Outerwear is tough. Layering is tougher. How am I supposed to look hot and put-together while all bundled up like a baby on a ski trip?
Though we’re especially fashion-inclined here, we don’t really have answers for you – but we may have a partial solution to your layering struggles with this Faribault Blanket Vest from Strauss-Malcolm. Famed blanket-makers, Faribault has been making their signature hard-wearing woolen goods for over 150 years and Strauss-Malcolm was lucky enough to snag some Navy Blanket seconds for these vests.
Reminiscent of a Patagonia fleece, the vests will keep you warm and look good under or over any number of garments. Small irregularities in these fabrics mean they can’t live their lives as blankets, but they sure work well as these handsome, minimalist vests. Add YKK zips, a storm guard, and lowered back end, and you have a supremely functional piece from a brand that clearly deserves more love and recognition.
Available for $278 from Strauss-Malcolm.
