Reiss Benjamin Slim-Fit Black Jeans
Unless you live your life in trousers, a solid pair of black jeans will be one of the most well-worn staples in your wardrobe. This example from Reiss is cut in the premium high street chain’s slimmest ‘Razor’ shape and woven from cotton-stretch fabric for long-lasting, comfortable wear.
Available at Reiss, priced £95.
Stella McCartney Shirt
Stella McCartney cut her teeth as an apprentice under esteemed Savile Row tailor Edward Sexton, so it makes sense that the designer’s first menswear collection would show off her exceptional tailoring skills. This precision-cut cotton-piqué shirt in sand is finished with front flap pockets and a discreet button-down collar.
Available at Mr Porter, priced £345.
A Bathing Ape 1st Camo Ape Sta Low
Looking for a way to nod to the military trend without going full Action Man? Bape’s Ape Sta Low sees the brand’s house camo print applied to the uppers of a standard skater shoe. The rubber shell toe, vulcanised rubber sole and branded heel tab are all still present, but the result feels like a fresh twist on a classic footwear genre.
Available at End, priced £209.
M&S Collection Lightweight Active Sweatshirt
Remove the temptation to bail on fitness resolutions when the cold bites by stocking up on pieces from Marks & Spencer’s new activewear range. In particular, the high street stalwart’s lightweight zip-neck sweater is insulating enough to keep you doing squats in the snow until March, while a zip pocket on the back keeps your fitness tracker and keys safe. So there really is no excuse.
Available at Marks & Spencer, priced £25.
Zara Double-Sided Coat
Following years in the style hinterland, shearling style coats have made a comeback. This double-faced coat, complete with fleece lining for added warmth, comes in a rich tobacco shade that pairs perfectly with dark denim or black trousers. Just avoid layering a turtleneck under or you might just get mistaken for Trotter’s Independent Trading’s latest recruit.
Available at Zara, priced £119.
Old Harry Burgundy Beanie
Knitwear specialist Old Harry was founded on England’s Jurassic coast and named after an infamous local pirate who, legend has it, hid his bounties in Poole’s infamous network of caves. This little treasure is easier to find and the sailor-inspired detailing and vintage feel make it a timeless winter staple.
Available at Old Harry, priced £25.
