Although I personally see no evidence of it so far, spring is well underway and summer is not all that far off, so a number of retailers are bringing out a fun range of linen and cotton jackets. As someone who isn't called upon to wear a suit everyday, I like odd jackets that can be worn casually with jeans or dressed up a bit with a shirt and tie. As the weather gets warmer, I'm hoping that I'll be replacing my tweed and corduroy jackets that currently fill this role with something more lightweight.
Hackett does this sort of thing particularly well and has a particularly wide range in store now, taking a bit of inspiration from collegiate-style boating blazers without creating something that can only possibly be worn at Henley Regatta. A jacket like the one below can cover a whole range of different levels of formality, and would be as appropriate in a fairly casual office environment as it would be at a more formal barbecue or summer party.
