There are vintage Patagonia Retro X Fleece jackets going for $700 on eBay; similar styles are live on The RealReal, as are other cozy pullovers from recreational brands like The North Face. But you don't have to spend half your rent money or raid your wilderness-loving uncle's closet for an outdoorsy relic. Instead, you can find one perfectly suited to your needs — be it an easily packable option or an animal print topper.
Both high and low labels are championing fuzzy fall zip-ups rooted in the crunchy granola aesthetic of dads who resole their Birkenstocks. & Other Stories makes a relaxed-fit utilitarian style for $150; Madewell added lavender touches to a heritage sherpa fleece by Penfield; and Snow Peak, an outdoor brand from Japan, offers a minimalist pullover in a campfire rust shade.
Sandy Liang — the queen of covetable fleeces — has a cool camouflage one, and Obey is selling an inviting plush leopard-print anorak. For those less interested in patterns, House Of Sunny and Donni make easy-to-wear colorblocked pullovers.
