Not familiar with Buffalo Jackson yet? Or the very specific brand of men’s style essentials they produce? We’re about to change all of that today on your favorite neighborhood menswear blog. Yes indeed, the Shepherd Moleskin Shirt Jacket from Buffalo Jackson could just be your new go-to fall and winter weekend layer — it’s that great. For just $70, you get a shirt-jacket that blends comfort, style, rugged appeal and that distinctive blend of Southern style and Western charm that Buffalo Jackson does so well. It’s the same type of cotton that outdoorsmen have worn and looked to for dependable performance for decades, so you can rest assured that you’re covered there. As known for its leather goods as for its equally well-crafted apparel, the Shepherd Moleskin Shirt Jacket gets the job done, doubling as a mid-layer (perhaps underneath a well-tailored topcoat?) or a top layer in its own right — the Shepherd Moleskin Shirt Jacket certainly would work swimmingly atop a classic chambray shirt, along with rugged dark blue denim, for a chilly early weekend morning.
And if you fancy using the Shepherd Moleskin Shirt Jacket in place of a blazer atop an Oxford shirt, you can absolutely style it in that regard, too. The Wheat color in particular is a personal favorite, just as suited for wearing with the Flint and Tinder Stonewashed Jeans as it is with olive chinos and rugged brown leather boots. Front flap chest pockets add visual interest and functionality — feel free to use ’em to store your everday carry with ease. At the end of the day, there’s perhaps not a better, more rugged layer — atop a henley, underneath a camel topcoat, and so on — than this stylish shirt jacket. How will you be styling the Shepherd Moleskin Shirt Jacket this season? Let me know on Twitter.
