Where the runway meets the street

While we’re still not 100% on corduroy suits – the 70’s vibe is a little hard for us to let go of – we can co-sign a cord jacket. This one, by Margaret Howell’s diffusion line MHL, is sharp enough to be worn as a blazer to a semi-formal function – note the breast pocket, perfect for getting your mad men on. We know it’s sartorial sacrilege recommending contrasting corduroys, but it’d go pretty well with some tan cord trousers. If you’re gonna go cord on cord, just remember to wear trainers – shoes can tip this into ‘biting your grandad’s style’ territory. (Margaret Howell)
