Parkers are out this season, and leather is in, but you’ll still need a hood to keep the frost off of your noggin. Most leather jacket with hoods look like cast-offs from the wardrobe of some gangster flick set in 1980s Noo Yoik and, apparently, that’s not a good look this season.
The solution lies with Topman’s mock-leather (good for all you veggies then) bomber jacket (£60), that comes with a handy head-covering, which is definitely more hood than hoodlum. Or, as a more casual, but I think cooler, alternative, wear a hoody underneath a pea-coat. Pea-coats are never out of fashion.
