    ASOS Duster Coat

    We've spent many an evening attempting to exhaust the depths of ASOS' vast online selection. With new looks added on a weekly basis, the range of men's fashion can be a touch... overwhelming. As such, we've called upon the expertise of their menswear design director John Mooney to select some of the site's best new offerings, starting with this versatile duster coat.

    "Ideal for those summer evenings, light weight and deconstructed, the duster jacket is the perfect carry-about jacket and throw on layer," says Mooney. "It can dress down a formal look and dress up casual."

    £65

  • The Outfit 1

    ASOS Shirt In Oversized Fit And Grid Check

    Such is the shifting rail of seasonal fashion, a shirt which would have seen you laughed off the street five years ago now sees itself reaching the heights of peek cool. 

    "Key for the summer season, both grid checked and oversized, this goes great with jeans trousers and shorts," says ASOS menswear design director John Mooney. "The ideal vacation shirt."

    £22

  • The Outfit 2

    ASOS Leather sandals

    "With a sock or not?" That’s the question being asked by ASOS' menswear design director John Mooney - and we'll leave the answer as to how you wear this leather gladiator sandal up to you (leaning heavily toward 'not'). 

    "A great modern version of the gladiator with wedged lightweight sole," says Mooney. "It can finish off a very modern contemporary look."

    £40

  • The Outfit 3

    ASOS wide leg smart trouser

    Trousers are changing. That's the wisdom offered by ASOS menswear design director John Mooney, who's picked out a new piece from the season to represent the bang-on trend.

    "As the trouser shift moves away from slim designs and leg widths get wider, our new wide crop is a great way to invest in this and new season trends."

    £30

  • The Outfit 4

    ASOS selection

    A set of summer threads assembled by ASOS' menswear design director John Mooney.

    Coat: £65
    Shirt: £22
    Sandals: £40
    Trousers: £30

  • The Outfit 5

    Ma.strum Packable Rain Tunic

    Temperamental. Short. A myth. However you choose to describe the British summer, you stand a much better chance of enjoying its unconventional charm with some MA.STRUM kit in your wardrobe.

    From hardy denim to technical outerwear, their range will stand up to everything the season can throw at you. Their owner and CEO John Sharp has helped pick out an outfit that will see you through the 'warm' months ahead.

    "An essential for the unpredictable British summertime, a lightweight in ripstop nylon that can pack away inside its own bag when not needed. An ideal throw-on when the heavens open…"

    £199

  • The Outfit 6

    Ma.Strum Multi Pocket Military Shirt

    While we can't promise you warmer weather, one aspect of summer we can bank on is more daylight hours - which always seem to translate into more time spent in beer gardens. MA.STRUM CEO John Sharp's next pick is thus an essential piece of summer work/casual wear.

    "A great shirt for the spring to summer shift, lightweight and breathable with a distinct military style that will see you from the office to your local with ease."

    £135

  • The Outfit 7

    Ma.Strum Compass Embroidery Tee

    For those occasions on when the sun finally makes an appearance, you're going to want a tee shirt that actually fits. MA.STRUM's CEO John Sharp has a personal favourite.

    "A go-to classic - a soft handle cotton tee with a subtle MA.STRUM compass embroidery to the upper chest. This is a top option worn underneath a shirt or as a standalone layer, weather permitting, of course."

    £50

  • The Outfit 8

    The summer suit from Claudio Lugli

    Well first there's the wedding of your university friend you haven't seen in god-knows how many years. Then there's that day at the races. And the awards event. And that's just June. 

    In short, you need a new suit. With their range of colourful prints and Italian sensibilities, Claudio Lugli is on hand to help out - with offerings like this fitted beige three-piece. Job done.

    £250

  • The Outfit 9

    Formal shirt by Claudio Lugli

    It's hard to get a white shirt right - a careful balancing act between a washed-out, plain affair and an over-designed reject from Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen.

    Claudio Lugli navigates this line perfectly, with subtle elements such as red threading and a hidden floral print adding to an otherwise formal staple.

    £70

  • The Outfit 10

    SUKIES SHOES by Claudio Lugli

    Pizzas, operas and arguments - all things in which should be left to the Italians, along with designing your next pair of formal shoes.

