Certina PH200M Heritage Watch
Swiss watchmaker Certina might not have the horological cachet of Rolex or Patek Philippe, but when it comes to diving watches it’s one of the best out there. Boasting a history with both the U.S. and Australian Navy, this reissue of a 1960s model taps into the current vintage watch trend and comes with an 80-hour power reserve that you don’t usually find at this price point.
Uniqlo Andy Warhol T-Shirt
It’s menswear staples galore again this week at Uniqlo, which is selling a teasing trio of Breton stripe T-shirts each with a symbol from three of the most iconic artists of all time on the chest. All you need to do is decide if you’re #TeamHaring, #TeamBasquiat or #TeamWarhol.
Palladium x Christopher Raeburn Recamo OC Boots
Bootmaker Palladium has united with British talent Christopher Raeburn in a meet so perfect you could have Richard Curtis write a rom-com about it. The resulting marriage brings together Raeburn’s high-fashion stylings and sustainable sensibilities with Palladium’s hard-wearing craftsmanship, resulting in a range of boots that look like they were made for a trek on another planet.
Doers Hydrating Face Cream
With its clean yet punky packaging, new men’s cosmetics brand Doers certainly looks the business from the outside. But like our mothers told us, it’s what’s on the inside that counts. In this case it’s a face cream loaded with borage oil for shine-free hydration, green tea extract to reduce redness and vitamin E to combat ageing.
K-Swiss Fresno Sweater
Since retro sportswear brands started resurfacing, we’ve been patiently waiting for nineties giant K-Swiss to return to the fold. Our prayers have finally been answered with pieces like this logo-laden sweater that will feed all those hypebeasts baying for more throwbacks.
Cheaney 1886 Sneakers
For when you’ve got that sneaker convention at 3pm and your best mate’s wedding at 3:30pm, there are these plush deerskin sneakers from esteemed English shoemakers Cheaney. The brand just helpfully opened a slick new store in London’s latest shopping hub, Coal Drops Yard.
Burton Green Check Faux Wool Harrington Jacket
Pulling off a Harrington jacket is as easy as wearing a white T-shirt and a pair of black jeans, but now everyone’s clocked on to the style we’re having to raise our game. Thankfully there’s this elevating black watch tartan example from Burton with a thick, woolly texture that’s spot-on for the season.
Mr Porter x Aspesi Chambray Shirt
Cult Italian brand Aspesi already makes its pieces in small batches, so you don’t have to worry about any embarrassing matching with your colleagues. But when you throw in mother-of-pearl buttons on a chambray shirt cut to make you look as good as you possibly could, and all as part of a Mr Porter exclusive; well, it doesn’t get much more Mr VIP.
Tumi Recycled Hagen Backpack
It may not look it, but this Tumi backpack is 70 per cent rubbish. That is, almost three quarters of it is made from recycled waste material that, if it weren’t rendered in backpack form, would have gone into a landfill. With multiple pockets – including a water-resistant bottle holder that can be accessed from outside the bag – as well as leather detailing, it’s as far from throwaway fashion as it gets.
Weekday Wonderlust Hoodie
All this gloomy weather might have put you in a state of wanderlust, but until you can afford to hop on a plane you’ll just have to settle for ‘wonderlust’ (i.e. wondering when your next pay day is). Ease the pain with this comfy, streetwear-inspired hoodie from Weekday with its much-needed fleece lining.
Farnol Twill Chino Pant
Owning a good pair of chinos all comes down to the fit – not too slim, not too baggy. This pair from British brand Farnol falls somewhere in the middle with a slim straight fit that, when rolled at the hem, will sit perfectly above those new kicks.
Lacoste Olympic Heritage Collection
To commemorate 50 years since the 1968 Winter Olympics in its home country, Lacoste has released a suitably wintry capsule collection of quilted jackets, polo shirts and T-shirts such as this one, which will work as a layering piece throughout the colder months and beyond.
Miansai Ipsum Rope Bracelet
If you’re not used to wearing jewellery, a rope bracelet is a low-risk introduction. With a minimal design made from nylon and a sterling silver clasp, this one from Miansai can be monogrammed if you so chose to add a touch of individuality to your look.
Mango Classic Wool Tailored Coat
When compiling a list of investment pieces, a wool coat for winter should be at the top of the bill. For reasons why, simply look at this single-breasted overcoat from Mango, made out of a soft wool-blend fabric with a sharp fit and a medium-width notch lapel. You’ll be wanting to invest a great deal of time snuggling into it this winter.
Regenerate Advanced Foaming Mouthwash
You might have the finest suit collection this side of Tom Ford, but no man is fully dressed without a beaming smile. So keep those gnashers on top form with this foam mouthwash that releases micro-bubbles to scrub each and every tooth, good and proper.
Topman Patch Jeans
You don’t even have to distress your jeans at home with these patchwork extraordinaires from Topman. With a fit that sits high on the waist, we recommend turning them up at the bottom and pairing them with something simple like a black or white jumper up top, so there are no competing pieces in your outfit.
New Era New York Yankees Beanie
The New York Yankees Cap is a menswear tale as old as men wearing baseball caps, but it’s getting a little bit chilly these days to keep the ears bare. Keep your King Lears covered then with this New Era beanie that perfectly echoes the iconic cap, at least until it’s bearable to crack it out once again.
Barbour Lambswool Scarf
Winter outfits are often made up of dark, neutral shades – navy, grey and black are go-tos. A scarf is a great way of injecting a pop of colour into a look then, and red is a failsafe contrast. Simply loosely tie this lambswool Barbour scarf over the top of your outerwear, and you’re good to go.
Clarks x Land Rover Gore-Tex Boots
Could hiking boots be the shoe of the season? This Clarks pair, made in collaboration with Land Rover, is making a strong case. A stylish upper, made from waterproof Gore-Tex and black leather is coupled with performance-led details including a shock-absorbing midsole and a sole made of grippy ‘rubber pods’. Ideal for the sidewalk or the side of a mountain, then.
Zara Cross Body Bag
Cross-body bags don’t seem to be going away if the catwalks and fashion press are anything to go by. Large enough to allow you to empty your pockets and with room for an added water bottle or two, this quilted Zara style is a solid choice for traipsing around on the weekend, or for queuing for the latest Supreme drop on a Thursday morning.
