So now the Olympics & Paralympics are over so is the summer so its time to invest in Autumn Winter outerwear…hang about though mother nature is still taking the piss and the temperature is up and down like a like a fiddlers elbow so what is needed is a jacket that fills the transition between Autumn & Winter. Hey Presto one that fits that bill is Wolsey’s Membury cotton canvas jacket. The original was designed for those soldiers facing variable climates, since it was relatively roomy, and had a detachable insulated lining which could be worn underneath if the temperature dropped.
Wolsey’s quilted version is heavily garment washed to give it an authentic look, and features two large bellow hip pockets and two medium-sized breast bellow pockets, and removable button on hood. Equally at home in town or on the battlefield (dont laugh I live up North!) the Membury jacket is given a contemporary city edge with the addition of a zip down nylon bottom flap, internal pockets and MP3 lead outlet.

Vintage, military-inspired outerwear is seeing some serious traction this summer, and UK-based YMC is right alongside the trend with this new Gloverall Waxed-Cotton Duffle Jacket. Remaining true to period-correct fabrics, the shawl-collar jacket is sourced from a heavy waxed cotton that repels moisture while keeping the wearer warm. It also features handsome leather cuff accents, and genuine horn toggle fasteners across the front. The jacket retails for £350, buy here
Regular readers of TSR will know that I am a massive fan of Stone Island and in particular their outerwear. The brand has had its fair share of bad press in the late 90’s and early 00’s with its association with football violence but the brand is now starting to gain a new following with the cooler kids on the street. They are attracted to the amazing technical features and fabrics but most of all their styling and the canny knack of getting the colours spot on season after season. Autumn Winter 2011 is no exception as you can see with their ‘Resin Canvas Jacket’. The jacket features a fixed hood, double cotton lining, and a front zip fastening. Available in Bluette and both Jade & Lime Green. Available here for a snip at £395
