Not just another take on the classic Breton top – this is actually an archive design from the 1970s, going by the name of the S.N.S. Herning striped naval top.
A gem from the Danish company’s 1979 range – and still looking sharp in 2010. For your money, you get a striped crewneck pullover that’s knitted in virgin wool, with three metal buttons on the collar, and with a slim fit.
Each piece is also signed by the person responsible for knitting it. Which I suppose is your guarantee of quality. Price? Available online for £159.

The classic knitted tie is making a comeback, offering up a preppy look for the modern era. You can buy cheap polyester or wool ones here and there, but for something with more class, check out these Boden silk knitted ties look pretty tasty.
Choose from contrast stripes or the spotted ones pictured above, all 100 per cent silk, with a silk backing for reinforcement. Widths aren't offered, but the shot of someone wearing one shows a pretty slim profile, reminiscent of the early 1960s.
Check out the full range at the site, with prices around the £45 mark.
