I’m going off sneaker trends at the moment and have actually started selling many of mine, but I’m loving the look of the ROA Neals. They’re more of a low hiking/trail boot. I also find you can never go wrong with a Maison Margiela Replica trainer, and they’ve got some great colourways out at the moment. I’m mostly opting for more of a formal shoe at the moment, though – Our Legacy’s Camion boots and Paraboot Michaels are my go-tos.
We’ve been pushing ourselves with the PICANTE offering lately and have got some punchy tie-dye knits which bring a bit of colour into winter – though their cotton construction means they can be worn year round. We’ve also developed a nice winter-ready mohair blend fuzzy sweater which I think is a great piece.
THE WINTER COAT
As we get into the colder months it’s all about winter coats, and for me, it’s all about a (nearly) floor length belted wool car coat. I just picked up a great one from GANT: the Balmacaan Wool Coat. I also have my eye on one from John Simons. If my budget was unlimited, I’d invest in one from an Auralee store in Japan. The cut and cashmere blend is perfect.
THE WHITE TEE
I feel like we’re seeing a bit of a shift away from oversized boxy tees and a move towards slimmer fitting styles. Obviously anyone who watched The Bear has definitely admired Carmy’s collection of perfect fitting tees and anyone who’s really done their research will know he wears both a Merz b. Schwanen or Whitesville. Having tried both, Whitesville’s the clear winner for me. They’re hard to get yours hands on, but American Classics just off of Carnaby Street have a good stock of them – that said, they do sell quickly...
I’m loving denim at the moment – that and a good white tee is a go-to base. I’ve been loving Our Legacy’s ‘Third Cut’. It’s one of those styles I’ve decided I need in every wash. I also checked out Agolde’s new menswear denim offering recently – that brand has some great cuts and washes.
I’m loving the classic yellow-gold Rolex Day-Date. The ones with the vintage dials like Burl Birch Wood and Lapis Lazuli – they’re crazy too.
I get sent quite a lot of grooming bits and, to be honest, a lot are forgettable. Haeckels, however, always tops my list. Its Haeckels Lab products are particularly worth a shout out. I recently also got some products from Ole Henriksen and they’ve been keeping my face fresh as we head into the colder months. I think their products are pretty affordable compared to the rest too.
