Style Manual FW20: The Season’s Must-Have Pieces
Sweatpants were fun for the first few months, but now it’s time to elevate your casual look. Here, the pieces you need this season, and how to wear them.
Dress it up as a layering piece, or just throw it on to walk the dog. Either way, everyone should have at least one.

TOP TO BOTTOM: JOOP! JEANS ($1,598) BOSS ($1,495) HISO, AT HARRY ROSEN ($1,895)
A good winter hat is worth its weight in wool. Look for a thick cuff and a ribbed texture – and don’t worry about hat head.

Featured in 1973’s Live and Let Die and favoured by celebrities from Elvis to Keith Richards, the original Hamilton Pulsar was the definition of modern when it launched in 1970. Oth- er than a more easily readable LED screen and updated case, the new PSR retains all of its disco-era charm.
Mido Commander Gradient
The Mido Commander was ahead of its time in 1959, and this new model preserves that legacy with its equally bold looks. The case and bracelet are coated in matte black PVD, while a transparent acrylic dial puts the watch’s Swiss automatic movement on display. $1,350
Breitling Chronomat B01 42
Designed in 1983 for the Frecce Tricolori, Italy’s premiere air force squadron, and relaunched in early 2020, this Cold War-era timepiece is still synonymous with elite aviation in the 21st century.
Rado Captain Cook Bronze
The original Captain Cook arrived in 1962, just as SCUBA diving became fashionable. While Rado has kept much of the original design, including the chunky arrow hands and red date numerals, this Captain Cook features a bronze case, green dial and matching bezel.
Seiko Prospex SLA041
The 1975 predecessor to this diver’s watch featured cutting-edge technology like a one-piece titanium case, an innovative pressure gasket, and 600m of water resistance. This year’s re-release, limited to 1100 pieces, preserves its unique look while upping the water resistance to 1000m.
