Weekday Shaun Zip Sweatshirt
Whoever said Scandinavians were all about minimalism had clearly never seen this fantastic fleece from Stockholm-based retailer Weekday. Aside from being cosy AF, the orange shade is guaranteed to look sharp over a sweatshirt and under a denim jacket.
Yves Saint Laurent Y For Men Gift Set
Not every gift set is designed to make you smell like a 13-year-old boy at his first school disco. This one from Yves Saint Laurent offers one of the biggest fragrance launches of 2017 in both a full- and travel-sized bottle that’s perfect for your gym bag.
Superdry Longline Down Chinook Parka Jacket
If you didn’t buy a proper winter coat and now plan to stick it out until spring, we hate to break it to you, but you’re an idiot. Snap up a stylish parka from Superdry’s new ethically-sourced down range for a piece of cold-weather kit that’ll last for seasons. And seasons. And seasons. You get the idea.
Cole Haan Grandprø Running Trainers
It turns out it’s not just dad bods that are in – you should also be looking at your old man’s feet for style inspiration. This pair of trainers from the comfort maestros at Cole Haan is modelled on the kind of old-school running gear he thought he looked great in during the eighties. Apparently, he was right.
Wood Wood Out Of Office T-Shirt

Wrangler x Peter Max Retro Straight Jeans
Celebrating its 70th anniversary, US denim brand Wrangler has unveiled a collaboration with the master of the psychedelic prints, Peter Max. Based on designs he created for the brand in the 1970s, it’s as bold, colourful and acid-esque as you might imagine.
Original Penguin Textured Bomber Jacket
Sleek, smart and simple, this panelled bomber jacket from contemporary casualwear brand Original Penguin is the perfect piece to layer up with now, and then, come the warmer weather, it’ll make a neat spring jacket.
Casio Classic Watch
Whether you’re flailing around on the dancefloor or sliding down a ski slope this Christmas, you’re probably going to want to leave your ‘posh’ watch at home and opt for something a bit less precious. We reckon this cream classic from Casio, that’s as cool as it is cost-effective, is ideal.
Patagonia Long-Sleeved Logo T-Shirt
When they’re not busy battling a certain Cheeto-faced world leader (who shall remain unnamed) over protected public lands, American outdoor brand Patagonia is turning out pieces like this simple long-sleeved T-shirt. Which sort of makes its mountain motif the most punk logo to wear right now.
Pyrenex Molde Overshirt
Now and again the fashion gods smile down on us and gift we menswear mortals trends that are both wearable and practical. And so it is with padded jackets that, previously reserved for hiking in the Lake District, are now de rigueur on the streets. We’re particularly taken with this bold water-repellent and duck down-filled overshirt from 150-year-old outerwear brand Pyrenex.
Nike x Soulland Pants
Following the success of last year’s collab, Danish menswear brand Soulland has hopped into bed with Nike SB, the skateboarding arm of the sportswear giant, for a second round. FRI.day part 0.2 is packed with slogan-splashed shirts, T-shirts and jackets, plus this pair of ultra-loungey sweatpants. FRI.yay, we say.
Boohoo Man Cord Cap
Just because the weather has turned, doesn’t mean you have to ditch your baseball cap for something Sherlock Holmes might wear. Instead, pick up a cap in a winter fabric, like this cool corduroy version, which very helpfully comes in a very on-trend shade of dusty pink, from the menswear mavericks at BoohooMan.
H&M Zip Top
Now that it’s officially ffffreezing, you’re going to need to invest in layering pieces. Like, a lot of layering pieces. This zip top from high-street heroes H&M, with its high neck and ribbed cuffs, will keep you warm while helping you look cool.
The Idle Man Cotton Canvas Backpack
This cool cream backpack from etailer The Idle Man scores big for several reasons. Not only does the padded back and reinforced base belie its low price tag, but it’s also the ideal accent for all those 1970s shades of orange, brown and green that you’ll be wearing this winter.
Topman Twisted Jeans
Any guy who grew up in the 1990s will remember Levi’s twisted jeans. Sure, there’s a chance the whole thing was a cover-up for a large-scale manufacturing fault, but we’re okay with that. And thanks to Topman you get a second bite of the denim cherry with this near-perfect pair, complete with a cinch at the back.
JW Anderson x Converse High-Tops
If you’re not really the smart-shirt-and-shoes type, Christmas party season can be a real ball ache. But as if by magic, Converse has dropped one helluva collaboration with JW Anderson that includes, wait for it, glittery high-tops. Or for the wallflowers among you, there’s this all-over logoed pair.
Thom Sweeney Merino Wool Sweater
It’s happy anniversary to Thom Whiddett and Luke Sweeney, the former Savile Row apprentices who, for the last decade, have been turning out the kind of tailoring that sartorial wet dreams are made of.

Tommy Hilfiger Corporate Edge Rashell Scarf
With plenty of booze-filled nights on the horizon, we just wanted to take this opportunity to remind you to wrap it up this season. Your neck. We’re talking about your neck. And, of course, this tricolour scarf from the dons of preppy style, Tommy Hilfiger.
Your Turn T-Shirt
What is Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa smiling about? It’s the question that has perplexed generations, but it looks like streetwear brand Your Turn has the answer. Apparently, she was just feeling a bit smug that day about her almost-as-good-as-Bart-Simpson’s skating skills.
River Island Embroidered Hoodie
Florals in the spring might elicit a big fat yawn, but when it comes to winter, they continue to be one of the most interesting prints on the block. And quite frankly, we’re here for anything that elevates cosy loungewear to positively pub-worthy garb.
