Lou Dalton x Farnol Work Jacket
Few things get menswear pulses racing like a fash-pack cross-pollination. Mainly because they’re usually a chance to get a hold of some top-quality items – like this cotton-blend work shacket by British designer Lou Dalton and sustainable clothing brand Farnol – for a bit of a steal.
Louis Abel Altair Scratched Silver Ring
Jewellery? For men? Well, of course – we can’t be letting women have all the fun. The key is to skew classy and simple, like with pieces from new unisex jewellery brand Louis Abel. This handcrafted in Sweden ring has an all-over scratched effect, so it’ll look rugged on even the daintiest, well-manicured of man hands.
Kronaby Apex Contactless Watch
Not all smartwatches have to look like a G-Shock got it on with a nineties mobile phone. Take Kronaby: the Swedish brand turns out sleek chronographs finished with straps packing Barclaycard’s contactless payment technology. We’d recommend the Apex model, which also lets you play music and take a picture on your cameraphone remotely.
ASOS Design Tan Leather Sandals
The Roman sandal has had more comebacks than Caesar had backstabbers, so it’s no surprise that it’s attempting another this summer. Always first to trending styles, ASOS has produced quite a tidy minimalist pair that cuts down on all the unnecessary straps. Made from real leather, they also come in at a relative snip.
Acqua Di Parma Cipresso di Toscana Eau De Toilette
The latest fragrance from Acqua Di Parma, this Selfridges exclusive is a fresh take on the brand’s signature Blu Mediterraneo scent. It smells like walking through the woods of Tuscany – all breezy star anise and succulent orange trees – presumably before lightly strumming a lyre and diving head first into a vat of wine and mozzarella.
Christopher Raeburn x Umbro Remix Tee
No longer good just for kickabout kit, British sportswear brand Umbro is now one of the hottest properties in fashion. Which of course means pairing up with other hot properties like designer Christopher Raeburn on futuristic, spliced-up capsule collections that remember to reference the past while simultaneously setting out a path for the future.
Nicce Storming Yellow Bum Bag
Bum bag, fanny pack, belly pouch. Whatever you call them, waist-slung luggage is officially back in time for festival season. Affordable streetwear brand Nicce has just released a selection in its summer accessories drop, and the results are bold without being too showy. We’re particularly fond of this construction site yellow example for its clean branding and sparkling simplicity.
Ted Baker 30th Anniversary Sweater
You know what they say about the guy who reinvented the wheel? Neither do we, but we’re guessing it didn’t end well. So props to Ted Baker which, to celebrate its 30th anniversary, has delved into the archive to reissue a line-up of sweats, T-shirts and hoodies produced by a historic mill in Portugal first used by the brand three decades ago.
Only & Sons Onswayne Shirt
Getting in on the Cuban collar trend doesn’t have to mean shelling out half your pay packet on a designer version. This take from Danish brand Only & Sons is suitably breezy with deckchair-like stripes packaged in a loose but still neatly-cut fit.
Carhartt WIP Sid Pant
With the height of summer soon to be upon us, chinos are looking like an increasingly better option to overheating denim. If you’re not already stocked up, go for this pair from workwear specialist Carhartt WIP, which has a slim tapered fit. Roll up and wear with white sneakers before hitting the beer garden.
Adidas Ultra Tech Shoes
Just when you thought you’d seen all the chunky #throwback trainers for one season, Adidas goes and drops the new Ultra Tech. The shoe time travels all the way back to the 1990s, with two fluoride colourways to get your teeth stuck into.
Stutterheim x Band Of Outsiders Raincoat
Despite the name, Band of Outsiders is firmly in the inside of the fashion world – man of the moment Donald Glover is a firm fan. This season the brand has hooked up with Swedish outerwear label Stutterheim on three special edition raincoats. If ever you needed an excuse to pray for showers, this is it.
J.Crew White 7″ Stretch Short
Preppy American brand J.Crew is always a safe bet when it comes to high-quality summer clothing. These white shorts are our pick of its new warm-weather collection, with a sleek form-fitting design cut from sweat-wicking cotton that helps avoid dreaded swamp crotch.
Harry’s Truman Shaving Set
With so many razor subscription services available nowadays, it’s hard to know which ones cut the mustard as well as your facial hair. Allow us to do the hard work and introduce Harry’s Truman Shaving Set, with German-engineered blades for a great shave at an even better price.
Desmond & Dempsey Atlas Print Pyjama Trousers
There’s no better feeling after a long day than slipping into fresh loungewear. And with London PJ-makers Desmond & Dempsey you can look fresh as well as feel it. The brand’s new garden-inspired summer range is full of natty hand-painted patterns like this pastoral scene of the mountainous Moroccan countryside.
Topman Red Smart Track Top With Satin Side-Stripe
In the latest line of fashion innovations, the side-stripe has emigrated from the trouser leg to the arm of your upper half. It works a treat on this sporty Topman track top. Wear with a classic polo shirt for a look that’s distinctly Royal Tenenbaums.
Turnbull & Asser Green Linen Shirt
Over its 130-year history, Turnbull & Asser has all but perfected the art of dress shirt making. Now the British brand is taking aim at the summer shirt with a range of linen button-ups in a smorgasbord of hazy pastel colours. We chose the green because it’s the closest thing we’re going to get to a palm tree stuck in this office.
Cos Ripple Stitch Cardigan
Hold up, could Cos be making a beeline for the streetwear market? Looking eerily like something Drake would shuffle around an empty white room in, the orange of this cardigan stands out even stronger thanks to the textured finish. If nothing else it’s a piece that’s going to look all shades of fire on the ‘gram.
Reiss Rover B Modern Fit Blazer
We don’t know how long we’ve been telling you, but with the sun creeping out from behind the clouds, now is the time to upgrade to summer tailoring. Reiss knows what it’s doing when it comes to keeping stylish guys suited and booted in the heat, as this sumptuous champagne coloured blazer can attest.
