Trending: Utility Meets Style

19th Sep 2022

You may have noticed that over the last few years, our general sense of fashion has become more practical, with sneakers or jeans suddenly office appropriate, and sweatpants the new go-to for casual days out. This is due to the resurgence, of the utility trend popularized after WW2. In essence, utility represents functionality, versatility, and neutral, understated colors. For the best utility menswear this season, we have some great outerwear options you won’t want to take off.

Plenty of Pockets

We all need to carry the day’s essentials; phone, wallet, keys, headphones, sunglasses; and know the frustration of having to dig into your jean pockets to fit everything in.

Thanks to the Wilson Utility Jacket, that’s a problem of the past! Four large pockets adorn the front of this jacket, with press stud closures to keep your belongings safe on the go, but easy to open when you need to quickly grab something. You could even keep your beer upright whilst cooking a BBQ, or your water bottle in tow when you need both hands for something else.

The muted green of this everyday jacket makes it easy to style with jeans or chinos, and over either a tee, or a jumper. Simply zip up the front to keep out wind chill, and enjoy being on-trend without sacrificing style! The Wilson is available in sizes L - 7XL and LT – 3XLT in tall.

Whatever the Weather

It’s not always practical to carry around an umbrella, especially when the clouds haven’t made up their minds about raining yet. Having a water-resistant jacket, like our Travis Windbreaker, takes the stress out of dressing for the day. Fully lined, and equipped with a guarded zip front, an elastic cuff with Velcro fastening, and a hood with adjustable toggles, this casual layer exists to keep you warm and dry while looking your best. From fall evenings to winter mornings, you’ll want the Travis on hand.

Casual to Smart in a Second

If you find yourself struggling to find a jacket to wear during your morning commute to the office, then to dinner in the evening, look no further than the Reserve Hooded Jacket. The removable hood gives this jacket two looks, firstly a casual layered look for days out and about, and then a smart casual look you can enjoy your nights out in. Plus, with quilted lining, zip front and adjustable sleeve tabs, you’ll stay warm throughout. Not to forget those four handy pockets. You’ll rock the Reserve with a button up shirt underneath, or one of our neutral toned essential sweaters.
