Whereas summer wardrobes are based around light colours and intricate patterns, autumn and winter call for a more serious take on the men’s wardrobe. Out are the lightweight materials and in are the durable, heavyweight wools and leathers. At OPUMO, we welcome the colder seasons as a chance to hone in the sophisticated side to our styling. It’s this idea that has inspired this week’s top 5 items to drop this week. Oozing class and elegance, A Day’s March, Sons of London, Tishk Barzanji, NORR11 and Cafe Leather Supply lead us coolly into this week.
Tailored to a relaxed fit, A Day’s March’s Checked Wool Classic Coat will be seeing us through autumn and winter. Cut from a luxurious checked navy wool from Italian mill IN.TES.PRA, this men’s overcoat finishes at the knee. Thanks to the relaxed tailoring, you won’t have trouble slipping this men’s woollen overcoat over a few layers this season. No matter what you’re wearing underneath, the sharp lines of this piece will elevate your look, just as an overcoat should. Whether you’re styling your favourite A Day's March denim and sneakers or a suit and brogues, this navy overcoat will elevate the outfit.
As the weather deteriorates, the need for a trusty pair of men’s boots becomes more and more apparent. You don’t want to sacrifice your polished outfit for practicality though, right? Then Sons of London’s The Fourth Son Chelsea Boots are a no-brainer. See our top picks from the Son's of London new collection. Handcrafted from fine Italian calfskin, this pair of men’s Chelsea boots features a full leather lining as well as a leather sole and injected rubber grip for added comfort. The supple leather uppers will loosen over time, gaining character and comfort – we think it’ll take less than a month for this pair to become your go-to leather boots. Unsure about what your size will be? Be sure to check out our Son's of London size guide.
Haven't heard of him? Be sure to start with our introduction to Tishk Barzanji. Tishk Barzanji’s mysterious scenes are accruing a sizeable following after his recent stage design for Jorja Smith. Tishk Barzanji’s prints are characterised by a dreamy evening light that, regardless of the scene, imbues each piece with a sense of mystery. This is never more apparent than in Intriguing. As deep orange sunlight filters through the high, arched windows of a stylish loft conversion, three silhouetted characters dominate the floor. What does it mean? That’s up to you to decide once it’s on your wall.
Much like NORR11’s Samurai Chair, the Elephant Chair combines Scandinavian minimalism with Japanese aesthetics. Inspired by upholstered chairs of the 1950s, this elegant lounge chair features an elephant ear-shaped back that curves comfortably around the body. Handcrafted with a solid oak frame and pure leather upholstery Elephant Chair is “elegant and simple but sturdy without being clumsy.”
The final touch to your autumn-time sophistication is this pair of leather gloves by Cafe Leather Supply. Handcrafted in Spain from premium lambskin leather, they are the perfect everyday accessory. The supple lambskin construction is warm, comfortable and extremely durable, ageing with character over time.
