The 10 Best men's jackets

1. Calvin Klein:
£179, 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, -
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, -
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, -
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, -
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, -
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, -
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, -
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, -
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.

Don’t let the non-summer get you down – there’s plenty of stylish gear to keep you looking cool and staying dry
