Fury­gan Sher­man jacket Used for: 1 year Price: £399.99 Info: fury­gan.com

Ooh, this jacket’s a tight fit. Other of­fice hang-arounders call me a waif, and yes I have a 36in chest. But get­ting into this item re­quires ef­fort, even af­ter a whole year’s stretch­ing. Squeez­ing my (hardly) burly fore­arms through the tiny sleeves al­most cuts off blood sup­ply to my hands. This is the most I’ve ever suf­fered in the name of fash­ion. Prac­ti­cal­i­ties are thin on the ground. There’s a re­mov­able ther­mal waistcoat, tiny pock­ets on the front and a larger one in the breast. El­bows are re­in­forced with ex­tra leather, and the D3O shoul­der and el­bow ar­mour is Level 1. Up­grade this, and the jacket be­comes more crash­able than its in­sanely high price point sug­gests. £400.
