Quilted Vests for Men
Zip Up These Quilted Vests That Are Anything But Preppy
What does the head of a Fortune 500 company and a punk rock enthusiast have in common? Quilted vests. Once a cornerstone of the quintessential preppy uniform, quilted vests have migrated from the closets of the bookish and collegiate to those of gentlemen from all walks of life.
From the preppy city dweller to the punk rocker, here’s a quilted vest to satisfy every man:
For the City Dweller
You live for bright lights, bustling streets and big buildings. For the guy who lives where no one ever sleeps, a bright-colored quilted vest paired with a thick sweater and infinity scarf is what you need to take on the urban jungle.
For the Jogger
Who says you can’t look good while working up a sweat? Flaunt your sporty agility in a quilted vest made to withstand the elements as you breeze through your local park or to parts unknown. Whatever awaits you, a vest with extra padding has got your back.
For the CEO
You’re the head honcho at an insanely successful company you’ve built from the ground up. Now you have to look the part. Blend right into your corporate setting in a sleek quilted vest that’s the same color as what makes the world go round: money. Complement the green vest with a gray long-sleeve shirt and a light-blue collared shirt peeking out from underneath.
For the Punk Rocker
If you celebrate all things spiked, studded and black, then a tough-looking vest with hardcore accents is waiting for you. Play it up with a black vest accented by a bold silver zipper, skinny jeans and your steely gaze.
It’s never too late to swap your plain old vest for a quilted one. Quilted vests can be a hip and light-hearted alternative to more common types like fleece or leather.
