Is summer officially over? Well, not according to the weather – but sunshine or not, holiday season is becoming a distant memory as we get back to work. Following on from womenswear editor Charlene Barton’s ‘New Workwear’ Get the Look story, this week it’s the men’s turn to give their office wardrobe a fresh update. Continuing our collaboration with GQ magazine, online editor Nick Carvell curates his selection of sharp tailoring options in our ‘Business Class’ feature, shot on the streets of New York. Another one for the guys (and, I’m sure, a number of ladies too): I’ve selected my top pick from British model David Gandy’s debut underwear and sleepwear range for Autograph. To get you ready to go in the morning, food & wine editor Becky Sunshine recommends our new Fairtrade coffee capsules. And for your off-duty fashion fix, don’t miss Isabelle O’Carroll’s favourite downtime piece, a luxe tunic knit that’s made for the cooler days ahead. You’ll find all this and much more in Style & Living this week.
