Topman White Stretch Skinny Jeans
White clothing shouldn’t be confined to P. Diddy’s annual hip-hop car crash. As Topman proves, a pair of bright jeans can be all-star material, with an in-between stretch skinny fit capable of flattering your legs without suffocating them. Just don’t pair yours with a white puffer jacket and nine-carat jewellery. Please.
Arket G2 Wash French Terry Sweatshirt
Eco-fashion – wait, where are you going? Proving that it’s not all hemp trousers and bamboo hats, Arket has come up with a way of converting air into a gas that cleans its sweatshirts after dying, reducing water use while giving them a soft, broken-in finish.
J.Crew x Gola Sneakers
Sneaker collaborations are usually awash with bright colours, gaudy logos and queues longer than an ATM on January payday. All of which makes J.Crew’s hook-up with retro sportswear brand Gola especially appealing. With a blank canvas upper, simple branding and a price tag that won’t make your eyes water, it’s the nineties revival we’ve been waiting for.
River Island Stripe Jumper
Vertical stripes are getting ready to take over spring style this year, and here’s proof. River Island’s deck chair-esquire jumper swaps dainty pinstripes for chunky green, black and cream lines that will add a pop of colour and an on-trend edge to even the simplest of outfits.
Replay Grover Straight Selvedge Jeans
Selvedge may set the gold standard in jeans, but wearing a pair for the first time is often an experience akin to wearing two plaster casts on your legs. Helpfully, denim giant Replay has come up with ‘Hyperselvedge’ – an 11oz stretch indigo fabric that gives some give to the premium weave without compromising on look.
Calvin Klein Obsessed Intense
Spring is on the approach, making now the ideal time to switch to a lighter, summer scent. First created in 1993, Calvin Klein’s Obsession fragrance has certainly stood the test of time. This re-worked and re-named version goes big on vanilla and black amber, giving it a masculine edge.
Levi’s Pastel Trucker Jacket
Despite currently having a moment as ‘the millennial’s shade of choice’, we have a feeling pink will be sticking around for a few more seasons to come. And for that, we can thank labels like Levi’s and its vibrant rendition of the classic trucker jacket in a cooler than cool ice-cream shade.
Supreme Dark Camo Camp Cap
British retailer The Idle Man has teamed up with DJ Ross Wilson to sell off his frankly ludicrous personal Supreme collection. While the £1,000 basketball may be out of reach, you can settle for this: an adjustable camouflage cap complete with the streetwear label’s iconic logo straight from the US of A.
G.H.Bass Winter Penny Loafer
The loafer is somewhat of an unsung menswear hero, but with preppy looks failing to fall out of style, this could be the year the underdog becomes best in show. For a year-round option, look to the OG name of stylish slip-ons – G.H.Bass – and the brand’s new winter penny style, which packs a thick EVA rubber midsole.
A.P.C Benny Denim Shirt
Cult Parisian brand A.P.C is already a leader when it comes to denim down south, but it’s also a dab hand up top, too. Take the Benny shirt, which is made from premium Japanese vintage cotton chambray and finished with mother of pearl button fastenings. No seriously, take it.
David Beckham House 99
We aren’t embarrassed to say it, David Beckham is a beautiful man – a hat-trick of hair, face and style. So, naturally, we’re excited about the launch of his very own grooming line. Produced in partnership with L’Oréal and inspired by British barbershop culture, the House 99 range contains 13 products including moisturisers, cleansers and styling products.
Mango Striped Unstructured Blazer
Suits needn’t be stuffy. Like Spanish brand Mango’s unstructured take on the sartorial straitjacket, a looser fit can serve your off-duty wardrobe well, with a cleverly deployed pinstripe drawing the eye up and down for a more flattering shape.
Belstaff Origins Collection Flux T-Shirt
You only need to look as far as Belstaff’s new Origins collection to see how the brand has amassed an army of fans ranging from style gods to actual god (well, the pope). With a focus on lightweight, high-performance materials, the line-up includes pieces like the Flux T-shirt, which is cut from a technical jersey and finished with the Belstaff logo on the sleeve.
Filling Pieces Lay Up Icey 2 Flow
The style world owes a great debt to basketball. Maybe not for sleeveless jerseys, or below-the-knee shorts, or sweatbands, or… you get the idea. But certainly for footwear, particularly high-tops, which is what inspired Dutch label Filling Pieces to create this slam dunk pair of kicks.
Hanro Night And Day Cotton-Jersey Pyjama Set
Pyjamas aren’t just for five-year-olds and guys who smoke a pipe. Slipping into some seriously stylish sleepwear is one of the best ways to wind down before hitting the hay. Not to mention, they stand you more chance of having your bones jumped than a grubby old T-shirt and sagging sausage skin underwear.
H&M Cylindrical Sports Bag
The merits of a good gym bag cannot be overstated. Aside from the fact it keeps your sweat-stained squat shorts away from your after-work shirt, it allows you to let everyone know you’re on the train to #Gainsville without having to shout about it. We’re rather fond of this barrel-style carrier from H&M, not least because of the price.
Selected Shharval Trousers
Well-fitting smart trousers are just one of the essentials you’d be wise to incorporate into your wardrobe. This handsome pair from Danish label Selected Homme are constructed using a textured fabric, meaning they’ll work just as well while you do during the 9-5 as on the weekend worn with sneakers.
P.E Nation Up Shot T-Shirt
Founded in Australia in 2016, P.E Nation describes itself as an active-meets-streetwear brand. What that means is if you decide to take a detour on the way to the gym (to, you know, anywhere but the gym) you won’t look out of place in one of the brand’s performance pullovers or technical T-shirts.
