GET ON BORG

By Style Feed Staff, 4 December 2017

Real shearling, or sheepskin, has been protecting cowboys, pilots and football managers against the elements for eons.The thick wool lining offers a snug way of keeping warm, but borg doesn’t come courtesy of our four-legged friends. This soft synthetic alternative has become an autumn/winter favourite and is now reinforcing all of our outerwear. Here are four stylish ways to get on borg.

The contrasting branded panel also adds a nice streetwear touch for a borg jacket with a difference. Team yours with a graphic-print tee, relaxed-fit camel worker pants and Nike SB Stefan Janoski creps in the same hue as your jacket to round off your skate-ready ensemble.

Popping puffer

For the last few years, the puffer jacket has been the go-to outerwear style of choice for the streetwear savvy. In an off-white shade, this borg version of the 90s-born silhouette has been built to withstand the cold – it’s fully lined and features a snug funnel neck.

Under your jacket, don a striped shirt in neutral colours and pair it with straight-leg dark-wash jeans. Finish your ensemble with monochrome kicks to keep the look clean and minimal.

Wavy workwear

When it comes to the current menswear scene, there’s a definitive preoccupation with workwear garms. If you’re looking to up your skate style game, brands such as Dickies, Carhartt and Levi’s have been delivering some serious worker pants.

And what better to pair them with than a borg worker jacket? In a neat navy hue, this one comes with functional pockets and an extra-smart pointed collar. Wear it with a graphic-print T-shirt and Vans Old Skool trainers for a slick getup.

To amplify the abstract element, wear a striped T-shirt underneath your jacket. Create a pocket-heavy ensemble and go for khaki combat trousers on your bottom half. To finish, don a pair of all-black kicks to complement your top half and keep your look controlled.
