Like days off and glasses of fine single malt, jackets fall into the category of things you can’t have too many of - within reason. After all, they’re incredibly versatile: for every outfit you’ve got, there’s a jacket that would coordinate just perfectly. And they work throughout the year, whether you’re transitioning from outdoors to air-con on a balmy day or dealing with unpredictable weather and changing seasons.

 

With this in mind, there’s always good reason to restock your jacket selection. Here are some essential, timeless styles that every man should own, plus some of-the-moment updates.

 

THE BOMBER JACKET 

Bomber jacket were never designed with style in mind: they were originally just for pilots, after all. But this commitment to functionality is what makes them so timeless. They’re lightweight, protective and masculine.

 

The update Technical fabrics emphasise this piece’s utilitarian roots, and look totally contemporary. Thom Browne and Acne Studios are creating versions that hit the balance between timeless and timely.

 

  

THE DENIM JACKET

Equal parts rugged and relaxed, a good denim jacket is one you’ll wear for years. If you’ve shied away from getting one because you live in your jeans and you’re afraid to double up, use this as a good excuse to get into wearing chinos.

 

The update There’s a strong Americana vibe working its way through menswear at the moment: don’t hold back from going full lumberjack and teaming your denim jacket with a plaid shirt and work boots.

 

 

 

THE LEATHER JACKET

The leather jacket has been cool since before cool was a thing. Sometimes, the original is the best, and in this case it was Marlon Brando in 1953’s The Wild One. All these years later, it’s still hard to beat that look: leather biker, white T-shirt and jeans. Perfect.

 

The update Many designers are focusing on shearling right now, and a cosy collar on your jacket is a great way to wear the look. Check out Stella McCartney’s version.

 

 

 

 

 

THE PUFFER JACKET

It’s a familiar scene: a biting wind outside, stuffy heating inside, a mad rush from one place to the next. This is where the puffer jacket comes into its own. They’re lightweight and compact, and easy to layer over any outfit, smart or casual.

 

The update Canada Goose focuses on functionality; for a more style-centred approach, take a look at the latest pieces with bold contrast panels from the experts at Moncler.
