Ah, the classic track jacket – perfect for days when it’s a little nippy but not very cold.  It’s a must have piece in your closet for when you want to look relaxed and chill without trying too hard.  My personal preference would be to keep it vintage (or a classic, old school style) to give it that extra edge.

All the current sports clothing manufacturers make them, so pick one that best represents you and your personality.  Pick your favorite team, your favorite colors or even an era that you would like to give props to.  This is also another piece that you don’t have to spend a lot of money on (about $100 or less for a good one).

But to make it absolutely clear – we are talking about the jacket, not the entire track suit.  Save that for when you become a member from the Mafia.
