Ted Baker Zipped Polo Shirt
Ted Baker’s new season collection is full of all manner of things that you’ll want to layer up in: patterned T-shirts, brilliant knits, and handsome coats. But while there is even the slightest glimmer of hope that we’re getting an Indian summer we’ll be in this seventies-esque knitted polo.
Alpha Industries x Nasa Sweatshirt
US military supplier Alpha Industries is so well known for its flight references, the brand’s bombers should come with a complimentary bag of peanuts. This season the design team is taking the whole airborne thing to new heights by collaborating with NASA on a line of accessories. Bank account, we have a problem.
Topman Navy Pleat Tapered Trousers
It may be time to concede that mankle season is drawing to a close, but that doesn’t mean hemlines have to head south for the winter. Cut to the perfect length – ideal for showing off a well-socked ankle – these tapered trousers from Topman are waiting in the wings to become your new go-to when jeans just won’t cut it.
Nike Air Max 95 Essential
Big, bulky, bouncy – three adjectives to look out for when shopping for trainers this season. Which basically means hunting through old school pictures for inspiration and trying to dig out your old Air Max. Failing that Nike has made one of the original (and best) models available once more. It’s as if they knew.
Lacoste Fine Corduroy Shirt
You don’t need us to tell you that texture is key for autumn/winter, nor that corduroy is set to be one of your sartorial five a day. But while we have you, it is, and it will, so snap up this ace shirt from Lacoste and feel smug that you’re ahead of the game.
Percival Blanket Outershirt
Maker of modern menswear classics Percival has just dropped one hell of a great autumn loot on site. Alongside Japanese printed shirts and embroidered T-shirt, the British brand has created a warm waffle outershirt that’s for, you guessed it, layering.
Jean-Michel Basquiat X Browns T-Shirt
To coincide with the opening of a retrospective at London’s Barbican Centre, brilliant boutique Brown’s is paying homage to Jean-Michel Basquiat with a series of T-shirts, trainers, and hoodies printed with the artist’s work. Created in partnership with New York streetwear brand Rome Pays Off, the collection is a whole lot cheaper than a painting.
Ralph Lauren Stadium Cap
At first glance, Ralph Lauren’s re-issued 1992 Stadium Polo Collection looks like a perfect way to celebrate one of the brand’s most iconic moments. But dig deeper into the story and you’ll discover that it was originally a re-issue of the kits worn by US athletes in the 1920s and ’30s, making this one a re-re-issue. Either way, the heavily logoed pieces are sure to become collector’s items for a second (third?) time.
Gymphlex Terry Hoodie
Hundred-year-old sports brand Gymphlex may have started life in Leicester, but it looked a little further east for its latest ‘Made In Japan’ collection. The range of stripped-back sweats, hoodies, and shirts are all incredibly wearable. And because they’re manufactured from premium fabrics by some of Japan’s best manufacturers, you’ll be wearing them for far longer than a season.
Lock & Co. Hatters x Harris Tweed Dover Watch Cap
A beanie isn’t the only way to keep your bonce warm this season. Heritage milliner Lock & Co has got together with expert tweed manufacturer Harris Tweed, resulting in this Dover Cap inspired by hats traditionally worn by fishermen.
J.Crew Eisenhower Felted Wool Jacket
Inspired by traditional workwear and old military uniforms, J Crew’s diffusion line Wallace & Barnes is jam-packed full of simple and easy everyday essentials. This water-resistant merino wool jacket works well on its own but is also neat enough to be layered under a coat when temperatures plummet to testicle shrinking levels (that’s the technical term).
Hilfiger Denim Shirt
A throwback to the same decade that gave us tinted sunglasses and short sleeves over long ones, it’s a wonder this relaxed-fit shirt by Hilfiger Denim looks good at all. But it does, especially when worn over a white tee and paired with dark denim.
Asics x Beams Long Sleeved Tee
Japanese retailer Beams has hopped into bed with fellow countrymen Asics on a collection inspired by Ryan Gosling’s outerwear of choice: the Souvenir jacket. Alongside embroidered suede Gel Lyte sneakers and a plush velour hoodie is this long-sleeved tee. Well if it’s good enough for the Gos…
Lanvin Low Top Trainers
If you’re the kind of shopper who has short arms and long pockets, the price tag on Lanvin’s ultra-sleek sneakers is probably enough to make a little bit of wee come out. But think about it: not only are they devilishly handsome, they’re also black, so you’ll save money on sneaker wipes, making them practically a bargain.
Stance Juicy Socks
Mo money, mo problems? Spend some of it by pledging your allegiance to the East Coast with another excellent pair of socks from Stance. They come in two sizes so should fit your feet whether they’re biggie, or smalls (our heartfelt apologies).
North Face Vault Backpack
Proof that you don’t need a payday loan to get in on the retro sportswear action, this technical backpack by outdoor brand The North Face sits perfectly at the intersection between nineties and normcore.
BoohooMan Denim Coach Jacket
Blame the reliably unreliable weather, but we are currently obsessed with any jacket that can also be layered under a cosy coat. This neat coach style from the wallet-friendly wardrobe warriors at BoohooMan, which has just expanded its denim line, is a prime example.
Fila Tracksuit Top
Referencing its own extensive archive, Italian sportswear brand Fila has given Urban Outfitters the exclusive rights to some of its punchiest products. It goes without saying that this achingly cool track top is far too nice to do any sort of sport in.
River Island x Ashish Sweatshirt
River Island’s ongoing Design Forum project is one of the highlights of the menswear calendar. This season the high street store has teamed up with Indian-born, British designer Ashish on a 15-piece gender-neutral collection. Our favourite? This fridge magnet sweatshirt, which looks good enough to eat.
H&M X The Weeknd Top
David Beckham is a tough name to follow, but H&M’s new celeb mate
The Weeknd seems to be doing alright as far as we can see. The Canadian crooner’s second sporty collection for the Swedish high street giant features slogan tees, sweatshirts, and stadium jackets that are just about as silky as his voice.
A.P.C Jacquard-Knit Wool Sweater
Knitted from Scottish Geelong wool – considered the most exclusive lambswool in the world – this super-soft sweater by A.P.C. would look brilliant with a pair of camel wool trousers and under a camel coat. Just remember to finish with black shoes (before people think you’re an actual camel).
