bridge & burn: a castle jacket giveaway

November 27, 2012

Over the long weekend, James and I enjoyed daily walks along the beach in my hometown. I don’t think I’ll ever tire of the way the wintertime sun shines golden on the marsh grass and sun-bleached driftwood. More importantly, these walks were the perfect antidote to all the lazing around we did in front of the fireplace. On this particular weekend, I had the good fortune of sporting the castle jacket from one of my sponsors, Portland, Oregon-based Bridge & Burn. I don’t often wax poetic about clothes, but this jacket is pretty much perfect. It comes with a hood and pouch pockets to make it a proper fit for adventuring, but it’s sleek enough to wear in the city without feeling frumpy. The cheery red striped lining means that I could layer on a sweater without things getting all bunched up. Maybe best of all, there’s plenty of room to fill two pockets with slipper shells and still have a spot to keep my hands warm.

    Ah, I've been looking for a jacket exactly like that!

    I'd go for the Quin waxed cotton charcoal — I think it would be perfect for adventuring around Norway as it's wind & waterproof not to mention the versatility it would give on our weekends traveling Europe!

    Love, love, love!

      Jay, that sounds lovely and I agree that a Bridge & Burn jacket would be perfect for bopping around Europe! Unfortunately, a reminder that we needed to limit this giveaway to readers in the US and Canada only! Thanks for understanding!

      Yes, I saw that but should I be so lucky to win, I'd send it to my parents in Canada… if that is ok?

    Ahhh, a nice weekend getaway jacket. The Waxed Erie Moss or Wool Erie Gray would be perfect and not too formal for traipsing around town on a weekend while running errands. I did have an adventure seeing my boyfriend's parents in (small-town) Ohio this past weekend and I felt too formal in my wool toggle pea coat. I am almost sick of that thing – I need something else!!!

    Ooo, I have some items from Bridge & Burn on my Christmas wish list! (I hope Santa is extra kind to me this year.) Love the Castle jacket.

    Every winter after the first snow of the year, my dad had a ritual of shoving us out the front door in our bare feet to take one ceremonial lap around the house. That's right: a lap around the house, in the snow, barefoot. Coats were allowed though. I'd love to take the Castle jacket for a spin around the house, barefoot — although we are expecting our first snow any minute!

    The Wool Erie Grey coat is lovely, but I can't help but be convinced by your descriptions that the Castle Coat in Olive is just perfect. I recently returned from a honeymoon in Ireland and jacket like this would have been a wonderful traveling accessory! Perhaps the next time I venture North to visit my grandmother in New England, I'll have to invest in this sort of blustery castle coat. :)

    The Wool Erie Gray jacket would be my ultimate pick! The beautiful gray, that will go with anything and just heavy enough. I would love to take the jacket through a hike in the mountains on a cold day in Tennessee.

    Thank you so much for this opportunity!

  • Reply Ashley November 27, 2012 at 2:08 pm

    I've never heard of Bridge & Burn before, but the olive castle jacket looks perfect for the trip that I have planned early in the new year to Portland! We are planning on doing some hiking and visiting some breweries and it looks like it would keep me toasty and dry! Thanks for the opportunity to win this.

    That is a gorgeous coat that you're wearing!!!
    Loving all their coats, but I think I'm going to have to pick the Waxed Erie Moss. It being wind and water resistant beats out the Wool Erie Grey by a hair.

    Both are gorgeous though! Thanks for hosting!

    that IS a fine jacket, and you look lovely in it. had i a castle of my own, i think i'd wear it to dip my toe in the atlantic and the pacific oceans within a day (something i've been meaning to do for years and have been putting off, since the flight between them gives one such a case of The Naps). for a farewell beach bonfire with my sisters in laguna, a midnight plane back home to new york from long beach, and coffee and a chilly morning at the rockaways – perfect.

    I love the simple sophistication and utility of the Castle jacket. It would be a perfect outer layer for my dream road trip up the Northern California coast – starting at Point Reyes to Tomales Bay, then west through Healdsburg wine country and finally north to hike the Redwoods.

    i love the simplicity of the castle jacket and the quin navy waxed cotton jacket isn't so bad either. living in florida, i don't get the opportunity to wear jackets like these too often. however, at the end of december and during the month of january it does get chilly. on those days, early in the morning, when it's still foggy i love to take walks along the beach with my camera in hand. the castle jacket would be perfect for it with a big scarf around my neck as well.

My husband and I travel back and forth between Colorado, the east coast of Canada, and northern Italy. Every place we find ourselves, we search out the wilderness; forests, shores and mountains. This coat would be a wonderful (and attractive!) piece to keep me toasty as I go from the city streets into the hills.

    The castle jacket is just the perfect amount of rugged. I studied abroad my junior year along the coast of Northern Ireland and can only picture myself wandering around the countryside wearing it. The greatest adventure would be to go back there and create layers on layers of Irish adventures.

