E. Tautz Zip Up Tweed Harrington Jacket

Harrington_Tweed_Zip_Up_02-tile
I went through quite a process deciding whether or not this Harrington jacket was worth the cost. Check out the close-up shot on the way through to see what I did--a beautiful lining and perfectly-finished interior, clearly handmade (in Britain), with texture and drape and contrast. I think I'm in love. This jacket was inspired by an E. Tautz archive piece, made for Colonel Chuck Yeager, who was...

Harmon_grey_parka_01-horz
The Harmon Parka at Oak is available right now for just under $500, perfect for anyone who wants to get a head start on winter. This parka, with Harmon's notable "artisanal" dyeing process and a lot of decorative additions on the draped front, is a surefire way to get some compliments on a winter piece. Keep in mind that this has a loose fit and won't look like a slim cut against your frame....

Consider Moleskin

For those concerned with the associations created by particular garments, casual jackets can be a nightmare. Corduroy is for professors, tweed for grandparents and leather for wannabe greaseballs. A Harrington jacket screams mod (or rebel lacking a cause), denim is the eighties and suede looks like it should have cowboy tassels. And even the most sartorially ignorant know...

Victim Riders Jacket

Victim Riders Jacket 01
You can't have enough classic jackets, and that includes moto ones. The Victim Rider is molded from nubuck leather, and while it might be simple, it's one of those pieces that could very well stick around for a decade (or longer) if you give it the right care. Talon zips throughout, and a slightly slim fit. [via hypebeast]

Endovanera Rider Jacket

A shapely spring jacket in black? Certainly there's room in your closet for one of these, especially since it's one that you'll be funneling into your ensembles for seasons to come. The cotton construction of this jacket allows for longtime wearing through summer nights, and a tailored shape isn't going to make you look boxy and/or chunky. A must-have in s-m-l-xl. [$396 at tobi]

Endovanera Backpull Jacket

Cinch that jacket up and give yourself a fresh figure. This Endovanera choice has high-fashion details like distinctive venting and trimmed-down touches. If you think you couldn't possibly stomach another coat this season, keep in mind that this one isn't just an investment piece, but a timely purchase that incorporates a high percentage of cotton to keep things lightweight through spring....

Marc by Marc Jacobs Mini Houndstooth Blazer

Posted by

photo37754-tile
It's amazing what a basic blazer can do when it's shapely and smart, don't you think? This selection from Marc by Marc Jacobs, available at ssense, has a slim fit in an almost boy-type shape, and you'll get tons of those "cute and hip" style points just for that. A single back vent and a skinny notched collar are expected, but a star-patterned lining is not. 100% cotton shell in sizes...

Joyrich Hooded Jacket

Posted by

joyr-mo40_v1-big-tile
Glossy, crinkly red luxe from Joyrich is a perfect hoodie selection: it might be traditional in shape, but the fabric and design details are far from it. Statement red communes with a long front zip, zip front pockets and one zip coin purse, and a contrasting black-lined hood. While it's probably best to avoid wearing any more fire engine red to keep this one standing out, the rest is up to...

Diesel Jannario Jacket

Posted by

41129892vl_lar1_1-tile
Waterproof fabric is disguised by Diesel design details that make a piece stand out: you might be protected from the rain, but you'll also be shielded from style spies and critics. This modern piece makes the most of what it's got, from a bold zip closure to a slouchy hood. Three pockets, 100% nylon, and pretty rough-and-tumble for the concrete jungle. Get it from Diesel up to XXL. [$290 at...

Morphine Generation Waxed Hoodie

Posted by

16139412_01_b-tile
Waxy outer layer? Never thought it could look this good, until I ran into the Morphine Generation Waxed Hoodie at Urban Outfitters. Careful glossing adds a touch of unexpected shine to a thick cotton shell, but the inside is way more comfort-friendly. Since it's an Urban Outfitters exlcusive, you won't need to go price hunting or shop around. Just aim and click for sizes M-XXL with a regular...

