Find the Right Fit: Jeans and Jackets

34 Heritage Cool Mid Rise Tapered: These offer room at the top and taper toward the ankles, giving the illusion of a slim cut.

Spring 2020 denim jackets
Nigel Cox for Men’s Journal

Not Just for Truckers

Unless you still fit into the vintage denim jacket you wore in college (kudos, you), it’s time to nab a new one. If your look is modern, opt for a slim cut that looks correct atop a button-down shirt.

For everyday wear, pick a heritage design that’s loose enough to button over a sweatshirt. Here are three of our favorites, from left to right:

The Most Stylish Vegan and Genuine Leather Jackets for Men

Leather jackets complete the holy trinity of men’s fall fashion (don’t miss our boots and denim guides). In the spirit of the season, we’re channeling Amy Poehler and Maya Rudolph’s giddiness for “sweata weatha”—if you haven’t seen it, stop what you’re doing and watch their stupidly funny Bronx Beat SNL sketch—and leaning in to “leatha weatha.”

Of all the cold-weather essentials, you’ll definitely drop the most coin on this one—that’s just the nature of purchasing something that could very well last a lifetime.


The Best-Smelling Fall Colognes for Men

“Investing in the perfect jacket is right up there with the perfect boots—or even your next car,” jokes New York fashion stylist Seppe Tirabassi. “There’s a whole library of styles and fits out there when it comes to leather outerwear.”


The Fall Fashion Essentials Every Outdoorsman Needs for a Weekend Getaway

The iconic biker aesthetic (à la Old Hollywood bad boys Brando and Dean) might come to mind, but that’s just the first chapter. From a modern suede blouson that’s impossibly smooth to a vegan-friendly faux-leather puffer, Tirabassi’s curated 10 leather jackets that will last you many seasons to come.


Our 2019 Fall Fashion Preview, Starring Yahya Abdul-Mateen II

1. Nate Clean Black Leather Jacket from Acne Studios

“With ultra-soft nappa leather, Acne’s biker jacket boasts classic design cues like a belted waist and cut along the collar, but the Swedish brand makes it feel contemporary with a slightly oversized fit,” Tirabassi explains.

[$ 1,650; acnestudios.com]

2. Vegan Leather Hooded Puffer from Nanushka

“Nanushka wins with their all-vegan leather offerings, like this trendy puffer hybrid. With the quality and texture of the material, you’d never know it was made of faux-leather,” Tirabassi says. The puffer hood, deep pockets, and high collar will help you conquer frigid temperatures in style.

[$ 771; nanushka.com]

3. RRL Slim Fit Leather Jacket from Ralph Lauren

“Ralph Lauren’s RRL brand will give you the best well-worn finish, and this one gives you a head start with some of the black finishing already faded,” says Tirabassi. “It’s also lightweight enough to carry you through three seasons.”

[$ 1,900; ralphlauren.com]

4. Sidney Leather Jacket in Merino Shearling from Belstaff

The Sidney jacket is a statement piece with a soft wax coating and asymmetric fastening in the front. “You don’t need a motorbike to look badass in this Belstaff piece,” says Tirabassi, “I love the quilted shoulders and high snap collar, plus the shearling lining is key for winter warmth.”

[$ 1,295; belstaff.com]

5. Suede Western Jacket from Frame

“A suede jacket like this one from Frame is a must-have in any guy’s fall closet,” according to Tirabassi. “Western details like flap patch front pockets, polished hardware, and khaki tone will stand out from the pack.”

[$ 950; frame-store.com]

6. Bonded Suede Jacket from Club Monaco

“Club Monaco’s bonded suede jacket features a second layer of warmth thanks to a scuba interior. Yes, it’s the same material used in a wetsuit for insulation. The color is technically grey, but has a reddish undertone that’s pretty unique,” he explains.

[$ 698; clubmonaco.com]

7. Northwick Leather Biker Jacket from Allsaints

Tirabassi is a big fan of Allsaints’ leather goods. “Their jackets are affordable and made of quality leather—a good way to go if you’re on a budget. This biker fit has blacked out hardware to give a muted, youthful look that’s super stylish.” says Tirabassi.

[$ 535; us.allsaints.com]

Courtesy Image

8. Miles Tobacco Suede Trucker Jacket with Shearling Collar from Reiss

“The trucker silhouette and shearling collar on the Miles jacket are details that skew more casual, but are tastefully executed,” Tirabassi says. “The tobacco color is the perfect shade of brown to pair with other fall classics, like your favorite pair of jeans or boots.”

