Sweaters are really easy to find, does anyone know any patterns for the men? I want to knit my boyfriend a jacket, so he can unzip it easily, but all I can find that are male-knits are sweaters -.-

I know, I really could designed my own. but let's face it, I'm lazy

I haven't found any online that I like. I did like the one in Last Minute Knitted Gifts. I forgot what it was called, but it's one of the last patterns in the book.

scroll down on this page; the "cambridge jacket" is pretty sharp.

I've considered making both the "LMKG" sweater and the Cambridge jacket for my guy. They both quite manly--what with the ribbing, the stand-up collar, and the big front zipper--so they have his stamp of approval.

I really like the jacket in the latest issue of Interweave Knits.  The husband actually likes it, too, which is amazing, as he usually hates knit things that look interesting enough to knit.  It's the Cambridge jacket that was already posted.

I wasn't able to really find a good pic of the one from the actual book but here's a Craftsters take on it:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=68378.0
and if you browse through the Projects from Last Minute Knitted Gifts, I know there are some in there, but it's almost 80 pages long.
