5 Outerwear Staples for Any Man's Closet

Our Top 5 Style Picks for Outerwear this Fall & Winter.


Summer is over! Time to pack away the bro tanks and get ready for the fall. Sorry, cotton - looks like wool is taking over for a while. Here are 5 awesome outerwear pieces to (pumpkin) spice up your wardrobe this fall. If you don't already own some of these items, we suggest you start looking - they're worth it!

1.  The Trench Coat

Trench coats and mac coats have definitely made a comeback over the years. Unlike the traditional trench, this season expect to see styles sporting a shorter hem. Most guys are looking for more tailored looks anyway, so this just plays well with popular interest. Classic camel and black are great, but if you're willing, I suggest trying out a deep green, blue, or orange in the interest of fall.

2. The Long Cardigan

Long cardigans offer a comfort and casualness unmet by a lot of other outerwear. I just got one recently and I've been living in it since. Most are made from heavy fabrics, so be careful when you store it. I fold my to prevent gravity from stretching it even longer.

3. The Jumper

Another great piece to keep you prepared for unexpected fall & winter chills is your standard pullover (also known as a jumper to some of you). Jumpers can be paired with a collared shirt for a crisp, well-constructed look. If you're feeling more laidback, I suggest going with the plain tee in a bold color. When the fabric of the tee peeks from beneath your sweater, it'll grab more attention and others will appreciate the good taste.

4. The Bomber/Flight Jacket

Originally created for pilots, this style of jacket has grown to become the staple casual jacket for the men’s fashion world.

5. The Biker Jacket

Biker jackets are pretty much a given and perfect for your late nights out after work or to meet your friends at a bar. Another staple jacket every man should consider for his closet. Dress it up, down, inside out, whatever suits your fancy - you can't really go wrong with, no matter what way you decide to sport it.
