BOSS – SUEDE JACKET
Suede’s laid-back looks and versatile nature make it a classic style choice, but that doesn’t mean you have to go whole-hog traditional with it. This deep berry red BOSS biker jacket is a fresh take on the fabric, fusing a classic autumnal hue with a neat, contemporary cut that makes a style statement without shouting about it. The jacket’s button-close stand collar, subtle front and side pockets, and zip fastening create an elegant and linear silhouette – layer it with a chunky knit and you’ll still have a look that’s dapper, or wear it over a shirt and tie to add an air of individuality to your City look.

Brixton – Spokane Jacket
Military-inspired coats have an enduring air of cool that mean they never go out of fashion – utilitarian looks and functionality will always be covetable. This piece stays true to that blueprint, with plenty of practical features such as quilted fleece lining, water-repellent coating and a hidden chest pocket all wrapped up in an army olive green. What gives this jacket extra edge, however, is its story – Californian outerwear brand Brixton is named after The Clash song ‘Guns of Brixton’, giving it a rock’n’roll edge before you’ve even put it on. As the song goes, “the money feels good, And your life you like it well…”
