Known as an innovator for its durable weatherproof outerwear, the 40-year-old Italian clothing brand Paul & Shark (paulshark.it) counts this blouson jacket ($1,495), featuring wool sleeves coated with Teflon Fabric Protector treatment, among its latest sportswear offerings. The DuPont-made coating, which is often used in Paul & Shark’s yachting apparel, renders the fabric impenetrable to water without affecting its movement, softness, or breathability. Additionally, a heat-retaining nylon lines the jacket’s back, shoulders, and hood, and lamb’s leather fortifies its front panels and two zippered pockets. A detachable dickey and a hood provide additional protection from the elements.
