Sure, we could (and do) talk endlessly about the clothes we love, but for our new column Line Item, we’ll be asking some of our favorite designers to tell us what they think about the best pieces from their newest collections. Today, designer Andrew Hague tells us about the Soft Core Wool Vest from Outlier’s fall collection.
I love the feeling of freedom an insulated vest gives—you just need to keep your core warm, so your arms can be active and mobile. The one we did here at Outlier is lined in merino jersey so it’s like wearing a very small blanket, and we used Primaloft insulation which keeps it incredibly light. Mostly though, I love the shape of the shoulder—it’s a little more narrow than average which keeps the whole look trim, especially when worn over a bulky sweater or sportcoat.
