Your Vest Bet

Pumpkin spice. Apple picking. Foliage. And… vests? Welcome to fall in the Northeast, where you can’t walk two feet without running into an adult man—or several—proudly wearing a button-down shirt beneath a puffer vest. These vests tend to be popular among a certain type of man. (Hint: You can’t spell investment banker without “vest.”) And for that, they’ve gotten a bit of a… reputation.

These days, they’re slowly making amends, thanks in part to innovative fabrics, not-so-puffy styles, and construction that allows for easy, unrestricted movement. (Read: They won’t get in the way of your backswing.) Plus, they’re ideal for in-between temperatures and diverse weather conditions. Here’s how to make the most of them.

Straits Quilted 2-Way Zip Front Vest

Form, Meet Function 
For playing golf in nippy temps, this low-key puffer vest offers just enough warmth—but not so much that you’ll need to ditch it three swings in. The water-resistant fabric is always a bonus in iffy weather, and the included travel bag makes it easy to stash it away once you warm up.

Tahoe 2-Way Zip Front Fleece Vest

Fleece and Thank you 
Take on chilly weather with this cozy fleece vest, which looks nothing like your dad’s hand-me-down thanks to its range of playful shades. The best part, though? It’s designed for comfort: The two-way zip allows for breathing room wherever you need it, and the water-resistant fabric offers a surprising amount of stretch.

Leaderboard Pima Cotton Quarter-Zip Vest

Knit Knockout 
This ain’t your prep-school sweater vest. Rather, this clean quarter-zip vest comes in a comfy, breathable cotton knit and cuts a silhouette that can make even your rattiest white polo look good enough for the clubhouse.

Michael Reversible Climaloft Lightweight Thermal Stretch Vest

Wind Down
Truly dedicated golfers will hit the course in any weather, and a vest like this can help make that a little easier. It features Climaloft™ insulation, which uses water-resistant, windproof fibers that trap air and reduce loss of body heat even in wet conditions—without the bulk of a puffer coat.

Tidal Wind Vest Grey

Pockets on Pockets
This clever dual-sided vest pairs a weather-resistant nylon shell with a soft fleece interior to keep you cozy. And with ample pockets for keys, phones, and flasks (hey, we don’t judge), you’ll be prepared for anything.

Sherpa Vest Ivory

Feeling Sheepish
If comfort trumps all, then this sherpa vest was meant for you. The warm, soft sherpa fabric offers insulation without bulk, and it dries quickly, too, making it ideal for colder days when you still want to look sharp.
