Robert Fry, the global director of design at Mountain Hardwear, says he hopes his latest collaboration will “keep a hard-driving, fast-moving urban explorer warm, dry and protected without slowing them down or asking them to compromise style.” Though the entire ZerøGrand collection, made in collaboration with Cole Haan, encompasses everything from socks and shoes to backpacks and umbrellas, the outerwear is its must-buy gear, the stuff that will truly get you through nasty weather while you shoot across town for that important meeting.
The collection offers three options for men: the Commuter Jacket, the Trench Coat and the Motoring Coat. The Commuter Jacket is a classier, refined version of a classic down jacket, featuring down filling that repels moisture and stretch fabric that’s both breathable and waterproof. The Trench Coat and the Motoring Jacket are closely related; if you want a longer jacket with a vented back hem, go for the Trench Coat. Both feature Mountain Hardwear’s stretch fabric (which is breathable and waterproof) with elite insulation (the warmest synthetic insulation available, designed to mimic the structure of goose down). Altogether, it’s outerwear that doesn’t sacrifice style for performance. Fabrics and materials from a top mountaineering brand have never looked so good. colehaan.com
