Regular viewers of ASOS will know we've got something of a thing for David Beckham. We've charted his steady rise to the position of influential menswear icon, and he's landed our coveted Outfit Of The Day gong on more than one occasion.

So how does he do it? One word, people – confidence. Beckham always looks relaxed and that buys you a lot of breathing room. Take this little number, for example: we're not sure those are the right sneaks for this get-up, but when the rest of the outfit looks so good, he gets a free pass.

The slim, fitted, black denim is classic and practical for day-to-day wear, and the same goes for the black tee and superb leather bomber jacket. Starting with those strong foundations, he throws on his favourite rucksack (we've seen it more than once), a wallet chain and some textbook headwear, and keeps the whole thing fluid with a brilliantly battered old brown belt. Bow down.
