We all know (and love to wear) jackets, and it’s our go-to piece for keeping warm in style. The term “shacket”, however, is starting to gain popularity. What’s a shacket, you ask?
It’s a classic piece toeing the line between shirt and jacket. These normally take the form of a button-down shirt made of thicker material like wool blends or fleece. In the slightly cooler months of the year, they’re great for layering without sacrificing comfort.
Check out some of our favorites which you can get online, each one a great balance of substance and value for money.
