Origin: [F. jaquette, dim. of jaque. See 3d Jack, n.]
A jacket is a hip- or waist-length garment for the upper body. A jacket typically has sleeves, and fastens in the front or slightly on the side. A jacket is generally lighter, tighter-fitting, and less insulating than a coat, which is outerwear. Some jackets are fashionable, while others serve as protective clothing.
Chambers 20th Century Dictionary
jak′et, n. a short coat.—adj. Jack′eted, wearing a jacket. [O. Fr. jaquette, a jacket, or sleeveless coat, a dim. of O. Fr. jaque, a coat of mail, prob. ultimately conn. with Jacques.]
