must have shirt nanuska chic geek men's mr porter best

This new season shirt has already been trolling me around social media. It's got something of the Bode vibes, which is all good, and from what I'm seeing looks even better on. You can't have enough embroidery atm.

Wear it open, over a vest, or closed with wide trousers à la King & Tuckfield.

menswear product of the week bode camp collar patchwork shirt mr porter buyI always like to camp it up this time of year - with a camp collar shirt, of course! - and there is nothing camper than this patchwork shirt from Bode. Emily Adams Bode is a New York based designer using vintage fabrics and techniques to produce an eclectic men’s label known for its unique feeling and style. The prices aren’t crazy for ‘designer’ either, especially when you consider some of the hand-work.

Like a classic American quilt, this handmade shirt is cut in a boxy shaped  individually patchworked, so no two are exactly the same. It will be quickly become an antique-like piece in your wardrobe.

Wear with generous shorts, coloured sports socks - Keith Haring, anyone?! - and plimsolls.

menswear product of the week stella mccartney men's disney fantasia silk trousersWhile Stella recently ditched 'menswear', she has realised the commercial scope of unisex and her new Disney collection should appeal to everyman (person!).

Her new 'Stella McCartney Presents Disney Fantasia' collaboration is where the British luxury house meets the House of Mouse. Made from regenerated, repurposed and recycled materials in never-before-seen Fantasia prints and new original graphics, the new collection is a blend on fluid, lightweight and transparent fabrics.

Silk is very much the material du jour for men, right now. It holds colour so well and adds a fluidity and nonchalance to dressing. The almost circus posters on these trousers work well on their generous proportions and give a modern waftiness to any look. It isn't too Disneyfied, which is a collaboration that has been done to death.

best menswear products in the world keith haring H&M socks collection

If you've been enjoying The Andy Warhol Diaries on Netflix, you'd have noticed Keith Haring appear as we hit the graffiti strewn, money hungry 1980s.  Seemingly, a fan of the limelight, Haring had a quirky sense of style with his round glasses and curly hair which matched his energetic doodles.

The Swedish fashion giant, H&M, has just released a fun collection in collaboration with the Keith Haring Foundation. His famous stick men adorn everything from fleeces to T-Shirts. These socks are a pocket money addition to any footwear and literally radiate LOVE!

men's jil sander colour block knit harvey nichols

There's a bit of a buzz around the Jil Sander label at the moment. The label has had more comebacks than Cher, so I usually reserve judgement until I actually see it in a store. Now under the umbrella of Diesel's Only The Brave fashion conglomerate since 2021 (They usually ruin most brands FYI), this jumper was in Harvey Nichols and I liked the strict nautical feeling that makes this feel like something from the '90s and, as such, timeless.

A simple, oversized knit will bold blocks of colour, it reminds me of what Raf Simons did at Calvin Klein not so long ago and feels clean yet designed. There's a movement towards simpler and cleaner styles of fashion, so team this with a plain trousers and simple leather shoes or trainers.

Menswear Product Of The Week The Cactus Jacket

men's trucker jacket scotch soda cactus penis cactus

I'm crazy about cactus and a sucker for a succulent. You only have to look at my super-fun plant business - Fabulous Plants - to see that. Cacti are like living sculptures and they take us to warmer climes and feel exotic especially in a cold, dark and wet UK.

Amsterdamers, Scotch & Soda, has gone all Americana, this season, taking us to the great American desert and decorating this casual trucker jacket with a plethora of cactus varieties. These embroidered motifs standout on the neutral background and will look great whether you are potting up your latest specimen or slamming tequila - another desert crop. 

Wear with light wash jeans - like here - or team with sportswear and a simple T-shirt. Just don't be a prick!

Molly Goddard tank top patterned men's trousers Menswear

The Americans call them 'sweater vests', but I prefer the British tank top. The name comes from looking like the top half of a  tank suit, the one-piece bathing suits of the 1920s worn in tanks or swimming pools.

They have morphed into knitted and often patterned sleeveless jumpers which are perfect the winter to spring transition.

British fashion designer, Molly Goddard, known for her full tulle skirts in womenswear, has entered the men's market. Here is her super cute 'Lennon' men's vest. iPart of her Autumn Winter 2021 runway, it is knitted in Scotland from soft lambswool with a traditional Fair Isle pattern all over. 

Looks great styled here with a kilt.

Orlebar Brown patterned men's trousers Menswear blue Packard SS22Sun, sea and style, the tropical trouser is timeless for any gentleman's holiday season. Made famous by Lillian Pulitzer Rousseau, better known as Lilly Pulitzer, an American socialite and designer, the brightly coloured and highly patterned trouser baton was picked up by Tom Ford who often produces them in his summer and loungewear collections.

Orlebar Brown patterned men's trousers Menswear blue Packard SS22It's all about confidence. Orlebar Brown has really run with the colour and print lately and the whole brand is stronger for it. These Packard trousers also come with a matching hat and neckerchief. They've styled it correctly - right - just ditch the flip-flops and add a sandal.
