War bears no fruit except for your wardrobe. Most of what you adorn on a daily basis started out with a life-fighting battle. The trusted chinos, white tees, bomber jackets – all of these pieces have their roots in military uniform rather than the designer’s mood boards. Over the years, they have crept their way into civilian wardrobes.
For 2018, it is the field jacket that’s fronting the fashion ranks. Cut in a slight box, lightweight, and a resolutely masculine fit; it has a lean, mean, style enhancing touch to it.
This is probably why high-end designers from Brunello Cucinelli to Craig Green co-opted it in 2016 to make it that year’s must-own garment.
