How to wear lightweight jackets for men?

How you wear your men’s lightweight jacket will depend on the season. In autumn and winter, layering beneath your jacket is key. Consider a men’s t-shirt and jumper combined with your jacket. This allows you to stay warm and dry outside but will also let you quickly remove a layer if there’s heating indoors or on any public transport. In spring and summer, a men’s lightweight jacket will help you keep dry if there’s any flash storms. They’ll also help you stay warm if the wind picks up.

What makes a good lightweight rain jacket?

The most important aspect of any lightweight rain jacket is clearly how dry it keeps you. First, it’s important to understand the difference between water resistant and waterproof. Water resistant lightweight rain jackets will keep you mostly dry in light rain. These are usually made from 100% polyester. If you don’t expect to be out in the elements for long, they are more than enough. If you’re expecting to be caught in the rain for long periods of time, you’re best choosing a fully waterproof material.

Looking for the perfect jacket to keep you dry on your way in and out of the office or for days exploring the city? Check out our windbreakers and anoraks. Available in stylish prints and on-trend colour block designs, they offer Scotch & Soda attitude with practicality too – ideal for travellers and fashion gurus alike!

What to wear with men’s lightweight jacket?

There are really no limitations when deciding what to wear with a men’s lightweight jacket. As always, it depends on what kind of style you’re hoping to achieve. For a smart and office-ready look, you’re best opting for a subtle lightweight jacket. Consider a tailored Harrington jacket with a zip up close and rib knitted cuffs and hem. Paired with a men’s shirt and some smart men’s chinos or trousers, this look exudes sophistication.

If you fancy a more casual style, colour block anoraks and printed windbreakers go well with men’s jeans and men’s trainers. Look for on-trend floral prints and contrast block patterns. If prints aren’t your thing, look for our one tone lightweight jackets available in both bright and quiet colours. Whatever your preference, we’re confident you’ll find a light jacket to fall in love with.

What else is there to consider when choosing a men’s light jacket?

As with all considerations for a men’s light jacket, you’ll need to take into account the weather. For example, the best lightweight jackets for winter are those with hoods and a light fleece lining. But in summer, you’ll want to avoid anything that’s going to stop airflow and limit breathability.

So, for winter, we recommend hoods, rib-knit cuffs, zip and snap button closures and drawstrings to help you block off those spots where the wind can make it in. Match it up with a stylish men’s scarf and hat for maximum warmth.

In the summer, you’ll want to look for styles which are predominantly white or light-coloured jackets to reflect away heat. We also recommend looking for those which are made from cotton, linen, or a blend of the two. These materials are breathable and will keep you cool – ideal if you need to keep out of the sun! Wear them with a pair of men’s chino shorts and a short sleeved t-shirt.
