    Slim fit trucker denim jacket by Levi's

    We're not going to pretend we understand the cycle of double denim, but we stuck our sartorial finger in the air and apparently it's "In". For now. Which means that Levi's slim fit trucker number is more than acceptable - it's stylish.

    Short rain jacket by Rains

    It never rains but it pours. Unless you're looking for a new coat, in which case this gallery is a veritable heatwave.

    Khaki Sherpa Coat by Gap

    We've often wondered what the point of a hood on a coat that isn't waterproof is. GAP has clearly been of a similar mind, rejecting the flapping excess in favour of a high sherpa-lined collar. As warm as it looks.

    Belted Trench coat by Marks and Spencer

    Squeezing in at under £100, this dapper trench coat from M&S looks a lot more jacket than £99 should be able to buy you. A shimmering blue patterned lining, slim fit styling with medium length, this will still be in style come next winter. And the one after that. In short, it's timeless.

    adidas GsG9

    Adidas try their hand at the classic parka jacket - and manage to nail it. Constructed from a heavy duty cotton and nylon Oxford shell, a drawstring waist and hood help keep the worst of winter at bay.

    Biker jacket by H&M

    Channelling their inner Hell's Angel, H&M's biker jacket is a far more manageable affair than a "proper" leather option (there are less studs for a start). Sporting a durable cotton build, rakish zip angle and clean lines, faking an interest in bikes never looked so good.

    Wool blend peacoat by Uniqlo

    Thanks to the trail-blazing sailors of the US navy, the double breasted peacoat hasn't been out of style for a good 100 years. Uniqlo's latest model takes a minimalist approach - no silly epaulettes or distracting zips, just a thick wool shell and buttoned double breast.

    Denim Builder jacket by Blue Collar Worker

    No, you don't have to hail from a manual labour background to pull off Blue Collar Worker's denim jacket - we doubt you'd want to get any saw dust/paint/cement mix on it for a start. Available in an astonishing range of sizes (extra small to XXL), best worn with worker boots and a beard.

    Packable commuter jacket by Levi's

    Although practical, the standard mac in a sack is usually little more than a bin bag with a zip. Introducing Levi's far more stylish alternative: a packable commuter jacket that you can stuff in your bag and happily wear to the (trendy) pub. Littered with air vents, which is apparently what commuters crave.

    Alfred hooded jacket by HYMN

    Navigating that tricky line between "too many pockets" and "not enough pockets", HYMN's Alfred jacket has three outer pockets sealed with rope toggles and inner pockets for phone and wallet. Ideally for layering, with just enough room for your favourite jumper underneath.

    Fur-lined sherpa by Native Youth

    Hailing from Manchester, Native Youth know a thing or two about pulling off a convincing retro parka coat. With a detachable hood, fleece lining and drawstring hem, it's a maroon window into 1960s style.

    Pixton Mac Jacket by Farah

    Farah gives the classic mac a modern rethink: their Pixton is a clean, contemporary take on a design that can often look a little fusty. Button fasteners on the neck and sleeves reduce the bulk. Best take a brolly if it looks like rain though.

    Parka Jacket by Only and Sons

    If you're looking for some heavy layers, turn to Only and Sons. As well as a detachable faux fur lining for the hood, their parka sports an nylon outer, with full cotton lying and polyester padding. And if you're wearing too many layers to do the zip up, you can use the rugged clasps. Toasty.
