“I like what Penfield has done with this field jacket because it’s not too heavy, it’s not belted, but it still has an authentic look to it. The silhouette is a little bit shorter and the styling is a little bit younger and cooler. It’s waxed-cotton canvas, so it’s not only rainproof and windproof but also thorn-proof, which makes it great for riding a motorcycle or walking down the street in the inclement elements.
The snap buttons are burnished a bit so they aren’t too bright, and it’s got that nice standup collar. The jacket has some real masculine styling to it, both as a weekend staple and as a sportcoat replacement, with a shirt and tie under it. And the price is right.”
