Campbell Cole x Albam Belt
When it comes to the humble belt, it’s all about utility. Taking this definition to its extreme is London menswear brand Albam and accessories maker Campbell Cole. Inspired by those used by Japanese gardeners, as well as holding your trousers up, you can also hang the other pieces in the collection – a pair of pruners and a wallet – from it.
Nike x Undercover Daybreak Trainers
Originally debuted back in the late-1980s, the iconic Nike running shoe, the Daybreak, is having a well-deserved renaissance at the moment. The latest incarnation of this classic sees Japanese streetwear brand Undercover take a swipe at a much-hyped collaboration. The result is almost like an art piece, with a spaceship-like back heel that’s out of this world.
Vollebak Graphene Jacket
From jeans dyed with no water to jumpers that can change colour at will, the weird and wonderful world of fashion tech is impressing us no end. Next up is this jacket made out of graphene, a material that’s just one atom thick and the strongest ever discovered. Sure, you might not think you need that much protection, that is until you get hit with by a monsoon at Glastonbury.
Base Felix Suede Shoes
A brogue is a handy footwear weapon throughout the year, but the menswear staple can look a little stuffy in the summer. That’s not the case with these versions from Base London mind, cast in more casual camel suede, they’ve also got a contrasting sole for a sporty edge.

Hamilton & Hare Travel Trousers
For the unacquainted, Hamilton & Hare makes comfy loungewear, and we’re talking ‘where have you been all my life’ levels of comfy. Stepping out of the home, the London brand has made a pair of trousers specifically to tackle the discomfort of air travel, cut from a soft and breathable micro-waffle cotton in a smart-as-you like slimline cut.
Uniqlo x Engineered Garments Polo Shirt
You can spot an Engineered Garments collaboration a mile off. The US-Japanese workwear label excels at taking a brand’s staple and spinning it in a new way, as it has done with this striped polo shirt from Japanese high street store Uniqlo.
Toms Canvas Espadrilles
Philanthropic footwear brand Toms kickstarted the espadrille’s renaissance at the tail end of the last decade, and it still makes some of the best. Turn to this rustic-looking pair when even your lightest shoes become too stifling in the summer.
Swatch x BAPE Watch
From Rolex and Supreme hooking up to Tag Heuer getting all chummy with Fragment, the watch world has increasingly flirted with streetwear in recent years. This six-watch collection from Swatch and cult Japanese streetwear brand A Bathing Ape is the best meeting of minds yet, with each design being inspired by one of six of cities in the world.
The ultimate summer layer is one you can whip on and off quicker than you can shout “sun’s out, guns out”. This bold but easy-to-style pullover from Patagonia is perfect, made even better by the fact that it comes from one of the most ethically responsible and sustainable brands on the planet.
Nikben Pyjama Party Shirt
Wearing your jim-jams out and about has been fair game for a while now, but we’ve yet to see a floaty shirt this slick. Made by Swedish brand Nikben, it asks one very important question, how do you like your eggs in the morning? The answer: on your shirt.
Ellesse Swim Shorts
Swim like its 1991 with these Baywatch-inspired shorts from Ellesse. As well as the retro-tinged red colourway, they’re also finished with the sportswear brand’s logo. Just got to work on the beach bod now.
Viu The Savage Sunglasses
For proof the seventies are still going strong in menswear, lay your peepers on these sunglasses from Swiss eyewear brand VIU. Made from durable cotton acetate, they’ll last long enough to be around when the decade comes rocking back again after this current revival.
J Crew T-Shirt
In case you didn’t know, International Stripes Day is a legit thing (where were you? There was a zebra cake and everything.) It’s basically an excuse to add some lines to your wardrobe, and what better than this crew neck T-shirt that handily broadens the look of your chest, should you need the extra boost.
Esprit Linen Shorts
When it comes to the length of shorts, somewhere between the middle of the thigh and the top of the knee is usually the sweet spot. These linen leg coverers from Esprit might be closer to the latter, but that makes them perfect for balancing out taller frames.
Polo Ralph Lauren Polo Gold Blend Eau De Toilette
From polo shirts to Oxford button-downs, Ralph Lauren knows how to kit out guys. This new addition to its stable of stylish wares is a fragrance loaded with a rich blend of melon, peppery vetiver and gold incense for a sophisticated date night scent to impress the other half with.
Stussy Zeus T-Shirt
When it comes to the graphic tee, no one quite nails it like the streetwear crew. For its latest drop, surfwear brand Stussy (part of the holy streetwear triumvirate with Palace and Supreme) took inspiration from Greek mythology, with a shade of pink that lands just on the right side of wearable.
Reiss Silk Tie
You know what they say: when in doubt, overdress. As such, it pays to have a tie knocking about should the occasion arise. This one from premium high street brand Reiss is a particularly slinky choice, made out of silk and with a tasteful medallion pattern.
Eastpak x Andy Warhol Cross Body Bag
Andy Warhol was inspired by pop culture and in turn influenced pop culture, which is a very meta-cycle if you think about it. Right, now our brains hurt, so we’re just going to admire the new collection of bumbags, backpacks and suitcases from Eastpak all kitted out with the artist’s iconic Campbell Soup print.
