Calgary’s Best Spring Coats

It’s a tired cliché, but the fact is, Calgary’s weather changes often, and usually without warning. Come spring, it’s never safe to assume a day that starts sunny will stay that way for long. As such, a proper spring jacket is crucial. Here, five of the finest.

The Bomber Jacket

If any province knows inclement weather, it’s Montreal. You won’t go wrong with this lamb leather bomber jacket by Montreal’s Mackage; it combines a classic silhouette with contemporary features, like a nylon hood, hidden inside the collar. $795. Holt Renfrew in TD Square, 317 7 Ave. SW.

The Military Jacket
Made of Micro Ripstop nylon, the Belfast is durable and comfortable, on-trend and classic. $159. Mission, 616 17 Ave. S.W.

The Contemporary K-Way

The classic K-Way gets a cushy update in the Portland by Analog Clothing, which offers the comfort of cotton lining along with the utility of a windbreaker. $89. Source, 930 17 Ave. S.W.

The Sweater Coat

Club Monaco’s Bryan Sweater Coat works as well indoors as it does outside, perfect for the lazy man who still wants to look his best. $189. Club Monaco, Chinook Centre.

The Khaki Hoodie

From Korean brand Kai-Aakmann, this versatile khaki zip looks as sharp with jeans as it does with formal slacks. Wear it for a night on the town – especially that night on the town that brings Calgary’s seemingly annual spontaneous May snowstorm. $180. Leo Boutique, 810b 16 Ave. S.W.
