The
Button-Down
Jacket

Brooks Brothers has developed a knack lately for combining their prep pedigree with more modern cuts, fabrics and styles which connect to a younger, savvier audience. Case in point: this button-down cotton jacket. Ideal for this time of year, it puts a new twist on the timeless Harrington jacket. There's the same masculine simplicity of the original—with a cropped fit, plaid lining and button-flap pockets—but this one has a sturdy button-down collar and barrel cuffs, not unlike your favorite oxford shirt. A versatile piece of outerwear available in three neutral colors, it can be thrown over a sweatshirt or plain white T-shirt, or paired with chinos, a proper shirt and a knit tie. And like any cotton piece, this will look even better after a few months of hearty wear.
