Alongside key styles and fabrics, as ever, we’ve carefully selected the most desirable colours to champion for AW14 (we’ve already marked out grey as one of the season’s key colours).

This season, think not just of concerns sartorial, but also of skincare too. Whether on sunny shores familiar or in foreign climes, the perfect summer skincare routine is often frustratingly elusive. To that end, we asked the men’s grooming experts at Kiehl’s Since 1851 how to best prepare for those long days in the sun. The expert advice they give preps skin, perfects skin and protects skin.
