Gray Vintage Wash Rope-Dyed Denim Men’s Dakota Grizzly Ryder Shirt Review
With a gray vintage wash rope-dyed denim, this men’s long sleeve shirt feels as pleasant to the touch as it looks. While the style itself has more of a historical look, the finer details reveal neat pieces from the past. For instance, you’ll find snap buttons on all the pockets, including the cuffs.
Double chest pockets add some utility while a rack stitched hem adds a lot of visual interest to this shirt. While trying on the Ryder shirt, I had a chance to combine it with the Tripp Travel coat for an effortlessly layered look. Needless to say, the two go together like a match made in heaven.
Tobacco Microsuede Bench Cloth Men’s Dakota Grizzly Travel Coat Review
Speaking of the men’s Tripp Travel Coat, this was one of my favorite pieces from Dakota Grizzly. The quality and finer details were truly top notch.
The tobacco microsuede bench cloth travel coat had a rugged weight to it; however, it still felt smooth and luxuriously soft to the touch. Double and even triple stitching details were found throughout giving it not only added durability but a neat finished look.
Interior travel pockets paired with exterior chest and side pockets offered plenty of room for storing everything from my phone to keys, mini Rite in the Rain notebook and much more. Luggage gauge metal zippers were a treat to find on this coat as were the rustic and incredibly well done, center chest buttons.
Of course, those are just a few of the many things the Tripp Travel Coat had to offer. You can find a lot of more excellent details by looking closer at my photos. Lastly, the Dobby flannel yoke liner offered plenty of added warmth, while the microsuede exterior fabric offered a hand at breaking the wind. For colder fall and winter months, this jacket is just what I need.
Onyx Microfiber Diamond Quilted Men’s Dakota Grizzly Vic Vest Review
Aside from a sharp piece to layer with against a long sleeve and jacket, the Dakota Grizzly men’s Vic Vest offers the right amount of heat for colder temps.
With a stunning diamond quilted exterior in onyx microfiber, this vest combines both luxury and vintage charm into one. The waffle thermal yoke lining paired with an interior travel pocket and zippered chest pocket offer great utility. Add in the modern fit, and you’ve got one piece of clothing that I enjoy wearing around.
Beyond fit and first impressions, Dakota Grizzly managed to impress me with their finer details. River snaps and corduroy nylon accents were stellar to find, as was a small stitched grizzly bear detail on the back of the shoulder blade area.
