A Checklist of Jackets Every Man Should Own

Every season is jacket season.

It's never the wrong time to buy a jacket. Rainy days, cold nights, and too-intense office ACs happen all year long. And it's worth building out your assortment too, so you have a jacket ready for any need. Here are 11 that will complete your wardrobe.

A Fun Jacket 

You have to have a jacket that's just for fun. A vintage one is never a bad call. '90s Nylon Jacket, 

A Coach's Jacket      

Coach's jackets are great lightweight options. The athletic silhouette gives you freedom to lean into a bright color. Coach Jacket by Reebok, 

A Track Jacket      

For further athletic vibes, track jackets are always good—especially when they're a Tommy Jeans take. '90s Track Jacket by Tommy Jeans,  

A (Cotton) Moto Jacket     

For when it's not cool enough for a leather jacket. Or you just want something a little more price-conscious. Cotton Moto Jacket by DSTLD,  

A Trucker Jacket      

Trucker jackets have a great fitted feel to them, which allows you to play around with color and pattern. Like this pink (and slightly tie-dyed) one, for example. Trucker jacket by Stussy,  

A Pullover Jacket      

For rain, wind, and everything in between. Hooded Jacket by Nike ACG, 

A Blouson      

Blousons—think lighter-weight bombers—are easy for transitional seasons or unpredictable days. Blouson Jacket by Polo Ralph Lauren, 

A Denim Jacket      

Denim jackets are another absolute essential. And Paige's Scout jacket is so soft, it feels more like wearing a hoodie. Scout Denim Jacket by Paige,  

A Chore Jacket      

Perfect for when you just need a little something extra, but don't want to go as formal as a blazer. Cotton Moleskin Chore Jacket by Le Mont Saint Michel, 


A Leather Jacket      

A good leather jacket is an essential, and you can't go wrong with an Allsaints biker. Cargo Biker Jacket by Allsaints,  

A Bomber      

Bombers are good. Bombers in fun colors are even better. Monaco Bomber Jacket by Sandro,
