MILITARY PRECISION

Military-inspired design is big news for autumn.
Master the look with shades of green, pea coats
and army jackets, as seen in collections from Lou
Dalton to Richard James and Margaret Howell,
says menswear editor William Oliver

BRAVE THE ELEMENTS:
BE READY FOR ANYTHING WITH VERSATILE LAYERS

Autumn is a changeable time – sunny one minute, showers the next. Light layers are a great solution,
and a khaki palette is the perfect match for the
season’s mood

OFF-DUTY: OPT FOR
CIVVIES IN MUTED,
EARTHY HUES

Choose toned-down hues for a relaxed look
