Engineered Garments Hooded Down Vest



—01. Large drawstring hood.
—02. 90% Goose Down interior.


Almost every season there's something I see early on, most likely in lookbooks or online, that I pass over on initial examination; only to reassess my opinion when I rediscover the piece in the flesh. The first time I saw this particular vest I wasn't too taken with the hood detail, and so, not being much of a vest wearer in the first place, didn't spend too much time analyzing its appeal. I have, however, spent a moment or two reexamining it recently; and my initial stance is slowly beginning to waver. Although I keep visualizing both outfits and opportunities I might have for the vest itself, I probably won't ever make up my mind which colour I prefer; which luckily for me also means I won't ever have to take back all those misguided things I might have once said.

—Available at Garbstore and Oi Polloi

Nice post and the interesting (interesting for people like me who also dwell on such trivial things) commentary, written with a sense of humour which is usually largely absent in Inventory. Vest-wise, I'm also turned off by the hood but I too could be convinced.

I know the internet seems to disagree with me, but the down body vest is way better/more interesting. Don't get me wrong this one is quite nice in its own right, but the former is a little more out of the ordinary, and would make for better pairings. Black hoodie/olive Down body vest/grey '04 duffle coat with a good sturdy boot for example.
