5 cool short length spring outerwear

Short length outerwear is a trendy item. In this issue, we introduce a selection of cool short-length outerwear recommended for spring!

Short length jackets are popular around the world, and their “trendiness” and “freedom of coordinate” are appealing!

Many of the fashion snaps taken by OTOKOMAE’s editorial department show that short length jackets are not only popular among fashionable men in Japan, but also around the world. The following is a sampling of street snapshots of short-length outerwear wearers. In addition to military jackets such as the L-2B*, M-65, and Fatigue Jacket, coach jackets, shirt jackets, mountain parkas, and swing tops are also popular. The range of wearing styles is surprisingly wide, from an American casual style with thick denim or chinos, to an extended classic Italian style with slacks and dress shoes, or a sports mix style with jogger pants and sneakers.

L-2B is a flight jacket without padding, designed to be worn in light zones with temperatures ranging from 10 to 30 degrees Celsius. MA-1 refers to a flight jacket with padding designed to be worn in the intermediate zone, where temperatures range from -10°C to 10°C. MA-2B refers to a flight jacket with padding designed to be worn in the light zone, where temperatures range from -10°C to 30°C.

Cool Short Length Spring Outerwear (1)Stone Island's Compass Badge Padded Jacket

This Italian fashion brand was founded in 1982. The brand is known for its sense of urban design while utilizing vintage outerwear designs and details, and has attracted attention at the forefront of the men’s fashion industry, collaborating with Nike and Supreme in the past. From this brand, we picked up a short outerwear perfect for spring, based on the MA-1, or L-2B type design without padding. The L-2B is characterized by its chunky silhouette and flap pockets that combine curves and straight lines, but this model has been refined with a slimmer silhouette and minimalist pockets, which have become Stone Island’s brand icon. A compass badge is attached to the lower left shoulder to accentuate the look.
