Proper Picks: Gear of the Week 21st-27th May

We’ve reached that point in the year where there’s more new gear than you can shake your Supreme stick at, and it’s come to our attention that not all of it’s what it’s cracked up to be. Here though, once a week, when we pick our favourite gear, we separate the good from the bad, the shite from the mint, and give you gear that you deserve.

So without further ado – and without using any more clichés – it’s Bank Holiday weekend, we’ve all had a long one and we all need something to spend our money on. After all, menswhere is wear the heart is.

adidas WM Terrex Agravic Speed+ x White Mountaineering
£179.00, Hanon

White Mountaineering offers up unique takes on two classic, contemporary models from the adidas TERREX range. We wrote about them here earlier this week.
Albam Military Field Jacket
£249.00, Oi Polloi

Albam makes good coats and if that still surprises you then you have no hope. This Military Field Jacket is ideal for brisk summer evenings and makes for an excellent festival coat too.
Nike React Element 87 Green Mist x Undercover
£500.00, Laced.co.uk

Nike and Japanese streetwear label ‘Undercover’ team up for the React Element 87 Green Mist x Undercover. While not strictly out this week, out mates at Laced have had a little re-stock. Futuristic and look mega with shorts. Perfect.
Supreme x Stone Island
£250.00, Presented By

Obsessed with Supreme and Stone Island? Same here. It’s quite handy really, because this white tee they’ve done together is available now and will look superb with shorts too.


Birkenstock Arizona SFB
£70.00, Oi Polloi

The Birkenstock Arizona (famously worn by countless San-Fran flower-children and possibly your dad) — the sandal of choice for the orthopaedic beatnik. Whether worn while tutoring physics on the weekend, or power-grilling some meat, Birkenstocks are the quintessential comfort/style classic.
Lacoste Tennis Polo
£130.00, Peggs & Son

Lacoste’s tennis-inspired history will never grow old, especially when the sun in shining. Wear this with some short shorts and white pumps while sipping an ice cold Stella Artois and you’re onto a winner.
Kickers Lennon Boat Shoe
£85.00, Kickers

Following last week’s collaboration with Palace, Kickers have brought us a 2019 version of their own iconic Lennon Boat shoe in more reserved colourways. Footwear you can rely on.
