neat insert that gives the same illusion without the bulk.
Pretty Green x John Smedley Paisley Print Jumper
Following the success of their previous outing together, Liam Gallagher’s brand Pretty Green has once again teamed up with iconic menswear label John Smedley for an encore of ace knitwear. Staying true to the latter’s ethos, every piece in the capsule collection is made in Great Britain.
Marks & Spencer Shearling Look Bomber Jacket
Chalk it up to the seventies being the trend that refuses to die, but shearling continues to be a key fabric this season. Trust M&S to hit the nail on the sartorial head, as the high street stalwart has done with this get-in-my-basket bomber jacket.
