Once a fairly cheap and rugged jacket associated with building sites, the donkey jacket has got hip - at least this Oliver Spencer Black Melton New Donkey Jacket is anyway.
It retains the overall look and feel of the traditional donkey jacket, but throws a bit of smartness into the mix. Specifically, that involves a waxed cotton covering to the shoulders and buttoned tab collar, button front fastening, two front pockets, one coin pocket, one chest pocket with a waxed cotton trim, adjustable tabs to the sides, one back buttoned pocket and two interior pockets of which one has a button closure. It's also fully lined in a red fabric.
It sells for a lot more than the ones your army and navy used to knock out too, with a retail price of £345.Find out more at the My Wardrobe website
