this vest was so HOT last year, i couldn't get my hands on it in time. they were selling on ebay for $200+. it was crazy. so... when it came out again this year, i snagged it. immediately. they are still available on J.Crew in chartreuse, bright ivory, navy, and black; and on J.Crew Factory in bohemian red, warm bisque, dark navy, black, and a checkered buffalo blue. the only difference between the two is pricing and the pockets. the J.Crew excursion quilted vest is priced at $120, and the pockets have flaps with two exposed buttons at the top of each. the J.Crew Factory quilted puffer vest is priced at $58.50, and the pockets (flap-less) open at an angle with a single hidden button on the inside of each.
probably more than you wanted to know about these vests... but i hope this helps! be sure to pick one up ASAP! they go great with button downs (as i have it styled here), sweaters, and long sleeve shirts. a great "extra layer" that will get lots of use this season!
