Help me find my dream jacket
November 6, 2010 3:42 PM   Subscribe

I love everything about this jacket except its material. Where can I find something similar that doesn't look like a sweatshirt?

I'm looking for a dark brown jacket that has buttons instead of a zipper and that isn't bulky. Something that doesn't look like it was made only for winter.

I think what I'm looking for is a blazer but with more buttons. I just can't find it. The above linked jacket is perfect in style, but the material makes it look (to me) like a hoodie or sweatjacket, and that's not what I'm going for. I think corduroy would be ideal.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. I know my dream jacket is out there somewhere, but I'm going crazy looking for it.

What about this one from Land's End Canvas? You might also try searching for "shirt jacket", which will get you things in wool, cotton, and/or corduroy that are probably what you're looking for.

The site isn't working for me right now, but you should also check out L.L. Bean Signature.

Here is the L. L. Bean Signature version, in corduroy with a wool lining.

Response by poster: Thanks, rossination. I've seen the first one. I should have mentioned that I need side pockets for the hands.

Good call on searching for 'shirt jacket'. I'm already seeing some promising sites.

I like this one, but quite a bit more money than the bean jacket.

Might as well have the best and get something from Filson! My husband is a fan of the whipcord (which is not a corduroy it's more of a twill) cruiser and wears one year round adding a wool vest in the winter.
