Sometimes, stepping into a new season is all about turning back the clock. Take the good folks at Buck Mason, a brand with a knack for taking old-school styles and updating them in a way that results in nothing less than, say, one of the best spring jackets for men (among many other throwback staples at which the brand excels). Whether it’s an eye-catching rugby polo or one of the best thermal henleys, there’s something special about gear made to last — especially when the piece in question is the impossibly cool yet highly functional Buck Mason Storm Stopper Deck Jacket.
Helpfully, you’ll find it within the carefully curated Buck Mason Spring Preview section, an enticing look ahead at breezy weather and breezy layers, from the famed selection of Buck Mason T-shirts to perfectly executed lightweight sweaters and of course, the Buck Mason Storm Stopper Deck Jacket.
It all starts with the fabric when we’re talking spring jackets, especially one of the best spring rain jackets, and this vintage-inspired jacket is built with yarn-dyed cotton-poly weather cloth, perfect for standing up to spring breezes. Of course the throwback inspiration behind the Buck Mason Storm Stopper Deck Jacket is applause-worthy, too.
That’s because the Buck Mason Storm Stopper Deck Jacket takes its cues from deck jackets, with a seemingly simple design that actually packs in tons of functionality. It’s fully lined in nylon and finished off with corduroy cuff and collar accents in old-school fashion (turn up the collar for added protection from the elements), while the Buck Mason Storm Stopper Deck Jacket also boasts a drawcord waist for a snug fit.
For good measure, the Tanker Green color is utterly classic, almost as cool as a jacket you’d discover in an old Polaroid, while the combination of both a zipper and button front offers even more protection from the elements. The price tag on the Buck Mason Storm Stopper Deck Jacket is agreeable considering it could easily morph into an everyday, casual spring jacket as well as a highly dependable jacket on breezy, rainy days.
It’ll set you back $228 at Buck Mason, not a bad price for your new favorite spring jacket. It’s the kind of casually rugged jacket meant to be worn with Buck Mason jeans or even stretch chinos, whether on the road or at home around town, and it’s never too early to prep for the season ahead.
