“It’s a staple,” says Hussain van Roos of his favourite jacket style: The Workman. “Every man needs to own quite a few of them.” It really is a solid investment for your wardrobe right now – the style has a certain streetwear edge that bombers have become too mainstream for, and the styling opportunities are practically endless.

Hussain is the master of casual cool styling, layering his navy workman jacket (top button only!) over a light blue shirt with straight-cut chinos.

A cap from The North Face (current post-normcore it-brand) gives the look that subtle not-too-in-your-face sense of branding.

Personal jewellery, like an armband and signet ring, are essential components in making the look truly individual.

A classic pair of Vans in an unexpected colour tie it all together. You won’t achieve this kind of vibe in boots. Streetwear style requires a sneaker, but a workman jacket will adapt to whatever style or level of formality you need it to without losing its signature cool factor. That’s why it’s such a smart buy.
