The best new menswear you can buy this week – May 14 6

Items curated by Itunu Oke

Enjoy putting clothes on, do you? Good, because actively not doing that can get you in a spot of bother with the authorities if you’re not careful. So put the clothes on, and you’re all set. 

But which clothes? Which exact clothes? Well, try these ones on for size:

Barbour navy camo button thru (£139)

The best new menswear you can buy this week – May 14 9

Want to hide in a swimming pool? This is the top for you. Want to stay on dry land and simply look quite nice doing it? This is also the top for you. It’s from iconic British brand Barbour, and as such, it’ll handle this iconic British weather quite nicely, too.

Lacoste green and white striped L.12.12 1980’s revival 85th anniversary limited edition pique polo shirt (£95)

The best new menswear you can buy this week – May 14 7

Lovely stuff, this. Inspired by the Lacoste ‘80s archives, it’s a spin on the brand’s classic polo, but with a fancy bit of stripey detailing for your pleasure. Get your white chinos out, pop your wayfarers on and get yourself on a yacht immediately.

Reiss stone casual button through jacket (£225)

The best new menswear you can buy this week – May 14 8

This smart and sturdy jacket is just begging for someone to spill red wine all over it, but don’t let that put you off grabbing it. It’s summer, so this colour is given the go-ahead, no matter where on your body you’re wearing it. Just keep your eye out for any unsteady Merlot-Margarets in your vicinity.

Have A Good Time white blue big frame t shirt (£50)

The best new menswear you can buy this week – May 14

A t-shirt with a positive slogan? Here’s one for ya! You shouldn’t really need to spread this message, but it can’t hurt, can it?

Timex archive camper MK1 metal watch (£89)

The best new menswear you can buy this week – May 14 5

Smart, simple and retro, this re-issue of the classic US army MK1 is a lovely bit of nostalgia to snap round that wrist of yours. Also, it means you don’t have to get your phone out to check what time it is - watches eh?

MKI Miyuki-Zoku olive stretch cotton jacket (£65)

The best new menswear you can buy this week – May 14 4

One thing you don’t have enough of, is overshirts. They are perfect for when you don’t have time to actually think about what to wear. Throw on one of these babies over the top and chances are you’ll be in the clear. Absolutely essential, they are - but you can’t go around wearing the same one every day, so shell out for a few more…

Buy here

Paul Smith blue stripe short-sleeve shirt with ‘Tuna’ print chest pocket (£195)

The best new menswear you can buy this week – May 14 3

“There’s something fishy about this shirt,” you could say, to whoever is sitting next to you on the bus, leaning in closer, “Something… mighty FISHY.”

Boohoo Man X Dele emerald satin bomber jacket with chest embroidery (£35)

The best new menswear you can buy this week – May 14 2

A satin bomber might seem like a bit of a fancy pants purchase, but this one is far more understated than you may have guessed. A nice colour, a little stripe of sleeve detail, and a right old cool dude inside it - and all for only 35 smackers.

Fred Perry X Miles Kane white bowling shirt (£75)

The best new menswear you can buy this week – May 14 1

What you’re going to need to be doing this summer is getting your hands on a shirt with a revere collar. This classic style is back in a big way, and when it’s hotter than the sun, there’s nothing quite like airing out a bit more of that neck of yours (because you’re not going to be wearing a v-neck now, are you?).

Pentatonic Bonotto camo wallet (£35)

The best new menswear you can buy this week – May 14 10

This is what you keep that bit of plastic that you are going to use to buy something on this page, isn’t it? If it’s not and your card is currently in some sort of terrifying limbo, then buy this - it’s so very simple, is life.
