SALE: EDITOR'S PICKS
This might sound obvious, but the key to shopping any sale is to only buy items that you actually want to wear. If you wouldn’t have bought it full price, don’t buy it in the sale. It’s also important to pick the pieces that have some trend-longevity and will still be in style next season and the season after that. To help you get to the very best of the sale, take a look at what’s on the sale shopping list of Daniel Copley, Topman Editor.
BLACK MESH JOGGERS
WAS: £26 / NOW: £13
Summer has been a breakout season for joggers, with increasing numbers of us opting for a jogger over jeans or chinos. We’re definitely going to see this trend continue into autumn/winter, and the great thing about joggers is they look even better with layers (think longline t-shirt and biker jacket).
SKATER ZIP T-SHIRT
WAS: £16 / NOW: £10
With an oversized silhouette and drop shoulder, the ‘skater’ is one of our newest and most popular t-shirt fits. This version of the skater gets my vote due to its zip detail and curved hem – two features that give it real standout against other tees. Plus, it’s navy, which goes with just about everything.
PREMIUM CHECKED SUIT
WAS: £175 / NOW: £90
Every man needs a quality suit, so if you don’t already have one, the
summer sale is the best time to make a purchase. This heritage-inspired
suit is all about the bold checks – a key formalwear trend – and looks
just as good split up and worn as separates.
TAILORED PRINTED SHORTS
WAS: £30 / NOW: £18
A printed pair of shorts is a surprisingly handy item to have in your wardrobe, especially if – like most of us – you already have plenty of plain t-shirts and tops to wear it with. The fact that we’ve got a bit of sun left, plus bold prints will still be on trend next summer, make these tailored shorts a sound sale purchase.
MID-WASH SKINNY JEANS
WAS: £36 / NOW: £18
If you’ve been putting off buying a new pair of jeans, now is the time to make your move. I’ll be heading straight for this pair of skinny jeans, thanks to the can’t-go-wrong fit and subtle acid wash effect.
