“MAKE it simple but significant,” says Don Draper, a character in the popular American television drama series Mad Men.
Draper, who is known for his impeccable sense of style, may be a fictitious character but that one piece of advice is practical enough to be applied in the real world, especially when it comes to men’s style.
A simple yet significant jacket may just be the one thing that can make a big difference and turn nay to yay in a man’s ensemble.
If you are a guy looking for jackets from homegrown brands, here are some amazing picks curated from menswear fashion retail consultant, Konsvltan.
