A classic design and mid-gauge knit makes John Smedley’s jacket a firm fan favourite.
For those forever vacillating between the choice of a jacket or blazer, opt instead for John Smedley’s Oxland (£330) – a 24-gauge, extra-fine merino wool jacket that provides excellent insulation with a touch of finesse. Its soft-tailored look is paired with two large pockets at the front and striking notch lapels, and in a dignified silver shade, it pairs rather well with a T-shirt and your selection of dark denim. It also won’t look out of place with a shirt and tie at a more formal affair, making this your go-to jacket for times where you’d prefer to be at your most adaptable. www.johnsmedley.com
