The Zip Liner Jacket in Grey/Charcoal Wool Fleece from Universal Works encapsulates that special kind of “sophisticated ruggedness” that we at Heddels often promote. Why? Because it stands the test of time and looks darn good in the process. How is this rugged and sophisticated at the same time? Let me tell ya.
First off, it’s a liner, so there’s a definite military influence here. But, when you cut a liner from a 65% Wool 35% Poly plaid-check fleece blend like this, you end up with something more elevated and refined than what you might find in your local military surplus store. There’s nothing wrong with your OD green liner, no, but is it as versatile as this insane fabric can be? Let us know in the comments.
This statement piece of outerwear (that can most certainly be worn as an inner-layer) is made in Europe, comes complete with a curved V-Neck collar, taped collar, hem, and cuffs, two angled patch pockets at the waist, and a snazzy zip-pull on the two-way zip closure.
