I wanted to share a micro-trend that is making its way onto the backs of the stylish…
The Quilted Shirt/Jacket aka The Quilted Shacket.
Although this made its first appearance a couple of years ago, as with most trends, it needs time to develop its own mark.
It is a perfect A/W piece either as outerwear on a chilly Autumn morning or a cosy quilted layer in Winter. Easy to wear & easy to incorporate into a variety of outfits it is perfect as the temperate starts to drop & the number of layers needed increases.
Look for snap closes and chest pockets. Corduroy trim and contract collars.
Personally I find it’s a great way of making a dapper outfit more relaxed, which means I get to be immaculately dressed underneath and still retain an air of cool on top. I’m a fan of a juxtaposition, so my quilted shirt from Barbour is absolutely perfect. Other brands with Shackets worth a closer look are Mark McNairy as pictured above and J.Crew below.
So there you have it, The Quilted Shirt/Jacket.
