As the designer pieces of the new season emerge for sale online, one of the greatest investments you can make to stay one step ahead of the fashion curve this year is an on-point SS19 jacket. And with everything from parkas to bombers; denim to corduroy; monochrome to bright hues coming to retail, we've tapped some industry insiders for their takes on the highlights.

Though it's hard to pin down any distinct themes from choice to choice, what we can vouch for in the outcome below is some serious head-turning credentials. Having called upon the expertise of everyone from boutique storefronts such as Voo Store in Berlin to luxury fashion e-commerce giant Farfetch, these layering staples are sure to be the envy of style's most clued in.

Featuring designer names such as Bode, Craig Green, Sacai, and Burberry, take a look at the full selection here.




Helmut Lang

Buy at END.

"Typically Helmut Lang with its simplistic design and considered branding, this lightweight number – using Parley ocean plastic fabric – should see you right throughout the season."

Double-breasted Scarf Coat


JW Anderson

Buy at Matches

“A long overcoat is a must have for all seasons, and this elegant double-breasted version by JW Anderson would be my choice. The collar cleverly unfurls into a scarf – a unique touch that’s as useful as it is appealing.”

Damien Paul, head of menswear at MATCHESFASHION


Printed Jacket



Buy at Stylebop

I love how, under the direction of Riccardo Tisci, Burberry's heritage classics have been reinvented with a contemporary, fresh new look – and this jacket is no exception. It’s a luxe take on athleisure, with plenty of styling potential.

Lisa Wuerzinger, buyer at STYLEBOP.com





Buy at Mr. Porter UK

"New to MR PORTER for SS19, Billy offers elevated streetwear basics with its range of t-shirts, sweats and shirt jackets. I’ve had my eye on Billy for a while so was pleased when they agreed to produce a small range of exclusive pieces for us which includes this cotton-canvas jacket – the boxy shape and distressed finish gives it a vintage appearance."

George Archer, buyer at MR PORTER

Voo Store

Quilted Jacket


Craig Green

Buy at VooStore

"I'm obsessed with the new season's color green. Craig Green's classic quilted jacket has never looked this good."

Thibaud Guyonnet, buyer at Voo Store


6 Ball Coat


Raf Simons


"This oversized satin coat is a perfect example of Raf Simons’ vision of couture for men. The heavy satin outer adorned with silver balls is combined with a hidden printed t-shirt inside, creating a mix of casual elegance."

Browns Fashion
