Last Sunday, I was getting a client ready for the Oscars and a friend of his was wearing this incredible lightweight cotton and wool jacket that I knew I had to share with you. It's been quite awhile since a jacket got me this excited. There's several reasons why I love this jacket for Spring and Summer, or year-round if you live in a warmer climate: lightweight cotton and wool fabric, incredible construction, texture and color, and its so damn stylish. Normally, I'm not a fan of pockets on the front of a jacket for all body types, as they can add bulk and throw off your proportions if you're a thinner guy, but, as you'll see in the video above, these pockets blended in so seamlessly that it isn't an issue at all.
To see how I'd style a complete outfit with this jacket AND find where to buy details, check out my article linked below:

I hope you liked this video, I normally do longer series' about men's style, men's etiquette, men's grooming, men's dating and other men's lifestyle topics, including some occasional vlogging. But I thought this would be fun to do a new quick series when I'm out and about and see a great item or thing or something to show you and explain why you should consider getting it. Definitely check out my other videos if you liked this one!
If you want this jacket but seems a bit expensive to you, just go any post-soviet country (china, russia, ukraine, north korea etc...) to the poorest region, and find some blue collar or factory job, and you get one for free as a protection gear :)
Josh Pain Topman.com has a wool mix flight jacket for sale that I found through the AW website. It's very nice but I should have bought mine one size bigger and it's out of stock in the bigger sizes now. Their jackets are true slim fitting and a little tighter in the shoulders. You might need to go up one or two sizes above your standard US size.
The Apolis jacket is decently nice looking I came across it when researching what a "chore jacket" is, it has that architect/carpenter vibe to it. Not really an every day jacket per say since it has no slanted pockets that keep hands warm and that hold stuff securely without falling out but it looks really nice as a secondary/tertiary jacket.
Btw Ash what do you think about Massimo Dutti jackets they're not made in the USA that's why the 1/3 of the price but do they look useful for your clients ? #AskAW
i preffer bomber jacket i like it more and it doesnt have so many pokets if this one was on army green hmmm it might be more military style with dark denim and brown boots white v neck would look awesome! ps what ever you put on Dorian looks great the dude is like a model ! cheers!
F or 25 years we have provided deluxe wilderness outpost fishing trips from our Armstrong location into beautiful Wabakimi Provincial Park and surrounding lakes.
Yes, we take you where the fishing is extraordinary , but there is more than fishing. Yearly family gatherings sharing a wilderness experience in comfort. Father - son (or daughter) bonding trips or Husband and wife celebrating a second honeymoon with the added spectacular outpost fishing or `the buddy trips where the tall tales get taller.
Its a big time stress reliever! . how do you think about anything else when you are fighting a fish?
Greg and I had a great week. we caught over 1000 walleye. There were well over 200 in the slot size (>18"). This is the most large walleye that have ever been caught on a trip to whiteclay for me. The slot size protection is working. It seems that each trip has more large fish being caught. Our largest northern was 43". It was caught on a jig while walleye fishing.
Greg and I sent see what you missed letters to about a dozen folks. Hope that translates into a large group for next June. . Fran and I are looking forward to the August fishing trip .

Received your card. Congratulations on 25 Years! We speak often about the great times we had at Ogoki! A Tribute to you both!
Best Regards, Rich Craddock.
What a nice surprise to find your post card in my mail yesterday. Twenty-five years is a long time to do anything; much less a business like yours with all the uncertainties of weather, exchange-rates, two-country economies, etc. There is a reason why your business has survived and (hopefully) thrived. you do the wilderness fishing experience better than anyone in the outdoor sport vacation business.
Dear Judy and Paul,
Congratulations on 25 years. I have many fond memories of my time with Jack at Ogoki. Hope all is well with you.
. . . Nicole will take you on a guided tour!
This website will take you every step of the way for a worry free fishing vacation!
Let us introduce ourselves; Judy & Paul Boucher and family. Weve been doing this for 25 years and have learned a thing or two on how to take the worry out of the wilderness experience. Our staff will help you with anything you may not understand or solve any mechanical glitch right away. In short: we treat you like family!
Just a note to let you know our recent fishing junket to your Mojikit South Outpost.
Ive been coming to Armstrong area since 1972 and have probably flown in with 6-7 different outfitters over the years to numerous outposts. Your Mojikit South camp is clearly the nicest camp I have been to. The cabin is beautiful and roomy. Great kitchen and dining area. Beautiful screened in deck and outside porch overlooking the channel. Large chest freezer and a frig that actually keeps things cold. Screened in fishing cleaning house with running water. Bedrooms that are roomy. Vaulted ceiling the the cabin is a plus. The cabin is centrally located to both the lake and the Ogoki Reservoir.
The boats are the best that Ive ever experienced at an outpost. The inside bottoms consist of flat carpeted panels. easy to get in and out of. 1st time Ive fished an outpost with "dry" feet. The boats had comfortable swivel seats and 15 & 20 hp 4-stroke engines that worked great.
We will definitely be back. Everything about Ogoki Frontier was quality. My two grandchildren had the time of their lives, as did the other 2 members of our party. Thanks for the memories.
