    Hello.

    I'm looking for a jacket, something that's quite light, in the sense that I can have it half-way open and it shows the t-shirt underneath, without looking silly, but something that will last well through winter.

    (Basically, it's socially acceptable to wear the same jacket/coaty-type thing everyday, but just change the t-shirt underneath. This is cheaper than buying loads of different hoodies and wearing them half-way open to show the t-shirt, as it is not socially acceptable to wear the same hoodie every day.)

    As a very, very rough guideline, something like this demonstrates what I'm on about:

    http://www.burton.co.uk/webapp/wcs/s...S05VBLK_NEWMOD

    It's not that nice, but is a jacket light enough to be worn half-way open to show the t-shirt, but 'coaty' enough to be socially acceptable to wear very regularly.

    Something like that, brown would probably be a nicer colour, possibly a dark green colour, maybe even a grey or black :eek:

    Oh and it can't be too expensive, like £60 tops tops.

    I think I've been too picky

    Thank you!

    Tried both

    Everything there is too centered around branding and shapeless

    But thank you for replying

    Form those two sites, this is nearish to what would be cool:

    http://www.republic.co.uk/Jackets/Cr...ket/invt/57714

    The top of the jacket is manky though, and it's not got the colour or shape to hold it.

    This is perfect! http://www.designerwear.co.uk/conten...zip-jacket-g22

    BUT! It's sadly a nylon jacket so it's very thin and flimsy with no shape

    If anyone can find that jacket, in a jackety form! then please tell!

    Not bad, if it was a green/lighter brown it would look more inviting, not bad though.
