The Last Word

A jacket's for life, not just for Winter

The jacket holds a special place in our wardrobe. A statement item that we’re happy to splash a bit more cash on.

While it’s getting too mild for your cherished pea coat or winter Parka, the weather still necessitates some protection from the elements. This is where seasonal jackets come into their own. Unless you’re spending the entire season in foreign climes, the unpredictability of the British weather will mean that you’ll find yourself calling upon your trusty outerwear more times than you’d imagine.

Whatever you plan to do this summer, let the Last Word help you find the perfect seasonal jacket for every occasion.

The Weekend

A Mod classic made famous by Paul Weller, the Parka is the perfect weekend jacket for a scooter rally, a game of football, or wherever your weekend may take you. Our light, summer-weight version of this style classic features all the pockets you’ll ever need, meaning you’re prepared for whatever your weekend throws at you. The hood and fishtail will also ably protect you top to bottom from any eventual downpours.

The Commmute

The Mac is the definition of the smart-casual jacket, and as such is the ideal outerwear for the summer commute. It looks fantastic over a suit and will ensure you always arrive at work in style.

Our cropped Mac is a seasonal update of this menswear icon, with the 100% cotton construction and shorter body length retaining all the style and clean lines of the original, while making it more comfortable for the warmer months.

Drinks

Summer is the perfect time to take in a few casual beers with your mates or significant other. The fine weather presenting the opportunity to enjoy a host of different venues, from country pubs to city centre beer gardens.

While it will be warmer, it’s still Britain, and you’ll want a smart, stylish jacket to help you make the transition from warmer day to cooler night, and our Trucker jacket is just the thing. Constructed from cotton twill and available in deep navy or crisp white the Ben Sherman trucker is well detailed with Ben Sherman-branded, jean stud fastenings. An easy wearing wardrobe hero.

Any Occasion

While we believe every jacket featured so far is suitable for any occasion, the Harrington, in particular, offers the versatility to handle any summer activity. Our new cotton Harrington gives you all the features of our famous Mod staple in a new lightweight construction.
