Belstaff Lewisham Sweatshirt
Worn by everyone from David Beckham to the Pope, Belstaff has a long and illustrious history dating back to 1924. The British heritage brand has significantly modernised in recent times, but the quality remains the same. Proof of which can be found in its SS19 collection, containing pieces like this minimalist and contemporary-looking loopback cotton sweatshirt .
Beams F Grandad-Collar Shirt
Beams F, the elevated casualwear label from cult Tokyo store Beams has never been available to buy outside of Japan. That is until now, because the menswear gods at Mr Porter have landed an exclusive 31-piece collection. We’re eyeing up this smart linen grandad collar, an able ally in any work wardrobe.
Vans Versa Fleece
This season, get you a winter jacket that does both. You know, one that has the cushy properties of a fleece with the water repelling power of your anorak. Sound good? Well, you’re in luck, as Vans has come through with exactly that, and all decked out in the skate brand’s iconic check pattern.
Drop Out Sports Rugby Shirt
The Six Nations rugby tournament starts next week. And just as the countries of Europe prepare to do battle with each other over a rubber egg, the fashion world is falling in love with the kit. Support both with this collection of six differently coloured rugby shirts by Drop Out Sports for menswear boutique Garbstore spun from 100 per cent organic yarns and sustainable textiles.
Hugo Boss Stainless Steel Watch
Stylish watches under the £200 mark are harder to come by than manners on the morning commute into work. Rise above the pack with this charming timepiece from Hugo Boss with its large Roman numerals, two sub-dials and mock croc leather strap that make it look like something straight out of the ’50s.
Sandqvist Wash Bag

G-Shock Seven Lucky Gods Bishamonten Watch
It’s been 35 years since G-Shock entered the market with an ingenious design that can be put through the mill and still keep ticking. As part of its birthday celebrations, the watch brand has launched a Seven Lucky Gods collection based on the ancient Japanese belief system, which makes for worthy dinner table conversation should anyone ask.
Reiss Rectangle Printed Shirt
In the esteemed words of Huey Lewis, it’s hip to be square. On that logic, you’d be a fool to pass up the chance to be decked out in this rectangular print shirt from Reiss. Wear it solo for a bold statement, or slip it under a navy suit for tailoring 2.0.
Diadora Tokyo Sneakers
In this era of sneaker maximalism, it’s refreshing to see a simple stripped-back pair that you can wear with almost anything. Plucked straight from the Diadora back catalogue, these low-top sneakers come decked out in plush suede with a hardy gum rubber sole. Pair with wide legs, jeans, leather chaps – they’ll go with just about anything.
No Label Black Roll Neck
It’s all killer, no filler when it comes to the premium basics at menswear brand No Label. This black roll neck is the pick of its winter offering, crafted from soft Merino wool mixed with fine cotton, so it’s warm but also soft on your skin. Scratchy jumpers? Pfft, wouldn’t know mate.
Uniqlo Ceizer T-Shirt
If there’s one thing Uniqlo aces time and time again (and let us tell you, they serve a hell of a lot of good menswear), it’s T-shirts. The retailer’s new collection of graphic styles has been created with Dutch typographer Pieter Ceizer and is a sunny, funny lot with good vibe slogans and simple illustrations.
A Day’s March Overshirt
Do you believe in love at first sight? We weren’t sure until we saw this overshirt. New to the roster at Scandi brand A Day’s March, its made out of sturdy wool with three utilitarian patch pockets. It’s the brick red colourway that’s the real star of the show though, the sort of lusty hue romance novels go nuts over.
Wax London Elwin Cord Coat
There’s more than a bit of the ’60s rocker about this retro-looking coat from contemporary menswear label Wax London. Aside from the jumbo navy corduroy, the double-breasted cut is finished with lapels wider than an airport runway. Don’t listen to the naysayers, rock ‘n’ roll is still alive, just don’t go setting fire to any guitars.
L’Oreal Men Ultimate Beard Grooming Kit
Growing a beard your mates will be jealous of takes more than just letting mother nature take its course. This dedicated grooming kit from L’Oreal will help your follicles reach their potential, with a wash to get rid of grimy build-up, an oil to tame out of control hairs and a styling cream to keep it in shape. Facial hair with a side of #Beardgoals? Coming up.
Finding the right chinos is tough. On the one hand, you want them to offer a smart alternative to your denim, but you also don’t want to stray into dad territory, no matter how strong the fashion DILF is getting at the moment. These examples from H&M offshoot Arket tread that line effortlessly with a relaxed fit, as sly turn-up and an organic cotton construction because, guess what kiddies, caring about the environment is cool now.
G.H. Bass Duxbury Hiking Boots
You might have seen G.H. Bass Weejuns on the feet of menswear silver fox Jeff Goldblum, but the range offered by the American footwear brand goes further than just a pair of loafers. Take these hiking boots, for example, made out of a smooth nubuck suede and a chunky sole to keep you upright when the snow rears its head.
Herschel Supply Co. Cap
Despite being the bag maker on the backs of every cool kid at the skate park, Herschel Supply Co. does more than just cover carrying duties. The Canadian brand also takes those throwback stylings and pops them on a range of headwear included this five-panel snapback cap that looks like it belongs on the head of one of Stranger Things kids.
