When it comes to fashion, owning a ‘one of a kind’ item can require both a long period of time and a large amount of cash. So instead, we’d advise you take advantage of a splendidly dapper new collection from Jigsaw – unveiled exclusively here in ShortList – that offers a ‘10 of a kind’ sartorial experience for a fraction of the time and price.
The aptly named Jigsaw Limited Collection features three very different but equally stylish jackets. Only 10 of each style have been manufactured – every one sports a tag proclaiming ‘1 of 10’, ‘2 of 10’ (you get the idea) as proof – so if you like what you see here, you’ll have to act quickly.
There’s a linen cotton twill coat that incorporates restored Japanese denim (£425), as well as a Prince Of Wales linen fly-front coat (£340) based on vintage Fifties jackets and made with cloth developed exclusively for Jigsaw.
We’re most excited about the third offering, though, which is pictured. This fisherman-style proofed cotton hooded jacket (£395) features glue-taped seams that make it properly waterproof rather than simply ‘showerproof’. Insert your own gag about it being “perfect for the British summer, then” here.
The range is available instore and online from 18 April. What are you still doing reading this? Go, go, go!
