Starting this week, His Style Diary will pick and feature 5 great finds each week from some of our favourite online shopping destinations for men, and tell you why you should own them.
We will try to list the prices in USD/POUNDS/SGD, and you can click on the link to go directly to the website to check out details and make your purchase. Pieces of items are usually limited, so get it before they are sold out (or before I get my hand on them!).
Here are this week’s pick from Mr Porter:
For those looking to make bold statements, Katie Eary’s latest collection had a variety of influences including the plains of South Africa and the acid house scene, and this cotton jersey sweatshirt shows the influence of both with its leopard-print motif and sportswear-inspired shape. For the coolest take, wear it with slim, dark denim and high-top sneakers.
USD495/£325.46 / Approx. S$686
Called “the coolest man in the world” by GQ, founder Jean Touitou is responsible for A.P.C.’s quietly luxurious aesthetic. The minimalist look works especially well in this navy linen bomber jacket. And every one should own at least one bomber jacket (I have 5!). This jacket is ideal for milder climes, and makes a good wardrobe staple for years to come. Pair it with favourite jeans or chinos for a casual take.
Camo… camo… camo… We love the camo print so much, and even more when it bears the Valentino stamp. There’s no hiding that Valentino has made this military camouflage-printed so cool now. This Valentino backpack, emblazoned with a blue, black and khaki interpretation of the military motif is so hip, and finished with leather trims and the brand’s signature pyramid stud detailing, it’s a stylish option for toting around your essentials.
£133.33 / Approx.S$281
The Three Peaks challenge sees hikers tackle the tallest mountains in the UK, and these New Balance sneakers are named after the highest in England, Scafell Pike, which is also in the same region as the company’s factory where they were made. Panelled in rustic tones that recall climbing gear and completed with textured Ns, this suede, leather and mesh pair brings a rugged touch to the athletic 576 shape.
USD725/£414.62 / Approx. $874
For all your SLP fans looking for an additional item for your collection, try this this metal-studded wallet by Saint Laurent for an added rebel attitude. Constructed from smooth black leather and containing a coin pouch and card slots, this useful zipped design emanates luxury. Attach it to your jeans with the chain and hook to take your weekend staples from understated to rock ‘n’ roll.
