Wrangler Wild Wash Vintage Design T-Shirt
Rihanna’s got wild thoughts and so have we, except ours are about this vintage design T-shirt from denim brand Wrangler and we’re guessing hers, well, aren’t. Don’t think we’ll be using this brand of detergent mind, because it comes in an (albeit very stylish) off-white shade.
Available at Wrangler, priced £25.
River Island Mid Blue Fade Ripped Jimmy Slim Tapered Jeans
If you’re still clinging on to your skinnies and not quite ready to jump into the world of loose-fitting jeans, this slim pair is a pretty good compromise. Tapered rather than baggy, their nineties-style rips suggest you’ve fallen off your fair share of skateboards, even if the words ‘180-degree flip’ makes you think of pancakes, not half pipes.
Available at River Island, priced £45.
Primark Camo Backpack
We’ll still be referring to ubiquitous camouflage as a trend even in AW37, so you may as well stock up now. With this ultralight rucksack, you can get a piece of the action without having to delve too deep into your pockets.
Available at Primark, priced £12.
H&M Nylon Bomber Jacket
Light enough to wear during summer nights, this camel-coloured bomber will still be your best friend come autumn when you can layer it over scholarly looking wine- and forest-coloured jumpers. Buy now, give yourself a huge pat on the back later.
Available at H&M, priced £39.99.
RNLI x Finisterre T-Shirt
British surf brand Finisterre has joined forces with the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) – one of the oldest life-saving charities in the world – on a limited edition collection, and we’re really into it. Designed for coastal adventures, the collection contains fisherman knits, beanies and waterproof jackets, but we have our eyes on this pocket T-shirt. Made from 100 per cent organic cotton, it comes complete with a tasteful RNLI + Finisterre patch and 10% of all sales will be donated to the charity. Doing good never looked so good.
Available at Finisterre, priced £30.
Timex MK1 Aluminium Watch
Exclusive to End Clothing, this Timex watch is a reinterpretation of the brand’s 1982 Mil-W-46374B, which was originally designed with a bid for the US Government’s business in mind. Slimmed down and made sleeker, it retains the original military aesthetic but doesn’t look like something only GI Joe would wear.
Available at End, priced £69.
G-Star Raw Motac 3D Slim Jeans
G-Star Raw has gone ultra-ergonomic for its latest launch. This heavily engineered pair of jeans may look achingly cool (and they are) but they’re also incredibly practical. Constructed for movement, the 3D denim innovation features clever ribbed panels on the calf and at the back of the knee. Happy lunging, lads.
Available at G-Star Raw, priced £170.

New to Harvey Nichols’ updated and upscaled menswear department, this Leeds-based brand from the menswear independent of the same name is titled after the first Japanese gang to adopt elements of preppy Ivy League style.

Available at Harvey Nichols, priced £40.

A backpack for the ages, this oh-so-sleek number from Swedish bag brand Sandqvist will be in your wardrobe for until way after the Scandi trend has died a death. Durable, timeless and incredibly practical, it has a laptop sleeve and inner pockets, so you won’t lose your car keys.
Available at Sandqvist, priced £175.

Mr Porter continues apace with its exclusive line from the brilliant Beams Plus, the in-house menswear line from Japanese cool AF shop, Beams. This expertly made shirt was crafted using traditional print-blocking techniques. Get it for what’s left of the summer, and you’ll be bringing it out for years to come.
Available at Mr Porter, priced £85.
Topman Black Large Check Joggers
Sweatpants don’t have to be prison-yard chic; a pair of elevated joggers can look just as smart as a pair of chinos, but are a hell of a lot more comfortable. Monochrome and plaid for AW17, this pair from Topman checks a lot of boxes.
Available at Topman, priced £35.
Tommy Jeans Nineties Sweatshirt
Some key bits of information that you really ought to be aware of: a) the nineties trend is refusing to die and b) Tommy Hilfiger is cool again. All of that renders this sweatshirt pretty much unavoidable.

Reiss Dover Zip-Front Knitted Jacket

The ultimate in-between-seasons style, wear it now over a T-shirt and then layer it underneath a thicker coat come the colder months.
Available at Number Six, priced £250.
