Proper Picks – February 2024

We’re back again with our monthly round-up of things that simply caught our eye. If you work for a brand or agency and you fancy seeing your stuff here, send us an email and we’ll take a look.

Hoka Tor Summit 2 – Black / Black
Ideal for night-time manoeuvres, this stealthy Tor Summit 2 is a progressive development that sees a pared back design language, metal hardware and just generally a very robust pair of shoes. The Tor Ultra’s highly cushioned midsole is used, set atop Vibram’s deep lugged MegaGrip outsole for all-weather traction.

District Vision Junya Racer Sunglasses
When a pair of sunglasses boast of “hypoallergenic rubber nose pad and adjustable temple tips with a titanium core” you know they’re not messing about.

Wild Things X-Pac Neck Pouch
No trip these days seems set without some sort of luggage. Pockets are great but something extraneous is what’s required. Wild Things are here for you.

Kavu Japan Edition Chilliwack Pant
Constructed to encourage full freedom of movement, making these Chilliwack trousers ideal for hiking, climbing or – should the mood take you – doing a bit of street dance.

Gramicci Down Mountain Cap
Though the weather may be on the way to becoming somewhat more clement, this is the sort of hat that’ll serve you well for winters to come.

CDLP Midweight t-shirt
Every wardrobe needs tees, some printed, some not. This obviously falls into the latter category.

Paul Smith PS70 T-Shirt
Few brands have the history of Paul Smith. Trends come and go but the timeless style you get from this long-established brand is easy to see.

Universal Works Lancaster Jacket
Stick a tie-dye pattern on a fleece, make it look a bit like the type of sky you stare at for ages and ages having read there might be a chance to see the northern lights. There you go. This is that. That is this.

Percival Oversized T-Shirt Citrus
We here at Proper are all fans of Percival, particularly their execution of a really nice embroidery. We might be about to have more snow landing on us, but before you know it, the sunshine will be turning up the saturation out of your window.

Mackintosh Charcoal Wool and Cashmere Cap
A premium wool and cashmere blend puts a refined spin on the Tipping baseball cap in charcoal grey. Note the Dandy Man logo tab at the side; a subtle nod to house codes.

PWVC Herringbone Bomber
The bomber jacket is the sort of thing every masculine male fella bloke should own. Which version that should be is down to the individual. It’s up to you, basically. But we like this one. So here it is. Nice isn’t it?

Escuyer Ribbed Merino Beanie
This colour is big right now. Whether you’ve noticed it or not, it’s defo there. We call it mushy peas but it’s not really the most aspirational way to refer to a hat. But who cares, it’s nice. Shut up.

adidas Samba OG
It’s been a mad time this last year for the Samba. adidas have this uncanny knack of being able to wheel out their iconic designs every few years, reminding people what masters of innovation they were, and still are. The Samba is the latest off the carousel, sported by your younger brother and his posh girlfriend.
