The forms are classic—bomber, leather, peacoat, trench, puff—but the subtle new stylings of this season’s best coats and jackets are what will make you stand out in the cold. A well-placed zipper on a leather jacket or the lush fur lining inside a parka can transform a utilitarian piece of clothing into something that you’ll want to pair with everything in your wardrobe.
And that’s the beauty of the season’s best: Whether you’re wearing jeans, khakis, or even a suit, there’s a perfect coat to match. We celebrate the best examples of each outerwear staple and showcase exactly how the jacket makes the man. Check out these kickass coats of armor.
Now that it’s fall, the days of just wearing your button-up to work—or your favorite name-brand T-shirt when you take a fine lady out on a date—are temporarily over. The upside? It’s time to add another layer to your dashing fit.
But just because there’s a chill in the mornings doesn’t mean you have to throw on a huge parka with several sweaters underneath. The fall season is all about colors and style. For some people it’s your last chance before winter to show off your personal style flavor before it gets too nippy out. Because once that temperature starts getting disrespectfully cold, the main priority becomes staying warm as opposed to looking fashionable. (Unless you live in California or Florida or something—and if you do, then a bomber jacket is all you need.)
Point is: You’re going to need a jacket that will pop, but keep you warm at the same time. Something you can wear with a button-up shirt and tie, or just a plain T-shirt. Something that will complement joggers, jeans, and chinos. You want a bomb-looking jacket this fall. In fact, to be a little more specific, you need a bomber jacket.
Take a breeze through our top trendy bombers of fall 2017.
We’re in the awkward phase. (No, not puberty.) We’re talking about that time between fall and winter when the weather can swing from 74° in November (thank you, global warming) to a see-your-breath 30°…in one afternoon.
When those days come around, the average outerwear typically doesn’t cut it. Put on a winter coat and you’re overheating; leave the house with only a light jacket and you’re shivering as the car warms up. What you need is a transitional jacket—something as versatile as the weather you’ll be facing every day.
Here, we’ve rounded up our favorite transitional jackets. From bombers to rainwear, denim to leather, these 10 picks will keep you dry, comfortable, and stylish as hell no matter what the weather throws at you.
When you’re on the hunt for the perfect parka, puffer, or aviator jacket, you can run into gut-wrenching price tags. This winter, save your money for a weekend road trip or alpine getaway.
So whether you’re looking to buy a proper slope-ready coat or want to add some more stylish outerwear to the mix, choose your winter jackets wisely to make sure you get the most for your money. For a sporty winter jacket, durability is key. You’ll want a waterproof, windproof, rugged exterior, and a warm synthetic insulation. For a casual jacket, go for comfort and versatility. But don’t skimp on quality and fit.
To make purchasing easier on you (and your wallet), we hunted down the 10 best winter jackets under $ 200. This way, you won’t go broke on coats, but you’ll still look and feel sharp for every occasion.
You don’t want to be that guy who freezes all winter long because you’re wearing a crappy, threadbare coat you got at a garage sale five years ago. And you definitely don’t want to be the guy who wears a ski jacket to the office, unless of course you work at a ski resort.
Point is: Performance jackets have their time and place. But for all of life’s other events, you want a sophisticated jacket or coat that conveys you’re an adult male who puts some thought into getting dressed every morning.
Fortunately, you don’t have to do that much thinking. Here, we’ve selected 10 coats that range in style and price to help elevate your look (and your core temperature) this winter.
We get it: the whole point of summer is that you get to leave your jacket at home. But there are arguments to doing the contrary: not only will lightweight jackets pull your look together, but the comfort of having an extra layer once the temperature dips at night makes them a good option. (Plus, having somewhere to store your headphones, pocket knife, pens, and sunglasses that isn’t the pocket of whatever pair of pants you’re wearing is always a welcome thing.) Sure, don’t bring a jacket for those miserable sweaty triple-digit days, but a jacket at the office will save you from office air conditioners, cold conference rooms and any last-minute after-work plans that might creep up.