I know that I will be coming home with a pocket full of "just the coolest rocks ever", acorns so we can grow huge trees in the backyard for summer shade (this make take awhile LOL!)and tonz of leaves that we can put between wax paper and save forever. Oh and it has a pocket for my camera/cell, a bottle of water and my KEYS that I lost last time we went on an adventure! :/

    Where the coat goes, I know that 4 wee ones and the Eskie….will make my day brigher.

    I'm about to do a semester abroad in the rainy but beautiful city of Leeds, UK so I would wear this to school, out exploring old ruined castles and sitting in pubs, watching the rain pour down. For school I would pair it with my ancient leather satchel that my dad brought back from India so many years ago, and the pockets would be stuffed with pencils, pens and maybe a calculator. For my weekends spent adventuring around the countryside, I would feel like a native Britonian except I'd actually be warm and the large pockets would be perfect for storing meat pies to keep my hands toasty on the walk home from the pub. In every way this would be a lovely addition to my upcoming English adventure!

    The Bridge and Burn Castle Olive jacket looks perfect for layering and stylish simple enough to wear almost every day, which means I could wear it for three whole seasons. Another nice feature I noticed, it's sleeves are slightly shorter than most jackets, which will make for a better fit. Sporty and stylish!

    I would love the castle jacket because my friends and I go on adventures in DC almost every weekend. I don't own a coat because I got rid of my feather filled coat when I became a vegan last year. Since it is getting a bit chilly, a hoodie is not enough for our long walks around the city. It is also hard to find a jacket that looks nice, is vegan, and can actually keep you warm!

    Maybe I'll brave the rain and go for a stroll (or a swim). I think it would be nice. I used to leave the windows open on rainy nights but, living near a busy street, I haven't really gotten to appreciate the sound of the rain lately. Or perhaps after the storm that's supposed to be coming passes, I'll squeeze in one last autumn hike. I've been dying to go hike up at twilight and see the city lights and then stargaze for a bit, but my friends have been terrified of the mountain lion sightings and then real life – school life things got in the way. I've been searching for just this type of jacket! And what a lovely name! But I shan't linger. It's just out of my budget.

    Cheers.

    Would blend in really well in the evergreens in the adirondacks and would incidentally keep me warm and dry in the rockaways this weekend for relief work. =] Great giveaway! Might just give this to someone over there too.

    I would definitely wear this jacket on a fall hike through my Canadian woods. It's the perfect season when all the leaves are turning, and who knows, maybe that handsome model from the Bridge & Burn website would care to join me for some yummy apple cider.

    Thanks for the chance to win, this is a lovely jacket that would be an excellent and much needed addition to my wardrobe! I love that it's layering friendly because you never know when the weather will take an unexpected turn.

It would also be a great addition for my trip to blustery New Orleans to help my lovely friend writing a dissertation on Southern Food Culture. All those pockets would be perfect for outdoor markets!

    I'd totally love this jacket or the Quin Waxed in Navy. I'd wear it mainly on my college campus in Western PA but it would be great for hikes and camping trips too! Lots of adventures seem possible with these :) The a waxed cotton one would be great for the rainy and slushy weather we often get in Grove City and I don't have a fashionable, functional and warm rain jacket yet.

    I love this jacket! The striped lining makes me smile. The perfect adventure for those big pockets full of treats and toys (yellow tennis balls are essential) is long walk with my two best canine friends along the lake front here in Chicago. We could let the wind ruffle our hair/fur and the waves tickle our toes. Best of all, as I don't have cool brindle fur, I would look just as stylish as my friends and be warm.

    What a beauty of a multi-purpose jacket:

    A Castle on my back,
    in a lovely green or black,
    Keeps me cozy in the rain.
    I'd wear it to my garden and back again.

    In the evening with my sweet,
    I'd wander up the street,
    with pockets and a hood, keeping in the heat.

    Here's to adventures, little and big, every day.

    As a frequent traveller for academic conferences, and a lover of the outdoors, finding a jacket that is able to transition from the mountains, to the beach, to the city has been extremely difficult. However, the castle jacket looks absolutely stunning – and would undoubtedly fix the currently predicament I am having, which is the need to pack multiple jackets! I could see myself wearing this anywhere to classes in Toronto, to hikes or strolls along the beach in my hometown of Vancouver. I certainly wish that I had the opportunity to bring this jacket on my upcoming trip to New Zealand for an academic conference! I need something that I can wear to the University, in the city and on hikes without feeling too out of place.

    The jacket looks wonderful on you! Thanks for the amazing opportunity to win one!

    Bridge & Burn has a lovely collection. Looks so comfy yet casually fashionable. Browsing through their website there were three items that caught my attention the most: Bobby Shorts Navy, Wool Erie Grey, and Castle Black.

    As per my adventure, I always wanted to spend a day pretending to be a tourist in NYC. I probably wouldn't be able to pull it off in my classic trench coat that looks too professional. But I would embark on my adventure in the castle jacket, with my DSLR camera, and a group of crazy people who like an occasional prank.

    P.S.Thank you for featuring the giveaway, Erin.
