Whiley Brothers belt

Made by real Amish people just like out of Witness, the rounded loops on these artisan belts make them ideal for pairing with a smart/casual outfit. Available in black, dark brown or tan from garbstore.com at £65.

 

Ralph Lauren Black Label launch

New – for the UK – range focusing on high-end ‘urban essentials’ from the perennial favourite. Action Man bomber jackets that can be worn over a suit, slightly casual dark blazers and a magnificent pair of straight black cords stand out.

 

Barbour fingerless wool gloves

Fresh from the publicity they got from Ronnie Corbett’s South Bank Show appearance (he loved his orange V-necks), L&S release shirting to widespread clamouring. They’ve got a functional workwear influence, ironic for something you’ll wear outside the office.

 

Balenciaga zip-up leather bag

The problem with most man bags is they look too much like woman bags. This one from, ironically, the big name in ‘it’ bags for women over the last few years, is unmistakably for the chaps, slightly tech-y, and very high status. £675, brownsfashion.com

 

Winter white Supergas

The most versatile pumps around now come not only in leather, but also waterproof canvas with fur lining, so you can mercilessly sport them throughout the cold spell. And they’re only slightly more expensive than the regular ones. £49.99, oipolloi.com

 

Jil Sander hoodie

This marble-effect range from JS designer Raf Simons was one of this season’s more memorable moments on the Milan catwalk. A fantastic collector’s piece, you can get it at oki-ni.com for £779.

 

Lyle & Scott shirting

Fresh from the publicity they got from Ronnie Corbett’s South Bank Show appearance (he loved his orange V-necks), L&S release shirting to widespread clamouring. They’ve got a functional workwear influence, ironic for something you’ll wear outside the office.

 

George from ASDA chunky roll-neck

After their victory with the £25 patent shoes last year, George put the smackdown on all other catwalk trend ‘homages’ with their take on the Captain Haddock phenom. £25 (again).

 

Gimili beards

Bubbling under for a while now, it seems the trendiest way to go with your beard is full-on Joy Of Sex/Hell’s Angel/fantasy dwarf axe man with an elf for a mate. The other way is clean-shaven – FHM’s fashion desk is now suspicious of its own designer stubble.

 

Jones Bootmaker patent Chelsea boots

Indie people! Throw away the filthy daps and step into these military-inspired numbers. You’ll be wading more than ankle deep in indie ladies with their skanky tights. £175
