FLANNELS Five: Of The Best New Jackets

FLANNELS Five: Of The Best New Jackets

We’re in the final throes of summer, and whilst the weather’s current track record suggests that we’re in for a relatively balmy September, it’s time to start thinking about your autumn wardrobe. The last couple of months have been hot to say the least. We shouldn’t complain, but we’re British, and after sweating our way through shirts and t-shirts on stuffy commutes we’re looking forward to more manageable temperatures (and perhaps even some drizzle). So, from denims to bombers, here are a few of the season’s best lightweight men’s jackets to see you through the transitional period.

JW Anderson Multi Pocket Denim Jacket

THE DENIM JACKET

Welcome to the world of J.W. Anderson. The London-based designer hails from Ireland and has gained a cult following of style-conscious men since the label’s launch in 2008. It’s wearable with a high-fashion edge, like this utility-inspired denim jacket.

Gucci GG Supreme Panel Contrast Jacket

THE REVERSIBLE BOMBER

Two for the price of one, but this isn’t on pre-prepared meals in aisle two at Waitrose. This is on Gucci – their new-season reversible jacket comes with the updated Sega patch logo on one side and the iconic Gucci GG Supreme print on the other. Mega.

Alexander Wang Competition Cord Anorak Jacket

THE OVER HEAD ANORAK

Pull this Alexander Wang jacket over your head and you’ll be ready to brave the British autumn rain. No, we haven’t travelled back in time to 1994 – this is AW18 and the over-head anorak is back in. You and your ‘do can thank us later.

Gucci Sega Reversible Bomber

THE COACH JACKET

Gucci's sports-inspired coach jacket combines everything we love about the luxe Italian brand – their knack of combining the house’s heritage codes with streetwear references in one neat garment.

THE STATEMENT JACKET

If a man had a repertoire of jackets, this Balmain bomber would be the party piece. Whilst you could layer it over a smart Tee for day, we’d recommend dressing up in your best garms and hitting the town in style.
