Much (if not most) of what you wear on a daily basis started out life doing battle. Your trusty white T-shirt, those chinos, that bomber jacket – all of these pieces have their roots in military uniform rather than designers’ mood-boards, having gradually transitioned from war zones to civilian wardrobes over the years.
For 2020, it’s the field jacket that’s fronting the ranks. Lightweight, cut in a slightly boxy, resolutely masculine fit and proffering more pockets than you can shake an unpinned grenade at, it’s a lean, mean, style-enhancing machine. Like many jackets, versatility is key here and whether it’s worn in isolation or as part of some serious autumn winter layering, a field jacket will work with all manner of get ups.
