If you’ve been reading the blog over these past few weeks, you know that we’re all about utility and rugged appeal this time of year, when the weather is still a bit breezy and the right layers (and indeed, the right spring style essentials, period!) can go a long way. Naturally, that’s where one of the best spring jackets enters the fray, with the right design and durability to work for your wardrobe for a long, long time in the weeks ahead.
And as you search for that proper spring jacket or shirt jacket, there’s an under-the-radar brand deserving of your time and hard-earned cash: That’d be New York-based Sea Culture, an independent, family-owned brand with a knack for making breezy, hard-working, classic menswear that draws plenty of inspiration from breezy days on the coast and warm, starry nights around a bonfire.
Attention to detail and craftsmanship, plus a focus on the classics, are the name of the game at Sea Culture, founded by Dan Tagliamonte — they now offer everything from one of the best men’s henleys to breezy shorts and of course, this shirt jacket (and much more).
It all comes together in the Sea Culture Sitka Harbor Jacket, a rugged men’s shirt jacket ready for cool spring nights — and even suited for your fall wardrobe. But let’s focus on what makes this stylish shirt jacket ready for the season at hand, shall we?
Of course, we’ve talked plenty about the best shirt jackets for men over the past handful of weeks, but picking up a new-yet-classic dependable, multi-season jacket is never a bad bet, is it? And the Sea Culture Sitka Harbor Jacket boasts the right specs to work well for your right now (atop a sustainable Sea Culture T-shirt) or when cooler weather rolls around again later this year. It starts with 100 percent cotton canvas construction, a durable touch that elevates the Sea Culture Sitka Harbor Jacket above your typical buttondown.
Plus, it’s packed with plenty of pockets for plenty of utility, including two interior pockets, exterior slash pockets and a button chest pocket, all well-suited for your everyday carry.
The Sea Culture Sitka Harbor Jacket, with its reliable yet soft cotton canvas build, is the sort of shirt jacket that gets better with age, breaking in the more you wear it — and for days on the coast and nights back inland, I’d wager you’re going to be wearing this classic “shacket” a heck of a lot. Give Sea Culture a look and get ready for the rest of spring in style.
