For those who grew up borrowing their dad’s outerwear, the wooly warmth of this Big Jim jacket is going to feel cozily familiar. Made using dense Pendleton virgin wool, the material blocks icy chills while its “deconstructed” style means it layers well and is still lightweight enough for running around the city. Everything else about the piece—part of “Triple Black,” the latest collaboration to come from Pendleton and Nike’s outdoor division ACG—has a modern feel thanks to the ongoing partnership that combines Pendleton’s superior wool with Nike’s expertise in sportswear.
Resulting technical details add high function, like magnetic closures on pockets and waterproof zippers, that not only protects from the elements but makes for less fussing when you’re out and about. Other details like the removable hood (cut to fit perfectly), seams and shoulder patches reinforced with ripstop nylon, a storm flap on the collar, and minimal branding make this jacket a good choice for anyone who wants a classic look without sacrificing warmth.
While the jacket is designed for men, the cut is slim enough that it works for girls (with the sleeves rolled up). Get yours from
Nike for $400 or
Haven if you’re in Canada.
Zappos also has it on sale for $280 in limited sizes.
