What To Buy This Week

Just been paid? Here's five things that should top this month's wish list. 

Most Popular

1 | The Stutterheim X Whistles Coat

Whistles menswear range only launched last year, but it’s already garnered a healthy following, which is fair enough, because it’s really strong. Not resting on their laurels, they recently announced a collaboration with Scandi rain coat specialists Stutterheim, and the collection hits stores this week. There’s just two designs – one in grey with white and black stripes along the bottom, and one in navy with orange and white stripes. Of the two, we slightly prefer the latter, but that’s because everyone at Esquire tends to gravitate towards blue.

2 | The Dior Watch

One of the few high fashion designers that has made a successful foray into the watch industry, Dior has a knack of making timepieces that are as beautiful as they are accurate. This Chiffre Rouge Moonphase is clearly no exception. An automatic movement is housed within a brushed stainless steel case, and powers a small second counter, big date and most impressively, a moonphase indicator. The most alluring thing however (beyond the perforated calfskin strap and metalized mother of pearl dial) is the fact that it’s limited to just 100 pieces. So you’re not just buying a watch; you're buying membership to a very exclusive club.

3 | The Farah Track Top

The presentations at London Collections: Men in January were abundant with ‘sports lux’ styling (see Baartmans & Siegel, Lou Dalton and Tiger of Sweden for proof), and now the craze has found its way to the high street. Farah’s new SS15 collection is inspired by the movement, so it’s abound with bold prints, stripes, slouchy jersey pieces and technical fabrics. The champion, however, is the zip down Holborn Jacket in navy, which chants of football terrace chic. It’s good for your journey to the gym, but we’d pair it with a polo shirt, buttoned to the top, and a slight grimace.

Holborn Jacket, £65
 

4 | The Jo Malone Fragrance

At Jo Malone, the London perfumers founded in 1994, the focus is on layering. That is to say, many of their various fragrances are perfectly good on their own, but customers are encouraged to use a two or more at the same time to build up their own unique scent. The Rock the Ages collection looks to celebrate Britain’s eccentric history via five scents, with each of which representing a different era of our past. A couple are quite feminine, so steer clear unless you want to smell like your mum, but Pomegranate Noir (the Victorian Age) and Birch & Black Pepper (modern Britain) are rich, deep and suitably masculine.

Jo Malone Rock the Ages scents, £42 for 30ml.


5 | The Marwood Tie

Marwood has been quietly crafting beautiful ties, scarves and other accessories in England for some time now, but the latest collection is perhaps stronger than any other. This handmade silk jacquard tie in a Persian star motif is particularly great because it can be worn with your every day work attire, but it’s good for black tie too, and at Esquire we love easy wearing stuff. If you favour a little more colour under your collar, then the collection also offers an exceptionally handsome slub silk tie woven with gold and copper. It’s not as bling as it sounds, honestly.

Marwood Persian Star Silk Tie, £120
