I wear a sportcoat quite a bit. Whether its at the office, out in social settings, or to church, it has become habit to bring one with me. They are a utility coat for me – holding my phone, keys, girlfriend stuff, and almost anything else I don’t want to carry in my pants pockets. It’s fair to say that sportcoats have become more acceptable as everyday attire. They dress up the usual button down and jeans look and are a great alternative to a Patagonia fleece in any business casual environment.
Sid Mashburn just released his garment dyed sport jackets, which are a cotton/linen blend. Perfect for summer. After seeing them in person, I could use one in each color… They have a slimmer cut and are just a touch shorter than normal jackets, giving them an updated look that is very versitile. The colors are rich and the jackets have a lightweight feel to them. These will up your A-game this summer.
