For me, autumn is the best season. It’s when you finally make that long transition from t-shirt weather to layering up and surely no location defines autumn as much as The Arboretum in Nottingham. 

My girlfriend, India, moved to Nottingham for university last year giving me an opportunity to explore a completely new city. The Arboretum is located conveniently over the road from her flat and seemed a great location for my first blog post.

These work jackets from Le Laboureur act as the perfect staple to your autumn wardrobe. Layer them over a shirt and/or jumper on bitter cold days or a t-shirt on those slightly warmer days like myself. 

This particular style comes in three colours, black, ecru and marine. I went for ecru as I thought it was the most unusual and autumnal colour although I would love to own all three.

Le Laboureur have been a family run business since the 50s. Originating from Southern Burgandy, France, Primo Zelanti created the brand Le Laboureur (‘The Ploughman’) in 1956.

They are still made the same traditional way today using 100% French cotton moleskin fabrics that will wear in naturally over time and give each jacket a unique look.

They fit true to size but are roomy enough to consider sizing down for a slimmer looking fit.

They’re not the easiest to source in the UK but you can find them online at The Shopkeeper Store for a reasonable £95 alongside a lighter cotton drill alternative and wool versions perfect for winter.
