Round out your outerwear offering — or kick off your fall prep, at the very least — with the rugged, historically inspired and classically built Wallace & Barnes line from J. Crew. The brand’s outerwear and durable staples are a nice way to layer up atop the brand’s main offerings, particularly as we get closer to colder weather. And the jacket that you just might be looking for happens to be the Wallace & Barnes MA-1 Bomber Jacket, the rare type of bomber jacket that calls to mind vintage style as opposed to streetwear and high fashion nowadays.
Available in two crisp, neutral colors (we particularly like the navy option), you’re not going to go wrong with either pick — especially if you layer it atop a garment-dyed tee and your favorite chinos as it gets breezier in the weeks ahead. Made with blend of nylon and cotton and featuring classic touches like a sleeve zip pocket and ribbed cuffs, it’s the smart way to bid farewell to summer and say hello to fall. – $178
