There’s the popular adage about leaving something better off if “it ain’t broke,” and then there’s the Todd Snyder approach to menswear, which involves taking the brand’s most popular menswear essentials and making them even better. That’s what the famed NYC menswear designer has done here with the Todd Snyder English Waxed Dylan Jacket, a hard-wearing upgrade of the famed Todd Snyder Dylan Jacket, traditionally made from soft suede. The newest version of the iconic trucker jacket, slimmed down and made modern by the inimitable designer, is both rugged and refined, as many of Snyder’s best pieces are (take the Todd Snyder x Champion collaboration, which turns athletic wear into styles cool enough to wear to the office).
The Todd Snyder English Waxed Dylan Jacket is just the latest and greatest upgrade to hit the brand’s digital shelves, and it’s worth calling out for several reasons, first and foremost among them the fact that the waxed cotton iteration of the Todd Snyder Dylan Jacket is nearly 50 percent less than the original Dylan Jacket. Is your interest piqued yet? It should be, but the list of pros goes on and on.
The Todd Snyder English Waxed Dylan Jacket checks off every box you’d expect from a designer like Todd Snyder, starting with the tough-as-nails construction. It’s made in England using 100 percent cotton that’s waxed and treated by British Millerain, makers of some of the finest weather-ready fabrics on the planet. The Olive color is highly versatile and just so happens to be a perfect shade for fall: Pair it with indigo denim, tan chinos or even dark brown or navy corduroy trousers with ease. Plus, it’s finished off with a blanket lining for added warmth, while the contrasting moleskin collar calls to mind other classic British waxed jackets.
Yes indeed, the Todd Snyder English Waxed Dylan Jacket has plenty going for it, including that low price (compared to the original), and the refined details you only find at Todd Snyder. Last but not least, because it’s a trucker jacket, it’s a piece of outerwear that’s for more than just show — use the front button and side hip pockets to carry your EDC with ease. When you need it the most (like on a rainy fall day or a chilly winter morning), the Todd Snyder English Waxed Dylan Jacket steps right up and delivers. Cheers to the season ahead, my friends.
