Vested Interest: Fall/Winter Vests To Shop Now
As long as we can remember, we’ve loved a good vest—ever since Marty McFly hoverboarded around in his red puffer. But while the classics are still great, streetwear designers are finding new ways to make these winter toppers more fashionable than ever. Think distressed materials, tactical influences, and nifty add-ons like roomy pockets and hoods.
We’ve rounded up our top 10 fall and winter vests available in the SHOP, since arms are overrated.
Brain Dead Sherpa Tactical Vest
In retro cream and pink hues, this sherpa vest from Brain Dead takes design cues from workwear, a growing trend in street. Fleece paneling is met with a mesh back, so this style is best rocked indoors or in warmer climates.
Arc’teryx Cerium Vest
The tech-outdoorsy movement continues to dominate in streetwear, and we love turning this technical brand into a fashion statement. Based in North Vancouver, you know Arc’teryx designs are actually functional, like this vest’s zip pockets and full-front zip with chin guard. Style over a thermal or flannel button-down for warmth all winter long.
Greg Lauren Lined Puffer
It’s all in the details. Distressed styling takes this navy puffer vest to the next level. Find sewn-on patches on the front and back, laced detailing, and subtle wear on the hem. All together, the vest rocks a navy surplus style that is ready for duty this season.
Thom Browne Wool Vest
Thom Browne’s take on naval style is a bit more elevated, with wool-and-down construction, a padded silhouette, and snap-button placket. The look is a more elevated take than your typical vest, so it’s perfect with trousers and brogues.
Burberry Quilted Relaxed Vest
A Burberry vest may be an investment piece, but its classic looks will literally never go out of style. This one also gets more bang for your buck with reversible styling that shows off the designer’s signature plaid.
Fear Of God Oversized Camo Vest
Fear of God’s Prairie Ghost Camouflage Vest might just be the most street take on the gorpcore trend we’ve seen. An oversized padded silhouette, reversible styling, rubberized logo strap on the back, and dual-slit pockets make an everyday statement. You could take this iridescent camo print hunting, but we prefer to prowel the urban jungle.
Adidas Full-Zip Vest
Spring’s favorite retro running style jogs into fall with this ripstop vest. Contrast piping and a colorful zipper exudes ’90s vibes, but the perfect in-between fit is all 2020.
Moncler Fergus Purcell Parker Vest
When it comes to mixing high fashion with utility wear, Moncler did it first. The designer is still killing the aesthetic with this nylon printed Parker vest. It’s part of the brand’s collaboration with streetwear visionary Fergus Purcell.
The North Face Himalayan Vest
You can never go wrong with a North Face puffer, especially the Himalyana Synth Vest. It has heavier nylon on the shoulders for a durable construction and relaxed fit. With a timeless look, this vest would’ve looked as good in 1990 as it does today with a tee and jeans.
Greg Lauren Carhartt Vest
Greg Lauren nails the workwear aesthetic with this Recon Carhartt Vest. The distressed look feels like it has survived many a job site, with paint splatters, subtle rips, and strategic wearing. But with a hooded construction and loose fit, it’s all fashion.Shop the collection here.
