The Work Jacket. Your transeasonal best friend. Whether you're wearing yours on the commute to the office, gymming, pubbing, parking or even when a blazer just feels a little too much, the casual work jacket is a versatile wardrobe staple every guy needs. As we say farewell to the last of the summer days and enter the cooler autumnal months, a jacket that can be worn in a variety of ways is imperative to navigate these in-between periods of unpredictable weather.
For the Autumn Winter 2020 season, Garbstore has re-imagined our much loved work jacket silhouette in a heavyweight Japanese cotton wool blend in versatile tones of pewter grey herringbone or navy. Inspired by a vintage 1950's boxy shape, this is a style that is as much at home paired with a smart shirt and trousers as it is styled with a casual sweatpant. And for when things turn colder, layer it under a heavier-duty winter coat as a tonal textural layer for braving that daily commute.
And for long time fans of the brand, the work jacket features a multitude of cleverly designed details that you would come to expect from Garbstore such as concealed front button fastening, high neck break point and unexpected asymmetrical front bluff pockets. Shop the work jackets and our suggested styling options below as well as the rest of the Autumn Winter 2020 collection.

Garbstore’s Autumn/Winter 23 collection is inspired by the Mountain Grill café that once inhabited Portobello Road, the birthplace of British beatnik culture and a hotbed for underground magazines and up-and-coming artists.
