The shirt jacket is a perfect layer. It’s got a lil’ somethin’ more than a regular button-up shirt, but it’s not as hefty as an actual piece of outerwear. It’s a chameleon garment that’s appropriate for year-round wear and infinitely useful with any wardrobe. As far as cost-per-wear is concerned, it’s one of the best garments you could spend your hard-earned dollars on. Even better, there are plenty lurking around sale sections.
Go classic with a no-frills chore coat, enlist a military-inspired version to fill your shirt-jacket-shaped hole or side-step to a more avant-garde approach. Whatever your prerogative is, here’s a list to get you going.
