Part functional, always fashionable: lightweight jackets with style
With light jackets, the only difficult thing is choosing. Which one is right for you? These lightweights among men's jackets are always the choice when a winter jacket is too warm and a cardigan alone is too cold.
With changeable weather in spring and autumn, jackets for these seasons need to be real all-rounders – to protect you and be practical but also to look good and be comfortable to wear. Therefore, the outer material is robust and often has sporty qualities such as breathability. Lightweight jackets are only lightly lined or not lined at all, you can comfortably wear them over pullovers, long sleeve tops or shirts. Lightweight men's transition jackets can be found in various fits.
Ready for the smart retro look: blouson jackets
Classic men's blouson jackets exude a touch of British country chic. Easily recognized by the ribbed cuffs and hem – also characteristic are the stand-up collar with cord panel, which is closed with two press studs and flap pockets at the waist. These jackets are elegant and sporty at the same time.
The nylon retro blouson jacket harks back to the '80s in the typical style of a balloon silk training jacket, with strong colour blocking. The lightweight summer jacket goes perfectly with bright washed out jeans in a straight fit. Add a T-shirt with a striking print and white trainers – perfect.
Tip: a sportier alternative is a nylon blouson jacket with a hood. It is a cross between a windbreaker and a fashionable blouson jacket. The practical blouson jacket is an ideal companion for long summer days and nights because it also goes perfectly with bermuda shorts and T-shirts.
Real favourites: denim jackets for men
Always on-trend and one that you should definitely have in your wardrobe alongside a lightweight jacket is the denim jacket. They never go out of style because they are always in fashion and fit every outfit. In addition to the classic look in light or dark denim with a straight cut and buttons, you will also find trendy models in black with a striking print on the back. All that's missing is a colourful shirt and your retro look is perfect. A really cool style for meeting your friends at the bar.
An alternative to a down filling: lightweight quilted jackets for men
It doesn't always have to be a light men's down jacket, although of course that also works as a transition jacket. An animal-friendly alternative to down offers you a sporty, elegant quilted jacket with horizontal stitching. It is padded with 3M™ Thinsulate™, an innovative material that stores body heat, wicks away moisture and is super light. With their bright colours, quilted jackets look great in autumn, matching the seasonal leaves. Combine them casually with sweaters and jeans.
Lightweight men's jackets in a biker style
Biker jackets bring a cool casualness to your outfit, especially in a suede look. Style them with slim fit jeans, combining with a white T-shirt and boots. Great for an evening at the bar or club.
A classic among transition jackets: the gentleman's coat
If you mainly wear a suit at the office and regularly have appointments with business partners, you can't do without a cotton coat. This timeless garment is available as a simple short coat with a stand-up collar, as a trench coat or as a half-length coat with a lapel collar – and suitable for every season.
Tip: Always buy the coat so that it fits comfortably over a jacket. It shouldn't look creased or stretched.
It's all in the name: functional jackets
Functional jackets for sporty leisure have proven themselves as real all-rounders with a flair for style. They protect you from the wind, cold and rain and are therefore ideal for an autumnal walk in the forest or a bike ride when you don't want the bad weather to take you by surprise. They're are also there to make your everyday life easier.
