I woke up this morning and there was a chill in the air. It was in the mid-60s (a mercury level we’ll celebrate on the other end come February), and I honestly needed an additional layer. By 9:00AM it was worthless, but all in all, it served it’s purpose. In leiu of a blazer, a quilted jacket is an excellent choice this time of year. It’s like an adult windbreaker. It provides just a little bit of warmth, and some protection from the elements. I wear an old Penfield and love it, but would love to add another to the rotation. Here’s what I’m looking at:
From top left:
1. Penfield Colwood Jacket: An excellent cut from an excellent company. The burgundy color is perfect for this fall, and the tilted pocket is a nice touch.
2. Belstaff Parkstone Jacket: This is the ‘Rolls Royce’ of quilted jackets, but it looks outstanding. Pair this with ripped jeans and cowboy boots just to prove a point.
3. Ralph Lauren Cadwell Quilted Jacket: The standard, classic cut that you’ve come to expect from Ralph Lauren. Nice touch with the collar details.
4. Barbour Liddesdale Jacket: Old faithful. You can never go wrong with the Liddesdale, but make sure you try one on before you buy. The sizing can be tricky.
5. Ralph Lauren Cadwell Quilted Jacket: The same as number three but in an awesome shade of blue.
6. Orvis Dorset Quilted Jacket: The Orvis version of the Liddesdale, but the brown corduroy collar on black looks sharp.
7. Barbour Birch Quilted Jacket: Another good looking option from Barbour, but with deep pockets.
8. Burberry Allanson Quilted Jacket: An outstanding option from Burberry; the motorcycle jacket cut is awesome. While it may look casual in the picture, this one would be easy to dress up.
9. Sashiko Quilted Cotten Coverall Jacket: From the famed Unionmade Goods shop, this is a fashion-forward option for those in dryer climates.
