There are times when you want a jacket that excels in utility as well as aesthetics. It should be durable, comfortable, and look good with just about everything. This is one such jacket, it has a rugged yet refined appeal with a technical nylon fabric lining and solid wool exterior, and of course you can't forget that great contrast collar. Depending on how you wear it, this jacket could go from grey flannels, a spread collar and a foulard to jeans, bean boots and a chamois shirt; and it would look good the entire time. This would also make a great travel jacket because you can throw it on over whatever you're wearing, but you can also take it off and store it without worrying about how it's going to look after the flight. For these reasons, it remains firmly on my wish list.
