Topman Red Flannel Shirt
If you want to stand a chance of anyone jumping your bones this season, steer well clear of novelty Christmas jumpers. Instead, channel your inner St Nick in this cosy flannel shirt from menswear behemoth Topman. No, it doesn’t give you a license to get hotties to sit on your lap, and equally no, that’s not why it’s called Lapland.
Dr. Martens x Engineered Garments Monkey Boot
Anglo-American relations could be on the up if this collaboration between New York-based Engineered Garments and British stompy shoemaker Dr. Martens is anything to go by. Reworking the retro Monkey Boot, the pair has added contrasting textures and additional eyelets, all presented in a UK/USA cotton bag.
Idle Man Slim Prince Of Wales Wool Suit Trousers
Great news for anyone starting a new job in 2018, The Idle Man has relaunched its tailoring offering, and very smart it is too. The menswear e-tailer has come up with a four-strong contemporary collection of slim-fitting suits made from (sweat-patch-free) breathable fabrics in classic colours.
Miansai Fusion Pendant Necklace
Miami-based accessories house Miansai has built a name for itself turning out the kind of jewellery blokes actually want to wear. Case in very stylish point: this pendant necklace, which pulls on the latest trend for mixing metals.
Sunspel Shetland Wool Sweater
Made in bonnie Scotland on a traditional circular knitting machine that ensures a smooth construction (trust us, a good thing), we’re barmy for this army green jumper from Sunspel, the brilliant brand that brought us boxers.
Carhartt WIP x Underground Resistance Simple Pant
Impossibly cool workwear brand Carhartt WIP has teamed up with Detroit-techno-collective-cum-political-activists Underground Resistance for a collection of everyday essentials. Made up of a parka, beanie, hoodie and these awesome heavy-duty chinos, it’s everything you need to withstand a brutal Michigan winter.
Vintage Artwork Guinness Cans
It’s Christmas, so accessorise your look with a glass of something cold. Happily, Guinness is celebrating what would have been the 120th birthday of John Gilroy – the artist who helped to shape the brand’s identity – with a run of limited-edition cans splashed with his work. And because it’s the season of goodwill, we reckon you can have tou-cans.
Ami x End Heart Logo Hoodie
Hooking up with young Parisian label Ami, the team at forward-thinking menswear retailer End has crafted an exclusive collection of oh-so-soft hoodies complete with an embroidered heart logo and subtle tonal branding on the back. Très chic, we say.
Freedom to Exist Watch
The creative director of ultra-swanky members’ club Soho House and Marks & Spencer’s furniture chief have joined forces to produce a series of sleek, unbranded watches that have more than a dash of Scandinavian style about them. And at just £155, the price is pretty minimal, too.
Stone Island Brushed Cotton Shirt
Once the preserve of football fans yelling obscenities in the terraces, Italian technical brand Stone Island has undergone a resurgence of late, and we’re pretty happy about it because it whips up cool coats and expertly aged shirts like this could-be-vintage brushed cotton example.
Eastpack Killington Backpack
Beginning life as a supplier of tough-as-nails backpacks and duffle bags to the military, US brand Eastpak is embracing its heritage this season by making use of the very on-trend army green and camo print. If enlisting looks this good, where do we sign up?
Inspired by its impressive nineties archive, Adidas has created its chunkiest silhouette yet. The all-new Prophere lifestyle runner is no wallflower – packed with futuristic details like a textured sculpted sole and pops of neon in the fabric.
H&M Merino Wool Cardigan
Dressing like your old geography teacher doesn’t begin and end with corduroy. To properly shake those sartorial tectonic plates you’re going to need a cardigan like this merino wool version from H&M. And if you want to get really ballsy, try tucking it into your trousers.
River Island Faux Fur Trim Hooded Parka
If most of the time you live on a diet of staple navies, blacks and greys, make this the season to add some mustard into the mix. This parka from River Island, which is finished with a faux fur trim hood, looks good enough to eat from where we’re sitting.
Weekday End Leather Gloves
With spring just around the corner, you might have to wait until next year to get the most out of these gloves. But thanks to their simple design and timeless black goat leather body, they’ll look just as good then and every winter after.
Belstaff Steadway Stretch-Cotton Shirt
With its neat nods to classic military style, it’s safe to say heritage outfitter Belstaff has nailed it with this shirt. In addition to being spliced with tonal topstitching and finished with a logo print patch on the sleeve, the jaunty pocket is just slanted enough to make you wonder whether you’ve knocked back too many mulled wines.
Oliver J Woods Abyssinian Clay
With a client list that includes Jude Law, Brad Pitt and Daniel Craig, you can trust your locks are in well-trained hands with Oliver J Woods. The hairstylist to the stars has just released his own grooming line, which includes this matte clay styling product.
