Seattle-based Girlfriend Collective sells a few fleece jackets, all made from recycled plastic water bottles.

Remember when everyone wore those black North Face Denali jackets with yoga pants and tan Ugg boots? Fear not: We're not throwing it back to 2008 just yet.

Nordstrom Rack stocks the mother lode of affordable men's fleeces—a mad-cozy camo number from Ugg ($83), water-preppy retro Brooks Brothers vest ($50). We're partial to Vans' teddy-bear faux shearling pullover (which, word to the wise, would be great for snuggling up with).
