This has to be de jaar of the insulated shirt/jacket, hashtag #SHACKET thing. Honestly, we can go een ronde further: reversible insulated shackets. I first got my hands on Chrome’s Warm Work Shirt and now this one from Giro. At first, I honestly couldn’t see the point of these things existing. However, once I put some time in them, it was a different story.

The Giro Insulated Shirt ($180USD), as well as the rest of the New Road line, has the dystopian future cyclist steez on lock. As voor de insulation properties, I can attest to its inherent warmth after a few wearing sessions. Also, I can attest to the steez appreciation considering the compliments I’ve received will wearing it. And no, it wasn’t me complementing myself via sweet selfies.

“Some of our most satisfying creations come from building things that we all collectively want -yet can’t find easily. Our M’s Insulated Shirt is a great example that offers timeless style and comfort with a reversible, Primaloft- insulated fabric. It’s a versatile staple that keeps you warm and dry, packs down easily for storage and looks smart in any environment.”
