Casual Ready-to-Go Wear: The Safari Jacket

I’ve been getting a lot of wear out of this safari jacket. It has plenty of pockets, including a zippered and a buttoned inner pocket. The lining is a half mesh number that keeps the rig cool(-er). A half cape is a nice addition to the back. I’ve just Scotchguarded it to make it water-resistant.  In a pinch, it is long enough to cover a suit coat or sport coat. My only complaint is the bi-swing back, which doesn’t ever lie flat. It continually poofs out. Well, considering how cheaply the garment was made (Chinese manufacture) for J. Peterman, I shouldn’t complain. Look for my take on this in the future. I think that the ICON collection could use an Hatari or Mogambo jacket.
