The Gibson may have been devised as the perfect travel companion—it's got the passport pockets to prove it—but it's so darn sharp that we find ourselves pulling it out of the closet even when our itinerary doesn't take us much further than the corner market. That goes doubly for this new Charcoal Birdseye colorway, which boasts all of the tidy design and utility-focused detailing of the original in a burly, beautiful woolen finish that keeps the Gibson soaring above the competition.
This 13-oz wool-dominant blend is warm, substantial, and features some beautiful birdseye donegal texture. Drawing inspiration from vintage, occasion-agnostic 3-roll, 2-button military-style jackets, The Gibson features extra buttons and a removable throat latch so it can transition from casual to formal with a flick of the wrist. With a sophisticated look, a slew of handy features, and materials that let it spring to life even after a long journey in a suitcase, The Gibson is everything we'd want in a travel companion—or an everyday jacket, for that matter.
