If you’re anything like us you probably prefer to have a select few quality pieces of clothing on hand to build a bunch of different outfits, rather than a mess of random things that don’t really play nice with anything else in your wardrobe. With winter approaching quickly in Australia it’s time to amp up the various elements in your closet to create some cool weather get-ups. London-based online retailer, Opumo, is one of our favourite shops to stock up on premium clothing from some of our favourite brands for the season ahead.
Opumo stock a very carefully curated selection of men’s clothing, shoes, accessories and grooming products from an awesome range of brands like Common Projects, Wood Wood, Uniform Wares and Zespa, to name a few. It’s reassuring to know that the quality of all the products will be really high because of how discerning Opumo are about their brands, which makes it a lot easier to buy bigger investment pieces because you know they’ll actually last.
If you live in Sydney or any other city where the weather is extremely unpredictable and will change vastly over the course of a day, you’ll understand the importance of layering when it comes to getting dressed in the colder seasons. With the temperature rarely dipping any lower than 16 degrees here, you can make do with a good pair of pants, a t-shirt and jumper plus a coat or jacket for the mornings and evenings. We’re really digging the MKI Fisherman Knit Sweater as a super versatile option which can be worn casually with a t-shirt underneath, or worn to work or out for nicer occasions with an Oxford shirt.
As for the other basics you can use to build up a decent winter wardrobe, Wood Wood’s Oskar Chinosare a great pair of pants to keep your legs looking good and comfortable, thanks to the cotton-twill material they’re made of plus the slightly fitted cut of them. They’ll be a great blank canvas to dress up or down with other pieces. Finally, arguably the backbone of any good casual outfit is the humble t-shirt. Considering they’re something you wear every season, you want to pick up a few really good quality ones in a couple of different colours so you have a bit of variety to work with. The Wood Wood Basic T-shirt and MKI Essential T-shirt are both great choices for well-made, premium quality basics to last you well beyond just this winter.
