Simple summer jackets from K-Way

Arguably responsible for the consistent popularity of the pac-a-mac/ cagoule/ anorak over the years, K-Way have been creating purposeful, lightweight and simple-yet-effective outerwear for over 50 years.

A light, technical jacket is the kind of thing that no summer wardrobe is really complete without, especially when the reality of BST brings with it far more than just blazing sunshine. Almost every brand is known to dabble in light spring summer outer layers, but K-Way’s simple, practical and packable coats are certainly the original.

Classic styles like the Claude and Leon work perfectly alongside the resurgence in 90s sports styles we’ve seen this season and last from the likes of Umbro Pro Training and Adidas Originals, complementing technical layering, bright football shirt styles and of course, the bucket hat nicely.

For me, summer success is all about these kind of lightweight, outer pieces, long sleeve tees and thin loopback sweats, keeping you dry and comfortable while still looking great. Teamed up with a pair of shorts, Adilletes or Nike Flyknits, a t-shirt and bucket hat, an anorak is a super cool and easy way of staying practical, folding away into it’s own pocket once the weather sorts itself out.

You can pick up your K-Way at Selfridges today.
