Topman varsity jacket

THE VARSITY JACKET

Topman varsity jacket, £65

This all-American classic has sporting pedigree as well as 50s charm. Special mention goes to the contrast taping on the cuffs, collar and hem – the kind of detail that makes this varsity jacket top of the class. Pair it with the matching shorts for the full home-team kit.
Topman chore jacket

THE CHORE JACKET

Topman chore jacket, £55

The term ‘chore jacket’ gets thrown around a lot. It covers a huge range of styles and shapes, but they all have similar features: a simple, boxy shape, a short collar, buttons up the front, and a whole load of pockets. This one spices up the classic recipe by adding a subtle print and rugged silver buttons. Delicious.
Topman denim jacket

THE DENIM JACKET

Topman denim jacket, £40

The denim jacket has been embraced and reworked by almost every rebellious group you can think of – from cowboys to punks. Think of it as a blank canvas: leave it how it is (that minimalist approach makes a strong statement), or personalise it with badges or pins. There are no wrong answers.
Topman suede jacket

THE SUEDE JACKET

Topman faux suede jacket, £70

Think of this as the denim jacket’s grown-up brother. It takes the same Western-inspired shape and adds a layer of luxury that feels soft but substantial. Plus, faux suede means you won't have to be quite so precious about keeping it out of the rain or the club.
Topman bomber jacket

THE BOMBER JACKET

Topman MA2 bomber jacket, £55

The famous MA-1 bomber jacket was first sighted in the 1950s and has gone on to become a firm favourite because of its function and affordability, and a ready source of inspiration for menswear. This welcome update (a variation on the MA-2) adds a collar to the classic design, and we salute that.
