Workwear is a perpetual force in the world of menswear. Especially now, with luxury labels collaborating with workwear giants to get in on the action, workwear is as relevant to fashion as it has ever been. But while big luxury offers a more refined take on the category, there’s a handful of labels that give you the real deal. Fay is one of them.

For the uninitiated, Fay’s history dates back to the ‘80s, when Diego and Andrea Della Valle fell in love with the jackets worn by the American firefighters. Seeing not only the functional potential of these robust designs but also the aesthetic value in the beautiful clasped fastenings and hard-wearing fabrics, the Della Valles took over Fay which had long produced technical pieces for fishermen and firefighters.

Fast-forward to 2023, and Fay is one of the most underrated names in men’s outerwear. Having masterfully adapted the firefighter’s jacket for urban life, Fay has built up a dedicated cult following across the world, building out its range from heavyweight work jackets to an all-encompassing apparel collection. But, with that said, for most of the brand’s disciples, it’s Fay outerwear that really grabs them.

Whether you’re a returning customer or this is your introduction to Fay, be sure to check out our selection of Fay jackets below. From iconic Fay 4 Ganci pieces to new arrivals in Padded Rain Jackets and overshirts, our selection encapsulates all that there is to love about Fay outerwear.

Layering is a prime concern as we move into the transitional period. Although this lightweight down shirt jacket can work as a mid-layer until the end of winter, it can become the main event as we hit Spring and the weather improves.

The Patchwork 4 Ganci embodies the reasons why Fay is one of the most underrated names in workwear. Combining a complete mastery of craftsmanship with its patchwork construction, this jacket also retains the hard-wearing features that made it such a staple in the first place: big pockets, metal clasp fastenings, and a simple yet comfortable fit.
