A Canadian's guide to jackets: the down vest

This is the seventh post in my 'A Canadian's guide to jacket' series. 


THE FORECAST: Sunny and showing the first signs of spring, but still chilly. 5°C

THE OCCASION: Visiting a cabane à sucre for the first maple toffee of the season

THE JACKET: down-filled quilted vest with a faux-fur lined hood

Staying warm starts with the torso and down vests are perfect for those in-between seasons days. But, rappers wearing down vests kind of ruined things for me for a few years. To bring this look into 2015, I wore it over slim-fitting layered shirts, and added tall boots and a cozy infinity scarf. In shopping for a vest, I'd suggest looking for genuine down fill, a snug fit and a detachable hood. There's no need to spend a bundle: this version came from a consignment store.
