The Best Light Jackets

Spring/Fall Jackets:

Having created this blog around the idea that stylish men’s active wear is hard to find, I have to say that I’m overwhelmed by the choice of jackets on offer. I’ve been procrastinating over jackets for far too long, finding it impossible to make final selections from such a good range. So let this be a springboard to exploring all the different jackets from these brands and no just the garments featured.

In the first of a series of posts about jackets, as we are in the transitional seasons of spring in the northern hemisphere and fall in the south, I’ve selected pieces that are good for general active-wear in milder conditions; lighter weight and ideal for layering. They are also breathable to avoid “boil in the bag” sweaty scenarios. As ever, I’ve selected garments that have a sleek, stylish aesthetic with technical functionality and stretch for sporting pursuits and/or a generally active lifestyle.
