5 Jacket Styles Every Man Should Own


When it comes to outerwear, having a variety of jacket styles in your wardrobe is essential. Not only do different jackets serve different purposes, but they also allow you to mix and match your outfits to create a range of looks. Let’s take a look at five jacket styles that every man should own.

  1. The Bomber Jacket

The bomber jacket is a classic coat that has been around since the early 1900s. It features a fitted silhouette, zipper front, ribbed cuffs and hem, and pockets. Bomber jackets are usually made of a durable, water-resistant material such as nylon or leather and are perfect for those who don’t want to overthink their outfits. If your goal is to take a casual approach to style, the bomber jacket is a must have accessory. Simply pop one on over a t-shirt and jeans to achieve maximum, effortless, cool.

  1. The Denim Jacket

A denim jacket is a wardrobe staple that every man should own. It is typically made of blue denim and features a collar, button front, and pockets. Denim jackets are durable and work well as a layering piece, making them perfect for cooler weather. They, like bomber jackets, are a casual option, but unlike bomber jackets they take a bit more effort to style. A good rule of thumb to remember is blue denim jacket on blue jean pants should see the darkest denim on top. (Hint: fashion rules are meant to be broken. Feel free to experiment to suit your taste.)

  1. The Chore Coat

A chore coat is a type of work jacket that is designed to be functional and durable. It is usually made of heavy-duty fabric such as canvas or denim and features a front button closure, pockets, and a boxy fit. Chore coats are popular for their versatility and rugged style, making them a great choice for both casual and business casual occasions – depending on material/how you style them.

  1. The Harrington Jacket

The Harrington jacket is a classic style that features a zipper front, ribbed cuffs and hem, and a collar. It is typically made of a lightweight, water-resistant material such as cotton or polyester and has a slim fit. The Harrington jacket’s claim to fame seasons are spring and fall. Great cool weather options that work well to maintain clean silhouettes in trendy fashion.

  1. The Camel Coat

A camel coat is a stylish and sophisticated outerwear option that is perfect for cooler weather. It is typically made of a soft, warm fabric such as wool or cashmere and features a neutral camel color. Camel coats are incredibly versatile. They can dress up jeans and a hoodie, add stylish flare to 3-piece suits, and tackle everything in between.
