Work hard, play hard
This season demands hard-working, versatile pieces that adapt to the weather, whatever it brings. Discover autumn’s latest arrivals to keep you looking stylish while you work and play.
If efficiency is your maxim, then this water-repellent gilet by BOSS is your answer to three major menswear trends this season: utility vests, functional outerwear and all-over red. Nail the latter by pairing with a perfectly matching red sweater and chinos for extra preppy points. It’s your ideal ‘Sunday lunch followed by a stroll in the park’ look.
While bold hues certainly make a statement, you can still leave an impression with a neutral print. Not just for practising manoeuvres on muddy fields, camouflage was a huge spring/summer 2020 moment and it’s set to return next year. Why not transition through the next two seasons with this lightweight but hardy ‘M65 combat jacket’ from Polo Ralph Lauren, which combines S/S camo with another perennial favourite that will be back in 2021 – the utility trend.
Autumn may be a season of graceful change and falling leaves, but it’s also one that brings gusty showers and bitter winds. Make them yesterday’s problem with this technical jacket from Under Armour that combines its water-repellent and windproof design details with ColdGear® Infrared technology that helps to retain body heat, while sacrificing none of the style you want for a new season outerwear pick.
Be seen in style
Never has getting outdoors to exercise been so important, but the last thing you need is for the weather to stop you in your tracks. Choose your autumn active wear with care and no longer will the elements have any say in your plans! ASICS’ cool-weather running jacket is an ideal choice for sprinting in the gloomy early mornings or the evening shadows alike, plus acid neons are right on trend for next year’s spring/summer collections…

Shearling and sherpa were a key player in the men’s fashion weeks’ Autumn/Winter 2020 collections. Give a nod to the trend while keeping it neutral and functional with this goes-with-everything jacket from Levi’s®. Its perfect cross-seasonal colour and sherpa lining mean you’ll stay cosy for years in a design classic, and when combined with a timeless denim shirt, you’ll be smashing the season’s 1970s trend too.
Make a statement
Let the jacket do the talking with Michael Kors’ graphic-print, zip-up hooded jacket. It may be one for the brave, but it’s also sure to earn you some serious style points. All-over prints were a popular trend at men’s fashion weeks and the clever pattern on this design disguises the pockets and detailing that also makes it super functional for autumn.
Perhaps the most versatile outerwear for the season, the Timberland Mount Crescent jacket is actually two pieces in one: a lightweight waterproof outer layer with a fleece inner shell made from recycled materials that can be detached and worn alone. Ideal for transitioning between the milder seasons, it also gives you more options when selecting your jacket according to the forecast.
