The investment jacket it not something to be bought on a whim. It needs time spent on research, investigation, and some serious thought before buying a piece that serves as your dose of bear-hug when the temperature has dropped below zero. For a lot of folk, one of these jackets will go on as the go-to winter staple for years to come, to keep their kids high and dry in the winter, and like in the case of this Cabourn B7 sheepskin, your grandkids, and maybe even theirs. That’s why I decided to myself a long while back that if I’m going to put money into a mighty jacket, it’s gotta be classic. Something inspired by history, and something that’s not totally defined by trend, because they will date quickly. Below I have picked some pieces from End. Clothing that I would classify as great investment coats, parkas, and jackets. I also threw in a down parka from upcoming Korean outerwear label Bastong, who sure know what’s good in a jacket.
