I normally wear sweaters, cardigans/casual check shirts wiith jeans/chinos/cargos and boat shoes,

but want a lightweight ish jacket to wear on colder days, and evening to the pub/restuarants, etc

 

but being out of touch with fashion trends was wondering what are the current/always stylish jacket styes that are versatile for what i wear?

 

any specific colours recommended?

 

thank you

Don't expect a reply to a thread after 2 hours, especially when it's a commonly asked topic. I would look into Harrington jackets, bomber-style jackets, and stuff from Barbour.

Try a bomber cotton jacket

Clearly, attire for 26 year-olds are a very niche part of the world of men's apparel.

I'd say depending on your body type, either a nylon or cotton moto-jacket, or a cotton military jacket.

If we're talking summer coats and extemely casual I wear a Harrington or even a 3rd pattern jungle fatigue top which has been starched. A little colder and I have a sand, brown, blue, green, read sports coat with a houndtooth pattern. Even have a Levi demin jacket which I wear at times but don't make the mistake of  wearing double denim i.e. denim jacket and denim jeans

thank you for the replies.

i quite like the military style jackets

 

Michael , i have a slim body type

not too keen on bomber style jackets or harringtons - they're too plain in design 

 

What are the most versatile colours in a military jacket?

navy or charcoal

I vote yes for the military style jacket, my son's in his early 20's and loves this style. But I can't blame him, as it is quite stylish and fitted right for your body type can be flattering.

Exactly which jackets are you referring to by "military style jacket"?

Gap and Old Navy have the trooper jackets made in cotton.
