Street View is a fashion series in which Isa Giallorenzo spotlights some of the coolest styles seen in Chicago.

Love the way Eric sported a zipped-up quilted vest under his plaid jacket—it totally updated his vintage flair. Quilted or puffy vests are must-have items for any guy. Gap carries some great reversible ones (which always end up going on sale in their outlets). Layer under heavier and/or fancier jackets to keep both warm and cool. Or go for the urban lumberjack look and throw them over plaid flannel shirts.

Eric was shot at LVL3 Gallery’s fifth annual hArts for Art, a silent auction and benefit raffle benefiting local nonprofit Arts of Life.
