I’ve done a poll, I’ve asked my friends, my family, my co-workers and we’ve all decided that we’ve had enough of Summer. Scorching hot days are all good and well if you’re lying on a beach or sipping an Aperol Spritz by the pool but they are not so good when you’re in the office or worse on a tube. But worst of all, I’ve run out of shorts. I’m so ready for Autumn-Winter collections that I’m happy to ask the weather gods for some icy winds and maybe even a bit of snow.
With this in mind it’s time to look at what the new season has to offer. First stop is Whistles, which has fast become my favourite menswear shop as it is always on point. There’s something intrinsically sophisticated about Whistles. Aesthetically it offers a quiet confidence, understated but never boring. So here’s a look at their AW16 lookbook. Special mention to the wool baseball cap and the utility denim jacket. Perfect examples of what Whistles is great at – taking a trend and refining it, producing the best example of that item that you can find. They make looking good so easy. Thanks Whistles.
