The pronunciation "chaqueta" [cha key ta] is somewhat similar to "jacket" [jay ket].

Yes, both English and Spanish borrowed the word from French.

So many words from English are very similar to their Spanish counterparts (i.e clase, aparmento, etc.) Or words relating to their counterpart (i.e dormintorio/bedroom, etc.)

Does ‘chaqueta’ refer to a specific type of jacket? I’m thinking about fabric and occasion, like the difference between a jacket, sport coat, parka, etc. What scenario are we using ‘chaqueta’ in, and when is it best to use something else?
