Jacket required Loyal readers will know how much we love a good jacket, and something as trivial as the stifling Hong Kong humidity won't ever change that. A man should simply cover his arms unless in the throes of athletic endeavour. Yes, even in the summer. So imagine our delight when we saw the new COS spring-summer jacket collection. Our picks are the on-trend, in both colour and style, green bomber jacket (above right; HK$1,750) and collarless denim jacket (above left; HK$1,500). COS is at 74 Queen's Road Central.


Too many contemporary menswear brands try to do it all these days. Of course, there’s money to be made by putting your logo on ever more things outside of the brand’s core competence but when you have shirt makers producing leather goods or resort-wear brands making ready-to-wear it gets a bit much. So kudos to Dutch label Scotch & Soda, which was looking to add a trainer to its collection and hooked up with one of Europe’s hippest brands, Superga. We love this simple spring-summer tennis shoe collaboration (above; HK$1,200 per pair) that incorporates Scotch & Soda’s signature Amsterdam blue colour. Scotch & Soda is in IFC Mall, Central.
