A well chosen blazer is your best friend as we head into Spring/Summer


A well chosen jacket is your best friend as we head into Spring/Summer season.

With the weather changeable and the rain never too far from our door here in Ireland, you’ll always need to be ready for the unexpected when you’re preparing what you’re going to wear, but you also want to bring a bit of colour and vibrancy after a dull winter with darker shades.

That’s where the perfect jacket will come in handy; it’ll keep you warm when the temperature dips and will look incredibly slick with a pair of sunglasses too. The folks at Magee 1866 have specialised in making high quality menswear for over a century, so it’s safe to say they know what they’re doing, and their Spring/Summer collection for 2014 is a perfect example of that.

This brown ‘Unstructured’ jacket is a perfect transition piece, and being a blend of wool, silk and linen, it’s not going to be as heavy and warm as the type of jacket you’d need on a winter’s day.

Going even lighter in shade and in material, the ‘Unstructured’ brown linen jacket is also a perfect piece that will liven up some darker trousers, jeans or even boldly coloured chinos, making sure that your outfit stands out without screaming ‘over the top’.

As the temperatures get warmer, you don’t need to lose the jacket either, which is good news because a smart casual look on a warm summer’s day grabs plenty of attention. This blue linen jacket is perfect for matching with light colored trousers from beige to white, and will work perfectly if the two are broken up by a classic brown belt.

But, you’re going to need something else that makes up the rest of the outfit too, of course. If the weather takes a turn for the worse, a classic quilted jacket will keep the wind at bay in style, while a simple but bright green and white striped shirt with thin strips of colour will be easy to match and adds colour in a subtle way.

You can check out the full collection on the Magee website to get yourself kitted out as the warmer weather approaches.
