Best new menswear items in the world this week : Every week, a wealth of cool new menswear pieces crosses our desk. From the latest from Gucci to new menswear items from Moncler, here’s everything we think you should be buying (or at least everything you should put on your wish list).
Berluti Alessandro :
Originally created by Alessandro Berluti in 1895, the Alessandro Oxford remains one of the brands signature pairs of shoes and is crafted from one single piece of leather, with no stitching visible. The Edge Highlight has been designed by Kris Van Assche, is a daring take on a classic and is definitely one to add to your formal wardrobe.
Belstaff Castmaster Gilet:
Crafted in orange dry-waxed cotton, this is one easy way to nail the workwear trend we saw at the Autumn/Winter 2020 menswear shows.
Troubadour x Sunspel tote:
Troubadour has teamed up with Sunspel and the result is three bags you’re going to want to buy. Our top pick is this tote, which comes in a new technical canvas fabric that combines Sunspel’s long heritage of producing beautiful natural cotton fabrics and the technical performance of Troubadour bags.
Craig Green x Adidas Polta Akh II:
Craig Green is one of London’s most-celebrated designers, while Adidas is one of the biggest brands in the world. Put the two together and you get what is easily one of the best trainer designs of the year so far. Featuring translucent uppers and an Adidas Kamanda outsole, these are heavy on texture.
Cut from a denim twill made from organic cotton, which is cultivated and harvested from non-genetically modified plants without the use of chemical fertilisers and pesticide, these jeans not only look good, but are a lot better for the environment than a lot of other pairs out there.
Emporio Armani sweater:
Recently we’ve seen a surge in the amount of men wearing tight, waist-cinching knitwear (we’re looking at you, Harry Styles). If you want to get on board the trend, buy this super-tight ribbed sweater and you’ll be good to go.
Pangaia x Nadya Hutagalung T-shirt:
Nadya Hutagalung has committed to ensuring long-term preservation of endangered species across Africa and Asia and has made a huge impact on the illegal ivory trade and elephant poaching through her “Let Elephants Be Elephants” campaign. You can do your bit by buying this T-shirt, as 100 per cent of sale proceeds from the special-edition tees (you can get others on the site) will be donated to the Barumun Nagari Wildlife Sanctuary for the elephants, as well as to the Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme.
CP Company jacket
The CP Company goggle jacket is an iconic piece of clothing and for 2020 it has been given a slight makeover. Crafted with the signature Multi Tension Trilobate Nylon combined with an opaque Taslan warp and a brilliant trilobatic weft with a twisted cord finishing process – a technique that was a staple of early 1980s sportswear and which CP Company pioneered – this jacket is weather-resistant and also features the instantly recognisable goggle detail on the left sleeve.
Trench London classic trench
Beat the wet weather with this trench coat from cult outerwear brand Trench London. Featuring embroidered signature patches and a luxury grosgrain construction, this is one of the finest pieces of outerwear available right now.
