Nick Grimshaw for Topman
Foppish gents, listen up: this one's for you. Switching the airwaves for a sewing machine, Radio 1's Nick Grimshaw has teamed up with menswear giant Topman. With inspiration drawn from Grimmy's own wardrobe, the collection sees leopard-print shirts, gentleman's scarves and fringed jackets, plus jeans so skinny your voice may go up several octaves. Anything but grim, but certainly not for the fainthearted. From £15. Launches October 14.

Ben Sherman x Pendleton
Thanks to 'This Is England', Ben Sherman's gingham shirts have attained almost iconic status. This autumn sees BS broadening its checks to collaborate with US woollen mill Pendleton, which claims responsibility for producing the first ever plaid shirt. This Anglo-American hook-up has led to three flannel shirts, and we rather fancy the Black Watch tartan. £145.

Vans
With the inevitable wet weather in mind, Vans has revamped its Old Skool MTE and Sk8-Hi MTE sneakers. They're not just spritzed with some Scotchgard: the Mountain Edition collection boasts a heat-retention layer between the sock liner and sole, plus extra cosy linings, so you can skate through puddles without worrying about trench foot. From £60.

Alternative
American 'elevated basics' brand Alternative has found itself on this side of the Pond, and this month exclusively launches in London's glossiest department store. Expect soft, slouchy separates and simple jumpsuits, made from organic fairtrade cotton, which are far too nice to just stay on the sofa watching Netflix in. From £35.