[$ 795; reiss.com]

Courtesy Image

9. Liam Faux Leather Bomber Jacket from Stella McCartney

Designer Stella McCartney (yes, that McCartney) is vocal about not utilizing animal products in her widely acclaimed collections, instead investing in extensive research to produce the highest-quality vegan materials. “Her men’s line is still pretty new, and she’s bringing in ethical vegan components to some stellar pieces. Even the shearling collar on this bomber is faux, but feels like the real thing.”

[$ 1,305; stellamccartney.com]

Courtesy Image

10. Leather Biker Jacket from Dunhill

If you’ve got the funds, tap this luxury British heritage brand for your leather needs. “Dunhill’s calfskin leather is incredibly supple, and they excel at incorporating refined finishes like the subtle stitch detailing on the arms, chest, and back,” says Tirabassi. “This is not your dad’s jacket.”

Chill Chasers: The Best New Shell Jackets for Every Adventure

A shell jacket doesn’t get the recognition it deserves. It can singlehandedly keep your runs, hikes, and time on the mountain from becoming a sufferfest, simply by keeping you dry, dumping excess heat and moisture, and adding an extra layer of warmth when you need it.


The Best Midlayer Jackets to Keep You Warm and Dry This Season

A great shell can handle fall’s mixed bag of weather—from sunny and dry to damp and chilly. And some of our favorites of fall 2019 wear like, well, typical outdoor jackets, boosting their versatility. They can even be layered up when the temperature drops to chase the chill.

3. Mallet Jacket from Burton

As body heat rises, the fibers in Burton’s liner shrink, letting heat escape; then as you cool down, they plump to retain warmth. This vintage-looking bomber is at home during those indoor-outdoor pub crawls.

4. Tasman Jacket from Jack Wolfskin

This hybrid puffy is not what you expect: The arms and back feel like a comfy, stretchy fleece, but your chest is protected by baffles of stitch-free duck down. The heat-welded insulation won’t sag over time.

Most stylish bomber jackets of fall 2017

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.

1. Embroidered Bomber Jacket by Zara

Zara is definitely one of best stops for style-minded guys on a budget. This slim-fit bomber has embroidered roses located on the front and back, giving it that loud look to make heads turn. Made with 100% viscose fabric, this jacket is exactly the right look for a night out with a nice pair of jeans or chinos. ($ 110.00 zara.com)

Alternatively, if you’re looking for something a little more classically styled on a similar budget, consider Zara’s burgundy faux-suede bomber. Its contrast collar and cuffs give it a varsity jacket type of feel—perfect for pairing with chinos or jeans. ($ 80.00 zara.com)

2. Alpha Industries B-15 Slim-Fit Bomber Jacket

Alpha Industries is known for producing old school-looking outerwear with that vintage heritage. This all-black number comes with a fluffy faux fur collar to keep your neck extra cozy when the wind might try to attack. When rocking this jacket, try to go for a more relaxed look—it’ll make a chill outfit appear 10 times better. ($ 150.00alphaindustries.com)

Courtesy Image

3. Denim MA1 Bomber Jacket by Topman

You have a denim jacket, but do you have a denim bomber? Combine the two for a popular look that could flow with a bunch of different styles. This streetwise bomber can even be put on with a shirt and tie, but don’t force it—a hoodie, sweatshirt, or regular tee would go nice with it as well. ($ 75.00 us.topman.com)

Courtesy Image

4. Camouflauge Bomber jacket by Zara

Guess who it is again, none other than Zara. This camo bomber is a little lighter than others, so it’s definitely not meant for an overly nippy day. But man does it stand out. Along with you being able to wear this just about anywhere, it also has zip-up pockets so you don’t have to worry about misplacing your belongings. ($ 90.00 zara.com)

Courtesy Image

5. Tan Faux Suede Bomber Jacket by Boohoo

There’s nothing like a classic suede jacket, but when you top it off with a perfect tan color to complement the fall season, you’ll instantly bring your outfit over the top. Pro tip: When you throw this smooth jacket on, make sure to keep the zipper unzipped—sometimes, it just looks better that way. ($ 66.00 us.boohoo.com)

