While on the women’s side of things Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen have cemented their status as proper designers, their men’s line, TEXTILE Elizabeth & James, has flown somewhat under the radar. Not for long, we think, as it consistently turns out meticulously crafted essentials with slight twists. This reversible wool puffer vest is a prime example. One side of the slim puffer offers a matte tonal charcoal while the other (my preferred side), pops just enough with green and blue to make this a unique piece. A great puffer is a powerful tool in any man’s closet, yet most skew into an iridescently sheen territory. Nothing wrong with that, but always nice to subtly stand out from the crowd.
