We finally made it! Spring is in the air (or at least right around the corner) so that means it’s time to shed a couple of layers, retire that bulky winter coat and upgrade to one of these stylish and functional men’s spring coats.
Who’s ready for spring? If you’re tired of looking like a head wrapped in one giant bulky coat with just your eyes peeking out, this is officially the time of year for you. Depending on where you live in the country, spring can bring on the warmer weather for a few months or it can mess with your mind by having some days on the chilly side and others on the hot side. You need a jacket that can adapt to the ever-fickle ways of Mother Nature. This season we’re seeing a variety of blues, functional olive green options and, of course, some staple denim options. Shop our picks for some of the best spring jackets for men (so far) in 2018. Here’s to warmer times!
