If you’ve been reading The Style Guide lately, then you know that fall is well and truly in the air — and of course, you’re probably feeling a bit antsy when it comes to picking up plenty of rugged fall gear, ehh? Meet the next addition to your fall style wish list: The Howler Brothers Lightning Quilted Shirt Jacket, part of the lauded Huckberry x Howler Brothers North Coast Collection. It’s a truly rugged piece of outerwear that also happens to rank high on any list of the best men’s shirt jackets. This essential fall layer can back it up, though — and then some. When it comes down to it, the Howler Brothers Lightning Quilted Shirt Jacket represents the best of the best — it’s an exclusive to Huckberry, as mentioned above, so that means it’s got the chops in terms of rugged, dependable gear. Case in point: This tough shirt jacket features a water and abrasion-resistant ripstop shell, all the better to layer up for a park stroll or an early morning out on the road. PrimaLoft filling also offers excellent warmth without being too bulky — that’s a positive, right? Right. In short, it’s exactly what you’d expect (in a great way) from two brands who make their homes on the West Coast.
There’s no question that the Howler Brothers Lightning Quilted Shirt Jacket is going to come in mighty handy as we move toward fall, especially given that it’s uniquely easy to layer. And how exactly should you layer it? Well, any which way you want — but especially with a thermal henley and tough chore pants, or perhaps atop a chambray shirt and chinos for style that’s a bit more city-ready. The point is, the Howler Brothers Lightning Quilted Shirt Jacket channels the best of both brands, with a look that’s sleek enough to wear to your favorite brewery, and yet durable enough to wear on a fall camping trip. Touches like a printed interior lining set this apart, as do dual side hand pockets for plenty of everyday carry potential.
