A classic of the 1970s and ‘80s, the Lois Tejana cord jacket is still popular today, especially at this time of year.
Lois is a strange label. It was literally everywhere back in the day, with this jacket proving popular in the 1970s and well into the 1980s. But then the label seemed to disappear. Presumably, it didn’t – other denim labels just got a lot more coverage.
And now Lois is back in the public eye, doing pretty much what it did decades back. Producing the kind of designs that never really go in or out of fashion. Clothing got any era. Like this jacket.
Stuarts of London seems to be the one place in the UK keeping the fire burning. I’m not sure I’ve seen the label anywhere else. And that’s perhaps why the new range of cord jackets has some exclusives at that retailer.
You can probably guess which ones. As a rule of thumb, the muted/classic colours are the all-year-round shades. The more pastel/colourful versions are the exclusives. All available colours are pictured here.
Pretty much all of the jackets are the thin cord vacation. If you want a jumbo cord jacket, there are still a couple around – I’ve added in a shot of one such jacket at the end of the page if you prefer a chunkier cord finish. Same price and much the same look, really.
Or just go thin cord, picking from the other jackets pictured here, and as I said, largely unchanged in terms of design since the 1970s.
That means a ‘Western’ trucker jacket with front pleats, buttoned tab adjusters at the hem and four pockets – two buttoned flap pockets at the chest and two side pockets. There are also branded gold-coloured buttons, some suede signature branding to the hem at the front left, and some woven tab branding on the left-hand chest pocket.
A regular fit for each too, and a short length that you would expect from this kind of jacket.
If you fancy sticking one on when the sun goes in over the spring and summer months (this is perfect to slip on in the evenings), then you can pick one up now for a price between £95 and £110, depending on the colour you opt for.
