all puffy no mace

this hip hop hit is back in a big way.

It started with the mountaineers, then made it’s way back to the future with Mcfly, and all the way to the streets as a hip hop staple. Now, by the look of dozens of designer look books, and practically every mens boutique in NY, LA and SF our favorite blue collar trend is back, bold and intended for you and me.

The down vest and jacket can run anywhere from $50 to $500 depending on the quality, cut and designer. My suggestion is to go one of two ways – hit up old navy, Gap and other low end retailers for that inexpensive basic piece to incorporate for a season or two, or go for durability, warmth and a piece that will last you a generation at places that know this style best (think North Face, Patagonia and Moncler above). Pair these bad boyes with a shirt and tie or where it open over a t-shirt and a pair of khakis. It’s truly a versatile piece that you will have in your closet for a long long time. Go for it! My picks and pics below.
