Wallace Selects: Transitional Jackets

September can be a difficult month to dress for. It’s no longer hot enough for shorts and tshirts, but it’s not quite sweater weather either. Allow us to present the official Wallace solution to this quandary: the transitional jacket.

One of mankind’s greatest sartorial inventions, the transitional jacket offers breathability on sunny fall afternoons and warmth on chilly evenings, all while looking miles sharper than your average flannel shirt. When the weather doesn’t seem to know what season it is, we appreciate a versatile outer layer. This past season we’ve assembled quite the collection of transitional jackets, so let’s take a survey of some shop favourites (and don’t forget, they’re all on sale!). It’s no secret that we’re fans of military- and workwear-inspired outerwear, and the Goldwin Traveler Blouson, Kestin Ambleside Parka, and Albam Twill Carpenters Jacket scratch that itch. The Garbstore Field Jacket has a similar vibe, but comes in a unique slate grey colour and is constructed from Japanese Cordura fabric—it kind of looks like workwear from the future. For the minimalists out there, we have the Snow Peak 2L Octa Jacket and Schnayderman’s Zipshirt. We like the Octa jacket for rainy days thanks to its waterproof fabric, while the Zipshirt’s cotton-linen blend is perfect for hot September afternoons. Rounding out this selection are the Schnayderman’s Denim Jacket Double-Dyed and the Reception Pop Over in multicolour stripes, two colourful jackets that are not for the faint of heart. In our Schnayderman’s SS20 blog post, we described the Denim Jacket Double-Dyed’s colour as “turmeric-meets-automotive-grease”. We still think that’s an accurate assessment. As for the Pop Over, it’s a perfect example of what Reception does well: have fun.
