Bluffworks is on sale, and two of my faves are ~50% off
Bluffworks makes a great travel suit, but two of the items I’ve gotten far more use out of ( since I don’t wear suits that often ) are the jeans and jacket I received in January. Check out my review below, but they are stylish additions to my wardrobe and they’re truly great.
In January I went on a trip through London and Iceland. As you can imagine, I was in need of some clothes that would not only be stylish, but layer, and travel well. Luckily, Bluffworks hit me up prior to my trip and offered to send me a few items to try out. I’m a big fan of their Travel Suit and Ascender pants, but I’m a jeans snob and felt their original departure jeans wouldn’t be my go-to. I was eager to try out their next generation jeans, and I’ll be the first to say…they’re the real deal. In the months since that trip I’ve worn those black jeans on any occasions.
As an aside…I earn a commission when you use these links, but my reviews are my own and unbiased.
I was really excited to try out Bluffworks new Field Jacket from the images they distributed and let me tell you…it’s as attractive in person. It’s super lightweight, water proof, and looks very smart. With a total of 10 pockets, 4 of which have zip enclosures, you’ll find ample room for storage. Which is exactly what I was able to do.
Each day I was out I was able to store a portable charger for my iPhone 11 Pro Max, my GoPro and stick, hand sanitizer, my wallet, spare batteries, and gloves. What was even better…it never looked bulky. In fact, I received multiple compliments on how stylish the jacket looked. One thing I love in comparison to say a Barbour is the length…it stopped just shy of my waist. A great fit.
The first generation Departure Jean just didn’t fit to my liking. Not that it wouldn’t be attractive to some people, but living in LA and working in the entertainment industry, I wear jeans a lot and wanted a slimmer line and stretch. Voila…that’s what Bluffworks did + they added pockets.
On a 14 day trip, I’d say I wore their jeans 10 of the 14 days. That’s saying a lot. The fit makes them look like slim cut designer jeans and the stretch means they’re comfy even on an 8 hour flight. Add secure rear zipped pockets, and even one in the left front, and you can walk around crowded cities feeling confident your valuables are as secure as possible.
I’m a huge fan. As you can see in this photo…I wore both to the Blue Lagoon ( I even had on a long sleeve Threshold Tee to Layer up )
