Jacket by Topman
You won't be surprised to learn that we are firm believers in splashing out on at least one key trend piece each season - after all, why are you reading this? And this winter the purchase will definitely be a flying jacket like this. Bandits at two o'clock, chaps.
Tie by Hackett
The fashionable size for ties waxes and wanes. But if you want some neckwear that will get knotted for every occasion, the best bet is a knitted tie, which you can team with everything from chambray to the crispest white shirt.
Espresso Maker by Lavazza
It was once said that life was far too short to drink bad wine - the same can be said for coffee. And now there is no excuse to be spooning Mellow Birds. A Lavazza espresso machine is small enough to sit in your kitchen and will make you a brilliant barrista in the blink of an eye.
Wallet by Oliver Sweeney
Whatever you wear, it's the accessories that separate the men from the boys. Stingray skin, or shagreen, is one of the coolest animal skins right now and is much more scratch-resistant than other forms of leather.
Headphones by Sony
To take Jean-Paul Sartre's famous maxim a little further, hell is other people banging on. Find perfect peace with noise-cancelling headphones, so you don't have to listen to your colleagues explain the plot of Inception.
Jeeves and Wooster Complete Works
If you don't laugh at Jeeves and Wooster then there is something wrong with you. Bertie, Gussie Fink-Nottle and Aunts Agatha and Dahlia are as hilarious today as they ever were. And who could resist the image of proto-fascist Roderick Spode and his band of black shorts?
Tie Hanger by Marks & Spencer
If you decide you do need more than one tie in your life, this is the only way to store them. Remember, you should never dry-clean or wash ties as they lose their shape, and watch out for that Rioja - the death knell for all ties.
Hoody by Gap
There is something irresistible about sports luxe - it may sound pretentious but it looks great, So get down with the posh kids with a cashmere hoody.
Aviators by Topman
Fashions in sunglasses come and go, whether they be Bono-esque goggles or the ubiquitous Wayfarers. But if you have to have just one pair of shades in your life, make sure they're aviators.
Blazer by Harris Tweed
Now, look here, chaps - we're British, damn it. And that means we cannot possibly imagine life without a decent tweed jacket. It makes more than the moors merrier; this season it makes the city slicker, too.
T-shirts by Gap
To somewhat mangle Wallis Simpson's most famous quote, you can't be too rich, too thin or have too many white T-shirts. Just take a look at Marlon Brando in A Streetcar Named Desire. And, while his character may have been a wife beater, he looked better than he would have done wearing a wife-beater.
Suit Carrier by Dunhill
This suit carrier is small enough to be used as carry-on luggage and will give you the confidence that even if your body is crumpled from a lack of legroom, your clothes will still look sharp at the other end.
Watch by Thomas Sabo
Every boy needs a bit of bling. Wearing diamonds on your wrist is a discreet way to sparkle, just be careful not to go pavé all over. And we aren't talking about Australian desserts.