Rag & Bone Svedke Coat

Posted by

ragb-mo17_v3-horz
Rag & Bone's got us salivating all over our keyboards. Straight from Revolve's Fashion Forward site, we get treated to slim-line plaid with button up front and back pockets and a button front. A retro '60s shape continues with a small mandarin collar and close-fitting sleeves, so forgo that extra-bulky sweater and wrap yourself in a scarf instead. 90% wool, 10% nylon, and 100% stylish. Sizes...

To-orist Black Wax Blazer

Posted by

to-mo3_v1-big-horz
This crazy waxed blazer from UK-based To-orist has got us craving a whole new kind of men's jacket. Instead of plain ol' fabric, this one at Revolve gets a push in a new direction. All-black and mixed fibers make this a good piece for wearing on a fellas night out or on a date-- the choice is yours, because this blazer was cut for comfort without looking baggy. Danceable, if necessary, but...

Maharishi Loden Blanket Bomber

Posted by

maha-mo12_v1-horz
Bomber jackets are back, but they are stylish enough to hold their own in the world of peacoats and overcoats. Look for a plaid jacket this bold, and you'll be on the search for a while. Save time with this 50/50 wool-alpaca blend in tonal grays that you can wear with jeans. A good addition for the cold-weather dweller who already has his mainstays, and available in sizes S-XL.  Stylish and...

Wrath Arcane Trooper Jacket in Gray

Posted by

wrat-mo32_v1-horz
A status coat in unassuming gray--that's a creative option for the style-deprived! If you're looking to gift yourself one thing (that goes with everything), this jacket is a good buy. It looks like it goes with everything-- because it does-- and its highly stylized shape is unique. Traditional outercoat details commune with quirks like the tab snap closure. S-XL. [$297 at revolve]

Bblessing Grey Wool Banded Collar Coat

Posted by

47677a-tile
Long, lean, and a little bit mean, this long grey wool coat is a timeless piece to keep away the cold. A casual 100% cotton lining will actually keep your warmer under all that wool (100% wool, to be exact), and beats out acetate and synthetic blends any day. Throw this one on, and fast, for a refined, defined look that lasts. Quite possibly a bblessing exclusive. [$785 at bblessing]

Filippa K James Check Jacket

Posted by

fili-mo30_v1-tile
Tres Nerd Chic! This plaid jacket has a bold look and lines that will get you a second glance (and maybe a third). Fashioned with front pockets and a front button closure, the Filippa K grey winner is quite the blazer for the funky dresser who still loves himself a sport coat or two. Wool/cotton blend starting in size 46. [$748 at revolve]

Public School Grove Jacket

Posted by

psch-mo20_v1-tile
A long jacket has one awesome perk that's purely practical-- it keeps your ass warm. After all those brisk bomber-jacket days, why don't you treat your backside and keep it roasty this time around? This Public School jacket features a shell in poly/cotton and detachable leather fingerless gloves, and comes with a hood, too. Sizes M and XL. [$470 at revolve]

Costume National Two-Button Corduroy Blazer

Posted by

cncc-mo35_v1-tile
A fuzzier blazer for winter doesn't need to be fashioned from sweaterish material. This one from Costume National is fashioned with courduroy accents, and it still features all the trad blazer details, including welt pockets, a button front closure, and a full lining. You csan get it in sizes starting at 48, in this featured brown pattern. [$866 at revolve]

Urban Outfitters C Collection Prince Pea Jacket

Posted by

prince-pea-jacket_uo_msp1
Plaid's got a little more country, but in the English-shooting kind of way, thanks to Urban Outfitters. A bold red and black plaid makes this lightweight canvas jacket look more robust (perfect for those of us in balmier weather) and has a double-breasted shape to widen the chest. Exclusive Urban piece features dual vents and partial lining. [$148 at urban outfitters]
