This time of year, there’s so many opportunities and ways to wear a field jacket. The original field jacket was designed for function, specifically for the American soldiers fighting in the Vietnam war. Characterized by two breast and hip pockets and a hidden hood that zips into the collar, when made in a waterproof waxed cotton, it’s a perfect option to reach for in weather not too cold yet totally unpredictable.
