Topman Toffee Twist Essential Jumper
With a colourway curiously (and tastily) named toffee twist, this jumper from high street chain Topman is the perfect shade of brown for the warmer months. Rendered in 100 per cent cotton, it’s a relative steal, but will look money with a pair of navy tailored trousers.
Rains Holographic Backpack
Get the wet look while keeping all your stuff dry with this holographic backpack from Scandi rainwear brand Rains. Completely waterproof and with a glossy finish, it contains a laptop compartment inside, hidden phone pocket and handy magnetic closures.
The Kooples x NBA Golden State Warriors T-Shirt
Classy AF French brand The Kooples is going for the three-pointer this week, teaming up with the NBA to celebrate the teams in the league. A small hanging label and detachable keychain bring the fashion edge to a series of tees and sweatshirts that have got MVP written all over them. Swish.
Weekday Ripped Almost Black Jeans
When it comes to ripped denim, the general rule is less is more. With that in mind, it makes sense to snap up these almost black tapered jeans from Weekday which feature a single slit across the knee, which means they’ll slip on easily underneath a cotton button-down.
Christian Dior Spice Blend Perfume
Inspired by the homemade ‘Bay Rum’ scents invented by pirates, the new Spice Blend fragrance from French fashion house Christian Dior is a no holds b-arrr-ed scent bursting with fiery notes of rum, ginger and cinnamon.
Yoox x Disney T-Shirt
If you hadn’t realised by the countless fashion tie-ins and documentaries, it’s been 50 years this year since man landed on the moon. Aiming to do something different, e-tailer Yoox has hired Mickey Mouse to help it celebrate for a fun take on the landmark.
Puma x Diamond Leadcat Sandals
Cross-pollinating the worlds of sportswear and skatewear, this week Puma has teamed up with half-pipe favourite Diamond Supply Co. to take on the season’s hottest pattern, tie-dye. By melding it into the slider, the pair has created the chillest way to shuffle around the swimming pool this summer.
BoohooMan Side Panel Joggers
Wearing joggers counts as exercise, right? It’s got ‘jog’ in the name. No? Okay, well we’re still into this pair from BoohooMan, which come with an ice-cool side stripe and a tidy cuffed hem so you can show off your sneakers.
A Day’s March Merino Polo
It might be August, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be wearing stuff from achingly cool Scandi brand A Day’s March (geddit?) One very good reason why is this ultra-soft polo shirt, which pulls on the sweat-wicking properties of Merino wool. A no brainer for balmy days.
G-Shock Mudmaster Carbon Core Guard Watch
Your dress watch wasn’t built to withstand much more than a scuffle at the champagne bar. To take on more extreme conditions, look to G-shock’s latest model. Aptly named the Mudmaster, it features a mud-resistant case, compass, thermometer, GPS, barometer and an accelerometer to track every squelchy step.
M&S Zip-Through Cardigan
Once your grandad’s go-to, the zip-through cardigan has been getting some much-deserved fashion lovin’ of late. This one from Marks & Spencer stands out with its textured finish, providing a much-needed layer on cooler summer evenings.
Stan Ray Ball Cap
Affordable, hand-wearing and with something to suit just about every body shape, workwear is arguably the easiest of style tribes to get behind. Texas-based Stan Ray is one of the brands at the top of the pile, known for producing quality tees, sweats and caps like this baller version that would sit nicely alongside its staple painter pants.
Dr Martens x Nanamica Shoes
There’s previous between Japanese label Nanamica and heritage footwear brand Dr Martens, but this time around the two have taken things to a new level. Behold the all-new Camberwell silhouette: a riff on the classic DM low-profile shoe with a spiky, shark-teeth tread and moc toe construction.
J Crew Corduroy Dock Shorts
Beanies, Breton tops, it’s fair to say sea-farers know a thing or two about style. Adding to the list, these 1960s-inspired dock shorts fit like swim shorts but have all the sophistication of something more tailored. It’s all down to the dark blue colourway and fine needlecord that still looks smart with just a plain white tee up top.
MyZone Compression T-Shirt
Still strapping on a fitness tracker every time you hit the gym? What are you, a Victorian? When paired with the brand’s MZ-3 chest sensor MyZone’s quick-drying and sweat-proof T-shirt will measure your heart rate and calorie burn, sending data to your smartphone or Apple Watch.
Dick Moby Round-Frame Acetate Sunglasses
Founded by two keen surfers, eco-friendly eyewear brand Dick Moby is a reaction to the eye-watering beach pollution the pair saw while hitting the waves. Expect oil-free acetate frames and recycled materials to do their bit for the cause, whether you’re on a beach or just walking to work.
Vans BMX Off The Wall Anorak
Back in 1979, when BMX was still an underground concern, skatewear brand Vans boldly became its first sponsor. Four decades on, and with BMX now an established part of the Olympics, Vans is celebrating the sport with a collection that will look just as good on the bike as it will in a bar.
Novesta x Working Class Heroes Sneakers
New white sneakers don’t stay new or white for long, especially when you live in the wettest part of the UK. Which is why Cumbrian-based menswear store Working Class Heroes enlisted the expertise of Slovakian brand Novesta to craft a brown leather version of the brand’s sneakers that won’t turn colour in a downpour.
French Connection Sobo Shirt
Adding ‘don’t clash prints’ to the list of outdated men’s style rules, high street brand French connection has created this mid-weight overshirt that uses a mishmash of five different patterns. Luckily it’s kept simple with a classic blue and cream colour palette, so you can throw it on with black skinny jeans to bring a touch of grunge to your Saturday night look.
Zara Embossed Card Holder
Show you’re the boss with this leather cardholder from Zara. Finished with mock croc embossing, it can hold up to five cards, which means it has the added benefit of not bulking out your trouser pockets like a chunky (and wholly unnecessary) wallet will.
