  • Cheap lightweight jacket

    I am looking around for a inexpensive, good looking lightweight jacket for spring, summer and fall. I like the look of really dark rinse denim jackets, m65 field costs and slim Brown leather jackets. My budget is like $20-100, but am trying to stay to about $50. I would like to find something with lots of pockets that looks good with dark jeans and chinos with button up shirts. What do you guys think?

    mostly out of stock now, but i suspect it will show up in a month or so maybe?

    its kind of a weird time for a denim jacket right now. i feel like you will find few models to choose from, but the ones you do find will be in super good sales.

      Try this:

      Gap Factory has something similar that is lighter weight if you have one nearby.

      This Uniqlo jacket looks nice as well:

      Removable lining, so it might be a good transitional jacket.

        It might not be your style but I'm a big fan of my Pointer Brand chore coat in cotton duck, like $90 and made in the US.

        Some sources suggest sizing down but I found they actually run TTS and pretty well fitted once you've run them through the wash. (Someone somewhere online suggests that they might have been redesigned to fit trimmer recently....?) There are more color and material options, too, including indigo denim, light blue engineer stripe, and off-white cotton drill. These are totally unlined so they are lightweight despite being made from rather burly material.

          +1 on this recommendation. I've got a Pointer shawl collar chore coat in hickory stripe and it's my go-to spring and fall jacket.
