The Canvas Jacket Spectrum

In between the harsh cold of winter and the breezy days of early fall, the season's weather conditions can be tricky. Some days it could drop to 50, while others it could be sunny and kind of warm. That's why it doesn't make much sense to start breaking out the down jackets or pea coats just yet. Instead, lighter canvas jackets will do the trick in almost any situation. Whether made from hardy cotton duck or waxed for extra protection against the elements, a workwear-inspired canvas jacket is a welcome way to add a dose of masculine style to your everyday kit. Consider adding one of these versatile options to your closet, and break it in all season long.
