    J Crew Factory layering vest - Similar Options?



    Hi.


    I've been looking at this j crew factory layering vest (http://factory.jcrew.com/mens-clothi...7752/47752.jsp) to wear under sportcoats, jackets, etc in the fall/winter.


    It seems perfect except for the color (would prefer something that would pop - red, burgundy, bright blue, etc.). Does anybody know of any other options that are similarly priced or cheaper?

    The only thing I could find after an admittedly non-exhaustive search is this vest from Nautica: http://www.nautica.com/product/index.jsp?productId=13131651


    I found two similar? the same? style and color on ebay, but in rather large sizes:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Nautica-Bright-Blue-Quilted-Vest-Mens-Size-3XL-New-w-tags-Ultra-Down-Protects-/160872961515?pt=US_CSA_MC_Outerwear&hash=item2574c 695eb


    The Nautica doesn't have the same quilting design as the J. Crew Factory and is almost certainly thicker than the J. Crew Factory. I worked at a J. Crew Factory store over the summer (up until about 2 weeks after the fall line roll out) and spent a good amount of time looking at the layering vest. It certainly is a *layering* vest. Very thin so that it can be layered, but don't throw it on without something heavier on either above or below it and expect not to get hypothermia.


    It also makes it a style I have yet to find anywhere else.

      Uniqlo has one in a nice standout red plaid: http://www.uniqlo.com/us/store/made-.../073768-38-003
