Shopping Guide: The Best Men’s Lightweight Jackets, Part II

November 1st, 2005

Part II of Style Intelligence Report’s guide to Men’s Lightweight Jackets.

We present to you Five stylish, semiformal jacket options. Whether you’re looking for something basic, unique, sophisticated, comfortable, or edgy, we have a jacket for you!

Boxcar Coat

Kenneth Cole "Boxcar" Coat | $129.99 (sale) at Macy’s

For a sophisticated, minimalist look, this coat is perfect. Plus, it’ll go with everything in your wardrobe.

Knit Blazer

Knit Blazer | $135 at Armani Exchange

Knit for comfort, but tailored for style. The collar detailing on this knit jacket made it a real standout.

Corduroy Blazer

Corduroy Blazer | $145 at Armani Exchange

No stylish man’s closet is complete without a fitted corduroy blazer. We like this one for its cropped fit. The jacket looks great on tall men, but the cropped length also makes shorter men look taller.

Romain Kapadia Trenchcoat

Romain Kapadia Canvas Trench | $438 at Guyshop

Expensive, yes. But we adore this jacket’s off-centered button detailing and the diagonal belt fastening. Truly standout detailing.

Kenneth Cole Leather Jacket

"Washed Up" Leather Jacket | $398 at Kenneth Cole

Slim fit, streamlined detailing, and washed leather. What’s not to love about this jacket?

    Yeah, can’t seem to find that knit blazer anywhere. Do you have a more specific name for it?

    Sorry, Joe. This knit blazer was part of Armani Exchange’s Fall 2005 collection.

    As for current season jackets, I like their cotton utility jacket.

    Alas, the knit blazer was for sale in 2005. Armani Exchange no longer carries this style.
