The Cotton Bomber Spectrum

Styling Tip

These look great with sneakers and chinos, but turn things up a notch by pairing them with some military-inspired chukkas.

When it's not quite time to break out the pea coats and flannel shirts, cotton jackets make for ideal outerwear. Sure, it might be a little too hot to throw one over an oxford right now, but breezy nights mean you can wear these over a simple T-shirt while keeping your cool. Besides, once September hits you'll be wanting a cotton bomber and the best ones are hitting stores now. A great alternative to the denim jacket, these are just as rugged, and add a dose of surplus style to any outfit.
