Goodhood x Beams T-Shirt
Sound the collaboration klaxon. Two of the coolest menswear stores in the world have collided in this latest collection from London’s Goodhood and esteemed Japanese tastemaker Beams. The result puts a tongue-in-cheek spin on historic cultural imagery from the Land of the Rising Sun with some playful graphics to light up any streetwear ‘fits you might put together.
Duke & Dexter x Snoop Dogg Sliders
Careful now, these ones have been dropped like its hot. The one and only D O double G has only gone and released a collection of grandiose velvet sliders and loafers, all with Snoops’ favourite leaf as a motif and served up in a shoe ‘doggy’ bag. A bit much? Of course. Still, want them? Fo’ shizzle.
Jaeger Open Collar Sweater
Having been around for 135 years, it’s little wonder British clothing brand Jaeger has perfected faultless smart-casual wardrobe staples. Nail down the look with pieces like this open collar shirt sweatshirt with a Breton stripe design that will provide a more-than-able extra layer in the evenings this summer.
Wrangler Indigood Jeans
More than a trillion gallons of water are used in the dying process of fabrics every year, which is enough water to fill 40 million swimming pools. Recognising the need for change, denim powerhouse Wrangler has come up with a genius foam-dye that uses no water. Zilch. One pair of jeans is small fry, sure, but we’re getting there.
Adidas Supercourt Sneakers
It’s no secret that Adidas has a long and illustrious history when it comes to sneakers, and one well worth delving into. The German sportswear giant has done just that with its brand new Home of Classics collection, which takes 10 of its most iconic silhouettes and reproduces them in crisp, clean white, so all the focus is on that for-the-ages design.
Orlebar Brown Father & Son Day T-Shirt
Doing its bit for men the world over, beyond making them look ace in a pair of swim shorts, Orlebar Brown’s latest tees have been created to support charity Father and Son Day. The initiative aims to raise awareness of male cancer, which is an easy enough pursuit for fellas to get behind, buoyed by the cracking but simple designs the British brand has come up with.
H&M Skinny Fit Suit Trousers
There was a time when trousers were second fiddle to the menswear heroes up top. But guys are at last waking up to the easy styling power of having a stand-out pair of trousers in their rotation. Take these checked crackers from H&M, which can be thrown on with a white T-shirt and plain sneakers for a look that’s all shades of fire.
Hot Futures Sunglasses
A pair of sunglasses is arguably the easiest style elevator in the menswear playbook. The shades over at independent London brand Hot Futures are some of the slickest you could stick in front of your peepers, treading a fine line between being bold but still easy to wear.
After the perfect summer sweatshirt to add some ballast to your looks on breezy summer evenings? Don’t sweat it, American brand K-Swiss has your back (and front and arms) with this simple but effective logo number in a handsome shade of blue.
New Era Backpack
Ever heard of a techwear ninja? No, us neither. But if it was a thing, they would almost certainly be creeping about town in all black with this sleek backpack, which comes with a padded laptop sleeve and a hardy outer layer, slung over their shoulders.
Elemis Luxury Travel Kit
When it comes to skincare, Elemis is one of the most trusted names in the game. If you’re not yet acquainted with its appearance-boosting products, think about getting yourself this handy starter pack that comes loaded with a face cleanser, moisturiser, body wash and shave gel. It’s instant handsome in a bag.
Superdry Green Sweatshirt
While neutrals never fail to look good, summer is the season to get out of your black, navy and grey box. Green, like the one on this sweatshirt by Superdry, is a good shade to start with. Keep things simple down below with a pair of mid-wash jeans and Bob’s your well-dressed uncle.
Marks & Spencer Miracle Jacket
Any globetrotting businessman will tell you how hard it is to keep tailoring from ending up a crumpled mess while travelling. Do yourself a favour and invest in the miracle suit from British department store Marks & Spencer, which has been made from a unique linen that prevents those dastardly creases from rearing their heads.
Topman Bomber Jacket
Finding the right summer jacket is trickier than it looks. You need something versatile and lightweight, not to mention durable enough to survive being piled on and peeled off every five minutes (weather, eh?) This neat cream bomber from Topman will do the job, just watch out for grass stains.
Creed Aventus Cologne
The problem with sequels is that they rarely hit the same heights as the OG (apart from Shrek 2, that is). Bucking the trend is this follow-up to the legendary Aventus fragrance from Creed. Sure, it’s more expensive than the stuff that the guy down the pub flogs, but you can’t put a price on the classy mix of ginger, mandarin and pink peppercorn which sits on a leathery, musky base.
BoohooMan Revere Collar Shirt
The Cuban collar shirt is now less of a trend, more a bonafide summer staple. This floaty viscose version from BoohooMan stands in contradiction to all the in-your-face printed designs that have been knocking about lately, opting instead for a classic pinstripe that will pair easily with a blazer over the top.
Adidas Parley Hero Swim Shorts
A dip in the ocean is one of life’s small pleasures, an activity made significantly less pleasurable by bits of plastic bobbing around about you. These swim shorts from Adidas have been made out of plastic taken from the beach and in a dashing double blue, they look mighty fine too.
Dr Martens x The Who 1461 Shoes
Dr Martens has a long association with music, from 1970s punks stomping around Camden in their Docs to killer collaborations with the likes of New Order and Joy Division. Its latest musical team-up sees the brand take on Mod pioneers The Who with three classic silhouettes imprinted with the iconic tricolour target.
Tissot NBA Collector Chronograph Watch
Congratulations are in order for basketball team the Toronto Raptors which celebrated its first ever NBA championship this week. Swiss watchmaker Tissot also released a new model to time with the finals. It comes 30 interchangeable case backs, one for each NBA team. Don’t call us a glory supporter, but we’re going to have the Raptors on the back of ours.