    These Sukies from Claudio Lugli are a case in point: all leather, hand painted with an embusted fringe and tassel, you may find yourself overdressing on a trip to the shops just to wear these in.

    £270

  • The Outfit 11

    HILLER TIE by AQUASCUTUM

    Matching a tie to a patterned suit can be a tricky business. Best avoid clashing geometric prints and go for something with a bit of texture, like this knitted silk number from Aquascutum. Works with any plain shirt you've got in the wardrobe - just remember to match it with a dark belt and shoes.

    £95

  • The Outfit 12

    Summer suit

    Whether its for a summer wedding or a warm weather formal, you'll never regret investing in a versatile lightweight suit. That, or you could turn up to the next barbecue looking seriously sharp.

    Suit: £250
    Shirt: £70
    Shoes: £270
    Tie: £95

  • The Outfit 13

    Laskalla Tee

    Surf's up. By which we mean, time to book yourself that beach getaway you've spent most of your Monday fantasising about. 

    To ensure you turn up on the sands looking the part, we've asked Animal's head designer, Karl Read, to select his favourite pieces from their latest line - opening with this Laskalla tee. 

    "Illustration T-shirts are one of Animal's strongest growing categories," says Read. "With a strong team of in house artists, it's not surprising to see why. This a great example of the humour that Animal is known for. Available in white and French Navy, it's a Mid fit, in a lighter weight 100 percent cotton fabric. Perfect for summer."

    £20

  • The Outfit 14

    Darwin hybrid shorts

    'Hybrid shorts' will probably conjure an image of a tragic zip-off trouser construction last seen in a charity shop circa 2001. We're happy to report that Animal's Darwin shorts are not a descendant of this wardrobe malfunction - they're far more useful, as head designer Karl Read explains:

    "With the appearance of a conventional walk short the Darwin performs just like a high performance board short. It's quick drying, lightweight, comfortable and uses stretch fabrics giving you a fully functional, versatile short whether you are in the water, or chilling out in the bar afterwards."

    £50

  • The Outfit 15

    Aeon Front Zip

    Animal are getting back into the wetsuit business. Which is good news - given that British waters are still on the cold side of freezing. Head designer Karl Read talks us through their new summer offering: 

    "The AEON includes features such as a liquidised seam system that uses a flexible specialised liquid compound to guarantee seam security, A-Lock Zip and A-Flex Pro, Contour control seams using body mapping technology, AK knee pads and a seal skin neck to prevent rubbing and rashes."

    £190

  • The Outfit 16

    Knoxe backpack

    No one enjoys having to spend an hour looking through half a mile of beach for the car keys after a day of damp surfing, only to find them in that pocket of your coat (trust us, we've done it). Best get yourself a sand-friendly bag for that seaside trip.

    "'The 'Knoxe' has a casual look with great functional features," explains Animal's head designer Karl Read. "16oz of canvas, a fold-top opening, PU trims, padded straps, a padded laptop sleeve, and waxed cotton adjustable cord side storage."

    £45

  • The Outfit 17

    Surf season

    An assortment of beachwear for both on and off the board.

    T-shirt: £20
    Shorts: £50
    Wetsuit: £190
    Bag: £45

  • The Outfit 18

    Herschel & Clarks Originals Desert Boot

    Gin and tonic. Sunshine and barbecues. Sunburn and sun cream. Fashion is getting in on the trend of strong summer partnerships, with a wealth of collaborations filling high streets. Take this pairing from outdoor specialists Herschel and Clarks Originals: their reworking the classic desert boot combines a suede upper with a smooth leather tongue and rubber crepe sole. A simple, clean shoe that can easily be dressed up or down (read: wear with jeans or something smart).

    £95

  • The Outfit 19

    UNIQLO×Michael Bastian polo shirt

    "A designer collaboration? Best hide my wallet" is a common response to the summer's biggest partnerships. Not in the case of Uniqlo's renewed line with Michael Bastian - featuring this tasty new polo shirt. A simple, inexpensive design of banded stripes and light cotton fabric, it's ideal for building up one of those embarrassing tan lines you're actually quite proud of. Here's hoping the sun sticks around long enough to make it happen.

