10 best men’s coats

Quite frankly coats are reason enough to not mind kissing goodbye to summer and embracing autumn with open arms. The feel of being cocooned in a coat, up a mountain or in a street food market, is hands down one of our favourite things about the upcoming season. Before we get too carried away, here’s our top ten coats to invest in now. Summer? What summer?

 

Shop Coats & Jackets

 


1. The wax jacket



Barbour Icons Men's Beacon Sports

 

Daniel Craig stepped into menswear history when he wore Barbour’s Sports Jacket in Skyfall. It sold out straight away but we can all now get our hands on a piece of the action with this reinvented iteration – part of Barbour’s 125th anniversary collection.


Barbour, Icons Men's Beacon Sports, £399

 


2. The camel coat



Ben Sherman Camel Melton Overcoat

 

Camel screams sophistication, classiness and know-how and this buttery number says all of that in abundance. For work, for the family gathering, for that romantic, winter rendezvous walking over a twinkly bridge… we can picture it all with this coat. 


Ben Sherman, Camel Melton Overcoat, £179

 


3. The puffer jacket



The North Face The La Paz Jacket

 

Long-line puffer coats were a massive trend on the autumn/winter 2019 catwalks. If the idea of an oversized duvet-for-the-road feels a little on the toasty side, try this short and smart iteration from The North Face.


The North Face, The La Paz Jacket, £200

 


4. The utility jacket



Penfield Hooded Jacket

 

Iconic, outdoor brand Penfield have waltzed straight from the forests of New England to the urban jungle with gear that works for both the Pyrenees and Peckham exceptionally well. We’re big fans on this workwear jacket.


Penfield, Hooded Jacket, £135

 


5. The trucker jacket



Farah Cord Trucker Jacket

 

A trucker jacket does two things very well. It’s got easy, authoritative cool and a soft side – pretty much how you want to come across in most situations. It'll make a great first impression.


Farah, Cord Trucker Jacket, £135

 


6. The parka



Ted Baker Gouda Parka Jacket

 

When the weather calls, a parka comes running, keeping you toasty (and stylish) in everyone’s favourite Inuit throwback piece. Your Q4 wardrobe needs this.


Ted Baker, Gouda Parka Jacket, £399

 


7. The leather jacket



AllSaints Taro Leather Biker Jacket

 

AllSaints, as we all know, make very good leather jackets, which is handy because leather was all over the AW19 catwalks. This one is on the sleek and minimal side and will go with everything.


AllSaints, Callon Jacket, £348

 


8. The mac



Farah Miro Hooded Mac Coat

 

Macs mean business. Not only does their fabric have protectionist vibes and their silhouette’s straight but not too structured (perfect for running to a board meeting), but they have serious style credentials. The minimalist, Scandi style set have got us all reaching for one.


Farah, Miro Hooded Mac Coat, £150

 


9. The bomber jacket



Libertine Libertine Contrast Bomber Jacket

 

It’s autumn. You’ve swapped Pret’s salads for soups but aren’t quite ready to turn on the central heating just yet. We get it. For this seasonal limbo land, a bomber jacket comes into its own as the not-too-hot-not-too-cold piece. 


Libertine Libertine, Contrast Bomber Jacket, £263

 


10. The grey overcoat 



AllSaints Foley Coat

 

Admittedly, we wear a lot of black and navy. So, if your outfits are mainly going to rotate around those two colourways, throw a new hue into the mix with a grey coat. It'll add a dash of urban interest to otherwise moody ensembles.


AllSaints, Foley Coat, £348
