The Most Wanted Hollister Jackets
Hollister’s Puffer Jackets
Not only will Hollister’s puffer jackets keep you warm on the coldest winter days, they will keep you looking good too. Made from a water and wind resistant fabric, the brand’s puffers come with a 100% recycled fill and polar-fleece-lined pockets for extra insulation. The hood is detachable so you can remove it according to the changing weather.
Hollister’s Parka Jackets
Worn by 90s rock stars and military personnel, the parka is one of the most versatile jackets you can own. Hollister’s parkas are built to keep you warm and dry, thanks to a plush sherpa lining and water and wind-resistant fabric. They come complete with details like logo tape and cargo pockets, which are lined in a soft fleece fabric for warmth.
Hollister’s Denim Jackets
Hollister’s denim jackets come in both classic stretch-denim designs in faded washes, as well as sherpa-lined styles for when the temperature drops. Each denim jacket features chest utility pockets, side welt pockets and metal hardware.
The Hollister Jackets Sizing Guide
To determine your size in Hollister jackets, you will need to first work out your measurements. You can use a tape measure, or a piece of string and then measure it with a ruler. Measure the fullest part of your chest, keeping the tape level under your arms and across your back. You will then need to measure the base of your neck to your shoulder, over your bent elbow and down to your wrist where you would like your sleeve to finish.
Hollister’s jackets range from XS to XXL, and you can use the below chart to convert the measurements and sizing into your usual European, UK or US size.
For example, if you normally wear a UK size 36 or EU size 46, you should buy your men’s Hollister jacket in a size S.
|Hollister Size||Chest (CM)||Arm (CM)||UK Size|
|XXS||74 - 79||79||30|
|XS||81 - 86||81||32|
|S||89 - 94||84||36|
|M||97 - 102||86||38|
|L||104 - 109||89||42|
|XL||112 - 117||91||44|
|XXL||119 - 124||93||48|
- Are Hollister jackets waterproof?
Instead of being waterproof, some men’s Hollister jackets are made from a water-repellent fabric, such as the faux-fur-lined military parka and fleece-lined jackets.
The level of waterproof protection a jacket offers can be a little confusing, especially when they come in the form of water-resistant and waterproof. It is important to know the difference, and choose a jacket depending on the protection you require.
• Water-resistant is similar to showerproof, and means that the jacket is coated in a waterproofing repellent at the outer fabric to prevent water absorbing but does not have taped seams. A majority of Hollister soft-shell jackets are both water-resistant and wind-proof. Water-resistant jackets are ideal for light showers and between-seasons weather.
• Waterproof jackets have a waterproof coating on the outer fabric with fully taped seams and a breathable membrane lining to ensure no water can penetrate it. It will keep you dry and cool, and is suitable for heavier rain.
- How much are Hollister jackets?
Hollister jackets range in price from £65 for a street-inspired windbreaker, with utility pockets and made from a nylon-blend shell fabric, to £180 for a down-blend parka with a faux-fur trim at the hood. However, most Hollister jackets cost between £79 and £160. It is also important to note that some styles might vary in price depending on retailers.
