ecause of all the rain that’s been happening here in LA and the East Coast, I’ve been trying to find stylish yet practical jackets for some of my clients who are doing press right now along the soggy coasts. I found this awesome snokel jacket that fit the bill perfectly.
I was so excited to find a lightweight snorkel jacket that fit the bill perfectly. A snorkel jacket is basically a parka. It’s a 3/4 length jacket hitting mid-thigh and has a drawstring hood that can tighten so your entire face is covered except a small breathing hole, hence the name snorkel. A lightweight jacket, like the one in the image, will also take you through Spring and is easy to layer under.
$788 – Todd Snyder Storm Parka in Beige
$298 – J. Crew Lightweight Snorkel Jacket
$150 – Zara Technical Parka
In the image, the jacket is layered over a striped long sleeve shirt, but you can also wear a grey, navy, or burgundy sweatshirt or crewneck sweater.
$168 – Todd Snyder Italian Silk-Cotton Striped Sweater
$95 – Vince Striped Long Sleeve T-Shirt
$60 – J. Crew Striped Long Sleeve T-Shirt in Heavyweight Jersey
$35 – TopMan Selected Homme Navy and White Stripe Long Sleeve T-Shirt
Not only does this outfit look great with some dark wash jeans, you can also wear a pair of chinos or wool trousers with it.
$228 – JBrand Tyler Taper Fit in Rasalas
$70 – Levi’s 511 Slim Fit Stretch Jeans (Blue Flame or Dark Hollow)
$40 – Uniqlo Stretch Selvedge Slim-Fit Jeans
As for shoes, I’d go with a pair of boots or sneakers.
came across this image that I thought would be a perfect Spring & Summer men’s suede jacket outfit because it’s a great, casual everyday outfit that you can wear when you’re going out with friends or if you work in a casual work environment. It has the added benefit of being able to be dressed slightly up or down as well as layered depending on the weather.
A suede jacket is perfect for Spring and Summer and will look great on every guy, regardless of age or body type. But if you’re not into suede, or like other styles, look no further than the Harrington jacket or a wool bomber jacket.
$1,455- A.P.C. Louis W Suede Bomber Jacket
$1,085 – Hackett Mayfair Suede Bomber Jacket
$160 – TopMan Faux Suede Formal Bomber Jacket
The plaid shirt underneath the grey sweater can be switched out for your classic white or blue oxfords or other fun colors or patterns like navy and/or green plaid or gingham.

$139 – Steve Alan Masters Shirt

On warmer days, you can ditch the crewneck sweater and just wear a collared shirt.
$298 – Brooks Brothers Golden Fleece 3-D Knit Fine-Gauge Merino Wool Crewneck Sweater
$158 – J.Crew Lightweight Italian Cashmere Crewneck Sweater (in heather dove)
$40 – TopMan Grey Ripple Textured Raglan Slim Fit Sweater
As for chinos, Spring and Summer is when you pull these bad boys out or you can swap them for a pair of dark wash jeans as well.
Make sure, that you know how either your chino pants should fit or how your jeans should fit, based on your body type.
$75 – J.Crew Broken-In Chino in 484 Fit

Lastly, the brown suede chukka boots in the image are great, but you can also swap them out for brown monkstraps or even white sneakers.
