FLANNELS Five: Trophy Jackets For Autumn

FLANNELS Five: Trophy Jackets For Autumn

As we change gear into autumn, our main priorities tend to be keeping warm, staying abreast of the sporting news, and making sure we get the first proper Sunday roasts of the season in. Whilst we can advise you on the former, the latter two are up to you. Unless you’re a hardened man from somewhere up north, staving off the chill demands practical clothing and a commitment to layers. However, you shouldn’t have to forgo your sense of style just to regulate your temperature. From Burberry to Prada, designers are churning out statement jackets (AKA trophy jackets) that combine function with style, meaning you’ll never have to renege on your fashion credentials in order to avoid a cold again. Read on for the best of the season.
