A Man’s Windbreaker: Spring Anoraks

It’s anorak season in the TSB office.

Here’s three of our favorites.


1. Sporty Windbreak


A jacket doesn’t get much lighter than this – one thin layer of nylon to break the breeze or an unexpected drizzle.

The green color and sporty block stripe are perfect for a casual Spring outing.


Pairing it here with my go-to Spring classics: tortoise shades, chambray shirt, henley, navy chinos, Jordans.


I gave up sneakers a long time ago but I do wear my favorites from time to time, like these True Blue IIIs from 2001…

    Towni’s outfit is KILLER!

  • Ian

    Love the combination of the trousers & shoes together. The colours and different textures really work well!

    Not sure about the bracelet and watch combo though – it looks great together, but I personally would not want to risk my Montblac watch (if I had one!) being scratched by the bracelet.

    Wes is on bullet time! Will he reach the payphone before Agent Schulman catches up to him??

  • RIchard

    TB3 go with almost anything, man.

        good eye Rich

    Dan’s original spring outerwear posts really opened my eyes to anoraks as a spring staple. Great article, as always.

  • Brent Kuz

    Bought my first band collar shirt this week thanks to Wes. Towni’s jacket isn’t my style but I like the article

  • BF

    Towni’s anorak looks like a Burton Gore tex snowboard jacket I have

  • Lucas

    Wes always bring in the J’s!

    • Lucas

      ^*bringing it

  • Vikflo

    Great looks. Wes always killing it.

    Got two collarless’ in the last 6 months because of Wes and think they are awesome. Love the anoraks, wanna get one but shouldn’t the fit be a bit better?! Or is it something just to throw on and off over your fly gear underneath!?

      I like some garments, like anoraks, a little looser. It’s a casual pull-over after all.

      That said, I’d say there will be more and more “not so slim” fits happening on TSB in the near-ish future…

    Rainproof outwear and suede just don’t go. Just my opinion that’s all.

    • http://tsbmen.com Dan Trepanier

      I actually agree. I almost killed this article for that reason, but decided to run it anyway.

      It wasn’t raining when we shot this a while back…

  • Brady P

    Wes got some ups

  • Francis

    That zipped hood makes Townsend look like a ladybug. Just sayin’.

      This is true, and funny.

  • John B

    Nice post! Some pretty strong looks, although rainproof outerwear with suede shoes is a bit strange!

    • http://tsbmen.com Dan Trepanier

      It doesn’t have to be raining for an anorak. Or trench.

      Thx for reading John!

  • John Crossley

    I think we can all agree, Wes is the master of the collarless shirt.

      my man John, thanks bro!

  • rismomax

    Dan helped me discover layering with the “shacket”. Now, Wes has not only helped me appreciate the collarless shirt, but layering a collarless shirt with a collared shirt.

    Once again, thanks guys.
