FrontRunners: On the Mark

  • Brooks Brothers and Beretta Cordura Jacket
<< Back to Robb Report, January 2014

A collaboration between one of the United States’ oldest men’s clothiers and a nearly 500-year-old Italian firearms maker has yielded the Brooks Brothers and Beretta Cordura Jacket (www.brooksbrothers.com; www.berettausa.com), a high-performance field jacket. The jacket has a cotton shell and an interior lined with Brooks Brothers’ signature tartan. It is available in navy or green and is priced at $698. Features include a game pocket, a foldable rain hat, fleece-lined pockets, and Gel-tec patches in the shoulders to help absorb the shock of a rifle discharge.
