This overshirt is winter’s hardest-working wardrobe essential

When it comes to layering you have to get it right, there is no easy ebay to layer up, look good and keep warm unless you have the right attire. So in comes the shacket, one part rugged shirt, one part lightweight  shirt/jacket, in cotton or wool it’s a layering piece that every man should own, only because there is actually nothing worse than shivering all day because you haven’t layered up enough but because a shacket looks damn good.

Every single item of clothing has been invented for a reason, but then along comes a totally obvious piece that finds its way into your wardrobe and you think, where has this been all my life. That piece is a shacket. Although technically it’s more of a shirt than a jacket, it’s probably a little heavier than a ordinary cotton shirt, but lighter than a jacket, hence you can wear it on its own over a tee, or under a jacket or a coat. A perfect piece for unpredictable weather those in-between days when the weather is unseasonably warm for winter and you decide to do a quick run to pub or supermarket, with nothing but the shacket to shield you, do the buttons up, so at least you can keep the body heat in between you and the shacket.

This jacket is hardworking and deserves to be in any guy’s wardrobe, fashion conscious or otherwise, young or old, it will suit everyone. The CPO jacket is just that, coming in with a military style with front placket buttons that are uniquely threaded through grosgrain ribbon, All important side welt pockets, front button flap utility pockets that are roomy and functional. This garment dyed jacket has a soft hand feel of canvas and is finished off with DEVIL-DOG Dungarees bandana lining inside the yolk and pocket bag.

Masculine, capable and coming in three colours, buy one in rustic coal to really amp up the outdoorsman vibes, or stick with a classic neutral colour to keep things clean and modern. We like this one alternatively styled with joggers and sneakers for an athleisure twist.

This jacket or shacket depending on how you style it, has literally no limit to the number of ways you can wear it. It’ll still deliver on its core function, which in this jacket’s case, is to make you look stylish.

Job done.
