Casual Jacket Required

The last time we featured American Living, the blogosphere was buzzing with clever gents who nabbed a few of the label's too-good-to-be-true oxford cloth button downs. Well, we're back to extoll the virtues of its warm weather windbreaker. Come summer, it's easy for forsake style in favor of dressing comfortably. Which is why this Burkman-esque cotton madras jacket, complete with handsome button cuffs and strategically placed pockets, is the perfect option. Whether for those few cloudy days or simply a quick cover come nightfall, it works with just about anything—from chinos and a bow tie to a T-shirt and cut-offs.
