Over the past decades, the down jacket has found its way from the Canadian mountains via the inner cities into the wardrobes of legions of men around the planet. While they undoubtedly offer warmth and comfort, the rarely offer anything resembling style. Alexander Kraft has set out to change this deplorable fact, once again. His quilted jacket is not simply a down-filled nylon device: In fact, his water – repellant jacket is made of several layers of specialized performance material that is cut like a traditional jacket, then carefully padded and finally receives the quilted stitching for its distinctive look. However, Kraft does not stop here: He has added several luxurious yet very discreet details to the garment, including real suede (not artificial Alcantara) elbow patches and a real leather undercollar. This extraordinary all-weather garment features all the hallmarks of a tailored jacket, including angled pockets with a ticket pocket, a breast pocket, working button holes and a double vent. The material is a performance fabric that is water repellant yet breathable. It has never been easier to look stylish in unfriendly weather conditions. Ideal for travel as it packs light and, with the right attitude and accessories, could take you from a business meeting to souvenir shopping.
