Quilted Jacket Luxe Trend: Quilted Jackets

The snow has already graced the streets of many cities around the country and the winter clothing season has officially begun.  One of the key trends in men’s fashion this Autumn and Winter season is the Quilted Jacket.  The quilted jacket of today has taken inspiration from the aristocratic hunters of the English countryside and combined it with a more athletic fit that has become a staple of men’s clothing.  Working off the classic English retailer Barbour huntsmen quilted jacket, many luxe retail versions have found their way into men’s Fall and Winter fashions.  Here is a line-up of designers who have latched onto this trend with a dash of American prep mixed into their masculine quilted version.  Here’s a LuxuriousPROTOTYPE Editor’s sampling of quilted outerwear that can be great additions to your winter wardrobe.

Barbour is a classic English clothier that has sold this style of jacket for many decades.  They have the most variety, many with a nautical/military theme or a dash of 60’s Hollywood.

Hugo Boss designed a puffer version that is definitely all Boss with that German utilitarianism.  It is much more sporty and casual than some of the other jackets that we’ve featured.

Belstaff, an old rival of  Barbour, has been transformed into an edgy English counterpart with some sleek quilted jackets that are flattering for the Gen-Y set.  Although sleek in fit, these jackets are both office appropriate, as well as weekend wear for your Whole Foods shopping trips.

Which Is Your Favorite?
