The Tuesday Steal: Billy Reid’s Flight Jacket Is One of the Coolest Fall Jackets to Shop Now

Thanks for joining us during today’s Tuesday Steal, where the featured item in question isn’t exactly a full-on steal, per se, but that doesn’t make it any less essential, or any less than one of the best men’s jackets for fall. In fact, seeing as the first day of fall is tomorrow, it’s as crucial a time as any to get your new favorite jacket, and to shop a retailer that knows plenty about the best fall menswear: We’re talking, of course, about Alabama-based menswear designer Billy Reid, makers of some of the best men’s shirting, essential selvedge denim and now, one of the best fall jackets for men. It’s the Billy Reid Flight Jacket that draws high praise from my neck of the woods today, with both old-school and modern appeal in spades. It’s worth noting that when it comes to Billy Reid, you’re often investing in quality, rather than scoring a major discount (that’s what makes it so noteworthy when Billy Reid has a sale, after all). And yet, that’s not a bad thing at all, because the rugged and durable Billy Reid Flight Jacket has a ton going for it (to say the least).

Billy Reid’s Flight Jacket is the perfect blend of rugged and modern

The exceedingly dependable and well-made Billy Reid Flight Jacket has all the specs you need in one of the best fall jackets, right down to the use of dry wax canvas for weather-ready construction. It comes from Scotland’s Halley Stevenson, innovative fabric makers that have been in business since the 1860s. Yes indeed, Billy Reid knows how to partner with the best of the best, which is what makes the Billy Reid Flight Jacket so essential, even with a price tag of $448. It’s more than worth it, though — keep scrolling.

The remarkable and seriously cool Billy Reid Flight Jacket is the kind of jacket that only gets better with age, and it’ll break in more and more each time you wear it. That being said, you’ll surely want to wear this jacket a heck of a lot, especially with a rugged Billy Reid denim shirt or even a simple but classic Billy Reid henley. It’s a versatile piece of grab-and-go outerwear meant for breezy fall days strolling through the park or even zipping around the city to work (team it with an Oxford shirt in place of a blazer for a laidback day at the office). The Billy Reid Flight Jacket is also meant to keep you warm when fall weather is at its worst. It’s lined with what the brand calls Comfortemp AIR poly fill, made from recycled polyester to fight the elements and add some sustainable functionality into the mix.

The Billy Reid Flight Jacket is also versatile and easily wearable in other ways — note the rich Khaki color, which should team especially well with dark blue denim, navy or olive chinos or even burgundy corduroys. It’s as good as it gets all the way through, right down to the dark horn buttons and two chest flap patch pockets. The Billy Reid Flight Jacket covers all the proper bells and whistles you’d expect from your new favorite fall jacket, more than justifying the investment-level (yet still accessible!) price. Make it yours today, then start plotting your next fall outing.
