At some point, in the coldest weeks of the year — which is right about now — a man must concede defeat and pile himself into a winter jacket.
But no amount of warmth is worth looking like a puffy Michelin-tire man.
So, we recommend the trim and elegant silhouette of the Greenland No. 1 Down Jacket from Sweden’s own Fjällräven, which just opened in Wicker Park.
You may have seen their little backpacks slung around town.
Which, admittedly, are cute.
But nah, you can’t do cute.
You need durable G-1000 waxed cotton. Down-filled. Snug hood. Windproof and waterproof. Clean look, tailored fit.
Which looks good whether you’re bellied up at the bar or shoveling your car outta the snow.
S’all a man can ask for.
A few more items we endorse:
- The Övik Winter Jacket: A fleece-lined option for this winter.
- Duffel No. 4: A rugged travel companion that can take a licking.
- The Sarek Knit Sweater: Classic hunting sweater in lambswool. Very cozy.
Get toasty, friends.
