The TOPMAN x James Long collaboration collection features a slew of the designer's eclectic knitwear selects. This menswear line takes inspiration from the 90s, channeling a retro grunge aesthetic that is both edgy and effortlessly elegant.

From heavy and patterned knits and layered shirts to distressed denim looks, the TOPMAN x James Long collection pays homage to the rock and roll style of the designer's favorite musical icons including the Sex Pistols, Bobby Gillespie and Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones.

Model Reece Sanders stars alongside Kirsty Davies in a lookbook that showcases a contemporary take on the classic wool sweater. Whether patterned, tone-blocked or patch-work accented, these ornate knitwear pieces are never crafty and dated but instead epitomize the true meaning of cool.
