We all need a jacket that goes with everything. The one you can throw over jeans and a tee, slacks and a sweater, a simple dress. You know, that jacket you can pack on just about any trip, without having to fuss over whether it gets wrinkled or worry about it being too heavy and cumbersome to bring. Well, my friends, this simple little puffer jacket from Madewell is the answer to your prayers. Not only is it lightweight, warm and insulated with 100 per cent recycled content (that’s 6 water bottles, in case you were wondering), it also folds up into a travel pillow. Yes, that’s right. A travel pillow. Instead of lugging one around in your carry-on, you can roll up your jacket with ease, sling it around your neck, and watch your seatmate look over at you with envy.
The jacket comes in four different colours, so you can pick the perfect shade for you. There’s military surplus (an army green), sweet dahlia (a soft peachy rose), southern sun (a mustard yellow) and for those of you not into colour, no worries, it also comes in a true black.
At $183, it’s not the cheapest of coats, but the good news is that Madewell offers free delivery to Canada for all orders over $175. So no extra shipping costs to worry about. What you do need to worry about, however, is picking out the colour they’re going to like best. (And trying not to buy one for yourself.) Happy shopping.
