Sometimes only a fleece will do. It is the textile equivalent of your favorite chair: relaxing, warming, comfortable. Orvis invites you to find your perfect fleece jacket. If you’re looking for a lightweight layer, consider a coat of many colors: the grid fleece pullover, in a shade that becomes you. And while you may not care one whit about x where it intersects with y, you might be interested to know that the micro-grid pattern in fleece is exactly what the name implies. The result of all those calculated intersections is perfectly calibrated, lightweight warmth. During cold-weather months you’ll likely reach for your micro-grid fleece daily.
You’ll also find slightly grander fleece outerwear, if that’s more to your liking. Lord James Percy of Northumberland, regarded as one of the best shooters of his generation, designed a handsome and practical fleece hunting jacket for Barbour of England. You’ll look dashing in it, whether you’re hunting for grouse on the moors or for gruyère at the grocery.
The inventors of fleece sought a fabric that would emulate wool, without being fussy or high-maintenance. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, we’ve been told. There’s room in the world for them both. When you need something soft and warm, but also breathable and quick-drying, reach for fleece. And when you’ve finished your fun, peel it off and pitch it in the wash. We’re not pulling the wool over your eyes. Shop here for the perfect fleece sweatshirt.

I bought the Microsuede Fleece Jacket because I was looking a thin, medium warmth layer that could also be worn in place of a coat in cool weather. I often pair this with a vest when it's quite cold. If I am doing some physical activity and generating body heat, it's comfortable over a long sleeve T-shirt. It's stylish enough to be worn out to dinner with khakis and a button down as well.

I bought this fleece jacket for my father-in-law and he just loved it! He remarked several times about the fit and feel of the fabric. Usually, I buy him a large long in all shirts, etc. but the XL fit him nicely. It was a bit big around the waist, but it allowed him to layer. He wore it for most of his visit. I highly recommend this jacket!
