Rag & Bone Selvedge Denim Jacket
The denim jacket is a stateside icon that is arguably never not in style. Cheers, then, to Rag & Bone for this classic, dark blue selvedge example. The crisp edges and rigid shape give it a very Tom Ford-in-Texas Nocturnal Animals feel. And if it’s good enough for Tom, it’s good enough for us.
Available at Mr Porter, priced £220.
Vans x Our Legacy Long Sleeved T-Shirt
When the ultimate Americana skatewear brand meets one of Sweden’s finest exports, the result is a collection that fuses Californian cool with refined Scandinavian touches. This marshmallow-hued long-sleeved design by Vans and Our Legacy gives a sleek nod to the printed tee trend without needing to plaster yourself in Bieber merch.
Available at End Clothing, priced £100.
Palladium Pampa Hi L’Originale
A 70th anniversary is traditionally known as the Platinum, but Palladium is celebrating its landmark birthday with a distinctly non-metal collection. Diving into the archives, the footwear brand has updated original styles to create the Pampa Hi L’Originale as a tribute to its roots. Originally worn by the French Foreign Legion and inspired by parachute drops, these nude stompers will add some je ne sais quoi to your casualwear.
Available at Palladium, priced £55.
Topman Grey Textured Smart Coach Jacket
Overshirts and bombers are yet again tipped to be hot property this summer, so props to Topman for fusing the two in this neat grey coach jacket. The classic collar and textured fabric give it a formal edge, while the snap fastening and nipped-in hem add an athleisure touch.
Available at Topman, priced £65.
Gap The Archive Re-Issue Easy Fit Jeans
The 1990s gave us a lot to be thankful for, not least a solid selection of denim. Still hunting for the perfect pair of Gallagher jeans? Gap has got you covered – as part of a whole collection of re-issued pieces from the decade; these are identical to the originals. Just be sure to ditch the snapback.
Available at Gap, priced £49.95.
River Island Olive Green Mesh Panel Polo
If the vibrancy of Pantone’s colour of the year is too much for you, murky olives and khakis are the best alternatives. Combining a military colourway with breathable woven and mesh fabrics, this polo shirt is a cool way to enlist one of menswear’s longest serving trends without looking too try-hard.
Available at River Island, priced £22.
Rains x Ally Capellino Backpack
For decades Ally Capellino has been making some of the most stylish minimal leather goods while Danish brand Rains perfected its sleek take on functional outerwear. Now the two have come together, resulting in a technical backpack, which boasts sealed seams and waterproof zips and a strictly Scandi feel.
Available at End Clothing, priced £75.
Shore Leave Colour Block Stripe Jumper
Days are getting longer and the sky is (sometimes) getting bluer, so follow suit and inject some colour into your wardrobe rotation. This 1990s-style jumper from Urban Outfitters’ in-house brand Shore Leave features a bold colour-block construction in a relaxed fit for a primary-coloured confection that doesn’t look like it belongs on a children’s TV show.
Available at Urban Outfitters, priced £55.
Gosha Rubchinskiy x Fila Logo T-shirt
The Russian’s are invading – well, at least, your wardrobe. Hypebeast favourite Gosha Rubchinskiy has teamed up with Fila for a cool Cyrillic take on the Italian sportswear label’s iconic cotton T-shirt. That’s one way to dip your toes into Russian waters without zip-back macs and fur brogues.
Available at Farfetch, priced £50.
Zara Check Trousers
Checked tailoring is set to be a huge trend this summer, but investing in patterned formalwear can be a risky move for the style newbie. A much easier entry is these trousers from Zara, which have a premium feel without the matching price tag. Pair with a crisp white T-shirt, bomber and sneakers for a winning weekend look.
Available at Zara, priced £29.99.
