Round about now I go on a mad search in my wardrobe for my collection of Fred Perry’s. When that search proves fruitless I normally treat myself to a polo shirt or two, one from here or here and another cheapo from a High Street store. If that’s you cunning plan too, here is a round up of some of …

We looked at some wonderful summer jackets yesterday featuring labels like Rene Gurskov and Moncler but for the more budget conscious among you here is a pick of summer jackets from the high street.

Stripe scarves are starting to become so ubiquitous that they’re joining Taz socks and Homer Simpson ties in the naffness leagues, not any old stripe scarf though, it’s the fine stripe stretchy knit scarf with usually comes in a burgundy melange of colours and has fringing on the ends.
Burton’s sale is now on and they’ve got lots of great reductions including houndstooth waistcoats, the limited edition Ben Sherman overcoats and a good selection of knitwear.
In my continuing mission to get the men of Britain into short shorts I’ve found a great pair which combines the tailoring of a high-fashion pair of short shorts with good wearability and even better price.
While we’re waiting to crack out the summer garms one of the best ways to look a bit less wintry is to add a bit of colour to your outfit.
Burton’s SB2 jacket is a great summer alternative to pinstripe or plain navy but is dark enough to avoid comparisons with the man from Del Monte.
Burton have come a long way, their Black Label range is one of
the few great high street ranges for men but they still have a few duff
items like these ‘Stockings Lady’ cufflinks (£12).
If you’ve looked at our Jeans coverage in

that the best selvedge denim comes from Japan. Not necessarily all denim from
Japan is expertly made on great looms and this is why Burton’s attempt
at Japanese denim is a bit cheeky.
A light waterproof jacket is fast becoming an essential in this changeable weather.
This mesh belt is a nod to the sporty trend without going the full be-shellsuited hog.
I’m not such a fan of flip flops, but these Burton ones
are a great buy for the park or to pop in your suitcase.
Manbags have come a long way from Kel from Kath and Kim’s grey pleather pouch. There are many bags on the high street to choose from, starting with the bag that kicked off the whole trend.
I mentioned yesterday that knee high shorts aren’t easy to carry off, but it’s a bit of a dilemma because purely from a fashion (rather than comfort) perspective 3/4 length trousers are looking a bit dated.
The word ‘Burton’ strikes fear into my heart, I immediately see identikit student types, the kind who appear on Shipwrecked and seem to think it’s ok to dress like a surfer. Even if you’re at university in Leeds, and it’s November. I’ve put my prejudices to one side for a second and tried to fine some nice things from Burton, …
