Ask the MB -- Denim Jacket

Spiewak Chester Jacket via Tobi, $102.00
Spiewak Chester Jacket via Tobi. $102.00.
Q: MB, stumbled across your site and laughed embarrassingly loudly -- now I'm looking in vain for a nice, light denim jacket for spring (Diesel, perhaps, despite the brand's many missteps?) ... any help? Also, once I've got this jacket, how's about pairing it with tan or brownish Steven Alan cords?
--Andrew


A: Andrew: First, nice call on the spring cords; that can be an effective, surprising look. Second, when we hear the word "jacket" the first thing we think of is "Spiewak." As we've mentioned before, their stuff is stylish, well-made, and affordable. This Chester Jacket even has wooden buttons, satisfying (and even exceeding) the MB principle of organic materials.

(Note: Military-inspiration is peaking on the trend curve, so you may not want to feel like wearing it next spring.)
