The 10 Best high street menswear

view gallery VIEW GALLERY

For chaps wanting to look stylish this autumn, head to the high street for some some top fashion buys

1. Topman

Over the past few seasons, the renaissance of the double-breasted jacket has assured its triumphant return to the stylish gent’s wardrobe. Now as popular as its single-breasted cousin, this lightweight burgundy-coloured jacket is a value for money investment piece.


2. Burton

Knitwear has a touch of the subversive about it for the autumn, with vivid colour and pattern splayed across many a jumper. However, to pull off this natty trend with any sartorial aplomb, remember to keep the bottom half of your outfit simple. Try this patterned knit from Burton with grey skinny jeans.


3. Mantaray

If one of your vices is buying fashion- forward clothes on a limited budget, Mantaray is a label that should bring a smile to your face. This double-breasted reefer jacket will strengthen your  fashion credentials without breaking the bank.


4. Reiss

If you’re in the market for a hard-wearing bag with added sex appeal then why not try the Casey from Reiss?  The leather exterior has a timeless appeal as does the style – this tote  won’t date easily and will work well with a fancy suit or pared-down knits and chinos.


5. Cos

Cos can always be relied upon to provide understated, affordable yet handsome clothes. This season many high- end designers created winter coats that were oversized and roomy. If this style of coat appeals but you don’t have the money for the designer price tag, try this fly-front fastening, generously  cut coat.


6. Asos

By its very nature a backpack is probably one of the most practical man bags to date. But practicality doesn’t have to equate to boring; this black bag from Asos is covered in a subtle cubic pattern to give it added va va voom.


7. TU Sainsbury's

Like it or not, the season of the novelty sweater will soon be upon us again. That doesn’t mean that you have to jump on the band wagon and follow suit. Take a hint from this versatile patterned knit from supermarket clothing label Tu; less is sometimes more

£22, 0800 63 62 62

8. Dockers

The paisley print has made a big impression on many designer collections this season. Once confined to pocket squares and silk ties, it has migrated on to coats, knits and shirts. The small but perfectly formed paisley print on this Dockers shirt is an excellent way to acknowledge the trend.


9. Matalan

If you’re looking for a pair of shoes that work with a suit then the monk strap has to be your shoe of choice. This double monk from Matalan has versatility – they can be just as easily worn with your favourite pair of jeans.


10. New Balance

New Balance are authentic performance running shoes that can morph into fashion footwear as well. The colour of this pair – khaki – gels with the current vogue for all things camouflage.
