Presumably inspired by vintage military designs but also absolutely inspired by pockets—which, to be clear, is a good thing—Eastlogue’s latest generously-pocketed offering will make you not care that it’s far too cold to wear it as an outer layer.
A winter-ready take on their classic Traveler Vest, the Korean brand got all Patagonia with this iteration and employed a light brown polyester fleece for the outer shell, while using an olive-colored nylon for the lining and pockets.
Speaking of pockets, this one has them. All of them. It’s almost like it started collecting pockets and then things got out of hand but instead of listening to its friends’ concerns, it ignored all that noise and just really leaned into the hobby.
(Again, to be clear, this is a good thing for us. Just not for this vest’s social life, apparently. Smh. Your social life, however, will probably improve with the addition of this. Just saying. Onward.)
Elsewhere, it has a snap-button front placket, a V-shaped neckline and a single leather zipper tab for good measure.
