I first saw a jacket like this on one of my favorite blogs, Love Aesthetics, and it was love at first sight. I planned on making one for a while, but couldn't find a zipper long enough for the life of me. I finally decided to just cut my loses and do it with the longest zipper I could find. Considering I would probably always wear it this open regardless, I don't hate the way it turned out. It's a really easy DIY if you're comfortable with a sewing machine. It only took be about an hour to do!

And while I have your attention here's my quick two cents about menswear fashion week. All I've got to say is; daaammn I need a good wide brimmed hat!
