Thanks for entering everyone, the lucky winner has been picked, congratulations to Mark from Eastleigh, who’ll be getting hisMastrum Sniper jacket very soon. Keep your eyes peeled for more competitions coming soon.

Our new mate Mark, looking forward to some stylish Snipering.

To help celebrate two great things that are happening in mid-November, i.e. the arrival of Proper Mag issue ten and the launching of MA.STRUM’s online shop. Our good friends over at Mastrum have given us this amazing sniper jacket (with wool liner R.R.P. £675) to give away to one of you very lucky readers. Anyone who knows their stuff will be familiar with this relatively new label who are faithfully carrying the ‘innovative outerwear’ torch originally lit by creative legend/genius Massimo Osti. Creating some amazing clothes we’re sure the maestro would approve of.

 To be in with a chance of winning this amazing jacket, you need to do two things:

Firstly, you need to sign up for the MA.STRUM newsletter here: 

Secondly, you need to post a comment below stating your jacket size and also the name of the best piece of outerwear you’ve ever owned.

The lucky winner will be announced in two weeks.  Keep up to date on the label here:

    Current favourite the Victorinox spring parka I got form our friend in Copenhagen, though it’s getting a bit cold for that now.

  4. Medium

    Best jacket was and still is my Dad’s trusty sheepskin. I think he bought it before I was born and I wore it as soon as I was big enough to fit in it. An epic coat, that is durable, stylish and thick enough to guard against the mightiest of chills.

    Hard to pick a favourite as there have been so many over the years, but the favourite currently in my collection is a Boneville double layer in Red.
