HIT A STYLE HOME RUN

The baseball jacket has stepped up to the plate as one of menswear’s new key pieces

It’s a joke around the office that I’m a bit obsessed with bomber jackets. From MA-1 military styles to padded and suede numbers, I’ve got them all. But there’s always room in my wardrobe for another, and I’ve already spotted it. Inspired by the blouson jackets worn by the American sport’s biggest teams, the baseball style has upped its game with this sleeker, less decorated look: a lack of logos and a slimmed silhouette give it a more up-to-date feel. Combine with the signature shine of the fabric and classic press stud fastenings and you’ve got all your bases covered.
