Now is the perfect time to mix things up. But you don’t have to sacrifice style or warmth or give up your laid- back look just because you pulled a few blazes or sport jackets from your closet. The answer is today’s modern soft coat. A soft coat is the quintessential middle ground. It can be worn a multitude of different ways. You can dress it up with neckwear or down with a sport shirt or knit. A soft jacket gives relazed casualness and adds a flair of luxury. Patterened soft coats in rich plains and checks are relaxed and the trend moving forward for sport coats.