    £14.90

  • The Outfit 20

    Nigel Cabourn x Fred Perry 1953 Half Zip Training Top

    Nigel Cabourn loves table tennis. A lot. So much so that the British fashion designer has partnered with Fred Perry to create a whole range of wiff waff-inspired threads - like this half zip training top. Made from fleece-back cotton sweat with an elasticated cuff and hem, it's an essential piece of close-fitting sports luxe.

    £150

  • The Outfit 21

    Summer collaborations

    A selection of some of the best subtle, clean collaborations from the summer's releases. Because two heads are often better than one.

    Desert boot: £95
    T-Shirt: £14.90
    Training top: £150

  • The Outfit 22

    SLIM FIT DENIM JACKET GODDARD pepe jeans

    Denim - the most ubiquitous of fabrics that is so very hard to get exactly right. This week's outfit is by no means meant to be worn all at once (quadruple denim is a look best left for '90s Justin Timberlake), but should introduce you to some new worthwhile items - like Pepe Jean's slim fit jacket. Casual, hardy and goes with just about anything.

    £265

  • The Outfit 23

    Levi's BARSTOW WESTERN SHIRT

    Once a questionable style decision, now a casual staple, the humble denim shirt has always been championed by the likes of Levi's. The Barstow Western shirt draws on the brand's American heritage western yoke details, sawtooth flap front-pockets and a snap-front closure.

    £70

  • The Outfit 24

    TOMS DARK DENIM CANVAS AVALON trainers

    Headed to the park? Best pick up a pair of these. The heavy denim canvas of these TOMS can survive a string of summer kickabouts, taking grass stains and spilt ketchup in its stride. And yes, you can wear them with jeans.

    £44.99

  • The Outfit 25

    APC New Cure Jean

    These slim cut jeans from Parisian style kings APC are made from a refined raw denim (so no washing them at 60 degrees, okay?). Styled with a higher rise, tapered leg and a narrow opening at the cuffs, they're the 'mature' denim you've been looking for.

    £135

  • The Outfit 26

    The denim selection

    A pick of denim essentials you'd do well to include in your summer wardrobe. Definitely not to be worn all at once.

    Jacket: £265
    Shirt: £70
    Shoes: £44.99
    Jeans: £135

  • The Outfit 27

    Larsson & Jennings LJX custom watch bar

    Custom. Bespoke. Words often bandied about with casual abandon as labels attempt to convince you to part ways with your cash in return for something vaguely unique.

    This week's Outfit contains a handful of the real thing - custom offerings that have to be hunted down, like the LJX bespoke bar of the Larsson & Jennings store on 53 Monmouth St, London. Available in-store only, the service allows you to match your preferred watch to a range of Swedish and British leather strap designs. A vast number of possible combinations, your only limitations will be your imagination and the depths of your pockets.

Guaranteed to be different to every other trainer on the high street.

  • The Outfit 29

    Atelier made-to-measure glasses

    "I don't suit glasses" is the oft-used line of a man easily bored by the prospect of trying on umpteen glasses with an impractically tiny mirror on hand to review the results. We don't blame you - but you shouldn't give up the search. Instead, point your browser over to the custom-made designs of Atelier: their webcam system will measure your face from the comfort of your desk, building a set of glasses that promise the prefect fit. 

    From £255

  • The Outfit 30

You should check out the custom service of Spoke: as well as picking your waist and leg measurements you're able to dictate your 'build', adjusting for larger thighs or keeping things close to your leg - all without the awkward process of having a tape measure graze your plums.

  • The Outfit 32

    STANTON SHORT IN HEATHERED IRISH LINEN By J Crew

    It's time to start talking about shorts. Not wearing them - but rather flagging up that those tired old denim cutoffs you've been wheeling out for the last few summers need binning. Summer's high streets are set to be filled with lightweight, breathable cottons and linens, like this Stanton Short by J Crew. With a soft rumpled, look, they're set to become the anchor of your summer look.

    £85

    Added detail: Made with Irish linen from Baird McNutt, they're supposed to look a little worn in (which means you don't have to feel guilty about not ironing them). 

  • The Outfit 33

    Long Sleeve Linen Shirt by Uniqlo

    You're right, linen is a bit of a faff to look after. Which is why Uniqlo set about searching for a material that wouldn't buckle at the first sign of a machine wash. The result? A soft French linen, lightweight but capable of a quick tumble.

