On Thursday, September 22, Victorinox Swiss Army opened up their SoHo store for a preview of their upcoming fall/winter 15 and spring/summer collections. Unsurprisingly, there were many items to covet, from watches and knives to t-shirts and outerwear, but these are the five items I most want to add to my wardrobe.

Reversible Bomber
Price: $450
This fully reversible style is fabricated in 37.5 technology which uses millions of active particles to capture and release moisture vapor – ultimately helping to zone in on a personal microclimate of ideal relative humidity and core body temperature. The bomber features a vintage topographic Swiss map print on one side and Swiss military quilting on the other side.
