In our eyes, buying a new jacket represents a unique investment opportunity, one that simply cannot yield the same returns with any other wardrobe piece. After all, few others can profess to be with you quite as long as your trusty jacket, especially if treated with care and respect. Get it right and you’ve got the perfect finishing piece to complete any and all of your favourite outfit ensembles; maybe even a new partner for life…
Ralph Lauren RLX Carleton Black Down Jacket
Ralph Lauren’s RLX line places a special focus on innovative garment technology, a focus that is well represented within our featured outerwear piece from the label’s AW20 collection. The standout feature here is the PERTEX® ripstop shell, which is crafted from recycled polyester, providing optimum insulation and excellent wind and water repellency. The technological intricacy of the Ralph Lauren’s RLX Carleton jacket is clearly in service of enhanced sustainability, a noteworthy ideology that has not been lost on us. But its remarkable performance isn’t the only feather in the Carleton’s cap. Tone-on-tone nylon body panels add a subtle lustre and bestow an overtly premium feel, ensuring that Ralph Lauren’s signature mark of class and style has not been sacrificed along the way. The all-black colour palette is beautifully sleek; oozing prestige while the chrome-finished RLX hardware amplifies the ultra-luxe flavour. We’ve paired ours with this Watch Dial Print Sweatshirt and Logo Sweat Pants combo for a wholly monochromatic vibe.
Moncler Grenoble Breuil Holographic Silver Down Jacket
The Moncler Grenoble Breuil jacket is the stuff of dreams for the budding ski enthusiast. Combining technical fidelity with eye-catching flair, this style is the showpiece of Moncler Grenoble’s latest menswear showcase. It comes preloaded with an array of Moncler Grenoble’s quintessential bells and whistles, including 2-layer technical nylon panels, waterproof zippers, attached jersey wrist gaiters and an ultra-lightweight membrane to really emphasise its uncompromising performance quality.
But of course what really sets it apart from the competition is its holographic silver shell, which radiates with iridescent energy under the lights. This bold feature lends a whole new dimension to the piece, allowing it to take on an entirely new personality should the appropriate situation arise. It’s like wrapping a brand new Porsche 911 in a sleek, custom wrap – you’ve got all the performance and power under the hood with the added bonus of a unique, personalised finishing touch which guarantees to turn heads while you cruise along the street.
The flexible nature of Breuil means that it’s just as suited to the après-ski party as it is the slopes; its unique combination of practicality and panache ensures that you’re wardrobe-ready for both arenas.
