#OOTD: How to Layer Up the Right Way for Spring and Summer

What’s missing from your wardrobe? Is it one of the best shirt jackets for men? If you wear your overshirt the right way this (late) spring and (early) summer, it can easily become a casual ensemble that turns into a new go-to look, no matter where you’re headed or what’s on your (late) spring and (early) summer agenda. Of course, it’s not possible without one of the best shirt jackets for men in your rotation, the kind that blends rugged appeal with standout good looks and versatile style.  Naturally, if it gets too hot, ditch the shirt jacket. But for now, go for it. That shirt jacket is, in fact, the Flint and Tinder CPO Shirt Jacket, ladies and gentlemen. It’s got all the grab-and-go versatility that the best men’s shirt jackets have, from the sturdy-yet-lightweight construction to the cool, spring and summer-friendly color from Flint and Tinder. The right shirt jacket wears well with plenty of other laidback seasonal picks, including a slub cotton T-shirt and slim light wash jeans.

This is a look that’s going to pull double-duty at the brewery patio or the sidewalk coffee shop, and especially at that long-awaited reunion with friends and family this season. Toss in handy pockets for your everyday carry essentials, team the look with your new favorite chukka boots, then get ready to enjoy one heck of a fine spring or summer day. As mentioned above, if it gets too hot out, ditch your Flint and Tinder shirt jacket and toss it in your rugged carryall bag. Does that sound too easy? Well, that’s probably a good thing, because it actually is that easy to put together the best #OOTD for spring and summer. Have a great one out there, folks — the full look is below.
