Henri Lloyd for Oi Polloi AW11 Jackets

Henri Lloyd and Oi Polloi once again team up to put a lifestyle spin on some classic sailing jackets for a second season.

This time expanding the capsule collection from two jackets to three, Oi Polloi have taken the Viking Jacket, Hawker Smock and Consort RWR Jackets and given them some little touches to bring them into a more fashionable light. Using hardwearing materials and Henri Lloyd’s master craftsmanship, these jackets don’t just look good, they will last for a damn long time.

This season’s selection uses a much more subtle colour palette, replacing the bright colours of the last collaboration with dark red’s, olive’s and navy’s. There’s still the occasional eye-popping piece, such as the royal blue Viking jacket, but mainly it’s a more understated, Autumnal colour palette.

I’m a huge fan of this collaborative effort, and a proud owner of one the jackets from the first collection. The subtlety and modesty in these jackets, be it the minimalist perfection or the almost non-existant Oi Polloi branding, not only makes these timeless, but gives me a lot of respect for both brands.

All of the jackets are available now from Oi Polloi with a price tag between £150 and £275.
