It’s the kind of multi-faceted piece that Reid does so well, featuring a water-resistant exterior nylon shell that just so happens to be crafted from Reid’s custom Camelia fabric — you might not find a more durable shirt jacket (in camo, no less!) than this one.

Reid takes great care when it comes to the details, too.

The camo print on this surprisingly rugged shirt jacket might seem to be a bit too much at first, but rest assured: When styled the right way, this piece can be minimal-yet-attention-grabbing (in a good way). The best men’s shirt jackets work well with other menswear classics, especially those more geared toward spring style, like a slim pair of light wash denim and a crisp white T-shirt — in this case, your new favorite shirt jacket does all the talking. You can also wear the Billy Reid Camelia Packable Shirt Jacket on the road (when it’s not packed in your bag, of course) — simply pair it up with tan chinos and a slim chambray shirt, then add rugged leather chukka boots for the ultimate in all-day travel style. To head to the office — yes, the office, swap in this stylish shirt jacket in place of a blazer atop your favorite Oxford shirt, then keep those same chinos and chukka boots handy. It’s a versatile, unique combo that’s just different enough to add a shot in the arm to your wardrobe, and that’s what it should be about as we start spring. No doubt about it, this shirt jacket could become your new go-to layering move.