Courtesy Image

6. Wallace & Barnes MA-1 Bomber Jacket by J. Crew

This casual bomber may look simple, but this simple is as good as it gets. If you’re looking for a versatile, laid-back look with a utilitarian edge—note that zip pocket on the left sleeve—then this jacket may be the money-maker. With zip and buttoned pockets, and a classic rib trim on the collar and cuffs, there’s just no way you can go wrong purchasing this vintage-styled piece. ($ 178.00 jcrew.com)

Courtesy Image

7. Vintage Bomber Jacket w/ Faux Shearling by Wilsons Leather

If you’re spending autumn in Milwaukee instead of Malibu, then this is the jacket for you. This vintage leather jacket not only has faux shearling on the inside and the collar, but also a removable hood. This classic bomber can be worn with just about anything, but make sure you’re sporting a nice combination with it—your best jeans and a pair of kickass boots should work—because this jacket is just a little tougher to pair than most others. This jacket runs small because of the fur, get one size above your normal if you’re on the fence. ($ 330.00 wilsonsleather.com)

Courtesy Image

8. Astor Shell MA-1 Slate bomber jacket by Kith

This sky-blue beauty may be too loud for some, but if loud is what you’re going for then this is exactly what you need. This soft-but-durable nylon bomber has a simple design, but the color does all the talking. It’s more of a spring collection piece, but you can make it a fall winner if you pair it with a pair of dark jeans, caramel leather shoes, or a camel sweater underneath to ground the rest of your outfit in more earthy tones. Hurry up and check it out before all the UNC Tar Heels fans get ahold of it. ($ 165.00 kith.com)

Courtesy Image

9. The New County Bomber Jacket in Teddy Faux Fur by Asos

Without a doubt, this plush classic is the most eye-popping, jaw-dropping jacket on the list. This smooth faux fur is so soft and cozy that you might want to wear it inside out. As for the styling: With this bomber, you won’t need an impressive shirt or pair of pants—something normal and comfortable will do just fine. ($ 151.00 asos.com)

Courtesy Image

10. Crosstown Bomber by Public Rec

This simple, straightforward, and eminently comfortable bomber jacket is ideal for adding some style points to your comfortable outfit while running errands, heading to work, or just bumming around the neighborhood on weekends. It’s stretchy, soft, and includes a few zipper pockets to stash your stuff. ($ 128, publicrecapparel.com)

Best transition jackets 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.

1. The Weldon by Nobis

When brisk fall mornings turn blustery and wet by night, you need a wind- and waterproof jacket that’ll shield your clothes and face. You get that and more with Nobis’ handsomely styled Weldon jacket. It has a mesh liner and armpit zip vents to prevent overheating; a dropped tail to shield against mud and rain splatter; and a bevy of multipurpose pockets (some with side and front entry) so you can store your belongings and keep your hands dry. ($ 495, nobis.com)

Courtesy Image

2. Jacket of All Trades Interchangeable Jacket by Columbia

You get all-season versatility with this. You also get three jackets in one. There’s a shell; a reversible, waterproof liner (the opposite side is all blue); and a water-resistant fleece bomber. When it’s bone-chillingly cold and wet, wear the full getup. And if it’s unseasonably mild, rock the bomber (the camo print is inspired by one of Columbia’s vintage looks). The shell also has an oversized pocket at the lower back to stow the liner. ($ 260, columbia.com)

Courtesy Image

3. Räven Jacket by Fjallraven

The M-65 jacket has enjoyed many civilian iterations since the original U.S. Army models were shipped out in ’65, but Fjallraven’s Raven jacket is our favorite in ’17. The Raven retains all the handsome styling that made the originals such a pragmatic classic of American style: four chest pockets, draw-cords in the waist and bottom hem to trim the fit, and a fixed hood that deploys out of the collar on rainy afternoons. What sets this bird apart, though, is Fjallraven’s signature G-1000 fabric, which is tough, durable, fast-drying, and weather-resistant. ($ 225, fjallraven.us)

4. Classic Racer Leather Moto Jacket by Schott

Nobody ever buys a leather jacket because it’s practical. People buy leather jackets because they are goddamn badass—and the Racer Leather Moto Jacket from Schott is no exception. But the 141, as it’s known in Schott-speak, is ideal for that autumn-to-winter transition period. Made with gusseted underarm “footballs” and a big back panel, the 141 allows enough range of motion to throw a strong right hook, while the tough brass and nickel-plated hardware (notably the cuff zippers and zipper pockets) seal your body against chilly November wind. Factor in the removable poly twill liner and real-deal American leather, and this masterpiece of a moto jacket will be the perfect companion on any ride (or regular commute) in any season. ($ 765, schottnyc.com)

