Waxed field jackets, the world’s official uniform of lazy afternoon dog walks, have long been known for their no-nonsense design and construction. But leave it to Ermenegildo Zegna to offer an elevated take on such a utilitarian piece.
Instead of a cotton shell, the jacket is made of the brand’s exclusive Trofeo wool from its Italian mill, which has been treated with a proprietary waxed finish for ultimate protection against the elements.
The traditional corduroy collar is rendered in a soft cashmere blend, and a removable down vest lining extends the jacket’s usefulness well into winter — which no doubt your dog will appreciate.
