H&M Cotton Twill Parka
If G.I. Joe left the forces and moved to Manchester in the 1990s to form an indie band he would probably buy this jacket. And while there is no better endorsement than that, it’s also a great way to nail the ubiquitous camouflage trend in one fell swoop.
Available at H&M, priced £49.99.
River Island White Stripe Short-Sleeved Shirt
Vertical stripes are going to be everywhere next season, so get a head start while eeking out the rest of this summer in River Island’s casual shirt. Wear it poolside now and then make it the filling in a layering sandwich (over a skater T-shirt and under a cardigan) when it starts to get chillier.
Available at River Island, priced £25.
Cottweiler Contrast-Panel Track Jacket
London-based brand Cottweiller has been smashing the sports luxe scene since bursting onto it in 2012. Its design-led clothing is always the right side of interesting and we reckon this stupidly cool track top has just enough Saved By The Bell vibes to make it a winner.
Available at Matches Fashion, priced £406.
Soulland New Sweater
Proving that Scandinavian style doesn’t just mean various shades of white, Danish brand Soulland is famed for dousing its clean-lined garments with abstract prints. Traditionally making use of a more muted colour palette, this jumper highlights a new direction – and it’s one that’ll make sure you’re centre of attention in the pub.
Available at Soulland, priced £219.
Saturdays NYC Russell Cotton-Corduroy Baseball Cap
US surf brand Saturdays NYC might be based on the east coast, but its chilled weekend separates have all the relaxed cool of an LA skatepark. With a hardwearing fabric in a light shade, this corduroy cap is perfect for wearing as summer fades into autumn, even if the only beach you land on is Bognor.
Available at Mr Porter, priced £50.
Vans Anaheim Factory Authentic 44 DX
Paying tribute to the very first Vans factory in California, the Anaheim pack borrows details from the OG shoe like cotton laces, a heavier canvas and retro checkerboard pattern. Thankfully though, it also comes complete with the modern, ultra-cushioned soles.
Available at Vans, priced £55.
Levi’s Altered 511 Slim-Fit Jeans

Fila Tommy Sweatshirt
Fila’s re-found popularity off the back of the nineties sportswear revival sees absolutely no sign of letting up. Stepping away from its traditional red, white and blue palette, this sweatshirt, in delicious marzipan, is a less obvious take on the South Korean sportswear brand’s signature style.
Available at Urban Outfitters, priced £60.
Primark Black Borg Jacket
Thanks to its borg collar design, this elevated version of the classic bomber jacket gives a subtle nod to the black fur capes of the Night’s Watchmen – and who doesn’t want to look just the teeniest bit like John Snow? – without going full GoT cosplay.
Available at Primark, priced £19.
A.P.C. Darwin Bracelet
Parisian label A.P.C. manages to inject its personal brand of left-bank cool into everything it does. This simple bracelet is no exception and makes for an easy way to add a touch of je ne sais quoi accessorising to a pared-back look.
Available at End Clothing, priced £85.
Carhartt WIP Phil Rucksack
Workwear brand Carhartt considers function just as much as it does form, which means that with a padded laptop pocket inside, you can probably skate with this rucksack on your back and your laptop will remain unscathed. Probably.
Available at Zalando, priced £64.99.
Fred Perry Reissues Tipped Cardigan

Available at Fred Perry, priced £145.
Native Youth Arni Jogging Bottoms

Available at Pull and Bear, priced £9.99.
