Shopping for new clothes is cool, but you know what’s even better? Shopping for old clothes.
This B-3 Shearling Beast is just an example of the amazing pieces you can only find at vintage or second-hand shops. That is, if you know how to look. After all, thrifting is an art.
Here’s three ways to wear one of the coolest jackets I’ve found recently.
1. Business Casual Tough Guy
I love the contrast of a masculine military bomber over a shirt-and-tie “business casual” look.
This thing is unbelievably warm too. It was made for wartime pilots to operate aircraft from non-insulated cockpits. So you know this sh-t is hardbody.
If the winter wind gets crazy, zipping up and fastening the collar buckles creates a built-in scarf and lower-face shield.
I know, I’ve been featuring these tweed pants a lot, but they’re so versatile. It’s surprising how many outfits they work with.
