Lee Jeans Long Sherpa Jacket
One of the oldest denim brands in the world, Lee Jeans, is celebrating a whopping 130 years of perfecting the art with this latest collection inspired by its Kansas hometown. The jeans are, as always, a great fit at a cracking value, but it’s this hardy denim chore jacket that we fell in love with, cut longer than the more traditional trucker, and with a cushy sherpa lining.
Stüssy Half Zip Sweatshirt
One of the more affordable and easily accessible heavyweights in the streetwear scene, Stüssy is as adept at other sides of menswear as it is in skatewear. Take this fine argyle patterned, knitted polo sweater which sits neatly in the mid-century bracket, brought up-to-date and up-to-shape with a neat zip and ribbed hems.
Debenhams x Hannah Gibbins Wool Blend Trousers
As part of its long-standing support for London Graduate Fashion Week, department store Debenhams has enlisted talented up-and-comer Hannah Gibbins for a 13-piece capsule collection. It’s a cracking debut, a mix of hardy workwear, easy to wear layers and mustard colour injections, topped off by these classy pleated trousers made with an oh-so-comfortable, slouchy fit.
Berghaus Tramantana Fleece Jacket
If you haven’t received the memo yet, all those brands you previously associated with camping holidays of yore are now imperiously on-trend. Berghaus is one of the brands taking advantage of the situation with a rave-inspired, fashion-forward collection named after the street it was founded on. That ’90s inspiration comes out most strongly on this fleece that features an Aztec pattern trim and some bold, spliced-up colour blocking.
Fila Oakmont TR Black and Red Trainers
King of the affordable chunky trainer, Fila is combining its wedgy know-how with the sneaker trend du jour, the trail running shoe. The result is a jagged, multi-panelled monster, the sort of sneaker that terrifies and induces sneakerhead awe in equal measure. Available in three colourways, the black and red stands out the most.
Tommy Hilfiger Strike Through T-Shirt
A logo tee is nothing without an eye-catching logo stealing all the plaudits. This one from Tommy Hilfiger has the branding nailed, embroidered in the team colours of the preppy label. It’s a ’90s throwback that leans toward the classy rather than the try-hard or kitsch.
Oliver Spencer Grandpa Coat
Not satisfied with gifting the fashion world a cracking collar, Grandpa has his sights firmly set on the outerwear game this season. Zipping past the name for now, British designer Oliver Spencer has come up with a great statement layer, helpfully made water repellent and fully lined. It will certainly pop against an all-black suit this winter, and beyond.
Frescobol Carioca Modernist Sweater
We’re loving the statement jumpers knocking about the place at the moment. Resortwear brand Frescobol Carioca is usually more renowned for its geometric patterned swim shorts, but have potentially come up with the best statement jumper of the lot, made in a lightweight but warm merino wool and decked out in a beautiful blue and white formation inspired by the sculptures of celebrated Brazilian artist Lygia Clark.
Longines Heritage Classic Watch
The watch world has seen plenty of styles brought back from the 1960s and 1970s in recent years, but for its latest big release, luxury watchmaker Longines is going even further back. Inspired by the sector dials of the 1930s, the style offers a cleanly designed dial tastefully embellished with a pair of blue steel hands and a napped leather strap.
Harry’s 2 in 1 Shampoo & Conditioner
Not simply content with keeping our faces free from foliage, shaving brand Harry’s wants to give our glorious manes a good scrub too with its new two in one shampoo and conditioner. Not only does it save you carrying an extra bottle around, but its also completely free from nasty parabens and sulphates which makes it ideal for dandruff sufferers and those with a sensitive scalp.
Nigel Cabourn x Liam Gallagher Ventile Smock Jacket
Certified rockstar Liam Gallagher is as famous for his parkas as he is his stellar Twitter game, and lack of brotherly love. So it’s not surprising that somebody has enlisted his expertise for his a new parka collection. British workwear hero Nigel Cabourn has stepped up to the challenge, working with Gallagher on five different jackets that were also inspired by the smocks worn by the military in the 1940s.
Universal Works x Sebago Campsides Suede Shoes
Born in the home of preppy style – New England – back in 1946, Sebago is one of the brands that made moccasins cool and is still killing it today. Still keeping it fresh, the American shoemaker has joined forces with contemporary workwear brand Universal Works for a couple of suede sensations including these natty low-top lace-ups which combine the traditional Native American moccasin with a ’50s bowling shoe.
Beams Plus School Boy Socks
Ametora, the name for the slow and steady assimilation of vintage American fashion into Japanese culture, is beautifully brought to life by the in-house label at department store Beams. These socks from the brand are straight out of summer camp 1955, with that retro striping and nice, thick cotton construction.
Snow Peak Quick Dry Beret
Heritage Japanese hiking brand Snow Peak is as revered in fashion circles these days as it is in the old mountaineering crew. The brand is about to launch its first European store in London, where you can buy performance wear meets ‘fashun dahling’ pieces like this quick-drying and moisture-wicking beret.
Uniqlo x JW Anderson Flannel Shirt
The latest instalment of the blockbuster franchise that is Uniqlo and its team-up with British designer JW Anderson is all about the great British outdoors, and more specifically blustery Cornwall. Expect on-trend fleeces, versatile down jackets, and lambswool turtlenecks, along with high-fashion touches to Uniqlo standards like the pattern-clashing sleeves on this pullover flannel shirt.
Wood Wood x Timex Waterbury Watch
A long line of clever collaborations with prized brands like Carhartt WIP, YMC and Neighbourhood have made Timex one of the go-to watch brands among the fashion crew. Another match-up, this time with slick Scandi brand Wood Wood, impresses again, updating the fan favourite Waterbury model with dual branding and a hidden message on the dial that can only be seen when the watch is back-lit.
Pull&Bear Cargo Denim Jeans
The ’90s have been back for a while and the latest style to emerge from the time vortex is this pair of denim cargo pants. Made by Spanish high street chain Pull&Bear, the bountiful choice of pockets is a nifty change-up from your regular jeans as well as a much-needed safe haven for your keys, wallet and whatever other knick-knacks you accumulate through the day.
Armor Lux Crew Neck Sweater
Best known for its breezy Breton tops, French brand Armor Lux is also pretty handy at conjuring up nautical-inspired treats for the rest of your wardrobe. This navy sweater is a blue beauty, with its clean and crisp branding and a preppy V-shaped insert under the neckline, it’s teeming with Gallic flair and all without the high-fashion faff.
Puma x Karl Lagerfeld Roma Trainers
The legendary fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld may have passed earlier this year, but his brand lives on and it’s collaborating with German sportswear giant Puma for an updated take on some of its most popular sneaker styles. The retro runner Roma model takes to the collaboration best, cast in Lagerfeld’s favoured black and white, with playful dots patterned around the upper and a cool circular logo on the heel.
BoohooMan Iron Maiden T-Shirt
It’s no longer just washed-up roadies and crazed mega-fans who are touting band tees. Well, we say that. We may never know how crazy A-listers Tom Holland, Michael Fassbender, and Justin Bieber are about Brit heavy metal rockers Iron Maiden, but they’ve all been seen in the band’s tees at the moment, and you can cop the same grungy, scumbro look with this licensed version from online retailer BoohooMan.
