With seasonal changes come seasonal trends, and new layering options are popping up left and right. Whether you love it or hate it, recent capsules have seen the resurrection of something a little more locked and loaded than the rest: the utility vest.
Brands such as The North Face and Carhartt WIP have long shown us that workwear can be both functional and fashionable, and luxury labels have now followed their lead, catapulting the trend from one adored by fashion’s most in-the-know to the mainstream.
The likes of Nike, Junya Watanabe, A-COLD-WALL*, and even Gucci and Louis Vuitton have released their own takes on this pocket-filled utility layer. To make your life easier, we’ve selected our favorite tactical vests currently available online, coming in all cuts, sizes, and a number of colors. Starting at just $54 and rising to the notably more designer price of $3,350, there’s something in this vest selection for everyone.
