What do you guys wear for spring jackets?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hey Guys,

 

I am looking for a spring jacket and was wondering if anyone could offer up some suggestions.  Basically looking for something in a slim fit to wear with dress shirt and pants (not over a blazer or suit). I am not interested in a trench style coat.  So does anyone have any suggestions of what they wear that might fit the bill?  Budget would be < $700 if possible.

 

Thanks

I'd suggest a field jacket, and this can range from the classic M-65 to the much more expensive designer versions.  Personally I'd go for the M-65 because of the heritage, but this will look more "rugged" than the designer versions which may give you a better fit and smarter look.

 

For the designer versions, Mr Porter is a good place to start.  For the M-65, ebay.

If you're still looking, you might also want to look at Baracuta- or Harrington-style jackets, like the Grenfell G9.

Why would you want to wear an (outerwear) jacket over a dress shirt? Is this for warmth or rain protection? Why can't you wear a light sport coat?

Dress pants and shirt + a field jacket or Harrington is not a good idea.

Think it depends what your spring is like? For me spring is 23-30C, no rain, so no spring jacket.

I've always been a fan of a shortish pea coat (or even a leather pea coat) with a dress shirt - something with a cut similar to a regular suit jacket

I'm all for the military style jacket for casual days and blazer when I'm wearing a dress shirt.

If it's a casual workplace where sport coats are seldom seen, it can be appropriate (esp. the Harrington style).

 

Burberry has some good examples in their "London Relaxed" collection: http://uk.burberry.com/store/menswear/jackets/#london-relaxed=true