    £29.90

    Added detail: Keep it lose - don't bother tucking a linen shirt in or you're just asking for creases. Oh, and it's available in 12 colours, if you're picky.

  • The Outfit 34

    Aviator Classic by Ray-Ban

    Quite possibly the most iconic sunglasses design on the shelf, you can think of this is a moment of sun-inspired indulgence. Sure £125 is a lot to spend on some glass and metal, but when the metal is gold and the glass is UV protected, it's a worthwhile investment. First launched in 1937, it's not like they're going to go out of style.

    £125

    Added detail: The Ray-Ban online store offers a full customising service, allowing you to change the colour of the frame, lenses and frame tips. Engraving included as standard.

  • The Outfit 35

    Slaten Free Denim Canvas Shoe by Clarks

    You know the score - you need to attend to a barbecue-related incident at the end of the garden and you can't be bothered to tie the laces on your trainers to race down there. In steps (literally) the Slaten Free: a step-down feature on the heel lets you kick them on and off with ease, while a breathable footbed lets you get away sans socks. The perfect shoe for those of you who spend half of summer barefoot. 

    £45

    Added detail: Not a fan of denim shoes? Their available in olive as well.

  • The Outfit 36

    Light layers

    With the temperatures gradually rising, time to thin our your layers in favour of some linen and light accessories. Best take a brolly, just to be safe.

    Shorts: £85
    Shirt: £29.90
    Glasses: £125
    Shoes: £45

  • The Outfit 37

    Nike Free 4.0 Flyknit

    The regret is probably starting to kick in now, but that's not going to change the fact that the summer charity run you signed up is now cresting the horizon. This week's Outfit won't work miracles, but it could help in getting you over the line. Take these Nike Free 4.0 Flyknit trainers: super lightweight, its knitted construction hugs your foot for maximum support, while the contoured midsole encourages a natural footstrike. 

    £110

    Added detail: The hexagonal 'flex' grooves that cover the sole of these runners help you foot move naturally in every direction. So, less sore feet and blisters. And they only weigh 173 grams (which isn't much). 

  • The Outfit 38

    Gear Shift Boxers by 2UNDR

    Chaffing: the uncomfortable nemesis of the long distance runner. If a hefty dose of talcum powder isn't seeing you through your chosen distance, time to invest in a pair of these. The Gear Shift underwear does just that, shifting your gear out of harms way with the JoeyPouch - a pocket of wicking fabric that prevents skin-on-skin contact.

    £24.99

    Added detail: The Spandex-blend fabric and athletic cut give the Gear Shift a comfortable, compression-like fit. 

  • The Outfit 39

    A400 top by Skins

    In addition to looking like something Bruce Wayne might slip into late at night, the SKINS A400 t-shirt has much fabric tech squeezed into it as the average Batsuit.

    Breathable technology keeps you warm when it's cold and cool when it's hot (we don't know how either, but it works), while silicone grippers on the hems stop it from riding up - so no more adjusting mid-race. Something called "warp knit fabric construction" also cuts out any risk of chaffing.

    £80

    Added detail: It'll help keep you alive as well - 360-degree reflectivity from glass beads make it easy for drivers to see you on your night runs

  • The Outfit 40

    Merino Wool running shorts by Ashmei

    Forget your plastic-based synthetic fabrics, Ashmei has stuck with good old fashioned wool to keep you comfortable on your run. A 100 percent merino wool layer sits next to your skin, keeping you cool when it's hot and warm when it's cold. A lightweight microfibre over-short layer gives added protection (and keeps you decent).

    £80

    Added detail: A pocket sits at the rear of the shorts for your keys and phone. Just remember to take them out before collapsing on a park bench.

  • The Outfit 41

    Gallivant suitcase by Reiss x SteamLine

    Spring is in. The chaps at Greenwich said so. So if you haven't already, it's time to start considering your summer city breaks and sunny escapades. While we'll leave the destination up to you, best head in the direction of Reiss for your luggage solution. Their new collaboration with SteamLine includes this classy carry-on: vulcanised fibre board, studded leather and metal details, the Gallivant could be the best-looking item you take on holiday. 

    £395

    Added detail: "But can I use it as cabin luggage?" At 23 inches by 15.7 inches by 7.8 inches, it should squeeze in to most overhead allowances.  

