Your workhorse Spring/Summer cotton/linen sport jacket - Page 4

Bump. Any new additions? Pics? Links? Based on posted links, seems like LLBean/JCrew are the main players in spring jackets.

I own and frequently wear a navy cotton unlined sport coat from cp company, as well as a half lined tan sport coat that I picked up for $40 at Daffy's. I can get through a week in the office during the summer with these if needed because of their basic coloring. The unlined aspect of them makes a world of difference. I own the j crew linen suit in navy, and while I like the look, it wears very warm as it is a fully lined jacket.

I had Hemrajani make up a 1/3rd lined sport coat from a Loro Piana linen and silk fabric last year which is pretty incredible. Far too busy to wear to the office, it's my default vacation blazer and acks well.

Just picked up a navy cotton SC from Banana Republic that I really like. It's a tad on the heavy side for a summer SC, but I think it's very versatile nonetheless. I know BR isn't loved around here, but it works well casually and you can dress it up with a tie and nice trousers pretty easily.

Sorry to bump this, but any other ideas besides cotton jackets?

Hemp. Much rougher texture than cotton, making it more casual.

I have a cotton kaki jacket by Polo, the Princeton line. I really like the fit.

+1 I like hemp better than linen also... a bit unfortunate as it is difficult to procure good hemp fabric due to limited distribution and production.

Hemp is boss. Where did you acquire? Is it fused, or lined?

NODB, I think you have the best outfits on SF. Can you post a few with the above (or any) summer/spring looks?

Thanks.

I like both jackets (the blue one is part of a suit), and they go with just about anything in my wardrobe, which is basically "built" around the same colours and fabrics; just slight variations.

Spring and summer aren't my favourite seasons, clothing-wise (more difficult than autumn/winter for me); but here's some:

Just came across this thread and wanted to say: great jackets.

this is nice combination - great style/color.
