1 | New Oliver Spencer Store
East London’s Calvert Street, which shoots eastward from Shoreditch High Street, is the very spine of swinging Hackney. It’s also home to a new concept store by British designer Oliver Spencer, one that has seen him team up furniture brand Another Country.
Inspired by classic British style, the collaborative furniture collection consists of an understated melee of beautiful oak tables and shelves (all made in England, of course). In store, the pieces are used to display Spencer’s clothes, including his distinctive workwear-inspired chambray shirts, car coats and hefty boots.
The store has ‘soft launched’ already, but it doesn’t officially open until later this month. If you felt the urge to pop by tomorrow, we wouldn’t hold it against you.
2 | Richard James’ Faze Collection
Though our winter wardrobes tend to consist of navies, greys and blacks; colour-obsessed tailor Richard James is on a mission to broaden our horizons this season with a new collection of vibrant leather accessories. "Our Faze designs sum up our appreciation of colour perfectly," said James, "and demonstrate that’s it’s still a central element of what we do. The juxtaposition of the black exteriors and the rich colour of the faze designs mirrors our approach to bespoke tailoring, where we have always used vivid linings to add lift and a splash of contrast."

3 | Superdry X Joseph Cheaney & Sons
British super brand Superdry has a habit of picking good, quintessentially English brands to collaborate with. First it was Timothy Everest, and now they’ve re-enlisted the help of master shoemakers Joseph Cheaney & Sons, a name that serves as a by word for quality. The latest collection features a handsome range of sturdy Brogues and Derbys, but Esquire’s favourite is this pair of black full grain leather boots, which will see you through many winters to come.

4 | Brooks England Anniversary Collection
Stocking the brand’s entire range of saddles and cycling accessories, Brooks England’s B1866 store in Seven Dials has become a mecca for local cyclists and leather aficionados (stop it) alike over the past year or so. To celebrate the shop’s first anniversary, a capsule collection of accessories featuring wallets, coin pouches and spectacle cases has been created, but for our money, we’d go for this cash clip; perfect for keeping your notes in check as you hurtle your way through town.
Brooks England Money Clip, £20. B1866 Store, 36 Earlham Street, WC2H 9LH.