  • The Outfit 42

    Hook Line and Sinker Wash Bag

    Passport? Check. Swimming trunks? Check. Wash kit? You'll be sure to remember this oft overlooked essential if you're packing this neat roll. The angling-themed Hook Line and Sinker bag is made from a hardy khaki canvas with four different compartment for your toiletries. 

    £35

    Added detail: True to its name, a handy hook lets you hang this over your sink(er). 

  • The Outfit 43

    Bulldog swimming short by Orlebar Brown

    Since Orlebar Brown set up shop some eight years ago, they've moved men's swim wear from the shallow end of tragic to the deep end of style. Their new line includes a set of prints from Italian specialist Emilio Pucci, bringing some colourful flair to the poolside. To be worn with a tan and relaxed expression.

    £225

    Added detail: Made from pure cotton, with metal zip fastenings and waistband, these double as shorts for wearing to the bar.

  • The Outfit 44

    UNIVERSITY CLASSICS Espadrilles by Toms

    While we remain firmly in sock season in the UK, the warm climbs of your next break might allow you to crack out some lighter footwear. Consider spilling the latest Toms espadrilles into your bag - easily packed, with a canvas upper and latex arch support, they're perfect for the beach or the hotel buffet. 

    £39.99

    Added detail: With a suede insole, these won't fall apart on your second trip out like your last pair of flip flops.

    WOVEN COTTON JACKET By Our Legacy

    There's a sniff of spring on the air. Best not inhale too hard though, else it'll be gone within the week. A much more suitable form of preparation would be in netting yourself a new warm weather jacket, like this woven cotton number by Our Legacy. Minimalist, lightweight, this is perfect for slipping over a tee or casual shirt.

    £160

    Added detail: A clean design, the only extra features are a single-button collar, button cuffs and breast pocket (which we forbid you from using for your pens).

  • The Outfit 52

    Rhapsody Sunglasses by Hook LDN

Sturdy three-barrel hinges, acetate build and available in a range of conservative colours.

    2-EYE DOUBLE SOLE boat shoe by Sperry Top-Sider

    £95

    Added detail: While you'll want to avoid getting any water on the suede upper, the clever wave-siped bottom soles provide plenty of grip on slippery surfaces.

    Adidas Jog-On Tee SPZL

    Add inches

    "It's so hard to find the right sizes when you're over six foot" is a complaint anyone under six foot will never, ever sympathise with. It's like moaning you can't find a wallet big enough for your money. 

    This week we're looking to help the vertically challenge to 'dress taller' - simple steps that can lend an inch of confidence.

    First up is footwear. Ditch immature trainers and go formal - the solid heel of a dress shoe can add a good half inch of height. These brogues by Kurt Geiger are a subtle, smart option.

    £45

    Added detail: Also available in a tan and brown

  • The Outfit 126

    Keep details high

    Another key element to dressing tall is keeping people's attention to your upper body. While you could take to wearing a parrot on your shoulder, a much simpler step would be wearing an eye-catching pocket square in a jacket pocket. 

    Amazon's Trafalgar Square print is a brilliant option: depending on your chosen fold, you can play on several different colours in this busy print.

    £25

    Added detail: It's 100 percent silk, so best think twice before blowing your nose on it

  • The Outfit 127

    Know your fit

    Unless you're looking to resurrect a 90's grunge look (please don't), a man looking to dress tall should never wear baggy clothes. Shop around to find a brand whose 'Medium' or 'Small' fits you perfectly - particularly in the case of shirts. If you're feeling flush, get yourself a tailored set. 

    Pink have an exhaustive range available, with a mixture of sleeve lengths and collar sizes to ensure your frame isn't smothered in cloth.

    £69

    Added detail: The two-fold cotton of this Taio classic fit ensures you won't overheat 

  • The Outfit 128

    Stay monochromatic

    Loud colours will grab attention - the last thing you want to do if you're looking to conceal a lack of height. Best to avoid visual clutter and stick to monochromatic colour schemes, with darker colours lower down (it's supposed to help a viewer's eye travel upwards). 

    Made from a hard-wearing washed cotton, these petrol chinos from SPOKE are ideal. 

    £79

    Added detail: To help find that perfect fit around the thigh, SPOKE trousers are available in three builds. Check out their fitting guide for help.