5. The Shirt Jacket by Bonobos

It’s officially the year of the shirt jacket renaissance. But as is often the case with flannels and dress shirts, even shirt jackets tend to be boxy and, frankly, a little frumpy-looking. That’s why we like Bonobos’ slim-fitting, lightly insulated shirt jackets. They’ll keep you warm on cool days, layer perfectly under heavier coats on wintry mornings, and fit handsomely around most frames no matter what you’re wearing it with. ($ 198, bonobos.com)

6. Flapjack Shirt Jac by Duluth Trading Co.

Here it is: The burliest, warmest shirt you could possibly imagine. Duluth Trading Co. has pumped this 8-oz cotton flannel shirt full of poly fleece—perfect for insulating you on cold days in the yard, in the stadium stands, or in front of the fire. It also packs the details that make Duluth’s flannels so practical, like armpit gussets (so you can throw a football without untucking your shirt) and snap closures on the front and cuffs (so you can button up when you have gloves on). Available in six colors. ($ 79.50, duluthtrading.com)

7. Faux Shearling Lined Denim Chore Jacket by Topman

Head out to any bar or park and you’ll see a sea of dudes decked out in denim jackets. Everyone agrees it’s functional, timeless, and a breeze to style—but you don’t want to blend in, right? So nab a denim jacket with some character and intrigue. Topman’s Faux Shearling Lined Denim Chore Jacket comes off the shelf with some light distressing, which ups the cool factor without being over-the-top. The faux shearling lining also keeps you warm as temperatures drop. ($ 91, topman.com)

Courtesy Image

8. Biker Jacket by Zara

Zara strikes the perfect balance of quality clothing at remarkably reasonable prices. Take its Biker Jacket: The ribbing along the arms, belt detail at the hem, and zippered pockets and cuffs give it some edge—but also make it easy to dress up or down. Pair it with tattered jeans for a night out or spruce it up with a dress shirt and some slim-cut trousers. Don’t be scared off by the term “faux leather” either—it has an authentic look and feel. ($ 129, zara.com)

Courtesy Image

9. Jonesville Bomber Jacket by Carhartt

With Carhartt, you know you’re getting a true workman’s garment that’s built to last. You get that durability in the Jonesville Bomber, but in a totally different silhouette and aesthetic than Carhartt’s benchmark jackets. It’s crafted from a polyester pile—like fleece—that insulates heat exceptionally well. And while the bomber has a loose cut, rib-knit cuffs at the wrists and hem give it that clean look. ($ 208, carhartt-wip.com)


10. Quilted Down Jacket by Dockers

We love the quilted detailing on this stylish, lightweight jacket from Dockers. Made with cotton and down insulation, you’ll get the warmth and coverage you need, without sweating your ass off. ($ 148, dockers.com)

Winter jackets under $200

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.

1. MicroTherm Stormdown Jacket by Eddie Bauer

If you’re looking for a no-nonsense, no-frills, keeps-you-warm-in-just-about-any-weather coat for under $ 100, then Eddie Bauer’s MicroTherm Stormdown Jacket is your best bet. The 50% recycled 20-denier ripstop poly shell is water-resistant enough to keep you dry during surprise showers or misty days, and the Responsible Down Standard-certified insulation will keep you warm on even the most blustery days. The Stormdown coat is also trim-fitting, so you won’t look like the Michelin Man—but go down a size if you’re in-between sizes, because Eddie B. products tend to run large. ($ 99.50, eddiebauer.com)

2. Whaleback Waterproof Jacket by Duluth Trading Co.

Duluth Trading Co. has earned its reputation for high-grade working gear that puts functional performance above all else—and the Whaleback Waterproof Jacket is no exception. This coat is tough inside and out. A waterproof 6-oz nylon shell, reinforced double-layer shoulders, and a double-layer front storm flap will seal out wind, rain, and snow, while classic Thinsulate insulation keeps you warm and toasty when the temps drop. The smart folks at Duluth have also added in a few mobility-enhancing details we love, like the brand’s classic Armpit Gussets, back-wicking panels, and “pit zips” to help you move freely and without extra sweat. ($ 169.50, duluthtrading.com)

