Spring/fall weekend-casual jacket

4136 Views 13 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  printemps2001us
I'm looking for a casual non-tailored jacket for the spring and fall. This would be something I'd wear with the temperature in the 50s or 60s, and if the mercury climbed high enough, I'd want to feel comfortable about tossing the jacket into a corner or even (depending on the material) tying it around my waist. Also, a little water repellance would be a good thing, but waterproof probably would not be.

I've considered Harringtons, among other styles, but I'm tall, so I'm self-conscious in jackets that are really short like that.

From what I've read, ventile sounds like a great fabric for this purpose, but it's not widely available in anything other than highly functional garments, and even then, it's pretty uncommon. Not sure why.

I must say I like their Zambezi Twill jacket

Orvis ofers a a few heavy cotton models that may work for you.
Their Zambezi Twill

and their Rhinohide

are examples, although the availability seems spotty lately.

Very versatile with an inner mesh lining to keep you cool and lots of interior pockets.