  • The Outfit 129

    A guide to dressing tall

    So in summary, if you're looking to make the most of the height you've been given: wear formal shoes, keep details high up the body, find the perfect fit and stick to monochromatic tones. It also helps if you don't stand next to the tallest person in the room.

    Shoes: £45
    Pocket square: £25
    Shirt: £69
    Trousers: £79

  • The Outfit 130

    Leather wallet by Launer

    Who said wallets were supposed to be boring? Probably no one, but we're still quite taken by this multicolour leather wallet from Launer. Made from soft calf leather (the cow, not the lower leg) and is just about the classiest thing you can fit in your pocket. 

    £154

    Added detail: There are eight card slots and two note sections. We counted.

  • The Outfit 131

    £45

    Added detail: Leather, with a silver toned buckle, the neat-but-namedropping Polo logo is covered up once you tuck the belt through the loop

  • The Outfit 132

    Harris Tweed iPad case by John Lewis

    Having just sunk a bunch of cash on your new iPad, it'd be an awful shame for it to get scratched to ribbons by a set of stray keys. John Lewis' impossibly stylish Harris Tweed case does a fine job of keeping your tech safe without emptying your wallet (cheaper than an official Apple cover, but far less dull).

    £40

    Added detail: The 100 percent wool lining is large enough to cradle every iteration of the iPad to date

  • The Outfit 133

    Walnut and leather iPhone 6 case

    While we could start a long (and dull) debate as to whether Apple's phones are the most attractive around, it's a known fact their handsets boast the most attractive cases. Top of the iPhone 6 protectors is Grovemade's walnut and leather cradle: walnut surrounds the case while leather hugs the front and back.

    £27.50

  • The Outfit 137

    Fair Isle Knit Boot Slippers by John Lewis

    £25

    Added detail: No, these aren't made from flimsy wool but far hardier acrylic

  • The Outfit 141

    Huntsman extra-strength umbrella by Fulton

    Umbrellas are, by and large, a pain in the arse. They collapse at the slightest hint of a breeze and invariably snap a spoke in their second week. Yet they're something of a necessity when the weather forecast is as accurate as sticking a wet finger in the air. Fulton's brollies are made of harder stuff - literally. Double-ribbed and sporting a 14mm steel construction, this will last longer than your scarf and hat when the wind picks up.

    Added detail: Crafted from wool sourced from Yorkshire's Alfred Brown mill, best steer clear of the upcoming buffet spreads if you're hoping to keep the tailored fit come December.

  • The Outfit 146

    Grey check waistcoat by Reiss

    There's a lot to be said for a well-fitted waistcoat. It hides the awkward overspill of a shirt, creates a tighter profile and looks immaculately sharp when worn with a matching suit. So if you do invest in the Galata suit, be sure to add this matching waistcoat.

    £125 

    Added detail: Made from a wool that hails from Yorkshire's Alfred Brown mill, were sure you don't need reminding to leave the bottom button undone.

    £45

    Added detail: A slim fit build, you're going to want to make sure you know your collar size before ordering one of these. Half an inch can make all the difference between the perfect fit and a baggy mess. 

  • The Outfit 148

    Eastwood Knitted Tie

    One of the few perks of the weather turning dismal and cold is that it lets you mix things up with your neck tie. This knitted number from Eastwood looks positively cosy compared to your usual silk options. 

    £69

    Added detail: Best matched with a slim fitting shirt, a knitted tie doesn't suit a big knot. Think half Windsor or smaller.

    Having now recovered from your Ryder Cup celebrations, it's time you headed back down to the driving range to iron out that pesky draw.

    £44.95

    Added detail: Made from a quickdry fabric to help keep you cool for that tricky putt on the par 3, you'll be glad to know it comes in colours other than white. We'd still advise against the shocking pink.

    Oi Polloi Selection

    We'll admit, we're buried under Autumn/Winter 2014 releases at present. Our inbox resembles a chunky knit sorting pile. As such, we've called upon the wisdom of Stephen Sanderson, director and owner of Manchester's foremost menswear retailer Oi Polloi, to guide us through his favourite autumnal picks - starting with this APC Mac Dos raglan in Tabac.

