OK, so the slouchy beanie hat is hardly news, having been here since the days of Nirvana and worn by every self-respecting celeb as they venture out to get the milk after another all-nighter in Primrose Hill. But the beanie hat in a luxury textile casts the rock drummer’s hat of choice in an entirely new light.

I recently purchased a pair of high-waisted, striped men’s trousers from a charity shop that are from Burton back in the day when it was still called Montague Burton. It was an exciting find and they fit like heaven so when I found out Burton were releasing their Heritage collection my ears pricked up.
First here’s a little history lesson: born Moshe Osinsky, Montague Burton came to England as a refugee from Lithuania and founded the company we now know as Burton.

My new favourite colour is a rich dark blue that falls somewhere between cobalt and navy. Not as obvious as a bright Yves Klein blue but not as trad as straight navy, the colour looks great with the remainders of a tan.
French Connection‘s new cashmere range includes a gorgeous crew neck in this exact shade for £85. Use it to pep up a wardrobe of neutrals, the slim fit is flattering and wont give any excess bulk to your silhouette. Block colours will also look good with the blue, try out a vivid orange or coral, dove grey or lemon yellow.
The cashmere may not be very longwearing or the best quality but when a jumper like this is reduced to £17 it’s worth a punt. It’s from Topman and you don’t even have to leave the house to get it and what’s more the khaki colour is unusual but wearable. Team it with grey trousers and tee in a soft but luminous colour like coral which is tipped to be the hot colour this spring.
Now that it’s officially freezing outside, it’s
time to look at some gloves. To say Mario
Portolano just makes gloves would be an understatement. To say he made
wearable pieces of art would be an overstatement. What he does do is make
gloves out of the finest materials he can find, like these cashmere-lined
As bizarre as this following sentence is
going to sound, I’m not sure I even want to put myself through this kind of
luxury. How can you ever go back to wearing normal gloves after smothering your
hands in cashmere? I’m sure this is worth every penny of the $195 price tag.
