Converse Legend High-Tops
The Chuck Taylor, America’s most famous basketball export – after you know, basketball – has just received 30 new iterations. Celebrating the history of the sport and its influence on street style, we’re particularly fond of this sleek black ‘Legend’ pair.
JW Anderson x Uniqlo Flannel Check Shirt
Grab your bank cards and sharpen your elbows because JW Anderson’s brilliant new collection for Uniqlo has finally landed, and you’re going to want to stock up on pretty much all of it. With bold stripes and checks punctuating clever workwear and wardrobe classics, it’s like the capsule wardrobe you wished that you had.
H&M Cotton Corduroy Trousers
Another week, another perfect pair of trews on the high street. With the cropped length, straight-cut legs and v-on-trend corduroy fabric, H&M has nailed it. Wear with a chunky green jumper and foot with military boots for a look to see you through autumn.
Packer x J.Crew x Asics Tiger 1907 Collection Trainers
Quite possibly the best three-way sneaker collaboration we’ve ever seen, this team-up between New York sneaker store Packer, J Crew, and Asics has resulted in a reimagining of the latter’s Gel-Lyte III from 1990 with premium materials and a trio of colourways. Three really is the magic number.
Champion Life Reverse Weave Sweatshirt
Ahead of its centenary, US sportswear giant Champion has opened its first ever UK flagship in London’s Soho (also home to the likes of Palace). So if you’re in the capital, pop in, and if not, you can always buy the brand’s second-to-none sweatshirts online.
Vans All Weather Sk8-Hi 46 Shoes
You can bin your wellies this year because Vans has released its latest rainy day collection of cool coach jackets, perfect puffas, and jumping-in-puddle-proof trainers. As well as weather-resistant uppers, the Sk8-Hi 46 MTE comes packing a heat retention lining and snow boot traction soles to really kick Mother Nature in the… yeah.
Maison Kitsune Faux Shearling-Lined Corduroy Jacket
Not content with just a shearling collar for cosiness this season, Maison Kitsuné has kitted out this trucker jacket with the good stuff throughout. So although it won’t keep your bum warm, it’s still pretty much winter coat material.
Ex Infinitas Wrong Way Long Sleeve T-Shirt
If you thought all Australia had to offer was Fosters and Margot Robbie, prepare to be pleasantly surprised. With just one collection under its brand new belt, surf label Ex Infinitas has been picked up by stockists worldwide, which can’t get enough of pieces like this long sleeve cotton T-shirt.
Boohoo Man Plain Canvas Backpack
To go with all of that green you’re going to be wearing this season, you’re going to need a bag that’ll blend in. Happily, the bargainous bunch at Boohoo Man has come up with this canvas example for a tenner.
Topman Rust Check Harrington Jacket
Maybe it’s all the zombie b-movies from that era, but the seventies is the trend that refuses to die. But when it throws up great jackets like this rust-coloured woollen Harrington from Topman, we’re okay with it.
AVI-8 Hawker Hurricane Watch
British watch brand AVI-8 is completely obsessed with planes and so bases its designs on historical aircrafts. This one is modelled on the Hawker Hurricane, which was used by the RAF during WWII. But we really just like the way it looks.
Levi’s Unisex For Everybody Trucker Jacket
Now a mainstay in the heritage brand’s line-up, Levi’s unisex range is jam-packed with great printed T-shirt and hoodies, all with ace androgynous proportions. However, the crowning glory this season is this perfectly pared-back, sleeker-than-average trucker jacket with minimal branding.
Native Youth 3 in 1 Sedgemoor Parka Jacket
What’s so special, it’s just a parka, right? Wrong. This clever coat from Native Youth comes complete with a removable padded jacket inside. Wear either one now while it’s miserably rainy but humid as hell (outfit depending), then add ballast by pairing them together when it’s mulled wine weather.
Brooklyn Dodgers Heritage Varsity Jacket
Commemorating 60 years since the controversial move that saw the Brooklyn Dodgers relocate to California and become the LA Dodgers, New Era has produced a limited edition mini-collection of classic cap and varsity jacket, both bearing the original logo.
Cole Haan Grandpro Trainers
We have it on good authority that, light, flexible and oh-so-cushioned, shoes from Chicago’s Cole Haan are some of the comfiest things you’ll ever put on your feet. If that wasn’t enough to convince you, these black leather tennis trainers can be easily dressed up to get past even the strictest Saturday night bouncer.
Paul and Shark Green Wool Scarf
Italy’s Paul and Shark are making moves to be relevant outside of the yachting community. And we think it’s working. Alongside the sailing sweaters that the brand is so well known for, it also has a line of accessories with cool caps and stylish scarves, like this one.
Sasta Olive Worker Jacket
It’s not just Copenhagen and Stockholm that all the great Scandi design comes out of, Helsinki is up there too. As if to prove it, Zalando has started stocking Sasta, a Finnish hunting and hiking brand, which produces element-beating outerwear as suitable for the pub as it is a trek up a mountain.
Aimé Leon Dore Rugby Shirt
New York-based francophile brand Aimé Leon Dore has created gallic-inspired, sleek menswear pieces since 2014. Continuing its penchant for sharp logos and pared-back colours, we think it’s scored a try with this rugby shirt.
Zara Wide Cut Trousers
Peel off those skinnies and make like Madness with some baggy trousers. We know that the proportion might seem alarming at first, but balance them out with a pair of chunky soled shoes and you’ll never look back. Trust us; your balls will thank you for it.
River Island x The Mix ‘I Can Feel’ T-Shirt
Fresh from its hit collaboration with young designer Ashish, River Island has turned its attention to something all the more charitable. Teaming up with The Mix – a free and confidential advice service for under 25s – the collection cool printed tees is shining a spotlight on mental health, with 30 per cent of proceeds going to the charity.
Wtaps T-5 01 Cap
Inspired by military uniforms, this cap from Japanese streetwear brand Wtaps is loaded with the kind of detail that makes it worth the money: like the authentic ripstop patchwork fabric and silver head vents. If this is what the army get to wear, sign us up.
