The award-winning Mr Porter is known for being one of the hot spots online for men’s fashion, showcasing an array styles and selling hundreds of leading international brands all on one site.

Dominating its market for the previous years, the brand has become incredibly well known within the industry, never letting us down, whether it be for advice on men’s fashion or the actual product available. However, the brand is now branching out in creating there very own clothing in the name of ‘Mr P’, with the first collection containing 53 pieces.

Within the collection you’ll be able to find timeless staple pieces which we all can appreciate, the collection offers everyday pieces including trousers, cashmere-blend overcoats as well as Oxford shirts just to name a few, all pieces with should be included in your wardrobe.

The brand will be releasing 5 limited edition capsules a year and with this being there first I’m sure if you aren’t already you will be excited for what is to come. Here’s a look at a few of our favourite pieces:

Wool-Blend Sweater

Comfy and stylish, this wool-blend sweater is based on a vintage fisherman’s design that was unearthed from private archives. This textural piece graduates from a herringbone weave to ribbing. Embrace the rustic feel and team it with brown or deep-green corduroy trousers.

Shearling-Trimmed Leather Aviator Jacket

We love leather and we also love a good aviator… This smooth leather aviator jacket is fitted with a detachable shearling collar that looks cool turned up against the cold. The full lining provides warmth and a bit of structure.

Houndstooth Virgin Wool Coat

This specific houndstooth overcoat is made with practicality and style in mind. It has a roomy fit that means you can comfortably slip it over a jacket, while the flashes of red will brighten up winter outfits. The unlined construction shows off the expert craftsmanship and as the fabric is double-faced, it looks just as good inside out. Horn buttons and handy flap pockets round things off nicely.

Ribbed Merino Wool Zip-Up Sweater

We love how the Mr. P collection offers the kind of timeless foundation pieces that are essential to every wardrobe. This zip-up sweater has been knitted in Italy from pliable five-gauge extra fine merino wool – it’s weighty enough to wear as a light jacket between seasons. You’ll find that the green shade works equally well with dark and light colours.

Slim-Fit Selvedge Denim Jeans

We love quality pieces, especially these Mr P jeans have been made in Okayama, Japan, from narrow-loom selvedge denim – the trim at the centre-back belt loop is a marker of the fabric’s quality. Detailed with contrasting tobacco stitching for an authentic finish, this indigo pair has a comfortable mid-rise waistband and tidy slim-fit shape. You’ll find that they mould to your frame as you break them in.

It’s warming up, slightly, it’s looking like summer’s, hopefully, on its way and the thought of holidays are creeping into our heads. Whether that be on a long deserted beach in some far flung destination or something a little nearer to home and a trip to some of blighty’s incredible coastlines. One thing you will definitely have to pack is swimwear, now before we move on any further, as you all know, here at Clothes-make-the-man.com we pride ourselves on being a no nonsense platform that cater for the requirements of the regular guy. So please this is a non swimming trunk shoot, strictly shorts and some of the best that are currently on the market.
