Winter is coming and we are starting to look for jackets and coats that will do the job. We all have some in our wardrobe but we need a few new pieces for the up and coming winter. We have picked 7 of the top jackets and coats for men this season and these items can be matched with most other pieces in your wardrobe. With these jackets you could wear casual jeans, shirt / t-shirt or work wear like some smart trousers and shirt.
7] Boss (£199)
This Hugo Boss coat is the perfect cross-seasonal layer, cut from a lightweight cotton blend. Buttoning up to a single-breasted silhouette, it’s an outerwear option that lends itself to your work wardrobe – simply throw it over a suit whenever the weather looks a little cold and wet. It has 2 interior pockets to store your valuables like your wallet, travel card and passes. It’s ideal for working professionals and to throw over some stylish casual wear.
6] Levi’s (£99)
Levis is a great denim brand and have been pioneering jean jackets since the 1960s. Levi’s Truckers are fit for anything and made to go the distance. For chilly days and transitional weather, this lightweight yet cosy style has you covered. Reimagining one of the label’s most iconic garments with an added soft, warm sherpa insulation, it’ll become one of those pieces you can’t help but turn to time again.
5] Diesel (£165)
There have been many iterations on the bomber jacket of late, but few are as subtly snazzy as Diesel’s Joe. Everything from the stand collar to the ribbed trims and zip-up front is in order, but embellished stars shoot across the whole body, giving it a subtle print, but one that’s easy enough to style when the sky is dark or light. Try yours over a longline tee to throw in proportion play as well.
4] Community Clothing (£185)
The peacoat is a British icon and it’s no coincidence that Community Clothing has turned to it as the core of its new collection. The community-based project is proud to make each of its affordable, yet luxurious, items in the country in factory downtime, supporting skilled workers in the process. This pure wool piece makes a timeless addition to your outerwear collection; what’s more, the padded shoulders strengthen your profile.
3] Our Legacy (£260)
Swedish outfit Our Legacy has mastered the kind of quality utilitarian pieces that dominate menswear at the minute. Made from soft virgin wool yarns with a dash of cashmere for good measure, this jacket is warm but lightweight enough to pull on in a hurry or stow in a backpack for later. Other than the patch pockets and smoky mother-of-pearl buttons, it’s free from embellishment.
2] Armani Jeans (£335)
Outerwear can be as complex as any meticulously crafted three-piece suit, just ask diffusion label Armani Jeans and its ability to spin a resilient shell jacket into a statement piece. Puffed out with a quilted exterior, with carved ribbed trims to bring it back in at the cuffs and hem, this popper-punched layer is equipped with a drawstring tied hood and two zip pockets slanting at the sides to stash your most treasured possessions.
1] Barbour (£100)
Titans of the heritage look, Barbour knows how to meld country living and city style to perfection and its classic quilted jacket is testament to that. Featuring exposed popper fastenings and accented with a tonal corduroy collar, the British label offers the modern gent a jacket they are sure to return to, year after year.[image from selfridges, mrporter]
