Few pieces of clothing have experienced a glow-up like the track jacket. Beginning life as a purely utilitarian garment in sports, it didn’t take long before it infiltrated the world of lifestyle clothing. Once it had settled into the everyday wardrobe, it filtered through into luxury. Essentially, the humble track jacket traversed the hierarchy of clothing in around 50 years.
Nowadays, luxury track jackets are a permanent fixture in high-end collections. From Gucci to Balenciaga, each house has its own idea of what a luxury track jacket should be. If you ask Gucci, it’s a vehicle for retro exploration — neutral hues and vintage detailing aplenty. Ask Balenciaga, though, and you’ll see that the tracksuit jacket is also the ideal way to make a comment on the space — or lack thereof — between the throwaway and the refined.
That’s perhaps what has made luxury track jackets so well-loved. They're a blank slate for expression. They're versatile for the wearer, ideal to throw on when the sun dips behind a cloud, and can be styled with just about everything you throw at them. We’re firm believers in the luxury tracksuit jacket, so we rounded up 10 of the best you can shop right now.
