Time and again I think outside the box, stretch and try to be creative when dressing but then there are times like this when I just find myself reverting to the classics, which seems to be exactly where the entire British high street is turning to source their winter collection inspo. So for this outfit, I’ve teamed up a few of menswear’s era-transcending favourites, with just a touch of new age that pulls me back to the present. Also, read on to find out how you can treat yourself or a loved one to a JORD wood watch (click to visit website) for less!!

Firstly, shearlings are seriously hot right now and nothing says “I’m staying toasty in this bitter cold” quite like a good ol’ wool-lined jacket.
Jacket: River Island | Tee: ASOS | Trousers: Topman | Brogues: Lotus (similar) | Watch: JORD*
This River Island offering in a dark, rustic brown is a safe bet for most as it will go nicely with exisiting items in any man’s wardrobe so churning out a hundred different looks with it is already made easy. To demonstrate how you can dress it up just ever so slightly, I’ve layered underneath a simple yet smart zipped-up ASOS turtleneck tee.

Speaking of an all-time classic, tartan proves to be going strong still! It’s most definitely my fav pattern and Topman currently has a whole array of printed (all sorts of check) skinny chinos on offer so why not introduce a little colour and excitement to your winter wardrobe?
A good pair of brogues is to a man as a pair of Louboutin is to a woman. Though these Lotus might not be the most suitable footwear for the harsh winter forecasted but they do the trick perfectly in this relatively mild autumn.

Finally, I pull this outfit together with the exquisite JORD wood watch, which has already earned me quite a few compliments…
The wooden part itself is beautifully crafted while the see-through face reveals all the internal mechanics – my favourite feature of this gorgeous timepiece.
