The Cords & Co x Alpha Industries Bomber
For the man who likes his classics with an on-trend edge (and that’s all of us, right?) Stockholm brand The Cords & Co and Alpha Industries have found a way to marry the two by deploying the material of the moment, corduroy, on the iconic MA-1 Fighter Pilot Jacket.
Converse 1970s Chuck Taylor All Star Canvas Sneakers
Game-changing sneakers don’t come around very often, but the Chuck Taylor All Star is one model to which the term can truly be applied. Celebrating almost half a century in the footwear hall of fame, Converse has reworked the 1970s basketball style with heavy-grade off-white canvas uppers, cushioned footbeds and vulcanised soles.
Triumph & Disaster Logic Toning Lotion
Gone are the days when most blokes would only use a moisturiser if it came in a bottle shaped like a spanner. The world (and our mugs) have moved on, leading modern-day apothecary and skincare foundry Triumph & Disaster to launch a unisex toning lotion that uses a natural formula to clear and tone without stripping or dehydrating the skin.
French Connection Lakra Ski Knit Jogger
Attempting to dress for the slopes can quickly send your style credentials downhill, which is why many opt for après-ski (AKA ‘just meet me in the bar after’). These super-soft, stretchy joggers from French Connection will keep your look on-piste in the lodge or on lazy weekends at home.
Burton Burgundy Suede Baseball Cap
Baseball caps have long been categorised as an exclusively summer accessory, but they can also be used to add some texture to an outfit in the colder months. Take this example from high-street hero Burton, which is cut from soft-touch suedette in a seasonally-appropriate shade of burgundy.
Reiss Mosten Striped Cotton Jumper
The original Breton top had 21 stripes to mark every victory Napoleon had over the British. Although Reiss’ stylish crew neck jumper features significantly more, it still nods to the naval staple and so pairs perfectly with dark chinos or jeans. Just stop short of boat shoes to avoid going overboard.
New Look Black Shearling Aviator Jacket
Whether on the ground below or in the skies above, it’s hard to escape the charms of military style. Originally developed in 1917 to keep pilots warm when flying in open aircrafts, these days a leather aviator jacket is just as good for channelling ‘Rebel Without A Cockpit’ vibes.
Topman Black And White Blanket Scarf
It’s just a scarf, what could go wrong? Well just ask Harry Potter (or any man who’s ever uttered the word “snood”). To avoid knotting yourself a sartorial noose, stick to neutral colours and use details like subtle flecks and fringing to stand out.
Philips Star Wars Special Edition Wet & Dry Shaver
Apply some Force to your grooming routine and achieve the best shave this side of the galaxy with Philips’ new series of Star Wars-themed wet and dry shavers. Launched to mark the upcoming release of The Last Jedi, it’s the closest cut you’ll get without risking a limb with a lightsaber.

H&M Skinny Trashed Jeans
The jeans of the last few seasons have all been about hanging together by a thread. But knee slashes aren’t the only way to destroy your denim. Case in point: This handsome pair by H&M, which, as well being picked apart, have been given the Jackson Pollock treatment with paint splatters.
Sneakers ER Luxury Calf Leather Dopp Bag Kit
Ever wondered how sneakerheads keep their white kicks box fresh? Aside from checking in for a restorative stay at Sneakers ER’s trainer surgery (seriously, it’s a thing), they always have the essentials to hand, which have helpfully been compiled into this soft calf leather dopp bag.
Venroy Knitted Long-Sleeved Polo
Having a few well-fitting polo shirts hanging in your wardrobe is an easy way to open up your options when getting dressed in the morning. For business-casual offices, layer a long-sleeved version like this one from Australian leisurewear label Venroy under a suit or put it to work on the weekends to dress up a pair of jeans.
R.E.M. x Paul Smith Navy Canvas Tote Bag
It’s no understatement to say the world would be a much less stylish place had Sir Paul Smith pursued his dream of being a cyclist or ended up in a band like R.E.M, which the British designer has collaborated with on a capsule collection of pieces screen-printed with lyrics from the rock group’s landmark 1992 album, Automatic for the People.
Nicce Fishtail Parka
The parka coat received its stamp of approval from the military long before entering civilian life, making it the idea choice for doing battle against harsh weather conditions. Nicce’s all-black example features a detachable faux fur hood for added insulation, and branded zip pulls for a flight jacket touch.
Adidas Consortium x Hanon New York Runners
It’s often said there are only two seasons in Scotland: June and Winter. Taking inspiration from the moody Highland skies, Aberdeen-based retailer Hanon has teamed up with Adidas Consortium to rework the 1980s New York runner with a fade pattern applied to the woven jacquard uppers and webbed midsole.
Jigsaw Garment Dye Oxford Button Down Shirt
The classic Oxford shirt is a year-round staple that should be mandatory to own by law. However, to inject some much-needed personality into winter looks, restock your stash with lesser used shades like this amber version, woven and garment dyed in Portugal for a worn, lived-in look.
Fish Platinum Fish Fibre
Founded in a rundown sex shop in 1987, award-winning barbershop Fish has spent the last 30 years trimming the tresses of London’s best-dressed men. To celebrate its anniversary, the brand has added a new super-matte styling fibre to its range of in-house products, offering a firm, pliable hold without the, err, sticky ending.
