When temperatures turn cooler we invariably reach for a quilted vest, the essential layering piece that can take you from the first chill of fall well into winter's wild weather if you're sufficiently creative about what you pair it with.
Our new favorite in that department is this perfectly calibrated PrimaLoft Quilted Vest from Lands' End, which has a bit of a traditional British equestrian look but is strictly state-of-the-art when it comes to keeping you warm.
Quite light and not too bulky, the vest nonetheless delivers the goods thanks to 100-gram PrimaLoft insulation. Over that is a water-repellent shell, the collar is lined in corduroy, and the trim is genuine leather.
Timeless Durham Olive green is the obvious choice but Classic Navy is also very natty and don't rule out Carmine Red for a sense of adventure.
Worn over a flannel shirt you've got basic protection from the chills of autumn. Add a sweater or tweed jacket and you've got weapons-grade warmth. Style doesn't get more versatile than this....
