When the weather starts to change, you’ll need to layer up as October is pretty special. A seasonal gift – blazing red, green and orange autumn leaves, where it is still, on occasion, warm enough to wear a t-shirt and shorts, and jeans and a light sweater, but it’s also time to start thinking about getting a few pieces of warmer clothing ready.
And then there’s that foot-in-the-leaves shuffle you’ve done since school. It’s an exciting time in autumn, but also a little hard to get dressed TBH! That’s where we come in.
Armor Lux – The Breton Striped Shirt
Most people love something striped at one stage or the other. But the Breton, you see, is absolutely fine, and to rescue it from that old way of thinking, you just need to change how you wear it. The Breton is a proud identifier, a shirt for people who don’t wear plain, it speaks of good-but-simple tastes. So each Autumn, those twenty stripes or so resurface, bring you that intoxicating air of the French Riviera, and that comfortable feel of French style, looking stylish, along with a set of lifestyle choices.
Whether you want to look smart for work, shaper for the evening or just laid back for the weekend, the Breton striped ‘Houat’ thick shirt in 100% cotton is a stylish upgrade from your plain shirt and a great way to start experimenting with patterns.

Novesta: Star Master 59 Cedar Plimsoll
Gotta have ‘Solls. A plimsoll really is a canvas shoe that has a rubber sole that is molded on the bottom. And yes they are different from a more traditional trainer shoe as the rubber sole itself is glued and cured.
Celebrities have taken to wearing them. Surfers and sailors swear by them. This classic canvas shoe style has definitely regained its social footing. The Novesta Star Master 59 Cedar plimsoll is handmade and a vegan shoe, so they are perfect for those that want to stick to natural materials and a classic silhouette.
Low-tops generally serve to preserve and complement the clean lines of what you wear. Simple plimsolls work best, as athletic-inspired trainers are too distracting if you want to wear them with a formal attire. Sometimes you need the shoes to do the talking.
