Summer might be coming to a close, but it’s not quite time for full-on coat season yet. Instead, we’ve reached the slice of the year that’s ideal jacket weather.
A tailored jacket is a useful piece to have in your between-seasons line-up: lightweight enough to take last bursts of sunshine in its stride, but a crucial extra layer when the air turns a bit cooler.
And if you pick one up in the sale, you’re getting all of that wardrobe mileage at a great price too. What’s not to like? Here’s our pick of five jackets in our end-of-season sale that’ll see you smartly into autumn.
Blue goes with just about anything so, along with simple notch lapels, flap pockets and a single vent at the back, you’ll get lots of wear out of this versatile Moss London jacket. Its textured cloth will transition from summer to autumn nicely too. Pair with tailored trousers for an easy weekday office look or pull out its hidden pocket square to dress it up for any last summer weddings.
Made from an open-weave cloth in an all-natural blend of wool, silk and linen, this half-lined Moss 1851 jacket is a breathable option for the last of this year’s sunny weekends. Its warm-grey tone and patch pockets lend a casual feel that’ll work well with chinos and a fine knit, while its tailored fit means it’ll also scrub up nicely with a shirt and textured tie.
The sale’s a great time to invest in more premium pieces, like this Hardy Amies windowpane jacket. The Savile Row brand’s well-known for its luxurious fabrics and this comes in a smooth wool-rich cloth that’s woven with a touch of silk and linen. Windowpane checks have had a resurgence in the last few years that’s set to continue for a good while yet, so you can wear this well into 2019 too.
You’ll never go wrong with a tailored navy blazer, but the sale’s a great opportunity to upgrade yours to this Moss 1851 travel version. It’s cut from 100% wool performance cloth that’s tightly woven to bounce back from creases. Buy now and you’ll find it fast becomes a trusted staple for busy weeks and keep it on-hand for business trips or adding a smarter layer to your suitcase for weekends away.
This Moss London jacket’s light green shade will keep the warm-weather feeling going as long as possible if you’re not quite ready to retreat into autumn just yet. Better yet, soft shades of green are on-trend for SS19, so once autumn truly kicks in you can pack it away and have it ready to whip out as soon as the warm weather reappears next year.
