The Working Man: The Light Weight Jacket

by Rachel Yeomans | January 15th, 2014   

Men’s commuting layers usually fluctuate between winter coat or no coat – or a compromise of the blazer. What’s missing is the tween-season light weight jacket. It’s ideal for when it’s a bit too warm for a winter coat but still too cold for just a sweater or sports jacket. Here are two that I came across from Mr. Porter that would be a good add-on for when you just need that extra add-on. And what’s great, is both are on sale and can be purchased at a fantastically affordable price! Yes, I’m sensitive to your finances. You’re welcome.

The first is a cotton canvas jacket from Folk. The jacket features contrast trims and is cut for a comfortable fit (so you can layer up!). There is even optional (and removable) wool lining so you can stretch the jacket pretty far into the season. It’s currently 70% off and available for $178.50.