    "A super good sixties wool overcoat," explains Sanderson. "Not the cheapest, not the most expensive, this one's so classic it's never going to date (ever)."

    £395

    Added detail: A blend of 70 percent wool, 20 percent polyamide and 10 percent cashmere, this is an investment piece of the highest quality. And did we mention how good it looks?

  • The Outfit 171

    Folk Rib's jumper

    Oi Polloi's Stephen Sanderson continues with his selection from the Autumn/Winter 2014 range. Today's pick - some simplistic comfort.

    "A clean simple ribbed jumper," says Sanderson. "Not too chunky, raglan sleeves - easy."

    £165

    Added detail: The jumper's wool fabric is the "Oh my word, I can't stop touching it" kind of soft. You'll have to take our word for it.

  • The Outfit 172

    Levi's vintage 606 rigid jeans

    Need some new denim? There's only one way to go.

    "Slim dry denim; clean, no fuss," says Sanderson. "These are a great fitting pair of jeans that I wear myself. And I've got a clothes shop (just saying)."

    £155

    Added detail: The 606 vintage range aren't your usual Levi's. Designed for style rather than work, they have seven belt loops instead of the usual five, and use slightly different stitching.

  • The Outfit 173

    Sanders Marylebone Chelsea boots

    Stephen Sanderson rounds off his pick of Oi Polloi's Autumn/Winter 2014 range with one of the finest Chelsea boots money can buy.

    Sparring gloves by Lonsdale

    Ever been boxing? A demanding, brutal sport, it'll strip off fat, expose your fitness for what it is and put your body through hell - and that's just the training.

    With interest in this fine sport set to pique on Saturday night as Floyd Mayweather takes on Marcus Maidana for the second time in four months, we thought we'd compile a boxing outfit for those of you looking to step into the ring to test your mettle. As well as looking the part, these genuine leather sparring gloves from Lonsdale will help protect your knuckles from a battering.

    Added detail: An extra dense layer of inner foam lets you work the pads for hours at at time - even if the rest of your body lets you down.

    £49.99

    Added detail: A construction of suede overlays and a breathable mesh make sure that these boots won't stink out your kit bag after a session.

  • The Outfit 177

    Lonsdale Boxing Shorts

    Unless you're capable of handling yourself over 10 rounds, you're not going to want a set of head-turning custom made silk shorts. It's akin to turning up to a football match in brilliant pink boots and proceeding to score and own goal. For now then, you'd do well to consider these waist-hugging options from Lonsdale.

    £6.99

    Added detail: That wide elasticated waistband hides an internal drawcord, making sure these shorts won't go down in the third, even if you do.

  • The Outfit 178

    Nike Pro Combat Sleeveless Compression Top

    Boxing hurts. Besides the obvious pains of an over-enthusiastic sparring partner, muscle groups around your shoulders, chest and back can sing with agony the morning after a training session.

    £36

    Added detail: The four-way stretch fabric won't inhibit the movement of your ducking and weaving.

    September is here, ushering in overcast skies and wall-to-wall forecasts of drizzle. But it's not all bad - the football is back for a start, as are some much needed warm wardrobe fillers.

    £199

    Added detail: The 6oz Sylkoil waxed cotton outer layer will keep the bulk of Autumn at bay.

  • The Outfit 181

    Lightweight twill red plaid shirt by Gap

This lightweight twill option from Gap is just the ticket.

    £34.95

    Added detail: The soft brushed twill is 100 percent cotton with a tailored fit.

  • The Outfit 182

    Chukka boot by Rockport

    Autumnal weather forecasts are something of a dark art - no matter what the MET Office might think the skies are going to do, there's inevitably a puddle or five ready to ruin a lesser shoe. Rockport's lightweight Chukka boot is more than capable of handling any stealthy downpours the next few months might hold in store.

    £150

    Added detail: This fetching shade is made all the more desirable once you discover its name - Bitter Chocolate. It also comes in a shade of 'Ship's Biscuit' (light brown).

    501 Original Fit One Wash jeans by Levi

    We'd be lying if we said Levi's 501s were a '90s staple. They're a trouser staple, an essential cut that's been around since the dawn of... well, jeans. Whether you're dressing down a shirt and jacket or just looking for something comfortable and casual, every man needs a pair of 501s in his wardrobe.

