We may be rushing the season a bit, but consider this a public service announcement: This fall, you'll be seeing a lot of quilted jackets and if you want to score a good one, you'd better buy early. And really, what's not to love? Combine the warmth of down insulation with the easy wearability of your favorite shirt jacket, and you've got a sporty piece of outerwear that's as practical as it is stylish. Lightweight but substantial, they work in nearly any environment and when the beautiful, albeit fleeting, cool days make way to cold, bitter evenings, they make for ideal layering pieces. From Creep's military styling and Levi's western details to an update on Barbour's classic racing jacket, they're one of the most practical investments you can make for the coming autumn.
