Stutterheim Slussen Coach Jacket
Thanks to names like Swedish outerwear label Stutterheim, there’s no longer a decision to be made between staying dry and looking good. The fisherman-inspired brand, which has been turning out technically innovative yet stylishly sound rainwear since 2010, has just added three new styles to its line-up of rubberised coats.
The Slussen coach jacket, made from waterproof bonded cotton, features taped seams and can be combined with a Quilted Liner Vest for all the elements of the sea and city.
Available at Stutterheim, priced £315.
Ron Dorff 747 Underwear Kit
Underwear is the first thing you put on each morning and the last thing you take off at night and therefore deserves to be taken seriously. If what you currently have lurking in the skivvy drawer resembles a series of saggy, discoloured sausage skins, it’s time to rethink.
Start afresh with Swedish label Ron Dorff’s 747 underwear kit, which covers all the bases with a week’s worth of boxer briefs, boxer shorts or Y-front briefs in black, white and heather grey, all in a neat package (excuse the pun.)
Available at Ron Dorff, priced £175.
NikeLab x Riccardo Tisci Printed T-Shirt
Nike is said to spend millions every day on so-called ‘hype-creation’. We’re not quite sure what that means, but we assume it has something to do with the sports giant’s tie-up with Riccardo Tisci.
Probably the closest thing we’re going to get to Givenchy gym kit anytime soon, the pair’s second outing is made up of flowers from Oregon (the home state of Nike) Taranto, Italy (where Tisci was born) and Rio (host of the 2016 Olympics).
Available at Nike, priced £60.
Pepe Jeans Grey Denim Jacket
The traditional denim jacket is a perennial favourite so if you want something that’s less staple more statement you’ll have to leave blue behind and opt for varying washes and styles.
As the name suggests, London-born Pepe Jeans is a doyen in the field of denim. Side with its faded grey iteration with concealed buttons and rolled tab sleeves for a take that’s modern and modish in equal parts.
Available at Pepe Jeans, priced £130.
Tiger Of Sweden Floral Jacquard Trousers
It’s not long now until the world will have completed another orbit, meaning party season will soon be upon us quicker than you can say cummerbund.
Stand out from a sea of solids with a pair of patterned trousers, like this example from Tiger Of Sweden. The subtle floral jacquard is enough to make a statement, without leaving you looking like wallpaper.
Available at Tiger Of Sweden, priced £349.
Boohoo Man Short Sleeve Polo
We’re in the midst of a pink revolution. All the blokes we know are at it – Martin (Margiela), Marc (Jacobs), Paul and Joe, all of them. Most of them have shown the manliest way to think pink this season is to go after washed-out, dusty, almost neutral tones.
Take Boohoo’s example as guidance. Minimal and scandi-inspired, the e-tailer has applied the shade subtly to a classic polo shirt. If you’re looking for something to wear it with, may we suggest confidence.
Available at Boohoo Man, priced £8.
River Island Washed Badge Denim Shirt
If this season’s biggest denim trend has taught us anything, it’s that old is the new, new. Aggressively slashed jeans have been the big hitters of recent months, and this new distressed way of getting dressed looks set to continue.
Not a fan of cold knees? Take the trend up top with a shirt that’s expertly ripped, patched, or bleached. Like River Island’s rugged punk-inspired option.
Available at River Island, priced £35.
Champion Reverse Weave All Over Print Joggers
Heritage US sports firm Champion has a long and storied history. Aside from producing the kits for Wigan Athletic in 2008 (as great as that was) the brand invented and patented the unique reverse weave knitting process it has used since 1952.
Champion is proud of its name and its heritage, so much so that it has plastered its iconic logo all over pair of ribbed cuffs joggers and matching sweatshirt.
Available at Style Creep, priced £69.
Comme des Garçons Homme Camouflage Printed Tote
Some trends refuse to die, like camouflage. Despite being around for countless season, it’s not about to wave the white flag.
Not that we’re complaining, mind. Especially when the charge is being led by Rei Kawakubo at Comme des Garçons. The brand’s autumn/winter 2016 collection is adrift with armed references, like its all-over print tote bag.
Available at End, priced £189.
Levi’s Worker Slim Fit Washed Corduroy Shirt
Corduroy is cool again, and it’s easy to see why. The once nerdy fabric has been lifted of every stereotype and is now being celebrated for its sixties sex appeal (never thought you’d read ‘corduroy’ and ‘sex appeal’ in the same sentence, did you?)
Even denim experts Levi’s has put its bread-and-butter aside to work wales into a slim fit, textured worker shirt, complete with that all-American red tab.
Available at House of Fraser, priced £70.
