Menswear has a tendency to get ahead of itself—the spring/summer gear began trickling into shops months ago, the fall shows have already come and gone and the editorial spreads have moved to the beach. (Yes, Kempt is just as guilty as anyone.)

But take a look outside, we’re still smack-dab in the middle of showers-and-intermittent-sun weather. And dressing for that sort of uncertainty can be dicey unless you’ve got a trusty lightweight jacket stashed somewhere—whether it’s a packable anorak tucked into your briefcase or a linen-blend field jacket hanging on your desk chair.

Luckily, we’ve found the finest options available right now.»
