The Spring Jacket

A spring jacket fell off my list a few years ago (along with a spring coat) because the window of opportunity to wear it was too short to justify the cost. However, this one by Vince is so cute and well-priced, I’d wear it now with a turtleneck sweater and then a tank when the temps warm up—a win-win item.

  • I was shocked when I saw this was Vince this morning. It’s such a great jacket and would be year round in Los Angeles.

  • Where oh where can I find a traditional navy spring coat? Trenches and jackets are great, but there is something simple and elegant about a navy spring coat.

  • Like you, I love Spring outerwear and find any occasion to wear it! It is very useful for trips where the evenings can be cool and cities with moderate temperatures. A light coat or jacket makes anything look pulled together!

    An aside – recently viewed the Oscar de la Renta Retrospetive (San Francisco) last week – what a pleasure it was – if you appreciate beautiful textiles, dressmaker details, and fine workmanship, it’s a must see!

  • I bought this for all the same reasons but returned it when I realized how itchy it was with a tank or tee (probably due to the linen)! Instead, I bought Vince’s nubuck jacket styled like a safari shirt. Same weight and color as this one, but softer and more luxurious.
