Autumn, we see you and we’re ready for you.

Its that time of year again, when we get that back-to-school feeling and a moment to re-set intentions and refresh for autumn. Looking to get prepared? Read on for all you need..

Aspinal of London

It may not be a new year yet, but you may be looking to get ahead of the game with your 2022 planning. Introducing the Social Responsibility Diary from Aspinal of London, filled with notable sustainability dates in the UK and abroad and made from upycled materials, this diary will not only make you feel super organised, but also enable you to give back as £5 from each diary sold is donated to the South Downs National Trust.


Once you’ve got your new diary in hand, you’ll need a stylish new bag to put it in. Browse the reimagined iconic Lock bag from Dunhill, originally inspired by the classic British attaché cases, the new range of Lock messengers, holsters and pouches offer a relaxed yet sophisticated bag to meet your back-to-school needs.


Accessories complete, onto the outfit. Nothing screams ‘post summer office debut’ more than a good pair of trousers. Discover Sunspel’s guide to finding the perfect fit, from work trousers to slim fitting chinos or something more relaxed.


A wrinkle free shirt is now possible thanks to the BOSS Performance range, designed to equip you with whatever the day ahead holds. With extra comfort and freedom of movement, you won’t even realise you’re wearing a shirt (though rest assured, you will be!)


For that extra prepared feeling in the face of unpredictable autumnal weather, Uniqlo’s ultra-light down is both packable and portable meaning you can be prepared whatever the weather. Coming in eight different colours, there’s something to match any wardrobe.

Barker Shoes

Onto footwear, proud owner of Barker shoes? Give them their own back-to-school treatment and new lease of life with the Barker Shoes refurbishment service. Your shoes will be put back onto their original lasts whilst the shoes are re-welted, re-soled and re-heeled before being cleaned and polished and ready to carry you into the autumn.

New and Lingwood

To top it all off? A good night’s sleep of course. Get tucked up with New & Lingwood’s latest collection of unbelievably soft pyjamas made with a blend of cotton and silk and a huge array of patterns, they’re sure to set you up for a blissful 40 winks.

Snow Peak

Looking to prep your furry friend for that back-to-school feeling or their debut in the office? Pick up a Snow Peak hoodie in black or grey or maybe even dial it up a notch and spoil them with an insulated jacket for the colder months ahead. Who said back-to-school was just for us humans?
