The aviator jacket guide

Men about town need a few fashion staples: a decent pair of brogues, chinos, jeans and some finely cut shirts immediately spring to mind. An addition to that list is the classic aviator jacket. The surplus-inspired, fighter-pilot classic is making a big noise on civvy street.

Perfectly timed to coincide with the 70th anniversary of the Battle of Britain and inspired by fashion designer Christopher Bailey’s sterling work at Burberry, aviator jackets are the must-have outer garment for chaps this winter.

Below are some of our favourites; and don’t panic, there’s jackets to suit every wallet.