3. Thomas Insulated Winter Parka with Inset Bib by London Fog

Look polished even when the heavens open to dump snow, sleet, and rain. This London Fog parka has a convenient quilted bib neck collar to seal in your body heat and keep out moisture, but you don’t have to worry about overheating once you get indoors. There’s a centralized back so you can let off some steam without disrobing. ($ 129, londonfog.com)

4. Men’s PackDown Jacket by Mountain Hardwear

Durable and ridiculously easy to stuff in a suitcase, you’ll want to live in this cozy jacket from Mountain Hardwear—no matter where your winter travels take you. It’s like receiving a warm hug—cozy and comforting—but with the water-repelling power of a shield. Plus, you get the added bonus of zippered pockets to keep electronics safe and sound. ($ 200, mountainhardwear.com)

5. Shearling Aviator Jacker by River Island

Instantly elevate your style this winter with River Island’s Aviator Jacket. You get the relaxed coziness from the faux shearling lining bundled with an edgy, cool-as-hell silhouette. Plus, it has everyday wearability. Dressed up or down, day or night, in the dead of winter, and it’ll always be a good choice. ($ 180, us.riverisland.com)

6. Ulta Light Down Parka by Uniqlo

If you prioritize function over high fashion, this ultra-light parka will exceed your expectations of what a down jacket can be. Sleek and insulating (but never bulky), this winter jacket won’t have you feeling like a marshmallow. Plus, it comes in some eye-catching colors, so you’ve got plenty of options no matter your style. ($ 79.90, uniqlo.com)

7. Padron Insulated Jacket by Volcom

Whether you live in a bustling city or out in the mountains with nothing but passing moose for neighbors, this durable, insulated jacket from Volcom will help you brave the snow in style. Its weatherproof exterior is bolstered by a snuggly fleece lining for extra warmth. This is a winter-ready steal. ($ 200, volcom.com)

8. Black Corduroy Puffer Jacket by Topman

Corduroy and puffer jackets are two classic cold-weather trends that have exploded back into popularity over the last year. Topman’s rendition combines both: Toasty puffer segments get some serious flare with thick corduroy fabrication. We also love the discrete, faded pinstriping. ($ 140, us.topman.com)

9. Faux Suede Coat by Zara

Left open or buttoned-up, this faux suede coat says gentleman. It’s dapper and decidedly more grown-up, with its off-seam pockets, double-breasted buttons, and brandy coloring. We love the collar; it has a buckle fastening so you can cloak your neck with the faux shearling lining. ($ 199, zara.com)

10. Battle Parka by Carhartt WIP

Simplicity at its best, Carhartt’s khaki Battle Parka is perfect for layering. The hood, cuffs, and waist are all adjustable to make room for chunky sweaters, scarves, and the like. Just keep it for dry days, as it’s not waterproof. ($ 198, carhartt-wip.com)

Badass winter jackets for 2017-2018

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.

1. Men’s Cryos Expedition GTX Parka by The North Face

Whether home is Dakota plains or the urban skyscraper canyons of Manhattan, block out winter’s worst with The North Face’s newest Cryos Expedition Parka. The goose-down jacket feels like a warm hug, and shields you from wind—even in hellacious conditions. The Cryos features a front storm flap that keeps out snow, wind, and rain; pass-through chest pockets; and a fleece-lined handwarmer to prevent your fingers from turning to popsicles. There’s even a detachable wind skirt and snorkel hood to truly seal out the elements. And did I mention it’s handsome as hell? — Brittany Smith, associate editor ($ 800, thenorthface.com)

2. Greenland No.1 Special Edition Jacket by Fjallraven

If you like your winter coats subtle and toasty, then this is the one for you. Fjallraven’s Greenland No.1 Special Edition is a thing of minimalist beauty. The outer shell is cut from Fjallraven’s signature G-1000 Eco fabric, which shrugs off wind and rain with ease—especially if you wax it. It’s not too heavy, but the sustainably sourced down fill is burly and more than enough insulation to keep you warm. The whole package is finished off with stylish leather accents, which make this otherwise utilitarian expeditioner’s coat into a handsome, go-anywhere addition to your outerwear selection. Our only quibble: It doesn’t have hand-warmer pockets; for those, look to the newer Greenland No.1 model. — Michael Rodio, senior editor ($ 300, fjallraven.us)

