Your Man Can Stay Cool during Warm Weather in a Soft Coat

By: Donna Chaffins | Date: May 7, 2014 | Categories: Fashion

I love a man in a sport coat. I understand adding a coat of any kind during warmer weather isn’t comfortable for most men, but a soft coat is perfect.

My husband can tell you I love him in a pair of jeans paired with a soft coat. It’s dressier than a sweater, but more casual than a sports coat. A great way for a man to pull off dress-casual.

I especially like a linen/silk or linen/cotton blend in the summer and the way it hangs/drapes on a man is very flattering, too.

Did you know that soft coats get their name because they lack the internal structure (sleeve heads, shoulder pads, and canvas chest pieces) of a sartorial sport coat?

If a man has a business meeting, going to a wedding, or just wants to look nice for a date with his significant other, the soft coat is the best choice for hot and/or humid weather.

With the soft coat you don’t have to sacrifice style to stay cool. It’s easy to dress to impress in the warmer months with a soft coat. Check out this infographic and learn more about this summer versatile alternative to the sport coat:

    My husband doesn’t do coats but I actually think they look really great on most guys.

    I think these are so stylish for men. My husband doesn’t wear clothing like this but I wish he would because I love the look of guys in sport coats.

  8. My son loves a sport jacket! My husband use to be a spiffy dresser but rarely buys himself any clothes. I’ve never heard of soft coats.

    A very classic Gatsby sort of look 🙂

    I think it is nice to see a man in a soft coat. I especially like the look with jeans and loafers.

    My husband is definitely a blue collar guy with a blue collar style, but he looks so fantastic on the rare occasions he wears a suit or dress clothes. Definitely one of my weaknesses!

    My hubby is totally into jackets. He doesn’t have any linen jackets but I do want to get him some.
