In Review: Lightweight Jackets


We’ve rounded up the best lightweight jackets on the market to conquer the seasonal switch; everything from printed denim, to staple chore jackets, to utilitarian military jackets. Big jacket weather is finally on it’s way out, and we have you covered.

Girls Of Dust W-B Kogi Jacquard Coach Jacket

Girls Of Dust’s signature coach jacket is reinvented this season using a custom-made French jacquard fabric that’s patterned with thin, multicoloured stripes. It retains its usual relaxed fit, patched pockets and button closure. 


YMC Boulevard Jacket

The YMC Boulevard Jacket takes inspiration from military pieces, with a classic cut and button down closure. The jacket has side slit pockets at the hip and is slightly cropped in length.


Beams Boy Solotex Military Jacket

Taking cues from a traditional military jacket, this piece comes equipped with multi patch pockets, drawstring waist and buttoned cuffs. Constructed using Solotex for outstanding dyeability and a soft, light and slightly stretchy finish.


Stand Alone Reversible Military Padded Vest

This Reversible Military Padded Vest by Stand Alone is cut from a nylon outer, lined for extra warmth. Layering on top or under, this vest is a dynamic piece, featuring two front pockets, a v-neckline, and a button down front.


Carhartt WIP Michigan Coat

The Michigan coat is one of Carhartt WIP’s most iconic designs, as it’s a lightweight version of the classic chore jacket. It’s made from 8.5oz cotton twill — garment dyed off-white, for this one — and features four utility pockets, one branded with the label’s signature logo patch. 


Ganni Print Denim Trucker Jacket

This Ganni denim jacket makes a statement in more ways than one. It’s cut to an oversized fit, creating more of a chore jacket silhouette than a traditional cropped trucker style, and it’s dotted all-over with a colourful painted flower print.
