If you’ve been searching for one of the best winter layers and you haven’t yet found one, now is the right time to stock up on, well, one of the best shirt jackets for men. It’s mid-December, after all, and it’s time to amp up that outerwear rotation in a big way. That doesn’t mean reverting to a bulky parka just yet, though. And that’s why we’re here, of course, telling you all about the best men’s shirt jacket. It’s within your reach, and the Todd Snyder Italian Quilted Shirt Jacket is the proper pick for today, this weekend and the rest of winter.
It’s the sort of rugged wardrobe upgrade that the Iowa-born designer specializes in, be it finding a way to make the humble chambray shirt into the best men’s chambray shirt, or turning the classic waxed trucker jacket into one of the best men’s jackets, period. It’s true, and if you’ve never shopped Todd Snyder, then right now is actually an ideal time to start. But back to what makes the Todd Snyder Italian Quilted Shirt Jacket so exceptional. It all starts with, naturally, the fabric, which is a donegal wool blend available in a plethora of rich colors (more on that in a second).
In short, the Todd Snyder Italian Quilted Shirt Jacket is the perfect blend of premium style and materials, plus the rugged functionality you need in a winter layer. It’s lined with Italian nylon and features a poly filling, all the better for added warmth on the go. But it’s the exterior wool-blend fabric that really sets the Todd Snyder Italian Quilted Shirt Jacket from the pack, making this shirt jacket more similar to a traditional winter blazer than an overly technical shirt jacket. It’s the Grey Donegal wool option that should prove most versatile when you want to score a shirt jacket (or “shacket”) you can dress up with tailored charcoal wool trousers, perhaps atop a Todd Snyder turtleneck for an eye-catching blend of high-low style. Yes indeed, this quilted shirt jacket is both technically savvy and stylish in equal measure. It could just be your new favorite winter layer, whether worn with a thermal shirt, a rugged henley or an Oxford shirt.
Beyond just the dependable style of the Todd Snyder Italian Quilted Shirt Jacket‘s Grey Donegal option, it’s also available in the eye-catching Tartan Plaid as shown above. But if you want the most bang for your buck (this shacket retails for $598 at Todd Snyder), then Grey Donegal is your best bet. Either way, the Todd Snyder Italian Quilted Shirt Jacket is one of the coolest, most reliable and rugged layers on the market. Happy shopping, my friends.
