Smart Corduroy Jacket from Brooklyn Industries
Ever notice yourself developing a personal uniform? As much as we strive for variety and originality, most of us have some default favorite outfits, a personal style formula. One we like for guys: nice skinny jeans (avoid skin tight, please- we don't need to see that), an unusual or witty graphic T (no Hanes, please), perhaps a button-up or sweater and a blazer. Scarves make great winter accessories without looking like you tried too hard. We're currently particularly fond of the Professor Corduroy Jacket from Brooklyn Industries.
The jacket it cut slim- much different from the corduroy box you may remember professors wearing. This non-frumpy update runs small, so if you're ordering online, don't underestimate your size. Dustin, shown above, found the large a snug fit.
We like the fit, but the details are what really sell us on this jacket. It has elbow patches! They're flexible, and go well with the rich brown. The corduroy is soft, a "wide-whale" cord. There are roomy pockets at the hip and- this is the best part- the lining is black with white polka dots.
At $138, we think this is a great way to make your wardrobe distinguished. Pair it with glasses, witty conversation and belgian beer for a great evening.
