GUEST SPOT: Wondering what to wear in December in London? 'The Fix for Men's India Gladsone picks out the must-have menswear for the winter season.
A proper jacket makes or breaks an outfit. Simple yet sophisticated, you can’t go wrong with a Gloverall overcoat such as this.This single breasted Chesterfield is crafted from Italian Melton Cloth with horn buttons. Not only will it keep you warm, but it is also achingly stylish and versatile.
Gloverall Lined Chesterfield, £365
For extra fashion credentials, pick up a limited edition duffle at the V&A.
Stuarts London, 35-37 Uxbridge Road, W12 8LH
For jumpers, we cannot recommend Albam highly enough. This Shetland Sweater is one of the best on the market right now. We love the burgundy version worn with a crisp white shirt underneath.
Albam, 286 Upper Street, N1 2TZ.
We love A.P.C menswear, and with a new store coming to Soho suave style is about to become accessible for all. A.P.C trousers are luxury incarnate. Take, for example, A.P.C's jet black wool trousers. Cut in a trim silhouette, they are urbane and charming, easy to wear from the office into the evening whilst retaining a debonair vibe throughout.
A.P.C Slim Fit Wool Trousers, £225, available at Mr Porter
A.P.C., 30 Lexington Street, W1F 0LH
Shoes are the trickiest item this time of the year. Rain renders lightweight trainers irrelevant and beats away the polish of a well made brogue. Thankfully Red Wing presents a solution to these fashion conundrums in the form of rubber soled leather boots. Durable and resilient, these boots are designed as an investment piece that will tide you through the downpours year on year. Dark grey with a triple stitch, these boots would be an excellent compliment to the A.P.C trousers.
Red Wing, Rubber Soled Leather boots, £230 available at Mr Porter
20 Endell St, WC2H 9BD
If you haven’t visited Orlebar Brown’s (relatively) new shop on Westbourne Grove, make it a priority this month. Usually synonymous with summer, the shop is vast with a resort feel. However it also has a great winter edit, which includes this beautiful grey cashmere beanie. Guaranteed to spark envy at Sunday brunches all over London – including Daylesford next door.
Dark Grey cashmere beanie, £125
206 Westbourne Grove, W11 2RH
