#2210 Good Question

Photo: The Sartorialist
Hi Isaac, Looking for a recommendation for the perfect university/going out in cold weather/ throw over anything bomber/ anorak jacket that I feel is black (though I could be swayed), that is kinda of simple/has multiple textures/fabrics/has some kind of quirky detail that I can appreciate. And super durable. I have taken to just trying on every jacket I see but still can't find it. Help?

I reckon you can't beat an olive green canvas parka – you'll find it at any army surplus store (every city in the world has about 50 of them), it'll cost you less than $100 and it's warm, durable as hell and it'll go with everything, as evidenced by the gentleman above. Throw it on over a suit and you'll look like a fresh Italian dude; wear it with a fisherman's sweater and rolled up jeans and you'll look like a cool kid from Berlin. It's the perfect student jacket!
