Deal of the Day

Safari Jacket

Carson Street Clothiers is in the midst of their end-of-season sale, and there are plenty of awesome deals to be had, like half off of this Valstar jacket. The century-old Italian brand is known for its quality outerwear, especially the Valstarino blouson, a combination military jacket and bomber. This chambray safari jacket takes that surplus-inspired style and translates it into a summer-friendly lightweight layer. Details like a slight spread collar and epaulets with hidden buttons smarten up the overall look, meaning you can throw it on over a shirt tie or just a simple T-shirt. We dig the tapered sleeves and four-pocket front too. It's also unlined and unstructured, which means it will look even better rumpled with some well-worn wrinkles.

Styling Tip

Keep the "smart surplus" vibe going with tailored twill pants and add some color with a bold linen shirt. For shoes, white sneakers or penny loafers will do the trick.
