A reliable, dependable and rugged shirt jacket for fall and winter.

One of the best men’s shirt jackets needs to step up in the clutch, and it helps if it looks darn good while doing it.

Consider the Filson Quilted Jac-Shirt a grab-and-go-type of jacket, one you need to wear when on the trail or camping under the stars (or again, hanging out around your bonfire). And because it’s Filson, all the details are accounted for — the snap front buttons are easy to use even while wearing, say, Filson work gloves. Although the Filson Quilted Jac-Shirt is a bit pricier than your average work shirt, it’s absolutely worth it — it’s a new everyday style staple. If you end up picking it up, let me know on Twitter.
