As I checked off the minutiae of the morning routine and stepped outside, I realized one specific portion of this checklist had run its seasonal course. Was there a viable threat of rain today? Certainly. Had the unmistakable weight of looming East Coast humidity suddenly reared it’s ugly head? Absolutely. And thus, the annual rite of ditching any kind of heavy fabrics, wax cottons, or fully lined jackets is here. As are months of sweating on subway station platforms and getting caught off guard by the occasional afternoon deluge. The answer is simple‚Äďa unlined (or partially lined) light cotton jacket. This overcoat from Original Penguin is of the partially lined variety and has the length and button front of a traditional mac. Helping you stay dry on the platform, and the park.

Original Penguin, on sale at noon ET, on Gilt MAN.
