A lightweight jacket is your multi-tasking outerwear piece for SS16. Technical fabrics keep you dry and warm, whilst utility-inspired designs keep you looking cool.
Smart features like pack-away hoods and concealed pockets add practicality to this key menswear trend. The military look is on point for SS16 – wear a lightweight field jacket in khaki or airforce blue over a shirt and chinos for a superior smart casual look.
If a field jacket feels too outdoorsy, silky bomber jackets and light quilted jackets are a luxe alternative.
