Smart Buy - The Elbow Patch Jumper

Like tweed and pipes, the elbow patch is a feature still associated with a teacher from Dead Poets Society. Which is a shame, because it can add a welcome detail to an otherwise plain jumper and is actually rather useful too. And even better, given their proliferance on the high street this winter you'll no longer have to ask your Mum to sew them on. (£19.99, H&M)
