Living here in Chicago is great. But one of the things I very much miss about the South is the ability to walk outside in a limited amount of layers without freezing my ass off. I mean, I know locals up here will tell you that it’s been a “mild” winter so far, but I’m not feeling the same way about it. I’m cold, and I can’t go outside with these temps without being dressed like this kid. So, as I was saying, I miss the weather where I could walk outside with a sweater and a vest layered over it, and be just fine. While I should be worrying about something more substantial and warm, I keep going back to shopping around for a new vest. Whether it’s a puffer, quilted or even fleece, I’m a big fan of them. Below are few of my current favorites…
Billy Reid… on sale!
Suitsupply: Looks great over or under a sport coat.
“Fratagonia“… An old college favorite.
Barbour Down Insulated Vest… How could I not include a Babour (or two, see below)?
Barbour Dunmoor… I’ve wanted this vest for quite some time now.
While they won’t keep me warm enough on their own up here, still quite perfect for me!
