Men's style: Modern classics for the well-dressed gent
by Robert Johnston
There are certain things that every man knows to be wardrobe essentials: a great winter coat, a timeless pair of sunglasses and a well-cut bespoke or made-to-measure suit. But when it comes to the finer details, the best dressed men know there are certain key pieces and fabrics that will stand the test of time. Robert Johnston rounds up this season's key pieces guaranteed to stand the test of time.
Gieves & Hawkes jacket
It might boast the most historic address in men’s tailoring – Number One Savile Row – but there is nothing stuffy about Gieves & Hawkes’ take on menswear. This elegant suede jacket will be a favourite piece for years.
Alice Made This cufflinks
Alice Walsh takes inspiration from industrial design and the aerospace sector to create unique accessories like these Maxwell copper cufflinks.
P Johnson overshirt
Australian tailor P Johnson has just launched his first capsule collection with Mr Porter with an Antipodean take on Italian style. Johnson has a workshop in Tuscany so the workmanship is bonzer.
Tom Ford loafers
Thanks to his time at Gucci, Tom Ford knows about loafers. So when he created a signature style for his own label it was always going to be an instant classic.
These woven drawstring trousers are cut from suit fabric and are incredibly comfortable. Brilliantly versatile, they can be dressed up with a blazer or down with a simple white T-shirt.
Stella McCartney jumper
McCartney launched her menswear collection last year and it already has a legion of fans. This olive green roll-neck cashmere blend jumper has a slouchy silhouette and is perfect for breezy days at sea.
Garrett Leight sunglasses
Son of Oliver Peoples’ co-founder Larry Leight, Garrett has created his own eyewear brand with a touch of Californian cool. These Zephyrs are a necessary addition to your shades collection.
Ermenegildo Zegna trainers
Zegna’s creative director is turning the world’s largest luxury menswear label into one of the coolest brands in Milan. We love his accessories, like these Tiziano trainers.
