Doesn’t matter if you are a man or a woman, you need a jacket! You can’t go anywhere without it. I mean, yeah, you could, but would you look that stylish without it? Don’t think so! You see, every man out there needs a jacket. Or more than one! And that because we go to so many events, so we have to have at least one jacket that would make us look good.
Luckily for us, we don’t have to worry about finding the right men jackets and coats. There are plenty of them to choose from and many stores from where we can buy them. Either if you go to a brick and mortar shop or if you buy your coats online, you are bound to find the one you like or you were looking for.
You just have to know what kind of coat or jacket you want or need. If it’s hot outside (summer), obviously, you need something that won’t make sweat like you’re a sauna! On the other hand, if it’s winter, choose a jacket that would keep you warm and that will protect you from rain, wind or snow! Also, think about why you need this jacket or coat. Will you be wearing it at work, parties or any other such events?
Now, I would like to share with you a list of five types of men jackets and coats that every man should have in his wardrobe. Here they are!
1. The blazer
It’s a pretty versatile piece of clothing, which makes it perfect for every occasion. Or almost every occasion… It can be worn for a formal or semi-formal meeting or event, for example. But as I said, if you want to, you can take it with you anywhere you go. It should fit just perfect to the event you’re going to!
When wearing a blazer, men tend to pair it up with a shirt, a sweater and a tie. Some men like to also wear a polo shirt, with open-neck. Other good combos are a blazer, cotton pants and grey flannels!
2. The military jacket
Well, they’re not only for the boys from the navy or the air force. You can buy them and wear them too! Isn’t that badass or what? These jackets are very functional and have big pockets in the front, where you can stash a lot of things, from tools, to fishing lures! They are also very comfortable, mainly do to the way the sleeves join the back of the jacket.
Your movements are not limited and you can wear the military jacket in the summer, since it has a lightweight insulation which, at least theoretically, won’t make you sweat!
3. The rain jacket
What’s it good for? Exactly, to keep you dry when going out on a rainy day! Since they are pretty water-resistant, you shouldn’t get wet. Not many of them have an insulation, but most rain jackets are made of coated nylon and/or Gore-Tex. If you have a rain pant, combine it with a rain jacket to make yourself waterproof!
4. The trench coat
Some trench coats are made of leather, but usually, they are made of cotton poplin and cotton drill. Nevertheless, all these materials offer good protection against water. The trench coat is a long coat, usually reaching below the knees and is fitted with an insulated lining. Therefore, it can be worn both in warm, as well as cold weather.
5. The wind breaker
They help you stay dry and protect you from the wind if you need to go out in a storm. Some wind breakers do have insulation, while others don’t. The fabrics they’re made of are synthetic and shiny. Might also include a hood. Can be paired with a pair of wind breaker trousers!
