I firmly believe that a military-inspired field jacket should be a part of every guy’s wardrobe. It’s a surprisingly versatile piece, as well suited to knocking around the neighborhood in well-worn jeans as it is to hitting the office along with, say, crisp trousers and a cashmere cardigan. The only problem? Many of the versions you come across aren’t just military-inspired, they’re military issue, and that means oversized fits designed to accommodate the widest possible variety of enlisted men. Thankfully, the folks at Italia Independent—the brand conceived and helmed by entrepreneur playboy and Gianni Agnelli descendant, Lapo Elkann—saw fit to produce this slimmed-down riff on the form. Complete with a quilted lining to stand up to brisk weather and a removable hood for head protection when you want it and cleaner lines when you don’t, it’s a great jacket to make the transition from winter into spring.
