IT’S CHRRRRIIIIIISSSSTTTTTMAAAAAAAS! Well, the start of it anyway. This month will be hectic, we’re not going to lie. Tears will be shed while shopping, livers will be severely damaged, stomachs will be swollen. So try and squeeze some of our suggestions in there to stop you from having a complete meltdown...
1. SELECTED HOMME CHRISTMAS SWEATSHIRTS
We love a good tasteless Christmas jumper, but wouldn’t it be nice to have some smart December style? Selected Homme thought the exact same thing, which is why the Scandinavian brand has made a range of printed Christmas sweatshirts for the style conscious man.
2. NOMAD CHRISTMAS CINEMA
You may have seen us talking about outdoor cinemas this summer, but don’t think the days of watching movies adventurously are gone just because the sun has. This winter, Nomad Cinema is hosting Christmas classics like Gremlins, Bad Santa and the Nightmare Before Christmas in unique locations around London.
3. VELVET BLAZERS
Ah, the most wonderful time of the year, where you’re never free of a headache or warning emails from human resources. Look sharp at your Christmas party this year with the celebration staple: the velvet blazer. We can’t stop you twerking on the dance floor, but you can look good doing it.
4. STREET TAILOR
Tailoring gets a contemporary update this season with the introduction of Street Tailor, a capsule collection that reworks timeless staples with a modern feel. Authentic sports fabrics and cuts are key, featured in textured blazers and midnight navy joggers.
5. TOPMAN CHRISTMAS DEALS
In the lead up to Christmas, we’ll be giving you a fresh deal…everyday! From exclusive online offers on festive essentials to sale previews. Now that’s better than a crummy advent chocolate, isn’t it?
6. TOP PICK
Our Creative Director Gordon Richardson highlights this Lux bomber suit jacket as his top pick for December. The bomber has been the jacket of the season, so no surprise that it’s made its way into a suit. Dress it up with some black trousers and a white shirt or just smarten up your Selvedge jeans and boots combo.
Well Skins star Jack O’Connell has done alright for himself! Here he stars in Angelina Jolie’s new epic war drama as Louis "Louie" Zamperini, real life olympian and war hero who was captured by the Japanese navy during WWII.
UNBROKEN IS OUT IN CINEMAS FROM 26TH DECEMBER
8. CHRISTMAS SOCKS
It just wouldn’t be Christmas without a pair of novelty socks. Whatever age you get too, your parents will still buy you them, so make sure they get the right ones. Our festive favourites include gingerbread and reindeer prints, but modern updates include…erm…Santa pug?
9. TREND: CAPES
Not in the superhero sort of way, but in the luxury high fashion sort of way. This season Topman innovates winter accessories with the introduction of capes, made to be worn as a statement layer over leather jackets, overcoats and more.
Topman caught up with up and coming DJ duo Blonde to talk about beards, Boardwalk Empire and bad selfies. You know, the important stuff in life. Keep an eye on our official Youtube channel for more weird and wonderful videos coming soon.
