With colder weather on the horizon and the possibility of yet another polar vortex looming, it’s time to get your outerwear game into tip top shape. Former architect Jeff Johnson has launched a tightly edited e-commerce site devoted solely to jackets and coats for both men and women, called The Arrivals. Everything is designed in NYC and made in the U.S.A. with Italian-sourced materials, and each piece is kept at relatively sane prices while still being made from quality fabrics. The Arrivals uses the same materials as high-end designers, but is able to deliver them at a third of the price.
A sleek black poncho jacket called the Häring which retails for $245 is inspired by architect Hugo Häring’s fixation on place and condition, and is built from a weatherproof poly-spandex shell and rubberized Italian twill that’s also waterproof thanks to heat-welded seams. Our personal fave is the Rainer moto jacket, with channeled sleeves that mimic the design of Seattle’s Rainer tower. The jacket is made from Italian pebbled lamb hide and features a removable collar of fine Tuscana lamb hair. Not bad for $685, non? Of course, our favorite item happens to be the most expensive, but the good news is that everything in the collection is priced under $700. Happy shopping!
