Trip of a lifetime: Menswear returns to the 1970s
Autumn menswear returns to an era of rule-breakers, nonconformists and revolutionaries: the 1970s.

The tweed jacket
Back in the 1970s, coloured tweed offered a twist on the traditional countryside fabric. This time around, choose a discreet herringbone pattern and pair with a chambray shirt for an iconic look
The patterned shirt
Not the loud patterns of 1970s cliché. Subtle, abstract prints shirts give a modern feel to a vintage trend. The key is to look for patterns with very small motifs
The belted cardigan
A 1970s revival wouldn't be complete without a belted cardigan. Stick to plain colours and classic cable knits; Starsky & Hutch enthusiasts take note
The shearling coat
Once the preserve of Del Boy, the sheepskin – or shearling – overcoat is given a makeover. The fit across the shoulders and back should be as narrow as is practical
The quilted jacket
Popular in the 1970s, lightweight quilted jackets – another classic rural garment – were often cut from fabrics like satin. Not this time; cotton or nylon will suffice
