The Idle Man: How To Style Outerwear

From Rains to Farah Vintage, Cuckoo to Criminal Damage, we’ve put together 4 of the best and most stylish lightweight outerwear garms with tips on how to style them because lets face it, you’re going to need it in the UK’s turbulent August weather.

First up it’s a Farah Vintage jacket with it’s all-over leaf print that we think is super zany. Stay away from printed trousers, in fear of standing out like an intergalactic panther though. Instead, stick to a burgundy tone which complements the island blue. The Medway Jacket goes great accompanied with Farah slim fit jeans and some Base London plimsoles.


If anyone knows how to do a raincoat well it’s Danish company Rains, the proof’s in the name. They’ve reinvented the bad cargo short pattern from the 90s and produced a modern interpretation of a long classic rain jacket. It’s got a matte surface and is comfortable even when worn on top of warm layers, without you looking like the Michelin man. It’s bold and tailored, so stick with some Criminal Damage skinny black jeans with Frank Wright desert boots.


You might think this print is abit cuckoo, but thats because it is. Cuckoos Nest brand have created a fierce black windrunner jacket with a contrasting tessellation print on the upper shoulders and sleeves in orange, yellow and blue featuring a mix of floral, leaf and star in a kaleidoscopic fashion. Keep the autumnal colours with this tonal grey and brown Mi-Pac and some bleached wash skinnies from Religion.


Criminal Damage have achieved a trend-led streetwear edge with this ribbed MA1 jacket which boasts an embroidered ‘CD’ breast logo with technical features including a leather zip puller to front and zip arm details. Stay subversive in some Religion pre-faded finish jeans and some Base London chelsea boots.
