The menswear we want this week

Another week, another set of style steals...

With another week to look forward to, here’s our weekly round-up of the best of new menswear, so expect style staples and statement-making pieces from our favourite brands and makers. What’s more, by adhering to some small snippets of advice, you’ll be able to sport them with not only considered confidence but an easy air of cool. However, they’re not going to stay on the e-shelves for long…

Mr P ‘Health in Mind’ printed melange cotton t-shirt

Last week, Mr Porter launched its Health in Mind initiative with a lot of the proceeds being donated to The Movember Foundation. Designed in collaboration with Jerry Lorenzo, the extremely cool founder of the LA-based label Fear of God, the scribble of the word ‘compassion’ was designed by his children. It’s a quality that he looks for and appreciates in others, which we, The Jackal, are right behind. We all need to be better humans to each other, and while we’ve got a long way to go, this is a small step in the right direction and also a reminder that we should all show more compassion towards each other.

Orlebar Brown ‘OB Collection’ black lightweight jacket

Orlebar Brown has just released its new collection titled ‘OB Black’. Taking inspiration from the black sands of Hawaii’s Punalu’u beach, the designers at the much-loved lifestyle brand have put together a succinct edit – including shorts, gilets, tracksuits, shirts and outerwear – with an emphasis on technical and functional materials. The lightweight, showerproof cagoule jacket is our pick, with a multitude of pockets to safely store valuables when on the move, plus an adjustable hood and waist. Elsewhere, there’s a longer hem at the back to keep your bum try, and reinforced seams and tapes, giving you a weather-defying and stylish outerwear staple to take on the impending dour weather. Be sure to check out the rest of the collection, too.

Sebago x Pendleton ‘Tatanka’ boots and ‘Tucson’ blanket

You might now Sebago for its boat-appropriate Topsiders, but the brand doesn’t just craft footwear for aquatic pursuits – it also crafts for the land, as seen in its latest collaboration with Pendleton. The shoemaker has teamed up with near-legendary Stateside textile manufacturer on a selection of styles that combine three of the brand’s rugged Campside silhouettes with three fabrics inspired by those of Native American communities (side note: since Pendleton was founded in 1893, the company has had a long history working together with indigenous tribes). Better yet, each of the boots has a co-ordinating blanket – good news for those already bedding down for cosy season.

Frescobol Carioco navy pyjama shirt 

Feeling fed up with the weather? Can’t hack it and fancy a holiday? Go for it, just make sure you pack a couple pieces from Frescobol Carioca’s new Resort collection. The collection itself is inspired by Lygia Clark – an artist that should be on your radar – who played a central role in the Neo-Concreto movement which championed geometric shapes and believed that art was subjective and organic during the Fifties and through much of the Sixties. With a contrasting white piping running down the placket and on the pyjama collar and sleeves, this is a chic shirt to be worn on warm evenings abroad with a pair of tailored white trousers and neutral espadrilles.

 

C.QP ‘Atlon’ trainers

If you think the current crop of bonkers ‘ugly’ trainers is, well, just a bit ugly, don’t worry – there are still plenty of sneaker brands out there pushing the envelope while still keeping things stylish. Swedish shoemaker C.QP is a classic example, especially its new ‘Atlon’, which brings a chunkier, on-trend vibe to a silhouette that’s still superbly sleek. Of the four colours on offer, we especially love this deliciously autumnal shade of deep green.

Tod’s polished penny loafers

Tod’s celebrates its 100th anniversary next year. In that century, the Milanese brand has created many silhouettes, but the shoemaker is perhaps most famous for its ever-stylish Gommino loafer – a driving shoe that’s instantly recognisable from the small rubber pebbles on the sole and heel. However, this season it’s introduced a penny loafer that plays on the Gommino’s strengths and features a chunky sole with exaggerated pebbles in the centre. Made from a polished calf leather, it will grant you access into the most formal of establishments, but looks just as at home in a trendy East London pub with washed-out denim jeans and white socks.

Katharine Hamnett ‘Dante’ camel organic cotton shirt

Katharine Hamnett is a bit of a hero in the fashion industry. All of her work is politically charged in one way or another, and she’s recognised by her pioneering slogans that have been printed on T-shirts and crewnecks for several decades (there’s a great story about her infiltrating Number 10 during the Thatcher years with a T-shirt with a nuclear missile protest message). However, she doesn’t just do slogan T-shirts, as she also has a lovely offering of outerwear, trousers and shirting. Here, we have a new piece for the season, a boxy-fit overshirt made from an organic and soft cotton moleskin in a delicious shade of camel.

Aimé Leon Dore cashmere sweater

Based in New York, Aimé Leon Dore has over the last few seasons been making a bit of a name for itself. Channeling sportswear and classic style, this ready-to-wear label champions bold colours, luxurious fabrics and creates contemporary clothing that we all want. Here we have its new cashmere crewneck sweater that’s simple and striking. With ribbed cuffs and hem, it has a  a raglan shoulder for extra comfort making a great option for cold days and nights ahead.

Pantalino Torino 01 slim fit corduroy trousers

When a brand makes one product, and one product only, you can be rest assured (most of the time) that it’s going to be good. Turin-based Pantalino Torino is a very respected trouser specialist that doesn’t try or claim to be anything else. The range is vast, and they’ve just introduced a slim-fitting white corduroy trouser with a proper cuff and single reverse pleat. Rock them with a pair of penny loafers, like the Tod’s pair above, a chambray denim shirt and a navy blazer for a chic look.
