Barbour Dion Casual Overshirt Jacket

With the year going by in a huge blur, the fact that we’re now into August means that many of us will now be thinking about putting together our wardrobe for autumn. When it comes to autumn wardrobe staples, one that’s a must for the upcoming season is the mighty overshirt. They’re often overlooked, but overshirts are wonderfully versatile and can be effortlessly worn all year round. You can easily throw one on during the summer when things get a little chillier, or for creating the perfect layered look during the winter months. It’s the perfect piece for your transitional wardrobe, and we think it’s certainly worth investing in one if you haven’t already. When it comes to overshirts, it's difficult to get them wrong, so long as you choose the right brand. There are some that trump all others and we thought it our duty to dig them out for you.

Today, we’ve rounded up some of our top picks of men’s overshirts, with appearances from our own brands including Belstaff, Marshall Artist and Barbour, plus a few others you may enjoy. Whether you’re wanting to add to your collection or invest in an overshirt for the first time, let us get you started with some of our favourites.

Barbour International Dion Casual Jacket

Barbour International is known for creating pieces inspired by the biker look, combining practicality and style every step of the way. That’s especially true when it comes to this Dion Casual Jacket, that features a simple single colour design and is finished with the signature Barbour badge to the sleeve. Cut to a regular fit, this premium jacket is perfect for creating a relaxed silhouette, and there’s plenty of pockets for storing your essentials. We love this blue metal shade, but you can also choose this soft dusk pink which is an ideal colour for your transitional wardrobe.

Belstaff Camber Shirt

Belstaff have a great selection of outerwear, t-shirts and comfortable jumpers and hoodies, and we’re big fans of the Camber Shirt, which is wonderfully lightweight and crafted in water repellent micro poly fabric, making it perfect for wearing in-between seasons. On the chest you’ll find Belstaff’s trademark slanted pocket, along with two discreet pockets to the sides. Available in a sleek black or in this warm Belstaff red, this stylish shirt creates a contemporary silhouette, and the pointed collar makes this a great choice for wearing on smarter occasions as well as everyday.

Marshall Artist GD Parachute Overshirt


We’re huge fans of Marshall Artist here - they have become a hit since they were born in 2001 and are now one of the UK’s much-loved menswear brands. Their pieces focus on tailored fits for the modern man, and one, in particular, that does just that is the GD Parachute Overshirt. This stylish shirt is crafted using a technical fabric and uses the unique garment-dyeing process to create an authentic and unique finish, while there are two large chest pockets to provide plenty of storage. Finished with the iconic Marshall Artist patch to the sleeve, this is one overshirt that you need in your wardrobe.

BOSS Casual Lovel Zip Nylon Overshirt


Name any garment, chances are BOSS have it. Their wide variety of premium pieces ranges from athleisure to everyday style, and they’ve also jumped on the bandwagon when it comes to the overshirt trend. A recent arrival to our collection is this casual Lovel Overshirt by BOSS - and we’re already huge fans. The single colour design keeps things simple, but the addition of flap and zip-close pockets helps to create a contemporary look that captures the ever-popular utility trend with ease. Finished with an understated BOSS badge to the sleeve, if you’re as big a fan of the brand as we are, this jacket belongs in your wardrobe, no questions asked.

Belstaff Pitch Cotton Overshirt


Belstaff are truly bringing it with their variety of overshirts, and this Pitch Overshirt is the ideal piece for your mid-season wardrobe. This simple and straightforward shirt is a great option for those who are new to the overshirt trend, designed to channel the look of the classic button down shirt. The soft pink colouring makes the piece ideal for summer, but who’s to say it can be worn during the cooler months too?

Ralph Lauren Nylon Coach Jacket


Finally, we’ve got a piece that is sure to bring a touch of American style to your wardrobe, and it’s this Nylon Coach Jacket by Ralph Lauren. While the brand is known largely for their iconic polo shirts and other timeless wardrobe staples, they’ve graced us with this stylish, lightweight, nylon finish jacket that’s perfect for taking you through the seasons with ease. The single colour design is given a touch of contrast thanks to the signature polo player logo to the chest, while the adjustable hem and elasticated cuffs are there to provide optimum comfort, whatever the weather.

There’s no denying that with the utility trend being so popular this year, the overshirt is here to stay for AW20, and we certainly think that’s a good thing. Whether you opt for the biker-inspired pieces from Barbour, or the authentic contemporary designs from Marshall Artist, there’s an overshirt for everyone. Why not browse our full range today?
