Although wearing new clothes is a great feeling, there’s no doubt that some things definitely get better with age. Sometimes a bit of wear and tear can give our outfits an extra touch of style. From leather jackets to canvas trainers, our top five picks of clothes and accessories to buy now so you can wear forever more will keep you looking cool and casual all year, and year and year long..

Leather Jackets


Real leather jackets are a great investment for any modern man, as they will literally last you a lifetime and continue to look better whilst doing so. Like the classic biker style that we all know and love, distressed leather can add a serious element of cool to your casual look, so if you’re thinking about making the purchase, you won’t have to worry about wearing it out.

Raw Denim Jeans

A pair of raw denim jeans are an essential wardrobe staple. They’ll complement a variety of casual looks and continue to mould themselves to your shape, resulting in the perfect fit that you won’t ever want to take off. Though the colour may fade through time, this will result in a stylish stonewash effect that is completely unique to you and the way you wear them.

Checked Shirts

Flannel shirts are classic pieces that can be dressed up or down, making them perfect for any smart casual occasion. Due to their soft cotton nature, a flannel shirt will start to conform to your shape and mellow out in colour, meaning they’ll mature with you.

Leather Wallets

Not only is a quality wallet a must have for any man, one made from leather will begin to soften with age, making it the perfect place to store all of your cards and banknotes. This will also make it easier to keep in the back pocket of your jeans, meaning comfort and practicality all the way round.

Canvas Trainers

Okay, so a pair of Converse may not be a lifetime investment, but that doesn’t take away from their appeal. With a bit of everyday wear and tear, a pair of canvas trainers will become your go to trainers for any casual ensemble. Not only are they super practical and comfortable, they’ll add a touch of edgy style to your footwear collection.
