If my own never-ending quest for the perfect winter wardrobe has proven anything, it’s that a jacket cool enough you’ll actually want to wear it yet warm enough to do the trick is hard to come by. (Separate the two, and the options are endless, by the way.) Nonetheless, there’s one jacket that seems to quite effortlessly marry these two qualities: Acne Studios’ oversize shearling motorcycle jacket, which goes by the name Velocite.
While the style has been around for years (here’s Rihanna wearing it in 2012), proof of its superiority actually lies in the fact that countless fashion insiders continue to wear it season after season in a world where most items’ spotlights last about as long as fresh produce. Not only that, but despite a price tag north of $2K, the versatile statement piece is sold out or close to it on most e-commerce sites—showing that it’s only getting more desirable. Lucky for you, today we’ve not only rounded up the best inspiration for how to wear the Velocite but also found where you can still buy it and the best lower-priced shearling moto options.