3. Sequence System Jacket by Obermeyer

This sharp jacket is basically two in one: a nylon down inner jacket cloaked by a waterproof, soft-shell exterior insulated with duck-feather down. Strategically placed openings and closures release pent-up heat in hot spots like your underarms and upper thighs—perfect for commuters who tend to overheat on trains and buses. The arms are articulated and curved for total range of motion. It even comes ready for total-shit-storm weather, with components like a packable emergency hood and an exterior storm flap that keeps moisture and wind from penetrating the front zipper. — B.S. ($ 529, obermeyer.com)

4. Denim Parka Jacket by Sixth June

You wouldn’t think denim, faux fur, and shearling would fly in one jacket, but Sixth June nailed it; its Denim Parka is a marvel. This cozy jacket has an interior drawstring to create a more streamlined fit, features a removable hood, and double fastening (zipper and buttons) to truly block out wind. One thing’s for sure: You’ll stand out in a sea of puffers and pea coats with this modern spin on a parka. — Brian Riley, editorial assistant (sixthjune.com, $ 239.88)

5. Asymmetric Coat by Zara

If your style skews more classic, then try this wool camel coat from Zara. It has a clean-cut silhouette, but ups the cool factor with an asymmetric opening that creates a funnel collar when buttoned closed to protect against biting temps. You’ll instantly feel more put-together.  — B.S. ($ 249, zara.com)

6. Hooded Vintage Sheepskin Bomber Jacket by Schott

Bone-achingly cold weather calls for jackets you (and your girl) want to snuggle into. Schott’s Vintage Sheepskin Bomber offers that comfort and warmth without sacrificing style. The shearling lining and contrasting cowhide trim are edgy but wearable. The classic fit is perfect for layering: Plush sweaters, sport jackets, and scarves fit comfortably underneath. — B.R. (urbanoutfitters.com, $ 1,195.00)

7. The Yatesy by Nobis

This jacket screams warmth (it feels that way, too). It’s filled with Canadian duck down, sealed off at the seams with a wind- and waterproof coating, and bolstered by a hanging down liner and wind skirt. You’ve got plenty of pockets to store gloves and a hat, side vents for mobility, and an in-hood wire plus double drawstring to ensure you’re the coziest bastard around. — B.S. ($ 1,195, nobis.com)

8. Maine Guide Wool Parka by L.L. Bean

L.L. Bean’s Maine Guide Parka is crafted from a tightly woven wool and cut full for easy layering. It’s reinforced with PrimaLoft insulation for greater warmth whether you’re running errands or hunting in the woods. I like the convenient hand-warmer pockets and collar strap closure—you don’t need to tug anything back in place. And for added practicality, there’s a back zip cargo pocket with reinforcements for drag rope or a survival kit. — B.R. (llbean.com, $ 249)

9. Macculloch Parka by Canada Goose

Made for any type of expedition—whether you’re going to Antarctica or across town for dinner—this Macculloch Parka by Canada Goose will keep you warm in even the harshest of conditions, while its contemporary design is right on-trend. With a removable puffy hood for protection in high winds, a number of storage pockets, and down insulation, this parka is available in three different colors (including a blue brush camo that’ll add a touch of subtle color to your dreary winter wardrobe). — E.A. ($ 1,095, canadagoose.com)

10. Evertherm Down Jacket by Eddie Bauer

I can guarantee you’ve never worn a down jacket quite like this one, and that’s because the “revoluationary” Thindown insulation is a brand-new technology exclusively licensed by Eddie Bauer. Trust me: Though it’s lightweight and packable, this jacket is astonishingly warm—even when I was walking around on a cold, wet autumn day, this put the lockdown on my body heat. The best part: Because the Thindown is evenly distributed throughout the jacket, it doesn’t need stitched segments. You won’t look like the Michelin Man, and the cold stays at bay. Size down if you’re between sizes; even though the Evertherm is relatively trim-fitting, I comfortably wear a small even though I’m normally a medium. — M.R. ($ 249, eddiebauer.com)

6 Lightweight Jackets Every Guy Needs in the Summer

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.

8 Stylish Denim Jackets Made Right Here in America

The denim jacket is an American classic, and its effortless versatility makes it an obvious essential; an anchor piece that’s key to building the complete men’s wardrobe. Initially created in the late 1800s California as workers’ wear, the jean jacket rose as an icon of cowboy culture in the American West, then showed up in the 20th century on the backs of Beat poets, rebel rockers and movie stars. In 1967, Levis launched its iconic trucker jacket, and over the last 50 years it has become an paradigm of American style.
