Colgate Bamboo Toothbrush
There’s no point diving headfirst into the sustainability trend if you’re not going to clean up your plastic consumption elsewhere around the house. Start by refining your daily brush with Colgate and this 100 percent biodegradable toothbrush, made out of bamboo and with zero plastic packaging.
Ellesse x Wood Wood Long Sleeve T-Shirt
A recent collab with menswear disruptor Liam Hodges got the fashion world talking about Ellesse once more. Now it’s full-on raging though thanks to this latest team-up with slick-as-they-come Danish brand Wood Wood. The edit has a strong ski-wear influence for pieces that are as crisp and clear as the pure white in Verbier.
Uniqlo U Corduroy Jacket
Japanese brand Uniqlo has long been the most stylish store on the high street, mostly down to the stellar design team helmed by Christopher Lemaire. The brand’s latest Uniqlo U collection is personally spearheaded by the Frenchman, featuring high fashion silhouettes, top-notch fabrics and knock-out classics like this smooth corduroy blazer.
CQP Montem Sneakers
As we ease into winter don’t relegate your sneakers to the back of the wardrobe, just make them work harder. Minimalist trainer brand CQP has two new styles for the cooler climes including this mid-top design, which comes complete with a snug shearling lining ready to warm your feet when the need arises.
Richard James Origami Tie
The latest edit at forward-thinking Savile Row tailor Richard James takes its cue from the far east; specifically, the stylish city of Tokyo. The suiting is bold and beautiful just like the capital’s style, but we’re especially taken with the slim silk ties decorated in groovy geometric origami patterns that’ll add a welcome colour pop to tailoring.
Hamilton & Hare Terry Towel Sweatshirt
Hamilton & Hare started out solely in nightwear, yet it’s applied the same dedication to comfort to its new casualwear line. This sweatshirt is a prime example. Made out of a dreamy terry towel cotton, it looks and feels a bit like you’re wearing velvet – perfect for spending your day lounging around the house.
Pringle of Scotland Reissued Jumper
Launched with a pop-up at menswear haven Dover Street Market, heritage British knitwear maker Pringle of Scotland has released a capsule collection that dips into some of its boldest knitwear from the 1980s. The result is almost accidental streetwear, with patterns that jump out at you and all fabricated by 200 years of experience.
Novesta Suede Chukka Boots
All of the best sneaker brands have their unique motifs. For Slovakian imprint Novesta it’s all about that chunky tread, which makes it one of the best sneaker brands to take into the treacherous terrain of winter, now made even more suitable for the impending frost via a beefy chukka boot silhouette. Just make sure to watch that suede.
Commes Des Garcons x Monocle Hinoki Parfum
Achingly hip Franco-Japanese label Commes Des Garcons joins forces with high-brow coffee-table mag Monocle for a collection of four fragrances influenced by the former’s Japanese homeland. Hinoki is the most nose-catching, based on the aromas of a traditional Japanese wood bath, enticing with fresh notes of cedar and oakmoss.
Beacon & Armour M-24 Backpack
If a bag can survive a storm at sea, it can pull you through your tube journey into work. That’s the thinking behind this tarpaulin-covered sack from British indie label Beacon & Armour, which has been confidently deemed storm-proof by the team behind it. Here’s hoping this winter doesn’t put that promise to the test.
Frescobol Carioca Pyjama Shirt
Wearing your PJs outside the house might have been uni student behaviour before, but the new trend for sharp, floaty pyjama shirts is anything but sloppy. Resortwear specialist Frescobol Carioca has come out with an absolute belter, inspired by mid-century styles with its off-kilter piping pattern around the edges – it’s a statement shirt for serious ballers.
John Lewis & Partners Herringbone Balmacaan Coat
If you’re looking for a stand-out coat to take you through winter and beyond, you can’t go wrong with this herringbone showpiece from John Lewis. Crafted out of a heavyweight Italian wool, its relaxed fit means you can top up the layers underneath while the belted waist brings shape to the fit with a subtle cinch.
Ralph Lauren Indigo Stadium Sweatshirt
Tipping its hat to the retro sportswear on show at the 1992 Summer Olympics, Ralph Lauren’s latest collection takes iconic pieces from its archive and updates them with a unique indigo dye finish. This pullover stands-out with its vintage style trim and textured French terry fabric.
Zara Texture Checked Shirt
Bring a touch of elegance to your work shirt rotation with this subtle check shirt from high street stalwart Zara. Featuring a tidy raised check, wear yours without a tie and tucked smartly under a crisp navy suit for a failsafe office outfit.
Anonymous ISM Tie-dye Socks
Tie-dye was one of the biggest trends over the summer, shipped by modern style icons Jonah Hill and ASAP Rocky. It’s looking unlikely it will go away either, with Japanese sock brand Anonymous ISM using it to anchor its latest winter sock range. They’re made on old-school looms and come complete with a dreamy bleached effect for full-on scumbro points.
Chinatown Market x Browns T-Shirt
New York Streetwear label Chinatown Market brings its zany aesthetic to high fashion retailer Browns for a selection of quick-witted tees. We can’t take our eyes off this word search printed take, mainly because we can’t find FashionBeans among Versace and Saint Laurent. We’ll let them off this once.
Norse Projects x Oi Polloi Cap
You don’t need a yacht to enjoy the merits of the high-seas-inspired capsule edit Norse Projects has made exclusively for Mancunian tastemaker Oi Polloi. This fresh-off-the-boat cap will sweetly top off any 80s-inspired looks you might be cooking up, superyacht not included, sadly.
Far Afield Puffin Shirt
You know what menswear needs more of at the moment? Puffins. The beautifully beaked bird is looking resplendent on this shirt from Brighton based menswear label Far Afield. Set in a relaxed fit and with a button-down collar, it’s the smart-casual statement piece you never knew you needed.
Tracksmith Stadium Jacket
Retro athleisure has raced into our hearts this year. Leading the pack is vintage sportswear brand Tracksmith, with pieces like this sleek track top cut out of a lightweight tricot fabric in an elegant cream and navy combo. Serious Roger Bannister vibes.
