City Beats: Urban Style Essentials

Urban fashion comes in two forms: bright and bold or low key and subtle - and for Timbuktu, it’s all about understated style.

Street style can mean many things, but we’re here with the actual fashion you’ll wear. The clothes that look just as good for work as they do at your favourite bar - function and style in perfect harmony.

After all, you need to be protected from all the elements while you’re in your element.

Read on to discover the perfect clothing to wear around the city with Timbuktu…

Parka Coat

A style icon that’s endured for decades, the Parka has its roots in culture and the 90s Britpop explosion from Manchester. Now, you can share in its history with Timbuktu’s take on this classic jacket, which is as dependable as it is stylish with its two-layer waterproof and breathable fabric.

Our Zarho Waterproof Parka features an incredible faux fur trim for extra warmth when the cold wind howls through the streets. Its forest colour compliments the subtle tonal branding and striking sleeve logo. This matches perfectly with dark jeans or trousers and trainers.

Harrington Jacket

The Harrington jacket is ideal for temperatures that aren’t quite warm enough for you to go without a jacket. This fashion icon is a must-have for wardrobes everywhere thanks to its effortless style. Timbuktu has taken inspiration from this classic coat and added valuable waterproofing bonuses.

The Alatona Water-Resistant Harrington is lightweight and water-resistant, ensuring style meets performance. Guarding against light showers, the Alatona is available in classic navy with subtle branding for enduring style and subcultural cool for every city scene.

Waterproof Jacket

Waterproofs are often brightly coloured or rarely considered a fashionable piece of clothing - but Timbuktu has set out to change that. Like with our Zarho Parka, our waterproofs are clean, minimalist and smart, perfect for modern city styling and versatile fashion.

The Kende Waterproof Jacket is precisely that, thanks to its clean black design. This is a professional and smart-looking jacket with high-end performance that’s lightweight and warming, marking it out as the ideal all-season coat for every scene and style.

Bubble Jacket

The bubble jacket look is firmly in style and is an all-rounder through autumn and winter for everyone. Puffer jackets, padded jackets - they are all the same style and Timbuktu has crafted its take on this now-iconic trend that combines performance with style.

Our Nanga and Sankore coats are stylish takes on the bubble jacket design. Both feature down insulation, making them extremely warm and very lightweight - ideal for not feeling too weighed down. The Nanga is a smart jacket that can be worn for more formal occasions while the Sankore will keep you dry thanks to its elasticated hood.

Tops & Tees

If there is a piece of clothing that will never go out of style, it’s the tee - including long-sleeves. These tops go with everything for everything, from work or drinks to city walks or an escape into nature. Timbuktu has brought its performance roots to iconic cotton t-shirts for versatile style.

Timbuktu’s classic collection T-Shirt, Logo T and Boxy T are ideal for layering in cooler seasons or on their own when spring and summer roll around. Both the Classic T and Boxy T provide low key but striking styling details with subtle embroidered chest logos. These tops are at their best when paired with dark jeans or trousers.

Long-Sleeve Tops

For an ultimate casual but cool top, the long-sleeve T is a must-have. Ideal for spring and autumn, these shirts provide a chilled vibe for those hectic urban days. Timbuktu’s long-sleeve tops are crafted for outdoor performance or exploring a city’s heart.

Our Classic Long-Sleeve T-Shirt can be used for layering or on its own with a relaxed fit that’s perfect for easy down days. Available in a range of colours, the Classic Long-Sleeve features a subtle embroidered chest logo that’s ideal when styled with denim and trainers.

Sweats & Hoods

A staple of every wardrobe, sweatshirts and hoodies are the do-it-all piece of clothing. They can provide subtle styling with jeans or complement gym wear after a workout. Timbuktu has brought its take on the effortless style winner with a range of hoodies that match every need for urban life.

For the understated look, our Classic Hoodie is just what’s needed and is ideal for the contrasting style trend with a white tee. The Classic Sweatshirt also features subtle branding while our Full-Zip Classic Hoodie offers a jacket-like design. Each hoodie is made with a tailored fit and goes with jeans or trousers.
