CHECK MATE
Men’s tailoring has never been in a better place, and for autumn designers went all-in on classic checks in soft neutral tones. Dunhill, Fendi and Off-White led the sartorial way with heritage checks in casually tailored silhouettes. Trend hounds will want check suits by Reiss and Ted Baker in muted tones paired with Chelsea boots or chunky brogues, but you can dip your toe in with a check wool coat by All Saints or even just a plaid scarf. Checks work casually, too, especially when they’re bolder
colours: standout check sweaters by Tommy Hilfiger and GANT or vibrant check trousers by Moss Bros make a strong statement, especially when contrasted with relaxed-fit streetwear shapes and your favourite sneakers.

BIG VOLUME DENIM
Praise the fashion lords - baggy jeans are back! From Heron Preston to Louis Vuitton, loose-fitting jeans are very much on the autumn/winter menu so dine out on them at McArthurGlen. Low-waisted styles by the likes of AllSaints, Levi's and Tommy Hilfiger come with a healthy dose of laidback 90s nostalgia. Look for distressed elements in a multitude of washes. The look is uber casual, which makes hoodies by Puma and adidas a no-brainer, or you can double down on denim with a vintage trucker jacket layered over a loose-fit tee. Keep your accessories on a streetwear tip, with belt bags by Coach and Calvin Klein, high tops by Kurt Geiger and Sole Trader, and finished off with a studded belt and baseball cap.

ALL PUFFED UP
Puffer jackets have been big (literally) for a few seasons now and that trend took another step forward with oversized futuristic styles in a host of vibrant colours. They’re a great investment too as you can layer them over virtually any style of outfit. Oversized short puffer jackets by Polo Ralph Lauren and Tommy Hilfiger are perfect for both smart and casual looks, whereas long-line styles by Superdry and Timberland are real statement-makers. Look for details such as funnel necks, big hoods, or interesting quilt patterns and belted details. Use the jacket colour to create a tonal look - pair a beige puffer with neutral check trousers for example. Puffer bags are a cool way to finish off the look, too, along with tonal gloves and chunky Derby shoes.

VARSITY COOL
If you want proof that you can never be too cool for school, then this season’s preppy trend is it! It’s the perfect time to flex your vintage polos with contemporary varsity jackets and plug into some 50s nostalgia. The key item is the letterman jacket, and you can find great examples in bold colours at the likes of Gant and Lacoste. Complement the jacket with straight-leg chinos by BOSS or go for a sportier look with trackpants by Adidas and Puma. Either way, keep it colourful and relaxed, tapping into collegiate icons like the striped rugby shirt. Baseball caps and high-tops by Superdry and Calvin Klein keep the streetwear cachet high and are a slick way to finish off the look.
