Style Pick of the Week: Relwen Bonded Pile Jacket

A simple, standard jacket? Far from it. Relwen does a nice job here with the Bonded Pile Jacket.

Lately, we’ve been all about durable, rugged and casually stylish layers here on The Style Guide. The thermostat isn’t climbing any higher these days, and that’s where the Relwen Bonded Pile Jacket comes into play. It’s the type of easygoing jacket that you should (hopefully) have plenty of in your closet, the type of piece that works well on the weekends and even as a mid-layer on a blustery morning commute. The Bonded Pile Jacket is a recent addition to the Relwen product line as sold via Huckberry, and it calls to mind the type of classic, easy-to-wear jacket that you might find yourself reaching for after a hard day on the slopes. Yes indeed, the Bonded Pile Jacket just has something about it that calls to mind decades gone by — it’s slightly vintage thanks to the charcoal nep texture, but sleek and modern at the same time. That aesthetic fits in well with how Relwen does things, from outerwear like the Quilted Patrol Jacket to pieces like, well, the Bonded Pile Jacket.  The Relwen Bonded Pile Jacket is a piece that blends warm functionality with a classic, clean aesthetic, which is good news if you want to pair it with other men’s style essentials you’ve got in your wardrobe, like an American-made Oxford and classic blue denim. Between the blend of a soft knit outer and a warm fleece interior, you’ll hardly want to take it off (especially when you see how good it looks with classic menswear staples).

You’ve seen the outside of this jacket — now, get a load of the inside.

The Relwen Bonded Pile Jacket is the sort of subtly stylish jacket that it pays to keep around for the cold months, be it an unusually brisk morning stoking the fire on your back porch or dashing out for morning coffee. Yet, the Bonded Pile Jacket has the sort of straightforward look that can work during a casual Friday, too — especially when you match it up with other staples like a slim chambray shirt and classic tan chinos. It’s got a trim-but-not-too-tight fit, all the better for feeling great and looking quite polished in the process. The knit-ribbed cuffs, hem and neck offer protection from the elements, perfect for when you want to wear the Relwen Bonded Pile Jacket as a top layer with durable chore pants and tough leather boots for a weekend park stroll. That’s but one of the places where the Bonded Pile Jacket is going to come in handy, however. I’m sure you’ll dream up plenty more #OOTD scenarios and outfits once you’ve got your hands on the Relwen Bonded Pile Jacket.
