It’s funny (to me at least) that Brooks England only started doing this stuff after they were bought by the Italians.
timothy everest designed a jacket for brooks england a few years ago. it's made for cycling, but i sometimes use it as a travel jacket. it's made from ventile, so it's relatively breathable. but then with it rains, the material swells up so that water doesn't leak through. Tons of pockets, a specialized keychain pocket to hold keys, and backpack style straps so you can sling over your body when running through the airport. zippered pockets keep things such as passports safe.

it's from a few years ago, but maybe you can find one on the second-hand market.

the design is relatively cm-ish, however, so it goes better with things such as C&J field boots, jeans, and Shetland sweaters. not as directional if you're into SWD type stuff.

Assault against bearded dudes with rolled up beanies should not only be legalized, but should possibly be reclassified as a social good.
You best watch your back, Fok. Get another dozen or so of us bearded, beanie-wearing dudes riled up and all the MMA in the world won’t save you.

Yeah, I really don't want to get tied to a chair, and be forced to drink a microbrew IPA while being sonically assaulted by Bon Iver.

Hard to tell without some kind of lab test (or burn test), but that looks like a poly-cotton blend.
