nice jackets

Maybe it's just me, but when it's 90 degrees out I seem to want to wear jackets and sweaters, and when it's 40 below I want a nice pair of seersucker shorts. These jackets have been calling my name. The only thing holding me back is I know if I bought them now, I'd end up being way too tempted to try and wear them. The only thing worse than sunglasses at night/indoors is wearing clothing that will give you heatstroke because it makes you look cool.

I've only seen a handful of fishtail parkas that I think could work. I found this one through Mono magazine. Mono is a Japanese magazine, so all I know about this jacket is it costs 14,490 yen and it's called the M-51 field parka. That and if she notices the fishtail it means she was checking out your rear end. Check it out here.

I have a moonstone jacket. I really like it because it's extremely light and really packable. It's perfect in a lot of situations. You can wear it as a middle layer underneath a shell or on it's own. I always end up wearing mine way too deep into the winter. It's a great 'sprint to the car from your front door or you'll die of hypothermia' jacket. Get it at your favorite camping/outdoor store. I like REI.

Saved the best for last. The boys over at h(y)r pointed this Albam jacket out. The madras print is sweet-just make sure it's a slimmer fit-a baggy fit with a print like this could lead people to confuse you for a couch. I love the hood too. I never really pull my hoods up, but I think a good hood always adds to your silhouette. I also have a sneaking suspicion that your girl would add this to her steal from your closet list. Buy it here.

Yes, I would most definitely steal that last one!

Cath had a jacket very similar to the first one pictured. It was a hand-me-down from our too-cool-for-us cousin who lives in Brooklyn Heights... I think it's roughly 10 years old... I'll check to see if we still have it.

I agree with Lauren that I'd steal the last jacket too! I dig the plaid.

I have a similar jacket to that REI one that I picked up from Uniqlo last fall, It has been really useful.
