Hey there, #BkFam! When it comes to stylish yet versatile streetwear, the Shacket reigns king as the perfect blend between street and casual wear. The shacket effortlessly combines a jacket's structure with a shirt's comfort. 

Prepare for a journey through the intricate world of men’s shackets, where warmth and style collide, ensuring wearers cozy yet quality garments. As a Brooklyn Cloth insider, I'm your style guru, here to explain why the shacket should be a staple in your closet. Join me as we unthread the history, dive into distinctive features, and unveil dope-style tips for the shackets that are dominating the fashion game.

History of Shackets:

The term "shacket" itself is a blend of "shirt" and "jacket," mirroring its double nature. Initially gaining popularity in the early 20th century, garments like the shacket were originally worn for workwear and labor-intensive purposes. Workers wore them exclusively to benefit from the durable yet comfortable structure. Fast forward to today, shackets are now embraced by a wide demographic, and they've evolved into a statement in casual wear.  

The Shacket’s Unique Features and Style Elements:

Brooklyn Cloth's got a shacket lineup as stacked as your fantasy team. Let's dive into the arsenal of shackets designed to up your drip and elevate your closet. 

  1. Heavy Flannel Shacket

Vintage meets today’s upgraded quality. The Heavy Flannel Shacket brings the classic plaid pattern to life with an updated twist. Want to know the method? The heavy flannel material – it's not your average lousy flannel. It brings ruggedness and warmth, making it perfect for colder seasons. Throw this shacket over your favorite tee, wide-leg jeans, and sneakers for a look nobody can hate. 

  1. Thermal-Lined Flannel Shacket

Dressing to be warm never looked so cool. The Thermal-Lined Flannel Shacket takes warmth to the next level without compromising style. Since this shacket is thermal lined, it is designed to trap more body heat, insulating your body against cold outdoor air by preventing heat loss. Rock it under an overcoat with baggy sweats and chunky sneakers for the ultimate cozy street vibe.

  1. Brown Brushed Wool Shacket


For those who appreciate menswear and intricate details, the Brown Brushed Wool Shacket is your ticket to sophistication. Brushed Wool is one of the most sought-after fabrics for the fall and winter, and here at Brooklyn Cloth, we are your supplier! The fiber is breathable and insulated, keeping you warm in our shacket once the temperature drops. Elevate your sartorial style by pairing it with a button-up shirt, tailored trousers, and loafers – a look that is date-night adequate.

  1. Flannel Hooded Zip Shacket

No hoodie? No Problem! Unleash the hype beast inside of you with the Flannel Hooded Zip Shacket. Zip it up or down; both looks are fire. The zip closure and hood are the difference maker in this shacket. It bridges the gap between functionality and fashion, allowing you to take a laid-back approach to the fit with the hood. Combine it with cargo pants, a statement beanie, and low-top kicks for a look that's bound to be on the Explore page.

  1. Heavy Knit Shacket
