February’s Hot List

February’s Hot List


The SLMan Hot List gives you all the inspiration, recommendations and ideas you need this month. From a dapper new campaign to a must-see documentary, here are the coolest things to check out in February…

THE BOOK: Assouline Jaeger-LeCoultre: Reverso

The latest chic coffee-table book from Assouline focuses on revered watchmaker Jaeger-LeCoultre and its iconic Reverso design. Alongside detailed photographs and drawings, legendary journo-in-the-know Nick Foulkes has lent his words to the project, tracing the history of the watch and exploring how socio-economic circumstances have catalysed its evolution. Fascinating stuff, and it looks great too.

THE COLLECTION: Officine Générale AW21

Officine Générale is an SLMan favourite thanks to its wearable, polished take on menswear. Its latest collection is no exception – AW21 might be a while off, but now we’re already looking forward to great overcoats, casual button-downs, slouchy tailored trousers and stylish outerwear.

THE HOTEL: The Nomad London

Okay, chances are The Nomad won’t now be opening its doors this month. But the most stylish new addition to the London hotel roster still deserves a mention. Part of the cool Stateside group, it sits inside the historic Bow Street Magistrates Court and Police Station, with plenty of nods to the history of its new home in some slick interiors and decadent bar and dining spaces. We suggest booking your staycation now.

THE INSTAGRAM FOLLOW: Chris John Millington

He may already be well established, but influencer Chris John Millington is getting it right like no one else at the moment. The Scottish native posts regularly from his adoptive NYC, showcasing his imitable, polished style. Part dapper gent, part tattooed hipster, we like his balanced, cool aesthetic – perfect inspo as we inch towards a new season.

THE PODCAST: The Apology Line

Once upon a time, a man who dubbed himself Mr Apology accepted calls from strangers who felt the need to confess their sins. They called anonymously to say sorry for shoplifting, adultery and, eventually, drug dealing and murder. Now his wife, Marissa Bridge, is hosting a six-part podcast series about The Apology Line and her husband’s work, the all-consuming nature of which eventually lead to his unravelling. If you need something new to binge, this is it.

Charles and Lee are a couple of Aussies who have stripped the sales patter out of men’s grooming to create an affordable, no-nonsense range of skincare that has just landed in the UK. Across the three key areas of Face, Body & Shave, they’ve channelled a decade’s worth of industry experience into a series of straightforward products with an efficacy that any coronavirus vaccine would be envious of. We’ve already repeat-ordered the creamy Charcoal Face Scrub.
