From the shaggy shearling and suede fabrics to the suitably autumnal colour palette of taupes and browns, the Seventies are a great source of inspiration for Autumn/Winter menswear.  

So what should be in your capsule wardrobe now that it’s getting colder?

Here, we set out six menswear must-haves for every on-trend gent…

1. Shearling jacket
When it comes to outerwear, it’s got to be a shearling jacket.

A battered brown biker fits the season’s Seventies mood best but if you’re more of a monochrome kind of guy, a matte black jacket has more matching potential.

ASOS DESIGN faux shearling biker jacket with borg lining in black, €103.69

2. Brown jumper
Sounds a bit boring doesn’t it? But this season’s knits are anything but, with multi-tonal stripes, dogtooth patterns and retro sporty collars all adding interest to standard sweaters.

New Look Rust Houndstooth Check Crew Neck Jumper,  now €10 (was €29.99)

3. Zip-up jacket
A key component for layering, a zip-up jacket is a short-cut to cool.

Whether bomber or track style, a zipped jacket worn under a suit gives the tailored look a laid-back, modern spin.

4. Hiking boots
Clothing as armour has been a running theme in fashion, of late, and that has translated to chunky, hiking-style boots, all the better for stomping your way through the concrete jungle.

5. Check scarf
The final flourish on your new season look? Make it a check scarf in an accent colour, to elevate all those subdued browns and neutrals.
