Marks & Spencer Corduroy Suit Jacket

The tag-team is looking imperious on this 100 per cent lambswool jumper from department store John Lewis, with a slight texture and pattern to the central white block that almost makes it look like herringbone.

Lacoste x Alpha Industries Flight Jacket
The Alpha Industries MA-1 bomber jacket is one of those immutable menswear pieces like the Burberry trench or a Baracuta Harrington. Still, French sportswear icon Lacoste is confident enough to take a pop at the classic with this collaboration, decking its take with asymmetric contrast sleeves and a hood that converts into a faux-fur wing collar. We think they may just have bettered perfection.

Just keep a black canvas behind it. You don’t want to fight for attention with this sack.

Zara SRPLS Camo Shirt
