Best casual jackets for men this Spring

Often a lightweight jacket is missing from my clients wardrobes. They tend to have blazers and more technical jackets but a cool, casual weekend jacket is nowhere to be seen. If it's the same in your wardrobe, then I suggest you invest in one. Useful for evenings out when it gets a bit chilly, weekend lunches or a laid back trip to the pub. Here are some that I particularly like:

Oliver Spencer check bomber jacket style advice for men

The bomber's reign is still going strong. Perhaps you already have a plain one, so why not switch things up a bit with this great check one in the "fabric du jour" - seersucker? Oliver Spencer is master of the casual worn in look so his clothes instantly feel like they belong in your wardrobe. It'd look great with grey jeans and a simple white t-shirt or button down shirt.

Albam casual jacket Sartoria Lab style consultancy for men

Albam faux shearling trimmed cotton twill jacket

Light khaki is a useful colour to have in your wardrobe and with a detachable shearling collar it can go from being handy on the cooler days of Spring right through to Summer evenings. Albam tends to have a boxy fit so if you're stocky this is likely to suit you very well.

NN07 raincoat Sartoria Lab style adviser for men

NN07 Double Bryan 3-in-1 jacket

I spotted this one in Liberty when I was recce-ing for a clients personal shopping trip. I liked the look of it and then when I discovered there was a removable lightweight padded jacket, it's 100% waterproof and breathable, I fell head over heels for it! You can wear the inner jacket as a separate piece, wear the top layer without the lining or wear them both together. This certainly covers a lot of bases!

Closed pale blue jacket Spring jackets for men

Closed pale blue cotton cargo jacket

I liked the lighter more unusual colour of this one - this type of jacket usually tends to come in khaki and sand colours. It's still within most the safety zone of blue, and will look particularly good if you have a cool skin tone. (If you don't know - check out my Personal Colour & Style Consultation) Great with denim or navy chinos, this would make a useful lightweight jacket for weekends.

Joseph zip jacket personal shopping styling for men

Gorgeously simple and a great all rounder - this one is a little bit smarter giving you the option to wear it with smart chinos and brogues or jeans and trainers, it's a win win situation with this Joseph jacket.

Like to go shopping for a Spring jacket and an update to your casual wardrobe? Contact me about my personal shopping trips. This is what one client said recently about his shopping trip:

"Thank you so much for our session last week. Despite flagging towards the end of the day I had a super time and I’ll be coming back!"
