For autumn 2019, Jaeger celebrates 135 years of its iconic style - complete with a stellar line-up of timeless coats that the brand is loved for. Discover them now on the Grazia Shop. Caution: you’re going to want them all...

2019 has been a big year for milestone birthdays. We balked back in July when we realised Jennifer Lopez turned 50, leading to lengthy office discussions on how she is seemingly (read: definitely) ageing in reverse. We’ve been regularly looking out for scenarios in which to use ‘PIVOT!’ following the 25th anniversary of everybody’s favourite sitcom Friends. And, now, we gear up to celebrate the birthday of one of Britain’s best loved premium brands, Jaeger, who - would you believe - turns 135 years old this month.

A touchstone for classic heritage style, Jaeger has long been the brand of choice for women looking to make staple purchases with staying power. Jaeger have been a permanent fixture on my radar for this very reason - coupled with my mother’s affinity for their hefty yet incredibly crafted winter coats and just-so breton tops (something she has since passed on to my sister who must now have a striped top in every colour). The brand’s dedication to detail and fit - alongside sumptuous cashmere and exquisitely-cut dresses - are the reason they’re as relevant now as they were when they started out back in 1884.

Make no mistake, Jaeger isn’t the brand to visit if you’re looking to satiate a quick trend fix - their ageless pieces are a slow burn. However in a time where an interrogative torch is being shone in the direction of fast fashion, and many of us look for more sustainable ways to shop, this is an era in which a brand like Jaeger can truly thrive. 

So, what can we expect from their 135th autumn collection? There’s a strong heritage presence throughout (unsurprising given the brand’s lengthy style history), with a nod to highlights from their brimming archive. But this isn’t a vintage affair - it is a contemporary edit packed full of elegant uniform basics, recreated with small tweaks to make the classics feel updated. They’re simple pieces, perfectly executed - which is, when it comes down to it, all we ever really want from our wardrobe.

Whilst their autumn/winter 2019 collection covers all bases, it’s their array of coats that has really caught my attention above all else. Elegant wrap silhouettes, polished boyfriend fits and retro collar coats that hark back to their heyday; these are exactly the kinds of signature pieces that Jaeger are known for - and they are still as relevant now as they have always been. 

If you're looking to make a grown-up new season investment, look no further than the 7 best Jaeger coats below. I guarantee every one will look just as fresh in another 135 years time. 

1. The Ultimate Icon Coat

A limited edition wool maxi coat, crafted especially to honour the brand’s 135th anniversary. This iconic silhouette is Jaeger in a coat: signature craftsmanship, notable fibres, impeccable cuts and the kind of cinched silhouette that will never go out of style. Pick a classic camel tone to last the ages, or teach an old dog new tricks with a flash of rich palace blue.

2. The New Boyfriend Coat

There’s no ‘borrowing from the boys’ here, the Jaeger boyfriend silhouette is all woman. A masculine coat designed for the female frame (it’s all about that pinch at the waist), this everyday staple looks just as smart over wide legs and a white shirt for the office, as it does when slipped on with straight leg denim and a soft knit out of hours.

3. The Timeless Wrap Coat

Wrap silhouettes will never go out of style - after all, if it ain’t broke don’t fix it. Instead, Jaeger have simply made it better by adding pointed lapels and practical side pockets for convenience. We’ll be wearing the plum tone over a floral midi dress and white ankle boots the moment it arrives.

4. The Mod Mohair Coat

Harking back the brand’s swinging 60s prime, the real star of this teal mohair coat is the modish funnel neckline. It’s just the ticket with a white high neck polo top and one of this season’s trending vinyl mini skirts.

5. The Double Breasted Coat 

Everyone needs a smart coat, and this is most definitely it. A simple tailored choice that won’t date, this navy coat is as sharp as it gets thanks to its razor-cut lapels, double-breasted button fastening and nippy waist. Wear on days when you want to impress.

6. The Classic Trench Coat

Right now is the perfect time for a trench coat. Why? Because it covers those tricky autumn in-between days where it’s too hot for something heavy, but you still need a little something to combat the chill. Made from 100% cotton with buckled epaulets and cuffs, this beige number is a textbook example of the perfect trench.

7. The Elegant Puffer Coat

You might immediately write off puffer jackets as sportswear but, if you do, you’d be missing a trick. For their autumn collection, Jaeger offer a seriously refined take on the trend, extending the length and opting for a luxe quilted fabric, rimmed with tonal faux fur, that’s more sophisticated than street.
