The Transitional Piece

You see it every year. The winter chill finally peaks above 40 degrees and suddenly guys are out and about in T-shirts and flip-flops. Not only do these men look silly, but they're uncomfortable as well. Because while no one wants to throw on that heavy coat you've been lugging around all season, the temperature is still not permitting of the spring goods hitting shelves at the moment. Fortuitously, there's a slew of handsome middleweight wool outerwear options for this transitional time that will protect you from chilly breezes but let you breathe when the sun's shining. Layer as needed.
