DH needs a jacket!

Obviously he is um, perfectly capable of choosing his own, but in the interests of averting a disaster of Jeremy Clarkson sized proportions, I am seeking some guidance. I can then gently steer him in the right direction. I am fairly fashion savvy when choosing my own stuff, but despite sizing up every male I know, I can't seem to think of what type of jacket would be right. DH also freely admits to being clueless. So, this is him:
46, 6'3, large build (not really fat, but stocky/broad shouldered and a bit of a tum), stubbly. works in creative industry, doesn't do really smart clothes but doesn't want to look scruffy. Mostly dresses in jeans, t shirts/casual shirts, shoes are either converse/puma or brown leather jodhpur style boots for smart.
I have seen some nice Superdry jackets but will teenagers openly mock him in the streets for trying too hard? Also maybe that sort of thing is for skinnier types. Help!

How about this - too smart? Or something like ?

My DH buys his jackets mainly from pretty green

Ooh thanks! Zara one lovely but maybe too trendy! Will get him to try river island one though. And FC, hadn't thought of there. Never heard of pretty green, but will check them out..

Ok, just looked at pretty green. VERY nice. Quite pricey though, but as DH buys a jacket about once every 3 years maybe we could splash out. Thanks again.

DH tends to buy his in the sale and there is a website that sells their stuff cheaper. Hold on I'll try and find it
