    Ok, another simple idea for a thread, what's your favourite grab-and-go jacket?

    I mean, we all have 'favourite' jackets, some of which hardly see the light of day for one reason or another (eg heavy leather does not always equal ease of use).

    So I'm curious, which jacket of yours actually sees the most use?
    You know, the one that's always on the coat rack near the door or thrown over the back of a chair within comfortable arms reach for a quick trip to the shops?

    Here's mine for the moment;
    Barbour International Duke Wax Cotton Jacket

    Bloody comfortable, warm and water proof (well, to a degree);

    This unlined wool bomber jacket, it compliments most of my styles, it's lightweight and I think it looks great. It's (very well) made by a Japanese brand called Tenderloin. 81C6F403-5DE7-4523-8A0A-7B77E61C7FFB.jpeg 9EB9EE37-B546-47FF-A18B-B9CBB46401BB.jpeg

    Aero 50s HB in goat- it's lighter than HH but still substantial. At the moment, though, it's a bit too hot for a jacket.

    and the Chore Coat.

    Got a Barbour Duke too, in XXL which in fact wears a litte „spack“ around my shoulders, sleeves a little tight too for being really comfortable, so rather a walking than a resting jacket...may be I ´ll shrink into it a little more comfortably growing older...:)

    Cheers

    Interesting question as I just realized I don't have a favorite jacket or one I wear more often. :eek:

    We haven't seen a fit pic of your shearling lined leather levis trucker yet. Most certainly way too warm for now, but I'm just curious.

    Hey , I've seen those photos on the lounge before now , "just saying"...

    I don't have a 100% favourite , I deliberately wear a different jacket each time I am out on my Harley.

    AND each time I am out in the car I wear a different non zipper sleeved jacket.

    When I say "different" I mean different to the day and /or few days before.

    There is a "big cycle" going on...however MOST photos have an Indian Ocean backdrop (because I can!)

    Here is just one example , Schott 641HH café racer.

    DISCLAIMER ! photo used before on the lounge !

    My Goodwear lightweight A-2. Monarch. Super easy to wear. Giving it the Quartermaster's nod of approval before going out.

    I am way to calculated to have a "grab n go" jacket.. there is always a small amount of thought put into the one I am going to be wearing..
    I wont say it always looks good.. but i tried.

    I don’t really have a go-to. I try to alternate as much as I can. It’s a bit easier for me since I only normally wear one while riding.

    When one falls out of the rotation I immediately consider selling it.
