increase your babe status with a quilted jacket
There are classics, like the dessert boot, that should remain a staple in your wardrobe. Other pieces should include a good pair of jeans (which, I don't own, condemn me!), a breton shirt in a myriad of colours, a Proenza Schouler PS1 and the quilted jacket. I played around with the classics, but it's relative.
Nothing is more attractive than a man who knows how to dress in staples, appropriately. Quite often, I run into a few men donning a quilted jacket and its iterations, it could be in a vest form, a different colour or the nuances in the quilt size. About 95% of the time, the men sporting these goods are babes.
This one is by Italian brand Aspesi, known for their quintessential staples.
Now, I don't even know if they are all babes. I'm blinded by how well they put together a subdued green quilted vest layered over a plaid shirt, with slim khaki's, maybe a brown leather messenger bag and classic worn-to-shits white sneakers. Think, the creative urban dad or the 20 something. An additional accoutrement would be the fixed gear bicycle. Swooooonn.
They are important people and they have places to go.
