When autumn comes, it is important to provide a mid-season jacket, it is not cold enough for the big jackets and not warm enough to strut around in a t-shirt, nevertheless the number of jackets for men is multiple we will see together different models so you can find your happiness.

The overshirt

The overshirt has only recently reappeared in men's fashion, indeed it is a versatile piece that is between the shirt a little too rigid work and the t-shirt that is very casual.

The birth of this one remains unclear, but several theories on the overshirt have made their appearance. For some, the overshirt first appeared in the 1930s when the U.S. Navy made the first CPO (Chief Petty Officer) wear it. It was a thick shirt with a breast pocket. We know this date because the bargain hunters of the time managed to recover it from military surplus. For others, its appearance is more recent and dates from 1980 and would come from BDU (Battle Dress Uniform) used by the U.S. Army at that time.

The vest 

The vest is of French origin and was introduced in England. In 1666, contrary to the French fashion of the shirt, King Charles II Stuart decided to introduce the "waistcoat", English term still used to designate the vest. A historic vest worn by aristocrats was a knee-length jacket usually worn with a coat of the same length as the pants. Today, the vest is either worn with a suit or a streetwear item that breaks the codes of the vest as we know it and can be worn in a very versatile way.

The cardigan

Worn by French and English fishermen since the 17th century, the cardigan was handed down by James Thomas Brudenell, Earl of Cardigan, who became a hero after the legendary attack on the Battle of Balaclava (Ukraine) in 1854. He gave his name to the buttoned vest he wore. A cardigan with this noble attribute enters high society. In the 1920s, Coco Chanel asserts its elegance by associating it with the suit. And 60 years later, Agnès b. Deny them by equipping it with snaps and sporty materials.

The K-way

Its small English-sounding name often makes us forget its Ch'ti origins. The brightly colored nylon fanny pack that turns into a windbreaker was invented by Léon-Claude Duhamel, son of a textile craftsman from Nord-Pas-de-Calais. Thus, red, yellow, blue and green mixed in the monotonous wardrobe of the French, who had not yet decided on the boldness and freedom of the 60s.

Une révolution du code et des mentalités était en cours, et K-Way y contribuait sans le vouloir. Des vêtements modernes emblématiques qui étaient à la fois vénérés et détestés dans les cours d'école des années 1970 et 1980. Pièce de collection avec son capuchon tricolore, le K-Way a fini par disparaître de France lorsqu'il est entré dans le dictionnaire aux côtés du Bic et du Scotch.

Aujourd'hui, le K-way revient au-devant de la scène avec des collaborations comme avec comme des garçons que vous pouvez retrouver dans notre shop et qui en fait un élément essentiel du style streetwear.
