It’s time to burn those Christmas cookies off on the slopes. If you’re in need of a new ski/snowboarding jacket this season, checkout the Spyder Enforcer. It’s basically a top of the line shell, giving you the flexibility to layer underneath appropriately for the weather conditions – hence, allowing for additional breathability and comfort when out in slightly warmer conditions. Restyled for this year, the coat has features including a core ventilation system, removable and insulated helmet compatible hood with adjustable opening, internal mesh goggle pocket, and chamois lens wipe. If you’re out in colder conditions, combine with the Spyder Exit Vest, which will insulate your core without interfering with your range of motion.

They’ve also released a new line of TAG Heuer accessories, and this racing jacket is probably the coolest.

It just may be tough to get your hands on one as it appears they are currently only being sold at select TAG Heuer boutiques.
Winter is ending and if you’re looking for a sharp new casual jacket for spring, check out this versatile Hooded Beach Jacket by Brooks Brothers.

If your year-end bonus wasn’t lucrative enough to get you a tire scorching drop-top 458 Spider for this spring, you can still sport the prancing horse logo for under a hundred bucks. This Ferrari track jacket by Puma is sporty and stylish light weight zip-up that can also be a substitute for a hoodie. However, if you wear it along with a Panerai for Ferrari watch, while driving a Ferrari, you may be over doing it (if only I had the funding to make that mistake).
