When a brand calls its jacket “The Dean,” you’d expect it to stand out with authority, sharp style and durability. Well, my friends — the Dean Jacket from Baro does just that, at least on paper. As we draw ever closer to the spring season — and inevitable spring showers — you’re going to need a jacket like the Baro Dean Jacket, that much is true. And a little secret: While it might still be cold and blustery most places, the time is now to get ahead of the game and snag the Baro Dean Jacket before you’re caught in a downpour. You’re also going to want something that performs as great as it looks. In that regard, a clean bomber silhouette is always an easy starting point in terms of standout style, so the Dean Jacket gets it right. Quality construction isn’t a matter to be trifled with, either — tally up a few more points for the Dean Jacket, because it’s made from a DWR-treated blend of cotton and nylon. Oh, and the versatility? Take your pick of either a crisp Loden color or a sleek and simple Black — again, chalk up another win for your next spring rain jacket.
And the great thing about a hard-wearing piece of spring outerwear like the Baro Dean Jacket is that you can easily pair it up with pieces you already happen to be wearing this spring, from a charcoal Oxford to suede chukkas and slim light wash denim. It’s a versatile outerwear upgrade that just so happens to harness of-the-moment style — take a look around this spring and count the bomber jackets you might see. You’re also getting a piece that’s not overly technical or logo-heavy — that’s to be applauded when it comes to spring rain wear. That classic bomber silhouette is mighty handy in that regard. Yet, the Baro Dean Jacket has a little something else going on, too. The snap button front provides a touch of visual interest, setting it apart from other bomber jackets on the market. The slightly longer cut also makes more sense in the rain, as does the moisture-wicking liner and seam-sealed construction. Phew! That’s a heck of a lot of prime specs in one jacket. In all, that makes the Baro Dean Jacket sound pretty stylish to this writer, at least.
