Unfortunately in the UK a trusty jacket is something you’re going to require all year round. As we know all to well, it can be bright sunshine one moment and torrential rain the next. This being the case we thought we’d give you the lowdown on some of the best jackets this season.
Safari Jackets are back with a bang and right on trend for this Spring/Summer. Although this is a style that has been pushed to the fringes of fashion since Rodger Moore’s James Bond days it’s definitely made a comeback this season. Our particular favourites come from some of the best loved British Heritage brands out there Barbour and Hunter. The Barbour Rig Casual Jacket is a classic example of the style made from woven cotton, it features the classic four pocket design with a detachable hood. Hunter’s alternative is a belted option and created from a waxed coated nylon makes it ideal in protecting you from the elements.
This bomber jacket is a big trend for S/S’15 and a perfect style to work as your transitional piece this season. The bomber is something we’ve been seeing on the catwalk for the past few years and more recently it has become firmly established as a staple of mens urban style. Some of our favourites this season include the Paul Smith Navy Leather option and also the the J Lindeberg Navy & White Quilted Bomber. One of our stand out items for the season has to the Stone Island Membrana TC Jacket constructed from the brands signature Hyper Light fabric.
Denim is another big trend for this summer and particularly in its jacket form. Denim jackets were made popular by americana trend setters such as James Dean and Steve McQueen. This also has to be one of the easiest trends to master if you’re after something simple, pair with a white t-shirt and you’re on to a winner. Take a look at Levis, Nudie and G-Star for some great options.
