Three of the Best

Lightweight Jackets

The end of summer/beginning of autumn is a fiddly time, style-wise. It's not quite cold enough to start with the advanced layering but still too hot for a big coat, so a halfway house is needed. And that's where the lightweight jacket comes in handy.

Here's three of the best jackets that'll take you through early autumn in style.

If jackets could win awards, this would win the 'most likely to have you impersonating Ryan Gosling in Drive' category. Matching a blazer hem with a ribbed collar, it's the grown-ups bomber jacket. Just remember: carrying a hammer and a bullet around with you is taking the homage too far. (£269, Oliver Spencer)

Folk
As much as we hate dressing purely for the rain, we have to accept that it's a part of life in the UK. And, as many an athlete has said, prior planning prevents poor performance. In this case, wearing this jacket will prevent you looking like a wet dog by the time you turn up at the office. (£210, Oi Polloi)

Norse Projects
Teaming with longtime collaborators Elka, Norse Projects have once again made the raincoat we'd be hard pressed to find fault with. This time they've created it in this 'butter nut' colourway, which would work well with either the standard indigo denim or grey flannel trousers. Like most raincoats, they can get a bit sweaty on the underground (raincoats are great at keeping all rain out, but also keep all heat in) so take if off in enclosed spaces. No one likes to stand near the sweaty man, no matter how nice his coat is. (£172, GoodHood)
