Time is of the essence when shopping for the best spring style essentials, and that’s no more true than when it comes down to picking up one of the best jackets for men. The time to do that, as it were, is right now, which brings us to today’s Style Pick of the Week from a brand you really can trust: Buck Mason. You surely know all about the USA-focused style purveyors, inspired by old-school classics made fresh and modern, be it one of the best USA-made T-shirts or your new go-to denim shirt. You can assuredly add another spring style move to that list though, as the Buck Mason Storm Stopper Ghia Driver’s Jacket is — quite simply — one of the coolest spring jackets to buy right now.
The Buck Mason Storm Stopper Ghia Driver’s Jacket is a revamped take on the Harrington jacket, a classically British style move that was first developed in the 1930s as a lightweight cotton windbreaker with a stand-up collar (in fact, I wrote all about the best Harrington jackets over at Fatherly!). The key with this rugged Buck Mason jacket revolves around the fact that it’s made from the brand’s famed water-repellent Storm Stopper Twill, a touch that makes it easily one of the best men’s jackets for spring.
The Buck Mason Storm Stopper Ghia Driver’s Jacket is made from a durable cotton-poly-twill blend, finished with hand warmer hip pockets and a simple zip-up design, plus that stand-up, two-button collar for an iconic look and feel. Vintage-style back shoulder detailing adds reinforcement at key stress points, while the fit should prove nicely tailored, but with room to layer a Buck Mason denim shirt or one of the best men’s henleys (or both!). The Buck Mason Storm Stopper Ghia Driver’s Jacket also stands out nicely in terms of style points: The dusty Stone-meets-Sand color is distinctive and easy to pair with the best light wash jeans, for instance.
At the end of the day, the Buck Mason Storm Stopper Ghia Driver’s Jacket is simply a mighty fine, highly versatile and durable jacket you can wear with plenty of casual style staples. The lightweight design, accented with a DWR finish for weather-ready performance, also means it’s the sort of jacket you can wear for polished road trip style from day to night. Best of all, it’s fairly priced at under $200 (the Buck Mason Storm Stopper Ghia Driver’s Jacket will set you back $195 at Buck Mason), and it’s built to last. Sounds to me like your new favorite spring jacket checks all the right boxes. Shop accordingly.
