The classic men’s windbreaker has been a perennial in men’s wardrobes, but is nearly never updated. Goldwin took that classic windbreaker look that your grandfather may have in his closet and gave it its own spin, making it more akin to a high-performance alpine jacket. The W/S Blouson has all the details of the classics: gun club checkered lining, large hand pockets accented with buttons and ribbed cuffs. But Goldwin souped it up, making it out of GORE-TEX INFINIUM, which keeps your body a comfortable temperature and dry, even while the cold wet weather persists outside. And the best part? It’s light as a feather. A zippered pocket on the left also gives the design a subtle modern twist that will be sure to turn heads.
