Last fall, the Barbour coat was the thing to have. You couldn’t cast a sideways glance without seeing 20 of them, especially if you were in Georgetown. This spring, short field jackets will be on the must have lists for the chilly nights of April.
I love the way this jacket mixes an outdoorsy sensibility with a sleek, citified silhouette. I have a quilted Barbour jacket that I wear when I shoot trap, and I think that I may like this option better. Plus, it would be a great jacket to wear in Montana, because being too dressed up in Big Sky Country is frowned upon.
If you like the look, but want to spend a little less, Gap has a khaki jacket for just shy of $100. I also have a few friends who own the Eddie Bauer equivalent, which cost a bit more, and they love it. Or for those of you who just want an olive jacket that isn’t a field jacket, this Urban Outfitters coat has a military feel and this Gianni Binni coat is a bit like a sleek anorak.
