A jacket from Nottingham-based menwear company Universal Works, modelled on their iconic chore-style Bakers Jacket with an updated buttoned chest pocket. It’s made from a velour-style fabric of 97% cotton and 3% polyurethane to add a little stretch. This special edition has a lovely paisley design.This is a regular fit – it’s a little bigger and boxier than their Bakers, but as a winter jacket usual size will leave a little more room for a midlayer.

This is a regular fit – usual size should be all good over a tee or light midlayer.
