What is the Willy California Quarter ZIp-Pullover?
The 502 Quarter-Zip Pullover is the new business uniform for men. The suit and tie outfit is dead and suits are being donated to charity at a record pace. Maybe, you still need one for weddings, just in case. At Willy California we designed our 502 Quarter-Zip Pullover for the whole day. Warm in the morning and super cool the rest of the day. In most business settings we simply aren’t comfortable in a shiny golf shirt with the super high tech fabric and a giant logo. After all, if we plan to sneak out for golf later, that is our secret And the latest trend of the checkered dress shirt shamefully tucked (or purposefully untucked) behind a Patagonia vest now has a bad name. We all need a layering item that works in any setting.
Whether you sit for 9 hours days behind a desk or hustle from site to site, guys need something that allows them to be versatile and active all day. Dressed up enough for the business meeting and sporty enough for everything else. The Quarter Zip Pullover from Willy California is the most versatile piece in our line.
Why are the Willy California Quarter-Zip So Amazing?
We need a layering item that actually can keep up for the whole day. No more carrying a full two wardrobe changes in an old gym bag. The Quarter Zip was designed for working out but has developed a cult following for its layering capability in a professional setting. Sport when you want to be active and professional when you need to be - the Willy way.
While blazers and slacks are great, we want a piece of clothing that is versatile enough for the whole day. In the ideal piece of clothing, you never know which direction a guy is heading. Is he going to the office or is he headed straight to the course? That’s what the boss looks like. The 502 Quarter-Zip Pullover from Willy California was made with exactly this look in mind. Classy enough to pull off the work outfit and sporty enough for everything else.
Four-way stretch, moisture wicking and a sleek, stylish design. This piece has it all. As usual, the attention to detail is perfect. A subtle, tonal logo that is understated and classy. Great zippers from YKK with the Willy logo on the pull. Most of all the Quarter-Zip is super comfortable. It moves when you move and holds its shape through multiple wears. And never, ever wrinkles when it’s tossed in your gym bag between activities. It comes in three great colors that match easily with everything in our line. Don’t forget to mix and match our shirts to create a pop of color when using the Quarter-Zip as a layering piece.
How to use the Willy California Quarter-Zip?
The Quarter Zip is the evolution of the sweatshirt. Sweatshirts get a bad rep because they tend to be old and ratty. We love them so much that we wear them far past their “sell buy” date. And they tend to be only in the dingy, heather grey, PE kit color. Which doesn’t age well. Above all, the favorite sweatshirt is almost always imprecisely cut as it was designed to fit everyone and therefore fits no one. Most guys look great in the sweatshirt straight out of the box, but as it becomes their favorite over the years it stretches and colors and becomes less and less fashionable every day. If you are twenty, that dingy, worn in look is probably OK, but no one with a job is wearing that look anywhere near the office. Don’t kill the sweatshirt, modernize it.
This is where the 402 Quarter Zip Pullover comes in. Your favorite sweatshirt 2.0. These pullovers are cut to make you look sleek and active. The high tech fabric is blended to simultaneously be soft and form-supporting. It moves when you move and doesn’t wrinkle when it’s tucked away. Most of all, the zipper gives you so many different looks for layering. The full zip to cover up your Tee and look like a man on the go. The half zip for a splash of color when you are running around. And the all the way down zipper for the “I just threw this old thing on”. You will be amazed at how many options a six inch zipper can give you. LIke a dial on your chest that allows you to change your mode with one tiny adjustment.
And we haven’t even mentioned working out in the 402 Quarter Zip Pullover, which is after all how it was crafted. This is the absolute perfect piece for a morning jog. A full moisture wicking fabric blend was designed for the gym or an outdoor session while making sure you look in control and sleek all the way to the finish line. This is the top half of our old school Adidas sweatsuit, minus the three stripes.
The 502 Quarter-zip pullover wins because of this blend of natural polyester with just the right amount of spandex. The polyester is going to give this pullover just the right amount of structure while the spandex gives you some stretch and pull. Not only that, but this blend is legit at moisture wicking and ensuring that even if you’ve got to really push yourself during your (literal) lunch run, you’ll still be dry, cool and fresh when you’re back in the office for your down-the-stretch meetings. For working out, working in or hardly working, this pullover was made to go.
When should I wear the 502 Quarter Zip Pullover?
The 502 Quarter Zip Pullover is the most versatile piece of clothing in our line. It’s designed for the whole day, from the gym to the office and everything in between. When paired with the 502 Track Pants, you are perfectly outfitted for a cool morning run, a long-haul flight or a Sunday in the office. While functionally designed to keep your warm on your way to the gym, it’s so stylish that it has grown into an accessory for the work day. When used properly this piece is off and on your body at least three times during the normal day. Put it on in the morning on your way to the gym. Off during your workout. Quick shower and then put the Quarter ZIp on again to create that layered look for the business day. Off when the day warms up and then on again for dinner and a few drinks.
Your leather gym bag and the Quarter-Zip will be fast friends. Throw the Quarter-Zip in your bag and be ready for everything the day brings at you. Not a wrinkle in sight. She said not to wear a Tee Shirt for lunch, throw on the Quarter-Zip and cover up your sins. Stop for a quick drink on the way home from the gym with the Quarter-Zip Pullover as a way to dress up your workout shorts. Ready made style in a bag. A security blanket for the busy guy.
Quarter-Zip with polo, Quarter-ZIp with Tee Shirt, zipped up or zipped down, work or play - versatility defined.
