1. Calvin Klein:

£179, calvinkleininc.com

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.

2. Gap

£39.95, gap.eu

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.

3. Zara

£69.99, zara.com

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.

4. Burton

£45, burton.co.uk

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

£198, thecorner.com

 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

£665, paulsmith.co.uk

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.

7. Carhartt

£125, carhartt-wip.co.uk

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

£75, supremebeing.com

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

10. Topman

£80, topman.com

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.
