Sherpa fleece was first developed in Massachusetts in 1979 as a synthetic alternative to shearling that’s lighter, stronger and quicker to dry than the original. We searched the world over for the best fleece we could find, and found it at an Italian mill. As wonderfully warm as it is handsome, it’s the foundation for a piece that should be a core style in anyone’s wardrobe. The design details — a spade chest pocket with zipper, contrast trim and binding to cinch in the hem and cuffs — offer a modern spin on vintage mountaineering gear. With a generous pullover fit made for easy layering and two easy-to-wear colors, it’s bound to become your new winter staple.
