Now that it's starting to get a bit warmer here in SF, I'm looking to ditch my heavier Sterlingwear peacoat for the time being. While it wasn't too versatile, that coat did serve me well over those colder nights this winter, and I'll be a bit sad to see it go. However, I'd like to find a lighter -- perhaps just a little lighter than a hoodie -- and dressier jacket that wears well with button-downs & oxfords, both with and without a tie (I have mainly knit ties in mind here.)
I realize that description's a little broad, but I'm not even sure where or for what I should look, and I'm not trying to pin down something specific, so I'll welcome just about any recommendation! As a datapoint, I think this Brooks Brothers jacket in navy (although I doubt it could really be called a bomber...?), is a decent example of what I'm looking for, for what that's worth:
I'm not too enthralled by the price, however, taking into account that I haven't got any idea of the construction, but I'm assuming it'd be decent, considering it's being put out by BB. Also, I'm not sure it'd look right worn with a tie, either, but that might be workable with a knit.
Anyway, please do suggest away, Mefites!
