RL Puffer Hunting Vest

I tried to put it out of my mind, but I can't resist. There's a lot going on with this hunting vest by Ralph Lauren.  But I mean that in a good way. It has juuuuuust the right combination of 2 trends currently on the radar right now- the hunting jacket/vest and down-filled vesting.  Here's the pro's for me:

  • Not too puffy and a slim fit despite the quilting and "heavier" details like the field pockets.

  • The use of materials- cotton quilting, corduroy accents, leather shoulder patch and neck roll strap- are complimentary.


  • The absolutely fantastic plaid lining (I think Mr. Wastler from all plaidout would approve.)  

The  Bottom Line: The choice of colors in high and low browns and tans (combined with the mix of materials) really play nicely together in a great Fall layer.

Wasn't too sure about the vest until I saw the leather shoulder detail up close. omg. Amazing. This is a great piece!

Do you think that the plaid lining boxes it in to a strictly seasonal piece? I feel like it would be a great cold-spring-day layering piece too, but maybe the plaid wouldn't work...

Oh, I definitely think it's a seasonal piece. Fortunately, 'tis the season!
