Cooler weather presents a challenge for many of us. Gone are the days when we can comfortably leave the house in shirtsleeves, but it’s not quite cold enough to break out our winter gear yet. Sure, there are sport coats and suit jackets but, especially given today’s anything-goes office dress codes, what’s a more relaxed alternative?
Menswear’s answer to this question has been the shirt-jacket—more substantial than a shirt but lighter than a proper jacket. Wear them buttoned or unbuttoned to tie together a smart casual outfit, or layer them on as outerwear for the shoulder seasons. We’ve rounded up eight of the best over-shirts, shirt-jackets and shackets—whatever you want to call them, just know that they’re exactly what your wardrobe needs this fall.
