Planning on investing in a new jacket? There are many styles of jackets for different situations, as well as a big gulf in quality and price. Jackets are a staple of any man’s wardrobe wherever he is, but there are many factors to consider when adding one to your armoury. Below we will look at the various styles of mens jackets available on the market.
A Hooded Jacket (Hoody)
This is likely one of the most casual types of jackets and can be found all over the world, regardless of the climate. Although usually worn to stay warm, you’d be surprised how often they’re worn in even the warmest climates, usually as protection from the sun or because shops and malls compensate for the heat with freezing air conditioners!
Rain jackets for men too, come in various shapes and designs but they all have the same purpose – to keep you dry. It’s easy to find a quality mens waterproof jacket from brands such as Rains, who have simple, clean-cut jackets at affordable prices, proving that high quality doesn’t necessarily have to come with a big price tag. Some of the most effective raincoats may not look the part if they are designed for spending long hours in extreme weathers, so Rains’ jackets are a nice mix of style and practicality.
You may think back to the 60’s and 70’s when leather jackets were seriously in fashion in the US, but they definitely look just as good now! These go great with denim jeans and a white t-shirt, and can really take an outfit to the next level. A good leather jacket will look and feel better with age as it is broken in and the leather becomes more supple.
Denim jackets are a lot lighter than leather jackets but are just as versatile. You can wear it simply over a t-shirt or shirt, or even layer it on top of a hoody for those chillier days. These are great for the autumn season as it gets cooler, and they come in as much variety as you would find with denim pants.
Want to look smart but the occasion doesn’t call for a full-on business suit? Look no further than a blazer worn with denims or slim chinos. Ideal for those summer evenings where you want to look clean and presentable, but want to remain cool at the same time, throwing on a blazer fits all of the above.
Most recently back in style, bomber jackets come in a variety of fits, from slim to oversized and puffy, they all go great with denim jeans. These jackets are known for their durability and originated from the US Air Force.