    £70

    Added detail: To make the most of your Levi's (or any high-quality jeans) make sure you machine wash them on a cold wash - or even better, by hand.

    Equipment Running Guidance 93 by adidas Originals

    We know, we didn't think enough time had passed for fashion to turn to the '90s in a moment of nostalgic revival either. But two decades have passed since adidas first unleashed the Equipment Running Guidance on the world's pavements - and they're well due a revisit.

  • The Outfit 187

    Ben Sherman Field Jacket

    If you ask us, Ben Sherman have always had something of the '90s about them. This Field Jacket would look quite at home in the videos of Blur or Oasis, or hanging on your coat rack ready for a night moodily complaining about the "good old days of music".

    £130

    Added detail: The jacket is coated with a dry wax, because British weather is always wet, no matter the decade.

  • The Outfit 188

    Denim Shirt by Uniqlo

    It's okay, double denim is allowed. We asked the guy who knows a thing or two about London Fashion Week and he said it was definitely in. Which is great, since we could do with having a few of Uniqlo's latest denim shirts in our wardrobe: clean, simple, they'll pair with chinos or jeans (for the moment).

    £19.90

    Added detail: If deep indigo was never your thing in the '90s, you can go for a darker shade of black or navy.

    £195

    Added detail: Yes, that is a marbled pocket square in the breast pocket. The range also offers Paisley and patterned prints if marble isn't your thing.

  • The Outfit 193

    Vintage 'Clerkenwell 1946' Strap Watch by Accurist

    There's an unhealthy office culture of 'one-upmanship' when it comes to wrist watches. Loud, brash and expensive metallic hunks aren't worthy of the wrist room - a simple face paired with a minimal strap is the way to go. The vintage Clerkenwell 1946 by Accurist is a prime example of a clean watch that'll dress with just about anything.

    £60

    Added detail: If the stainless steel casement doesn't appeal, you could always try the gold or rose-gold tone on for size.

  • The Outfit 195

    adidas 11Pro SG Football boots

    We hate to sound like a jaded pundit, but football boots are starting to get silly. Pink, plastic and paper-thin, the majority of new releases offer a more substantial price tag than they do material.

    The 11Pro Soft Ground boot by adidas is a slice of sensible soccer in a world of fantasy football. A calf leather upper that offers your foot some protection with a footbed of screw-in and moulded studs, this is one for the 'complete' footballer.

    £130

    Added detail: While traditional, there's some new tech in there as well. A memory foam inner moulds itself to your foot for the perfect fit.

  • The Outfit 196

    Nike Mercurial Flylite shin pads

    Let's get this straight - shin pads aren't glamorous. They're dull, hidden away and essential in giving you the confidence to go for that 50-50 ball. Nike's new Mercurial Flylite pads are lightweight enough that you forget you're wearing them and strong enough to take a full crunching tackle, with a structure designed to spread the impact. They're the most technically accomplished shin guards money can buy.

    £40

    Added detail: A breathable, 'Dri-FIT' fabric holds the pad in place, wicking away sweat and keeping you dry.

    £195

    "This low line crew neck tee is a perfect complement to a blazer or bomber jacket with its neck line detail", says Daniel Rhone. "There is of course a boundary with the drop of the neck line which you shouldn't go below. Reference the gentlemen on Geordie Shore if you're unclear."

    £70

    Added detail: Got too many white t-shirts? We don't blame you. It's also available in blue.

  • The Outfit 203

    Valentino 'Rockrunner' trainer

    "Pretty much every top designer is incorporating a sports shoe into their seasons collection at the moment", says Daniel Rhone. "The Rockrunner sneaker is one of the best looking around out of the luxury bunch. Based on an 80s running shoe, the sleek silhouette allows you to wear with a turned up denim or a tailored trouser with the same slick, desired effect."

    £355

    Added detail: With nylon, leather and rubber crammed into these luxury Rockrunners, these trainers are destined for the least sporty of uses.

    Seamless Race t-shirt by Odlo

    While Odlo's race t-shirt may sound like it's offering flattering praise of your latest triathlon performance, the name actually alludes to the way in which this high tech top fits together.

    £18.60

    Added detail: The fancy fibres in the t-shirt's fabric even help cut down on odours.

  • The Outfit 212
