5 Days, 5 Ways to Wear a Field Jacket
The perfect in-between seasons coat
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.
Below, five ways to wear a field jacket:

SG Says: Here at SG HQ, we are very into yellow for fall. Whether it’s a lime yellow like the one above, or veering more towards mustard, the sunny hue is the perfect way to add a pop of color to an otherwise staid wardrobe palette.
