With a jute sole and cotton upper, Soludos' breathable shoes feel and look great. We're loving the navy Dali and black and white Sevilla espadrilles (both right; HK$260 a pair) for their simplicity and functionality. Soludos is available at Konzepp, 50 Tung Street, Sheung Wan, tel: 2803 0339.

In D'Urban's latest campaign, winter casuals have a touch of the blues, as seen in the blouson jacket (HK$4,590), scarf (HK$1,590), shoes (HK$3,590) and shirt (HK$1,390) matched with white casual trousers (all right; HK$1,790). For a slick, more formal look, we opt for the black jacket (HK$5,590), blue dress shirt (HK$1,690), grey dress trousers (HK$2,390) with black tie (HK$850), gloves (HK$1,990) and belt (all far right; HK$990). D'Urban is in Times Square, Causeway Bay, tel: 2506 2126.
Scent of a man
At first look, Trussardi Uomo looks like an artefact from the 1980s, but, as Beatrice Trussardi, head of the brand, says, 'The fragrances are completely new, yet they bring to mind the first Trussardi perfumes introduced in the 80s, to which they are a heartfelt tribute. These elegant fragrances ... were created for strong-willed, sensuous modern men.' The Trussardi Uomo (HK$690/100ml) has notes of Italian lemon, bergamot, galbanum and nutmeg, with a patchouli and leather accord. Trussardi Uomo is available at LCX, Ocean Centre, Harbour City, Tsim Sha Tsui, tel: 3101 0455.
