The brand's mainline delivers a hit.

A subtly structured box jacket is perhaps not the most appropriate garment to be endorsing during high summer – despite what the grey clouds might say, the temperature in London at least would propose nothing more than a light cotton tee – but when it looks this good, we can ignore a few sweat patches.

Part of River Island’s current limited edition menswear line-up – the matching trousers feature elsewhere, likewise a lighter grey version – this black gingham suit jacket is equal parts smart and contemporary, while its silhouette flaunts a strong whiff of the retro.

The anti-Insta of the shopping world (no slogan or heart appropriate motif found here), it’s a piece that instead demands close attention and the respective appreciation. Pair it with bold trainers or subtle lace ups; something all white if you’re that way inclined.
