Steven Alan's collaborations with Nike Sports Wear rarely disappoint and their new jacket/blazer combination is no exception, bringing together NSW functional elements with the designer's understated style. On top of a nicely balanced silhouette, the highly technical Ventile cotton shell features an array of solid details to keep you dry, and the button-in blazer lining traps heat to maintain an optimal core temperature.
The weatherproof, windproof and highly breathable shell is created with tightly woven, un-treated cotton, delivering serious all-weather performance from a natural product. The button-down shoulder flap pops up to reveal a hidden pocket, perfect for stashing cash or credit cards for easy access. Finishing touches like four exterior waterproof zip pockets, leather zipper pulls and fully taped silver seams look good and promise high performance and durability at the same time. The interior lining can pop out to be rocked solo but we prefer to keep it in as a bolster against the impending winter.
The Steven Alan NSW New Jacket / Blazer can be purchased online from Steven Alan for $725

10 December 2012, UPDATE: Unfortunately we were misinformed and this jacket is not a Steven Alan collaboration; it's simply an awesome NSW jacket that happens to be available for purchase at Steven Alan.
