7 MENSWEAR ITEMS YOU NEED RIGHT NOW
While we’re still holding out hope for an Indian summer, the recent cold spell has put our minds on fast forward. If there’s one good thing about this time of year, it’s picking out a fresh set of threads to welcome the dawn of A/W. The following pieces should make dressing on dark mornings a little more bearable.

Your outdoor performance will be at an all-time high in one of these Canada Goose bad boys. Come rain, snow or hail the expedition parka will protect you from any eventuality and it looks jaw-droppingly amazing too. The iconic logo, the coyote fur hood, the industrial strength padding, it’s like wearing a duvet.
Paul Smith Burgundy Yarn Knit
Walking the tightrope between cranberry and oxblood, burgundy is a signature A/W colour.
