WORDS BY DANIEL RAMSDALE-HARRIS
In the latest edition of The Affordable Alternative we bring you potential savings of over £1000 with our alternatives to high end designer goods. Every man needs a range of jackets in their wardrobe, which is fitting, as we compare both bombers and puffers below.
Now this maybe super-efficient planning ahead for the summer wardrobe but the comparison between these two bomber jackets is something that we could not take notice off.
Curated in Italy, the D&G Majolica Print Bomber Jacket comes in at a mesmerising £1256. The eye-catching silhouette is inspired from Sicilian culture and is certainly one for you to stand out in the crowd with.
However, If you love this but don’t fancy splashing out the grand, Diesel have come to your rescue. Crafted from a smooth floral–print nylon to a relaxed fit, go for this if your wanting to save those all-important penny’s.
These jackets are like marmite, you’ll either love them or loath them.
Represent or ASOS
The winter puffer jacket is the essential that almost any male, anywhere, will need. However, not everyone wants to settle for that plain single colourway. In that case, we thought we’d bring along the tartan.
Manchester based menswear brand Represent have rapidly grown since their launch back in 2012. The release of their ‘Hell Tartan Bubble Jacket’ was a huge success and even caught the eye of American hip hop A-lister Quavo, who was spotted in it on tour. It was something that gave the brand awareness in the US, and they haven’t looked back since. The jacket retails at £362 pounds but wait for it, is currently on sale at luxury retailer Farfetch for £217.
Still a bit too pricey? Well don’t worry, as we can always rely on ASOS to provide that affordable alternative. Their oversized puffer in a navy check might be a little brighter than Represents silhouette, but if you’re a 90’s streetwear fan this might just be the one for you. And it gets better, as it’s currently on sale for just £32.50.
We will be back in April with more savings, in the meantime let us know in the comments below which options you’d go for!
