It’s all thanks to the dinosaurs. Fossil remains found in China in the 1990s show that feathers appeared on dinosaurs millions of years before they took flight, and aeons before evolution had shrunk the giant reptiles into the ancestors of our feathered friends. Down consists of fine, fluffy feathers that lie underneath a bird’s tougher exterior feathers. Garments made using down are warm and light, perfect for the winter season. Boggi Milano utilizes down in various type of jackets, parkas and waistcoats, all featuring the brand’s hallmark attention to style.
Ochre bomber jacket with down padding
This bomber jacket has an ultra-sporty appeal with its on-trend colours – dark ochre outside and bright yellow inside – and the versatility provided by removable sleeves. Unzipping them transforms the jacket into a padded waistcoat, making it perfect for dealing with the frequent changes in temperature both in the heart of winter and in late autumn/early spring. The lightness and performance of the down padding is enhanced by the ultra-light nylon fabric with ripstop reinforcement. In the photo, the mountaineering look is heightened by the 100% mouliné merino grey turtleneck sweater. Browse the ochre bomber jacket online.
Blue bomber jacket
Blue is a classic of menswear style, and a bomber jacket in this shade is a perfect accompaniment even with smart casual looks, over a jacket and shirt. In the photo, the blue bomber jacket with removable sleeves is paired with a stretch moleskin jacket with unstructured shoulders, but it would be equally effective when worn with a suit and tie.

Superlight Milano peacoat
In this light, modern garment, the element of goosedown is used in the padded bib, to provide extra comfort where it is most needed, around the neck and inside the front closure. It is a detail that increases the coat’s interest, adding an extra visual layer. It is perfect for a man who likes to keep up with the times, and it incorporates a lot of tailoring innovation, with waterproof Japanese nylon fabric and the design style provided by the slim-fit cut.

Mélange quilted waistcoat

This waistcoat has a raised collar that incorporates a hood for protection from the rain. In this photo it is worn over a full-zip hooded sweater, but it would work equally well with a smart casual outfit.
