The 10 Outerwear Styles Every Guy Should Know

Bombers, field jackets, topcoats, and more to keep you looking sharp as the temperatures dip.

There are plenty of reasons to be thankful for rainy weather. Namely that summer, with all of its attendant heat and humidity, has relinquished its hold on our weather—and our style. Which means that it's time again to invest in a great coat.

The Denim Jacket 

Levi's Trucker Denim Jacket

Denim is a pretty-much-perfect go-to for transitional jackets. And no one does it better than Levi's.  

The Weatherproof Jacket 


Everlane The Elements Jacket

Get a jacket that can handle all of those unexpected shifts. 

The Field Jacket 

J.Crew Cotton Field Jacket

A field jacket is also a staple piece. Break it out the same day you bust out your boots. 

The Bomber 

DSTLD Cotton Bomber Jacket

An easygoing cotton bomber works for every type of style.

The Lightweight Jacket 

Baracuta for J.Crew G9 Harrington

Baracuta's Harrington jackets are made to take on all styles and every element. This one comes in an extra-versatile olive green, too. 

The Mackintosh 

Selected Homme Navy Trench Coat

Selected Homme calls this a trench coat—but thanks to the covered placket and single-breasted silhouette, it's really more of a mackintosh. All good. The two are sartorial cousins, anyways, and the mac is a little more modern and easier for most guys to wear.


The Overshirt 

AMI Drill Overshirt

An overshirt—for days where you don't quite need a full jacket.  

The Leather Jacket 

Buck Mason Bruiser Moto Jacket

A simple leather jacket. Of course.  

The Double-Breasted Overcoat 


Calvin Klein 205W39NYC Plaid Overcoat

Overcoats are a great investment. Double-breasted ones are great for wearing over a suit.   

The Single-Breasted Topcoat 

Saint Laurent Chesterfield Coat

A little less fabric and oomph than the double-breasted version, but just as sharp and perfect for daily trips to and from the office.
