Urban Cowboy and City Girl Jackets

Say howdy to our Urban Cowboy Jacket, now available in Big Cotton, 100% unmercerized cotton. This warm-weather spin on our Merino No. 5 project of the same name is a fun and flashy way to complete any look. It’s perfect to pair with cowboy boots, adds just the right amount of flare to a casual outfit, and is guaranteed to keep you cozy as the seasons change.

If you’re not a fan of fringe, don’t fret! City Girl is the same as Urban Cowboy, just without the final touch of fringe. A more subtle alternative to its cowboy counterpart, this version of the garment —with its fantastic textural variance on full display— is an instant spring staple.
