Your New Rain Jacket Is a … Blazer?

North & Mark reimagines classic men’s outerwear

April 10, 2018 9:00 am

Dressing for the weather — especially during the most unpredictable spring in recent memory — shouldn’t mean dressing down.

That’s the theory behind North & Mark, a new brand that fuses the technical know-how of activewear with the styling cues of classic men’s outerwear.

Designed and made in New York but inspired by the windy Chicago upbringing of founder Steve Cho, N&M’s goal is to create “outerwear built for urban life.”

Meaning: city-friendly pea coats, 3-in-1 modular coats, blazers and bombers with performance benefits like water- and wind-resistance, breathability and four-way stretch. All for a very agreeable price.

And just launched this month: N&M’s spring line. Find a few of our favorites, below.

Howard Waterproof Stretch Trench
Available in khaki or black, this classic trench silhouette will keep you dry but lets your body breathe.

Union Stretch Blazer
Water- and stain-repellent fabric with a jersey lining and zip internal side pockets, plus 4-way stretch fabric so you can move about with ease.

Broadway Waterproof Overcoat
A light, unlined, wind- and waterproof overcoat with a collar snap, reversible reflective cuff and featuring a nice stretch fabric for unrestricted movement
