Three casual jackets to get your hands on. Now.
S/S 2016 saw a line-up of great easy jackets, everything from bombers to baseball for those non-blazer occasions. We pick three of the best for you.
Black wool Teddy jacket with leather accents (pictured above)
A brand that is so hot now, its Creative Director can suddenly decide to shift his AW16/17 menswear show in LA a week before it was due to show in Paris. Hedi Slimane might be surprising, but his bomber jacket is a classic piece that's too cool for school. Sleek, with luxe detailing like paneled leather design elements, its timeless style makes it a spot-on piece to start with.
Khaki cotton garberdine bomber
Alexandre Mattiussi, the Owner/Designer of French label Ami, is one of the hottest menswear designers to watch right now. It’s not that he’s doing anything extraordinarily attention-grabbing with his shows, instead, he lets the effortless ease of his extremely wearable clothes do most of the enunciation. Sharp but not too fussy, his cropped zip-front jacket is a perfect case in point. It’s chic enough to throw over a summer suit, yet slips over jeans and a tee just as easy.
Khaki green cotton military jacket
Because military style is a stalwart of menswear, this fine example from Tomas Maier of Bottega Veneta has already earned its lived-in softness. Not to mention the masterfully hand-worked dimensional colour fade, so you can rock the trend without looking like a new recruit.
