A Closer Look at the Oliver Spencer Suede Buck Jacket
As the sun starts to come out for more than five minutes at a time, and rain becomes more of a vague possibility than a certainty, a suede jacket becomes a more viable outerwear option for the stylish gent. Get the proportions or styling wrong, however, and you run the risk of looking more cowboy than a rock star. Luckily, menswear mogul Oliver Spencer comes to the rescue with a minimally styled, versatile option in the Buck jacket.
A mainstay of Oliver Spencer’s collection, the Buck jacket appears in a variety of different fabrics, from crisp cotton in the Summer to heavy corduroy in the Autumn. This version, cut from butter-soft, caramel suede, is one of the most popular versions, channeling the Seventies trend that’s been popular the last few years. Unlined in the body to keep it lightweight, the jacket features minimal styling, the front only broke up by the straight yoke, with side pockets hidden in the seams, a two-way zip closure and an interior pocket for your small essentials. The sleeves and waist have wooden button adjusters to help get the perfect fit The light, sleek nature of the jacket means it can be worn like an overshirt in warmer weather — try rolling up the sleeves for a bit of insouciant cool — or as a layer under a heavier coat when the chill sets in, adding textural interest to any outfit.
