Spring has begun and with it come the warmer weather, rain and colourful flowers. In Milan, temperatures have reached 23ºC (73ºF), but based in our readership we know that is a little warmer than for most of you guys. Due to that, we decided to pick the best jackets for spring, so that you guys can be protected from mild rain and cold (in style).
Trench Coat Heritage by Burberry
This British elegant piece is one of the most classic in men’s clothing. Burberry began making the first trench coats for the British Army during WWI, and since then they have become synonym of manliness and refinement. For spring, opt for a brighter colour and shorter coat. This trench is perfect for any occasion, you can wear it with a suit or a pair of jeans. It will surely keep you warm, dry and well-dressed. Additionally, for an [absurd] EUR125 you can have your initials on the inside. Though the high price (EUR1.650,00) this piece will last you an entire lifetime and likely never go out of style. You can pick one up here.
Field Jacket by SuitSupply
This is an alternative for those of you whose lifestyle is more casual. SuitSupply is a fairly young brand but (based on personal experience) it seems that they’ve been making high-quality clothing for decades. The Vitale Barberis Canonico cloth is an absolute joy. Lots of pockets mean that you can put all your belongings in them. Hopefully preventing you from taking out your wallet every time you sit down. This piece also costs a fraction of the price and the tailor in every SuitsSupply store will make sure it fits you perfectly. Finally, you can pick one up here.
These are the two most Milanese picks we could find. Fay is a highly recognised brand here and Stewart makes great leather jackets. The Nuvoletta is made from Madras suede and is expected to last decades if taken care of. Year after year we notice that young people wear these, a lot of them being vintage (mostly coming from their grandparents). Fay on the other hand is more serious. Its synthetic cloth will most definitely keep dry your expensive suit on the short way from your office door to your car. It’ll do a lot more than that if you need, but you probably won’t. You can pick up the Fay here and the Stewart here.
