The barn jacket is essential for working on the farm, and they’re plenty out there to choose from. My pick is the J.Crew unisex jacket inspired from the company’s 1983 version. It’s lightweight enough so you can layer underneath (think fleece shirt), has waist pockets (great for holding a hoof pick or gloves), button closure (forget zippers!) and machine washable. My only lament is that the barn jacket doesn’t come in darker colors.
