We don’t know who first sported the colorblock motif. Probably some merchant from ancient Zhejiang messing around with tunic dye patterns. But we’re glad it’s made a comeback in current men’s style. It’s colorful without being loud, and retro without looking dated. Marine Layer has a solid track record of interpreting the colorblock pattern in extremely wearable ways. And the Vail Reversible Puffer Vest is the ideal intro to the look.
To start, it’s reversible. So if you crave the familiarity of solid colors one morning, turn the vest inside out and sport the blue-only side. But on days when you’re looking to impress, you can rock the olive, navy, and white colorblock side. The down insulation and quilted water-resistant nylon will keep your core warm and dry, while the old-is-new color block style keeps you looking sharp.
