If you’re a minimalist, this is where you should be. Cos, short for Collection of Style, is H&M’s higher-end branch and known for its pared-back style and colour palette. Don’t get us wrong, the designs might look pretty simple at first glance, but it’s all about the fine detail. Whether it’s a unique way of stitching or a different cut, Cos always finds some way to put a spin on its clothing. We say it’s time to give Cos a chance, especially with three out of five men already wearing Zara.
Cos, multiple locations North Bridge Road and Orchard

You can’t go wrong with this one. Part of London’s fashion heritage, Fred Perry probably coined the art of “athleisure” before it actually became a thing. A simple black t-shirt with its iconic embroidery – the laurel wreath – exudes minimalist coolness.
