Now, I know what you’re thinking — isn’t winter a time for thick, heavy parkas and durable outerwear, not something thin and flimsy like the Grayers Edgeware Coated Cotton Moto Jacket? Well, that’s where you’re wrong, my friends. To get straight to the point, the Grayers Edgeware Moto Jacket is a surprisingly tough, versatile jacket for the season … and that’s more than good enough to make it our Style Pick of the Week. If looks can be deceiving in the world of #menswear — which they certainly can be — then it’s natural to think that the Edgeware Moto Jacket can’t stand up to frosty winter weather. But from the cotton and nylon shell to the surprisingly warm cotton lining, the Grayers Edgeware Moto Jacket packs a serious punch. I found out as much on a winter trip to Toronto, where I layered the Edgeware Coated Cotton Moto Jacket with a warm thermal (also from Grayers) — I was more than toasty as I explored the city in the winter cold. And I think it’s a piece you should certainly consider adding to your winter wardrobe rotation — much like other casual layering essentials from Grayers, including the Grayers Bayswater Fleece. Does that make it worthy of inclusion when it comes to winter style essentials? Most definitely, my friends.
Make no mistake — I’m not saying you need to trade in your thick winter parka solely for the Edgeware Coated Cotton Moto Jacket. That being said, it’s an excellent option when you want a jacket that provides mobility, sleek looks and standout layering potential. It would look excellent when paired up with a classic chambray shirt, a grey crewneck sweater and slim tan chinos; when paired with a classic winter cardigan, it’s also going to provide just enough warmth without suffocating you. The Edgeware Coated Cotton Moto Jacket is also highly functional when it comes to handling your everyday carry. Front snap pockets at the chest and hips help out with that — I found the Edgeware Coated Cotton Moto Jacket was more than ready to help me carry my essentials throughout a full day in Toronto. It’s also agreeable in terms of price, coming in at under $200 when you pick it up from our pals at Bespoke Post. So, although it’s certainly unique compared to your classic winter jacket, the Edgeware Coated Cotton Moto Jacket from Grayers is a solid, versatile option for cold-weather layering.
