1. Junya Watanabe Oxford Check Vest
A crass-meets-class utility piece that blends the two sides of the vest game into one wild statement. Need to bring a few camera lenses to a party? Pockets. Fly fishing at 6, but a dog show at 7? Oxford check. While most short jackets claim “versatility,” there are few that do it with such flair.

If you're a Tupac fan, this vest might be the best for you! This black vest is easy to wear with a lot of pockets and light grey embroidery. If you are planning to attend a lot of festivals this year, this key piece is a must! PS: Seventeenthebrand is dropping a new collection soon!
3. C2H4 Reversible User Interface
C2H4 Reversible User Interface Cords Down Vest $ 294
the Reversible User Interface is an overtly-adjustable down vest overloaded with cord pulls. From the arm holes to the pocket flaps, nearly every part can be modified for fit. And yes, as the name implies, even the color of the vest can be changed. On one side is tonal grey nylon; on the other, an electrifying red-blue circuit print.

NikeLab AAE 2.0 Vest Rust Pink $209

Short for “Advanced Apparel Exploration,” the first AAE collection (known as “1.0”) debuted with such innovations as The Short Sleeve Top, a shirt made from a single strand of thread. Now, in this season’s AAE 2.0, the Swoosh’s Skunk Works return. And they’ve brought a pink vest.
