MHL Staff Jacket



—01. Staff Jacket in drill cotton.
—02. Styled by Margaret Howell Japan.


One of the most familiar looking styles in the MHL collection is the Staff Jacket, its casual styling and utilitarian influences making it something of a trademark garment. This tan cotton drill version is a great tone, perfect for the transition from late summer to early fall, and a versatile layer come winter. It's one of several new items recently made available in Japan, but our own selections from the collection will be filtering into the Stockroom very soon.

I can't help but look like a chump in any sort of blazer. I'm not sure why, but it just doesn't work for me. Not that I mind too much.

Even though that Grey herringbone EG Irving for fall looks like a great, and warm winter layer I think I'm going to find it tough to get past the feeling of "hey I'm wearing a sports coat". I'd like to try it with the collar popped and the buttons all done up, to make sure, but still.

Same goes for this MHL jacket too.

Oh well, we all have our quirks...

Still: I can't wait for the weather to drop enough to bring back the MHL "Bird Shooter".

For myself personally, the understated-ness of the men's range were a bit more spruce in heavier pieces of knitwear and the use of leather buttons. It would have been more beautiful just to have the softer rounded buttons. However, the navy cotton gabardine jacket was definitely superb. It would be great to have pieces that are lightweight in twill, soft cottons for all year round wear.
