Every week, we get to see the coolest products hitting the menswear market before anyone else - and of course, as committed clothes fans, we have our favourites. Here's a selection of the very best items launching this week that we think you should add to your wardrobe ASAP.
With all the stuff guys need to carry around these days — wallet, phone, sunglasses, keys, paperwork, tablet, gym clothes, laptop — it’s no surprise that the bag industry is on a rise and pocket filling is on the decline. But anything doesn’t go here because we’ve also noticed the uptick on murses (man purses) and mlutches (man clutches).
For the 2015/16 AI the British accessories brand The Cambridge Satchel Company and the English designer Vivienne Westwood they once again worked together to design and produce a limited edition collection of bags. The capsule combines the classic design of the Satchel brand with the iconic squiggle print in new and exclusive colors. The bag is available in three models: Music Bag, Tiny satchel and the Classic 14 "satchel, both for men and women.
One's arguably the most celebrated designer our country's ever produced, the other is one of the biggest homegrown accessories companies around: in short, collaborations don't get much more British than Vivienne Westwood and The Cambridge Satchel Company's latest bag line.
Over in Milan, we noticed stylish men carrying grown-up backpacks made of leather. The lu material separates these upgraded versions from the kind you carried around in high school. Across the pond, schoolboy style merited carrying a backpack that looked a little more refined. This Portrait backpack from Cambridge Satchel Company is made from 100% natural cow leather and will only get better with age.
