Six of the best the army look for men
Saturday 21 September 1996
2Jigsaw Menswear, pounds 79. Black zip-up cardigan in jumbo rib with epaulettes. Part of a large range from Jigsaw that really hits the mark, so if the designer version is too expensive and second-hand clothes leave you squeamish, look no further. Available from branches of Jigsaw Menswear nationwide. Call 0171-240 5651 for stockist enquiries.
3Issey Miyake Cotton label trousers, pounds 175. These swamp-green trousers are sophisticated enough to live beyond a fashion trend, but are made in the perfect colour to be up to date with the current army look. Available from Liberty, Regent Street, London W1 (0171-734 1234). Black boots by Timberland, pounds 130. Call stockist enquiries on 0345 669988.
4Gap top, pounds 16. Three-button long-sleeved brushed cotton top in evergreen. A very simple, relaxed piece that would easily slot into any wardrobe - although watch out for the woman in your life, you may be tempted to steal it. Available from branches of The Gap nationwide. Call 0171-518 6300 for stockist enquiries.
5Helmut Lang belts, pounds 30. Available in khaki and black, and featuring a burnished silver buckle with engraving and silver Helmut Lang tag. An easy look to copy; try army surplus stores and second-hand shops, but for a designer logo the price isn't bad. Available from Liberty, Regent Street, London, W1 (0171-734 1234).
6Casio Overland watch, pounds 95. Apparently, this is "the watch to strap on when adventure calls". It includes a range of interesting gadgetry to help you keep track of the sun and moon. Something for the Action Man kind of guy. Available from Paul Smith, Floral Street, London WC2 (0171 379 7133).
