Metro Man & Metro Home

By Kim Taylor

This lightweight jacket duo will be versatile enough to cover casual outings, whether that entails wrangling or playing squash. Both brands have been around for quite a while, and are crafted well enough to last for many seasons to come.

Fila’s selection of athletic sport jackets in an array of styles and colors will take you from the golf course to the tennis court, to the soccer field, and to an outdoor café for drinks. That’s a lot of mileage. Incredibly versatile and designed for comfort, they’re also flattering, lightweight, and great for traveling. Fila was founded in 1911 in the Italian Alps and its classic design is both timeless and reminiscent of European elegance. Shop the various collections at http://www.filagolf.com, and see what captures your eye.

Jean jackets never lose their appeal, since cotton denim grows soft and even more comfortable with age. Wrangler’s jean jackets showcase vintage American style, suggesting big skies with dramatic, red-hued clouds at sunset – even if you are simply strolling through Williamsburg or Central Park. Wrangler’s jackets are available lined and unlined, and in dark or beige colors. Visit http://www.Wrangler.com to check out the jeans, jackets, pants, shorts, shirts, accessories and Big & Tall selections.
