White One Star canvas trainers by CONVERSE X DSM (£70)

The best new menswear you can buy this week – August 13 9

Lovely and clean, these, aren’t they? Not for long, buster, not for long. Unless you do what’s right, and only wear these in the day, and after you’ve checked the weather forecast. Raining? Nope. Going to a bar? Nope. Spelunking? Yes, you would look very good doing it, but no, don’t, because what’s ‘looking good’ when you’ve just slipped on a rock, duffed up your nice creps and torn your Achilles at the same time? Quite a lot, sure, but still.

Hey, but these ones? These ones you could wear when it rains, or at a bar, erm, maybe not spelunking, but they’ll deal with a bit more of a pummel and probably still look good for it afterwards. Also, they’ve got a bit of an ugly/chunky aesthetic going on here, so they’re very on-trend, but crucially they haven’t gone too far with it, so you’re not going to end up looking like you’re wearing some sort of Spice Girls-era platform monstrosity. Unless you want that, of course? Nowt wrong with that. Go on, get yourself down to Cyberdog, you wacky old thing.

Maize and black copper finish Academy pack by COACH (£295)

The best new menswear you can buy this week – August 13 12

Nice little bag, here. Maybe the price tag isn’t so nice or little, but you’re getting quality with Coach, so it’s worth the investment. As long as you don’t buy it and then immediately take it spelunking.

Tapestry taping long sleeve overshirt by TOPMAN (£70)

The best new menswear you can buy this week – August 13 6

We’re getting into overshirt weather territory, everyone, so you’d better start thinking about getting a few choice ones for when our old friend “Mrs Sun” packs it in for the autumn. This one? Yes, a good, nice, great one. Do it up, leave it open, it’s entirely up to you. That’s the great thing about fashion - it’s you that dictates how you wear it. Course, putting your legs through the sleeves and wearing it like some sort of giant open-arsed baby-grow might be taking it a bit too far, but who am I to stop you?

Navy side stripe pull on trousers by NEW LOOK (£24.99)

The best new menswear you can buy this week – August 13 2

Nice trousers, got a stripe on them, get your ankles out, under thirty quid, why are you wasting time not buying them?

Single breasted mac by TURNER AND SANDERSON (£150)

The best new menswear you can buy this week – August 13 5

That is a good price for a coat. You don’t want to go too low and obviously it’s quite difficult to go too high, so a lovely little £150 will get you a good-quality mac like this one above. Coats have got to get you through a bit of a battering, so it’s worth slapping down a relatively decent bit of wedge on one. 

Also, something something blah blah another joke about spelunking that definitely won’t make anyone laugh but hey it’s the last item so let’s just punt everything at the wall and hope it sticks. Bye!
