Cool mornings, followed by semi-warm to hot afternoons to chilly evenings call for a PH.D in layering. Donning a leather jacket will leave your sweating and commuting with just your single layer can leave you on the chilly side of the road.
This season, the shacket (shirt + jacket) or chore jacket might be your answer to proper layering. They’re typically lightweight — constructed from cotton, linen, canvas or corduroy, which means you can wear them all day without overheating. When looking for a solid shacket/chore jacket the key length. It should fall just below the waist and the hem should be straight. From there, it’s your pick of what color and materials tickles your fancy.
