Down vests are the duck-billed platypuses of the clothing world. You know their sleeveless design evolved for some reason, but that original purpose has long since been lost in a foppish undertow. For that reason, we appreciate this Lacoste Puffer Jacket with Removable Sleeves ($325), because it appeases our stylish sensibility while still making our inner pragmatist feel like it got the last word. Sold in both navy and black varieties, its synthetic Polyamide filling can keep you toasty whether you choose to let your arms get in on the action or not.
