Seen in Store: cropped jacket
Imagine my surprise, when walking through the usually tame mens department of H&M did my eyes stumble upon this particular item.
It is a very attractive piece, cropped to sit just above the waistband. The inverted notched collar and the mirrored detail at the elbow work well to achieve a sense of minimalism and slickness.
The only point of contention is that the contrasting fabric back felt too cheap. It would have been improved tenfold if a thicker fabric had been used. While it would have pushed the price up, it would also have resulted in at least one extra sale on my part.
Hopefully this is the start of more catwalk inspired pieces filtering through to the under developed mens highstreet.
