‘Tis the season for chambray, and the A Vontade BDU Tropical Jacket in Light Chambray proves that going lightweight doesn’t mean going simple. The BDU Tropical Jacket is as functional as any BDU (Battle Dress Uniform) garment- just feast your eyes on all those pockets. You can definitely wear this one bushwhacking in the warmer months, or on a hot, commuter-packed train, although I know which option I’d prefer.
This 100% cotton yarn-dyed ripstop chambray is super light, but also durable, thanks to its ripstop construction. You won’t need to worry about babying it too much, just wear it hard and wear it frequently for the best results. Made in Japan, this BDU beauty features bartack reinforcements throughout, a hidden button placket with white buttons, button-adjusting waist and cuffs, reinforced elbows, and white contrast stitching that set the whole thing off.
This piece from A Vontade proves that you don’t have to limit your outerwear to heavy-duty materials. Is there a chambray jacket in your closet yet? Might be a good time to jump into a lightweight security blanket.
