Guide to Spring Jackets
The Ultimate Guide to Spring Jackets
The Tech Parka
Technical jackets are the perfect trans-seasonal allies. Not only you can wear them on a rainy or bright day but also they work well over a T-shirt, a shirt or multiple layers.
This parka perfectly combines functionality with tailoring. The style is classic but a modern touch that won’t let you go unnoticed is added with its contrasting yellow lining.
It is made from an exclusive fabric with a Façorain® finish or, which is the same, an invisible membrane that makes it waterproof and breathable, maintaining the garment's original properties of comfort and versatility.
Thanks to its removable hood and impermeability this parka is the go-to outerwear for rainy days. It will also be your favourite when commuting in the cool mornings because, despite being lightweight, it includes a "vest system" that let you attach a gilet underneath as a second layer.
WEAR IT WITH
The Harrington Jacket
An undisputed timeless classic, the Harrington Jacket was worn by movie stars and music idols such as James Dean, Steve McQueen and Elvis Presley, all of them true icons of an effortlessly cool style.
The classic style consists of a waist-length jacket with ribbed cuffs and hem, double-button stand-up collar and tartan-pattern lining. Our version of this blouson jacket is crafted in a lightweight water and air resistant gabardine fabric, which makes it suitable for unpredictable weather and thus a perfect go-to-spring outerwear option.
The Harrington also has a golfing heritage, in fact, it was born to cover the need of golfers to wear a waterproof jacket that kept them dry while allowing a good swing. So, as with the bomber jacket, this icon piece stands out for comfortability and practicality.
Thanks to its relaxed nature, this jacket will pair well with almost anything in your wardrobe. For a sporty look, try it with a T-shirt and jeans or a buttoned-up polo shirt. If you take it to your workplace, opt for a shirt and chinos combo instead. Nonetheless, take in mind it’s not the right jacket when a formal dress code is required.

WEAR IT WITH
The Jersey Blazer
The blazer, when worn as a separate, is definitely less formal than as part of a suit. It’s a timeless piece that will always be part of the modern gentleman’s wardrobe and especially in the warmer months.
When the spring or summer approaches the key to wearing this sport jackets is taking into account the lining. Unstructured or partially-lined styles are the most advisable as they are lighter and more breathable than fully-lined pieces.
For example, this soft jersey style is made from a cotton blend that makes it as comfortable as if you were wearing a knit cardigan. Its heathered appearance and brown colour lend it a rustic feel that is perfect alongside beige tones for a relaxed yet elegant appearance.
Wear it with a chambray shirt and beige chinos for dress-down Fridays in the office or over a T-shirt, with jeans and sneakers on summer night outs.
WEAR IT WITH
The Quilted Gilet
Isn’t there times when you think you need an extra layer for the cold but you fear that it will add so much bulk to your torso or it just won’t slip well under your coat?
Think of those moments when the room is chilly and you still want to look elegant at the office. Is it a blazer and a shirt enough to keep you warm? Or when you arrive to the car in the morning, it’s freezing outside and you don’t want to drive with your coat on until the temperature settles. What about when you are commuting and a thin sweater is just too tight and will crease your shirt? Definitely, a quilted gilet is your savior.
It’s practical, easy to wear and anything but heavy. If you don’t seek to dress down your smart outfits, do not choose printed or full-of-detail styles as they add a sporty touch. Better go for a solid colour option.
