We've had Dior shows filled with hiking gear, Arc'teryx jackets walking the runway, and hiking sneakers dominating the most hyped drops — so I don't think you need me to tell you about how outdoor gear has gotten a glow-up. And one of the fallouts from this is that fleece jackets aren't only worn by hiking dads or the bosses of tech startups, they're everywhere now.

This new-found appreciation has meant more options than ever available on the market, and some are selling out rapidly.

If you want to buy a Stüssy 8 Ball Fleece or one of Supreme's The North Face collaborations, you will have to fork out more than their retail price on the second-hand market as they originally flew off shelves. And one of the holy grails for fleece lovers worldwide, the red and white checkered design from NIGO and Louis Vuitton's LV² line, has been sold Stockx for quite a bit above $2,000.

The beloved fleece jacket has become a canvas for experimentation for streetwear heavyweights and luxury labels alike, creating menswear grails from a hiker's essential. We've browsed online to find the best brands bringing their own spin to the design and brought together our favorite fall-ready fleece jackets below.
