Ahhhhh! [inhales theatrically] You smell that? That’s spring, springing. Which means it’s time for you to get right emotionally with the idea that you won’t have a damn clue what the weather’s doing on any given day until summer arrives. Sure, it might be freezing in the morning. But who knows? By lunchtime, it might be a balmy 50 degrees, and you’ll want to go outside, and unless you want to suffer some self-induced heat stroke, that big, burly puffer you’ve been reaching for these last few months isn’t ideal for the job.
So, yeah. You need a spring jacket. This is great news, because you have an absolutely enormous amount of options to play with. Denim? Sure! Something more technical, that can pull double duty for a coffee run and an actual run, wicking sweat and moving with you through your workout? We’ve got those, too. We’ve also got lightweight parkas, chore coats, bombers, leather jackets, fleece zip-ups, car coats, and even more. So give that puffer a well-deserved rest and get yourself something you can layer now, wear on its own later, and enjoy till the temperature creeps so high that you have to put it aside and wait patiently for the cool weather to come back. It’s light outerwear season, baby! Let’s get it.

At this price, you can stock up. Get a lighter wash to get ready for the warmer months, and keep a darker one on deck so you can start cheffing up some serious fades.
Or, if you’re more of a (lightweight, spring shower-friendly) parka guy, Uniqlo’s got one of those, too.
A track jacket is the quintessential casual layering piece when the weather starts to warm up. Ben Sherman’s is a slightly elevated, more tailored cousin of the one you’d wear to the gym.

Denim Chore Jacket
This Lee denim chore jacket might invite you to its band’s intimate indie show later.
Everlane’s take on the denim jacket is made in a factory that recycles 98 percent of its water. That’s something—other than how good your denim jacket looks—to feel good about.

Nike All Conditions Gear Rain Shell
If you’re more of a sporty spice, snag a nylon Nike jacket. This one is both windproof and waterproof, with plenty of storage to keep your gear close and secure when a spring shower pops up. If you’re really going to be out in the elements, cop the matching pants for head-to-toe protection.
Striped Chore Jacket
Todd Snyder’s striped chore jacket adds a bit of fun to your spring wardrobe. If you’re normally a solid basics guy but looking to expand your range, this is a good first bet. We’re not asking you to wear cheetah print—yet. Plus, if you need a little extra motivation to shop, it’s half-off right now (regular price is $348!).
Keating Quilted Shirt Jacket
18 East’s taslan shirt jacket expresses an assured sense of style, but subtly. Like all of their offerings, the magic is in the details: wide quilted panels, deep pockets, a textured patch. If flashy cool isn’t your vibe, this oversized shacket is perfect for you.
Lululemon’s riff on the car coat is water-repellant, for wetter spring days. It is mature in style, but also stretchy and comfy, in classic Lululemon form.

Tyson Leather Biker Jacket
A good leather jacket is essential for cooler spring days and nights. This AllSaints biker will stand the test of time (and make you appear just a little edgier than you actually are).
Maize Bomber Jacket
Nobis’s high-end, technical take on the bomber jacket isn’t just slick as hell—it’s also windproof, waterproof, and machine washable. Pretty nice combo, no?
Stripe Knit Bomber Jacket
This knit bomber (yes: knit! bomber!) by Nigerian-British designer Tokyo James is made for those early-spring days when you’re oh so ready for sunshine, but there’s still a chill in the air.
