As we head into fall, here’s an alternative to your standard-issue tweed jacket.

It comes from Monitaly, with the same cut as their Italophile blazers and one important difference: the fabric is duck canvas. That’s the same stuff you find on a Carhartt—basically the toughest canvas known to menswear. So despite the dandyish cut and the chambray-and-silk lining, this jacket can handle just about anything headed your way, including any September gusts.

Or any semi-formal construction sites.
