Good Jacket for 40-60 degrees?

I'ev been rocking the layer approach with my mesh Phoenix jacket and liner, but I'd like to get a nice warm jacket that would require long sleeves on my part, at most. Be nice if it was not hideous and could be worn around afterward, but that's just bonus points. Any suggestions?

This is what i'm wearing now. It fits your description. With the liner in or out it easily works in the temp ranges you listed. Asthetics are a personal matter but I think it looks good in Black and the limited white adds just enough visability.

I'm wearing this in red...Teknic Freestyle Textile Motorcycle Jacket :: New Enough, LTD

I switch to mesh over about 80 degrees but wore it on a couple 20 degree days commuting to work with no problems. On the cooler days, it would be nice if it were a few inches longer. The jacket that is.

Press Any Key To Continue.

I'm rockin one of those in yellow. I like the jacket pretty well, but I layer heavily on the cold days. I'm saving up for a fieldsheer adventure jacket.
