Coldsmoke excels at making the sort of outerwear that admirably toes the line between functionality and great looks — a tricky balance to strike. The Cruiser Jacket certainly has a lot going for it, featuring a water and wind-repellent, wax-impregnated Japanese military cloth that’s unique, hard-wearing and cut in a stylish silhouette.
Featuring oversized waterproof chest zipper pockets and a drawstring hood, it’s exactly the kind of jacket to reach for in a driving rainstorm – it can handle any sort of conditions you encounter, be they during travel or your daily commute. It’s made in California, and finished off for good measure with a Bedford sanded corduroy fabric lining the hood – talk about balancing refinement and performance. You needn’t worry about this jacket’s looks, either – it’ll work atop a blue Oxford and a navy blazer just as well as it well a slim grey crewneck sweater on your weekend coffee run – and well beyond that, if we’re being honest. – $349
