Everyone’s favorite men’s online boutique is striking out on its own. Mr. Porter has launched its very own menswear line, Mr. P.
The pieces in the new collection are designed by their in-house team and is inspired by well-dressed men of the future and from the past. The luxury retailer describes Mr. P as “… a range of clothes that we ourselves have always wanted: stylish, yet understated; simple, but full of the small touches that matter; affordable, but made to the highest standards.”
The collection will be updated five times a year with seasonal staples. Chock full of simple, clean and classic designs, if you had to gut your closet and begin again, Mr P. would be the place to start.
We’ve combed through the sharp and stylish collection and picked our 10 favorite pieces for fall and winter.
1. Mélange Cotton-Jersey T-Shirt
Having tested “hundreds” of other cotton tees, Mr P. landed on this lightweight cotton-jersey tee that hits all the marks on texture, comfort and fit.
2. Striped Cotton-Jersey Breton L/S T-Shirt
An elevated take on the classic Breton, Mr P.’s interpretation is made from a soft cotton-jersey that has been cut with a regular fit.
3. Mélange Loopback Cotton-Jersey Sweatshirt
Made from varying colors of yarn that have been twisted together to create yet another mélange piece in the collection, Mr P. has created the one sweatshirt you need in your closet this fall.
4. Button-Down Collar Cotton Oxford Shirt
How do you make a plain button-down oxford shirt pop? Mr. P’s elevated version is designed with mother-of-pearl buttons, gusseted seams and a “flattering” regular cut for a unique spin on a classic.
5. Black Worsted Wool Trousers
These classic Worsted Wool trousers are an essential piece that every man should have in their wardrobe. They feature a French bearer under the waistband.
6. Slim-Fit Selvedge Denim Jeans
Made in Okayama, Japan, these narrow-loom selvedge denim jeans feature contrasting tobacco-colored stitching, a mid-rise waistband and a slim-fit.
7. Pleated Drawstring Trouser
These drawstring trousers prove that the athleisure look can be worn in the office. They feature subtle pleating and are slightly cropped at the hem. Look for these to drop soon.
8. 3 Color Pattern Crew Neck Merino Wool Sweater
Another not yet released piece is this merino wool jumper. This Italian-made sweater is knitted to form a unique jacquard pattern. Stay tuned for this classic item to drop.
9. Cable-Knit Merino Wool And Cashmere-Blend Sweater
Chunky, thick and made in Italy from a blend of merino wool and cashmere, this cobalt blue cable-knit sweater might be our favorite from Mr P.’s first collection. Looks cozy, doesn’t it?
10. Wool-Blend Felt Overcoat
Yet another elevated staple, this camel wool-blend over coat is an essential item that every man should own. Made from a wool-blend that’s been touched up with a bit of cashmere for added softness, the mid-layer bit of neoprene will help retain the overcoat’s shape–even when worn over layers.
