Summer doesn’t leave a lot of options for men in the way of wardrobe. That’s why when the air gets crisp and the leaves start changing colors, I get excited. That means it’s coat season and a man can truly make a statement with his outerwear from dressy to casual. We’re going to take a look at some outerwear choices for this fall/winter to match any budget. The beautiful thing about coats is they can make an everyday outfit pop and can be had for anywhere from a hundred bucks to $5000 or more depending how deep you want to dig into your wallet. Take a look at some of these selections.
This Fraser Shearling Fur Biker Jacket in black by Belstaff is truly a beautiful piece. Biker jackets are always in style and this one with its dyed shearling lining really stands out. The quilted shoulders are a nice touch as well as the double buckle side straps. With a price tag of $4,195.00, it’s not cheap but it’s worth the splurge. This can be purchased at www.NeimanMarcus.com.
The pea coat is always a good choice as it never goes out of style, it’s a classic. The Sean John Faux-Leather-Sleeve Military Pea Coat puts a modern spin on the pea coat with the faux leather sleeves which give it a very sleek and cool look. Besides being a gorgeous jacket, it’s a steal $179.00 and an even better deal at the sale price of $144.99. This jacket can be purchased at www.Macys.com.
Every winter coat collection needs one simple staple coat, that cool jacket that turns a nice pair of jeans, a white V-neck tee, and a good pair of boots into an ultra-stylish outfit. That’s where the Theory Belvin VP Voedar Coat comes in. Simple, stylish, and well-made you can’t go wrong. It’s fully lined and hand pockets so it’s sure to keep you warm as well. At $745.00 it’s more than reasonable as this coat is likely to last more than just a couple of winters. It can be found at www.bloomingdales.com.
I’m a huge fan of all jackets quilted, quilted leather is even better. It’s such a cool look and works whether you’re grabbing a cup of coffee or heading out for a night on the town. This black leather quilted jacket by Andrew Marc is a perfect example of what quilted leather should look like. The $795 price tag is well worth it if you ask me. This is a fantastic jacket and Andrew Marc is known for its quality products. It can be found at www.NeimanMarcus.com.
A topcoat is a must have for the fall and winter months. It’s for those days when you’re wearing a tie and still need to keep warm. The topcoat gives a distinguished and sleek look, very fashionable and stylish, an overall classic look. This wool cashmere topcoat from Burberry is an excellent selection. It’s single breasted and crafted in wool and cashmere. It features set-in sleeves and a covered placket. This coat offers a very crisp and tailored look. The price is steep at $1695.00 but will last a good long time if cared for. It can be found at www.us.burberry.com.
