5 Lightweight Jackets for Early Spring

April 6th, 2010


April means transition weather - the awkward space between the cool winter days and the weather we associate with spring.  You don’t want to be hauling your winter parkas around, but it’s not quite warm enough to be headed out without a jacket in tow.  What to do?  Choose a lightweight jacket to throw over your tees and button-down shirts.  Neutrals, khakis, and browns are big this season - and will pair well with the rest of your wardrobe.  But, if you’re up for it, we encourage you to try something a bit different - a chambray parka or a deep green Baracuta jacket will certainly anchor your spring wardrobe.

    H&M has slijm harrington jackets for like 30 bucks, they’re not bad if you’re really on a budget. I’m not crazy about the fit on the Baracuta G9, even if that’s the original.

    Negative on the Members Only jacket, I like the rest.

    I tried the J. Crew epaulet jacket and didn’t like it. Much better, I think, is the utility jacket, which is much like this in fit and style, but doesn’t have the epaulets or corduroy collar. It’s been offered for the past few years. I got mine last spring and have worn it to death. It’s still in stock this year, I believe.
