From fairisle bobble hats to bow ties, there’s no doubt the AW12 season has some key inspirational looks for your wardrobe. Whether you’re off to build the first snowman of the year (we can’t wait!) or have a Christmas soirée to attend, take a look at our fashion faves, for men!

HANDSOME HERITAGE

Inspired by the best of British fashion, think fairisle patterns, tweed detailing and classic leather. A must for the winter season is a fairisle jumper. The beauty of this style staple is that you don’t need to worry about matching when mixing prints is key. In this case, the tweed swatch is from Next’s Brown Wool Mix Check Gilet – a great transitional piece. Finish off with tan or chocolate leather accessories, such as brogues, a simple belt or even this leather holdall. For all the girls reading this, we all know one guy who would love a pair of Christmas socks! Perfect stocking filler, oui?

Check Scarf £22
Leather Holdall £90
White Pattern Crew Neck £32
Stripe Bobble Hat £12
Brown Plain Derby Shoes £45
Festive Fairisle Pattern Socks Three Pack £12
Brown Wool Mix Check Gilet £55

MODERN MILTARY

With all things industrial being at the height of fashion this season, camouflage print is a big must. This trapper hat is a brilliant starting point, as it goes with so many colours and styles – whether you prefer wearing dark denim and grey shades or like to stand out in traffic light orange. Other wardrobe essentials for the military trend are the black biker boots and quilted jacket – which can be teamed with a denim shirt for a casual look or smartened up with the two tone roll neck.

Camo Trapper £17
Denim Shirt £38
Cable Beanie £10
Lace Up Toe Cap Boot £40
Grey/Charcoal Twist Roll Neck £40
Black Quilted Jacket £45

PARTY-PROOF TAILORING

The name’s Bond, James Bond. Well who wouldn’t feel like an international man of mystery in this get up? With trends swaying towards British heritage and classic cuts, there’s no surprise that the decadent tuxedo is making a comeback. Add a personal touch with your choice of pocket square, a statement tie or make the look more casual with just the trousers and smart shirt.

Italia Toe Cap Brogue £68
Paisley Pocket Square £4
Signature Tuxedo Tailored Fit Suit
Jacket £110, Trousers £60, Waistcoat £50, Shirt £20, Black Velvet Bow Tie £8
