Hey BK Fam! We want to let you in on one of the best ways to elevate your look this spring and summer. If you’re a fan of the classic denim jacket, mix up your look by trying out twill jackets instead this season. Super durable but comfortable, twill is perfect for creating any laidback look.
What Is Twill?
Twill is a ribbed type of weave that is both durable, lightweight, and absorbent. No matter what your plans are this summer your twill pieces are sure to stand up against the heat.
Spill a drink on your twill jacket? No worries! Stains on twill are considerably less noticeable than on other fabrics. This fabric is also super versatile and is great for adding comfort for a cool breezy summer night.
Bring Your Look Together with a Twill Jacket
Twill helps you to feel comfortable during in-between weather. When it’s too cold to wear no jacket but too hot to wear a puffer jacket, twill jackets are here to fill the void.
What makes twill so versatile is that it can easily be dressed up or down. If paired with a pair of trousers and dress shoes, a twill jacket can be classy. When matched with a pair of joggers and sneakers, the same jacket can be coordinated for a casual look.
Add Layers to Your Look
The versatility of twill jackets can’t be understated, especially when it comes to weather. We think twill jackets are perfect for your spring and summer looks, but you don’t have to put them away when colder weather comes.
This spring and summer, you can layer your twill jacket on top of a lightweight tee. To keep your look lightweight, try a pair of Brooklyn Cloth Fleece Shorts and your favorite pair of sandals.
When winter comes around, you can opt for even more layers. Start off with a heavier fleece hoodie with your choice of twill jacket on top for an oversized look. To keep away the cold, match the look with a pair of our Heat Seal Fleece Joggers, your favorite pair of hiking boots and you’re good to go.
The Key to Avoiding Double Denim
Don’t worry about wearing double denim again! We all know that feeling when you want to wear a denim jacket, but you are already wearing jeans. Durable and lightweight twill is a great way to have the same level of comfort and breathability without clashing with your bottoms.
One of the best things about twill is that it matches easily with almost everything. The important thing to focus on with this material is color. Like the double denim rule, it is important to vary color between pieces that you are wearing.
Though you can wear twill on both top and bottom, if you do so we don’t recommend having an exact match. We suggest varying colors or adding layers to add more dimension to your fit.

Not all twill looks the same! Switch up the same old stuff with some of our latest graphic twill jackets. With you in mind, we want to show off some of our hottest pieces to keep you looking cool this summer:
