Tag Heuer x Fragment Design Carrera Watch
The watch world has been a bit slow on the whole streetwear-gone-stratospheric thing. Making a late charge (or early if you compare it to other watchmakers) is Tag Heuer who has teamed up with cult Japanese streetwear label Fragment Design for an update on its vintage 1963 Carrera model. It comes with a distinct alligator strap as well as a classic NATO version, and subtle Fragment branding to indicate its rarity of only 500 pieces.
Colmar x Van Orton T-Shirt
Italian outerwear brand Colmar has dished up a mighty fine tee this week, combining with graphic design duo Van Orton for this vibrant, pop-art ode to skiing. Chamonix here we come.
Uniqlo x KAWS x Sesame Street Sweatshirt
Hear thee, hear thee, it’s the OG streetwear crew featuring your main men Bert and Ernie going hard and hooking up with high street giant Uniqlo and artist KAWS for a clean and minimal Sesame Street capsule collection. We need it like Cookie Monster needs cookies.
AllSaints Metal Wave Eau De Parfum
The new AllSaints unisex fragrance is a bit different from the other scents doing the rounds this winter. Rather than go deep and musky on sandalwood and leather it keeps it crisp with sharp juniper berry before magnolia and exotic papyrus wood come waltzing in for an almost honey sweet accord.
G.H. Bass Suede Boots
The king of the penny loafer, G.H.Bass has turned its hand to the classic chukka boot, with a plush black suede and a seriously chunky footbed and midsole twist. Wear with slim fitting black jeans for an easy but still tidy alternative to the Chelsea while autumn is still here.
Fila Long-Sleeve Polo Shirt
Sure it looks like a reserve goalkeepers kit from the early 90s, but that’s all part of the eye-popping, throwback charm with this long-sleeve polo from Fila. Don’t try and compete with it downstairs mind, a pair of simple jeans and white sneakers will do.
Mankind Christmas Collection Box
Men’s grooming e-tailer Mankind is celebrating this festive season the only way it knows how: with a gargantuan, carefully selected collection of its all-time favourite products. We’re fans of the lot, but the pick of the box has to be the wrinkle-banishing Elemis pro-collagen marine cream.
Peregrine Larsen Jumper
Avoid the cringey Santa and Rudolph jumpers this Crimbo with this chevron patterned jumper from top knitwear maker (among other things) Peregrine. It’s chunky, but the regulating Merino wool construction will prevent you from overheating while that cream and navy combo will look very swish underneath a tidy navy peacoat.
Carhartt WIP x Timex Watch
In a solid one-two, workwear pioneer Carhartt WIP has collaborated with trusty watchmaking compatriot Timex for a timepiece as utilitarian as they come. Nylon strap, resin case, like-clockwork quartz movement.
Cheap Monday Reflective Hoodie
No more the preserve of moody teens, the hoodie is now a featured part in any smart-casual wardrobe. Slim and fitting options like this version from rapscallion Scandi brand Cheap Monday are easier to style, working well in layered looks underneath a bulky winter coat.
Club Monaco Cotton Twill Chinos
For decades trousers were simply an accompaniment to the star-of-the-show jacket or jumper up top. But now we are living in the age of the pantaloon, so add a dash of colour to your collection of breeches with this rich burgundy pair from Club Monaco which would be served admirably by an accompanying white tee.
Knomo Laptop Backpack
A good backpack should be able to carry all your essentials, fit snugly on your back and not jar with the rest of your outfit. Under that criteria, this laptop carrier from Knomo excels with more compartments than the Orient Express and a sleek, slimline shape that can only enhance a similarly monochrome get-up.
Puma x ASOS Organic Cotton T-Shirt
Puma is chasing those 90s hits in its latest drop exclusive to online retailer ASOS. This organic cotton tee sums it all up nicely with a baggy fit, a bold shade, and a simple logo.
Blue De Genes Oria Ikaria Blazer
Denim is gearing up for a big year in 2019 with the fabric due to be explored beyond its usual guises (i.e. a jacket and jeans). This denim blazer should ease you into the denim-done-differently trend, gently taking the blazer’s formality and lessening it with that indigo hue.
Norse Projects Brushed Flannel Shirt
What if there was a shirt that could simultaneously impress your mum and all of your hypebeasting mates. Enter this subtle melange shirt from Scandi street-wearing fave Norse Projects, with its classy mother of pearl buttons and soft brushed flannel fabric, which will only get better with age.
Weekday Sunday Black Jeans
The ultra skinny jean is so out at the moment it might as well be dumped in a chute and sent into out of space. A far chicer alternative would be these relaxed black jeans from Weekday with their drop crotch to give the crown jewels some room and tapered legs to keep a desirable V-shaped silhouette.
Soulland Villy Beanie
Real men wear pink. There, we said it. It’s a shade that exudes style nous and plenty of confidence, but if you still have lingering doubts, dabble in the shade first with this beanie from Soulland decked out in lush merino wool.
