'SELECTED BY THE WEEKND'

Yesterday The Weeknd announced via Instagram that he has once again collaborated with H&M on an exclusive collection. The singer described his previous H&M collection as “every piece being effortless and fresh” – and it looks like this collection will be no different.

‘Selected by The Weeknd’ is an 18-piece collection of men’s wardrobe essentials that will launch in selected H&M stores worldwide from the 28th September 2017.

TEMPO WATCHES

Despite the present-day convenience of checking your phone every time you want to know the time, there’s been something of a wristwatch renaissance lately. We’re not talking about the digital LED sport watches or fitness bands you see on athletes, but the ticking timepieces that now grace the wrists of discerning men of all ages.

The trouble often lies in selecting a quality timepiece that’s functional and reliable, yet doesn’t submit to trendy clichés that’ll banish the thing to the bottom of your cupboard by next season. In the spirit of stylish functionality, weather you’re in the office or out on the streets – these Tempo watches will ensure that you’re never late and with a look that’s never out of place.

Whether your horological requirements extend to Smart innovation, understated elegance or mod and trendy – there’s a watch at Nixon for you.

Most of the options out there are really affordable and so we’ve selected a few stylish Nixon timepieces that are worth every penny. Go nab one, before it’s long gone.

DIESEL ON!

2017 is set to be a big year for smartwatches. Android Wear 2.0 has finally landed, we’re expecting to see even more hybrid smartwatches – watches that blur traditional designs with contemporary fitness tracking and notification tech – and you can bet your money we’ll be seeing follow-ups.

Add some high-tech style with signature Diesel attitude to your wardrobe with the Diesel On Time hybrid smartwatch. The device itself is typically Diesel – bulky and industrial while still offering a stylish build. In terms of smarts, the On watches come with basic activity tracking and notifications, while the two ‘pushers’ on either side of the crown can be assigned to specific tasks.

Whether you’re style obsessed or want something that’s good at tracking your steps without hammering the battery, this is the one.

  • JEEP® FOOTWEAR AW17

MADE FOR THE STREET

There’s something about winter weather that just makes you want to trade in your sneakers for something warmer and more substantial like a pair of hardwearing boots. Here’s the thing about boots: they need to be tough, comfortable as well as stylish to get you through all the unpredictable weather coming your way.

Here are our top picks from the new AW17 Jeep® Footwear collection to get you through the upcoming winter months, whether daily commute, downtime or Sunday morning coffee run.

Fashion: TREAD+MILLER AW17: THE LOAFER

THE LOAFER

Everything old always becomes new again. The loafer has endured update after update, continuously evolving with the changing times. Despite the name Loafer, there’s nothing slovenly about slip-ons, yet they certainly offer a more laid-back look.

Low sitting and without laces, they have a Moccasin-like upper, often with a piece of leather straddling the top and easily differentiated from its cousin the Moccasin by a low heel. These aren’t your granddad’s penny loafers, these are lean and more mean than ever before. Whether you opt for a pair in suede or leather is entirely your call. Either way you’ll be stepping out in laid back style.

GETTING DOWN IN STYLE

Today’s more tailored fit and subtle finishes (think matte) transform the ordinary puffer jacket into a statement of personal style – a sharp, quilted jacket that can complement a pair of smart trousers or a suit just as well as your everyday jeans and sneakers.

Functionality has always driven puffer jackets and that practicality isn’t lost on these K-Way Down Jackets. Invest in any of these quality quilted jackets and you’ll find all the bells and whistles, like white duck down filling for warmth and breathability, wind-protection, water-repellent coating and enough pockets to hold all your stuff – whether you’re on your commute to the office or simply making a Sunday morning dash for coffee.

From military-inspired details, an array of colours and performance-minded materials, these down puffers are timeless, stylish, functional, and above all else – darn warm!

Our top picks…in no particular order.
