1. Calvin Klein:
You’d do well to wear this jacket with a simple crew-neck T-shirt to avoid chafing. It works well for downtime, whether you’re paying heed to the Nineties revival or not.
This tomato-red jacket with pleasingly retro bright white zips looks a bit like John Travolta’s PE kit in Grease, which is no bad thing.
The humble blouson gets an update in modern and minimal tan cotton, complete with plenty of pockets, a shoulder patch and a utilitarian buckle collar.
There’s something a touch nostalgic and naïve about this hooded jacket made from light chambray. It’s a cool take on classic denim, but with a trendy and preppy feel.
5. Our Legacy
Swedish label Our Legacy takes classic minimalism as its starting point for this stylish blazer, and softens the tailored structure with pockets and rounded shoulders.
6. Paul Smith
The masculine wardrobe wouldn’t be complete without a sharply tailored blazer in a neutral colour. This pale grey version will easily match your existing togs.
A cream jacket may be tough to keep clean, but this canvas version is quite “urban cowboy” so will only improve as it becomes roughed up through use.
8. Tommy Hilfiger
£185, 020 7479 7550
The plaid shirt has become rather ubiquitous, but this lumberjack-inspired jacket is a bit different. The subtle cut and style lets the pattern do the talking.
9. Supreme Being
Not enough salmon pink in your wardrobe? Try this bomber by cool streetwear label Supreme Being. This is also a shade that will flatter any complexion
A light summery option, this blazer will work both as a casual option or to smarten up a scruffy outfit. And the powder blue shade is right on the fashion money.
