Reiss Douglas Dogtooth Overcoat
It’s the first day of September, which makes it just about the right time to think about investing in a quality winter coat, one you’ll never want to take off as you’re plunged into an icy tundra. This dogtooth overcoat from Reiss is a good bet to keep you looking elegant as you’re freezing your nips off underneath. Wear it with a black rollneck for maximum menswear points.

Don’t judge the rugby shirt then on Jasper alone; judge it on all the other cool guys who’ve worn the style. This slick retro-tinged version from high street store Burton would work well as a casual Sunday get-up over some relaxed denim.

It’s about time you binned those sticky, crumb-adorned joggers that you still inexplicably hang about the house in, and invest in something that doesn’t drive the ladies away when they come round for Netflix and chill. The new Mix Modal collection of loungewear from American Apparel is a great start in a silky, luxe fabric at an affordable price point.
Controlling your mane can be a nightmare some times, which is where sea salt spray comes in handy.

Woods will also leave your locks smelling of bergamot, amber and sandalwood.
