The weather is warming, meaning it’s about time to trade in those down coats for spring jackets. Fine-looking spring jackets in which you’d look, well, pretty darn fine. If you happened to have a woman stocking your closet for you, she’d probably pick out the following. And then, when you’re out there being showered in rainfall, you’ll probably also be showered in compliments. So click through this diverse array and pick one up today...
1. Linen Textured Blazer ($190, Linksoul): Spring calls for linen blazers, like this one. It’s a casual but smart jacket you can wear with jeans or pants, to the office or to lunch on the weekends.
2. Greenland No.1 Special Edition ($300, Fjällräven): This classic Fjällräven design dates back to 1968. Today, it’s just as fresh as it was five decades ago, boasting the original chest pockets and two additional lower slit pockets, as well as handsome leather details.
3. Aria-Lite Windbreaker ($150, Dainese): For the active man, this windbreaker’s ciré finish and high-density weaving makes it an ideal option to throw on in unpredictable conditions. You could even stash it as a backup, since it’s lightweight enough to pack into its own pocket.
4. Hooded Rain Jacket ($650, Exley): A hooded jacket with tape-sealed seams makes for the perfect raincoat for spring. But this one has some extra street cred because it’s made in the rugged, coastal New England region, where they understand weird weather.
5. Riding Jacket ($164, Nau): Made from recycled polyester, this riding blazer will keep you dry in the rain—and also safe, thanks to reflective tape smartly stitched on throughout. So you can get to wherever it is you’re going in one piece, and look sharp as hell doing it.
6. Captain’s Rain Coat ($220, Helly Hansen): This Scandinavian-slim, tailored coat features a longer cut that certainly makes a statement. But it’s not just an attractive coat. It’s equipped with Helly Tech Protection to keep you dry in wicked weather.
7. Insulated Pullover ($193, RYU): The kangaroo pocket in this quarter-zip pull-over gives it the feel of a hoodie—a water-resistant, quick-drying, insulated hoodie. You can also stuff it right into its own inside pocket for convenience.
8. Downhill Demon Jacket ($78, Tipsy Elves): Throw it back to the ’80s in this multi-colored spring zip-up. Rock it with a Walkman in hand and you won’t even need a pick-up line—the neon is bold enough.
