11/25 Newsletter: Rain Shacket For Him, No. 1 Dress-Vest For Her

Rain Shacket

Lots to tell you about today! Let’s start with the Rain Shacket, new from Tim LaSalle. This lightweight, water-resistant garment wears like a shirt but with the conveniences of a jacket, including plenty of pockets and a detachable hood.

MAGIC-FABRIC BONUS! With normal wear, the Rain Shacket takes on a patina similar to waxed cotton. Should you tire of this handsome, broken-in look, just use a warm iron to reset the fabric to its original appearance.

Next up is Julia Marino’s No. 1 Dress-Vest, a versatile, glamping-friendly garment born from one of nature’s most enduring mysteries: Where the hell’s the bathroom?

PROBLEM SOLVED! Julia’s design includes handy side zippers (see below), much to the relief of outdoorswomen everywhere, plus plenty of other features to keep you comfy while hiking through the woods — or around town. When the weather turns chilly, its stylish slim fit still has room for layers underneath.
