Bundle Up: A Men’s Jacket Guide

Bundle Up: A Men’s Jacket Guide

Now that winter is rolling around again, it’s time to start bundling up. Here are some styles of jackets that you can check out this season:

 

1. The peacoat is a classic style that looks and feels great and will last a long time. It can be worked into casual and more formal outfits easily. However, if it gets too cold, peacoats usually may not be warm enough. They’ll suffice for a walk from the parking garage to the office but may not hold up against a snowstorm. Buy the peacoat below for $295!

2. Parkas are hooded coats, sometimes lined with fur. They’re waterproof and often insulated. Even as temperatures dip down toward arctic temperatures, parkas will keep you warm — in fact, the Inuit people of the Arctic designed the first parkas. The loose, unconstrained fit of parkas will give you a hip, streetwear edge. Buy the parka below for $285.25!

3. Bomber jackets have been becoming trendier lately. They can be a fun, easy jacket to wear with interesting styles and fits and a zipper along the front. Originally designed for pilots, bomber jackets are also known as flight jackets. Around the 1970s, bomber jackets gained popularity in different subcultures – particularly with skinheads and scooterboys. Bomber jackets can be a fun choice but may not be warm enough in the coldest temperatures. Buy the bomber below for $111.10!

4. Shell jackets are great for layering and avoid the need for a larger, thick coat. You can wear what you normally would, but just layer up with a shell jacket and perhaps a flannel or two. Shell jackets are versatile in terms of body type suitability and will hold up against wind and water. Buy the shell below for $149!
