Let me jump right into today’s Style Pick of the Week with some words of wisdom, so to speak: If you’re not familiar with Overland men’s jackets (and more), then your entire winter wardrobe might just be about to change. That’s because Overland is taking things to the next level as far as crafting the best men’s winter jackets is concerned, and that echoes through its entire product line — including the refined-yet-rugged Overland Gabriel Shearling Sheepskin Coat shown above. As we cruise through the end of February, perhaps you’re still shrugging off the impacts of a long-running winter, or battling through yet another snowstorm. And if you want to shake up your outerwear game with both style and function in mind, you can hardly go wrong with one of the best shearling jackets for men. Overland really is one-of-a-kind in that regard, a family-owned company launched in the 1970s in New Mexico that now makes some of the finest men’s jackets (and women’s jackets, and more!) on the planet. Heck, Overland has grown into a company with 16 stores and of course, one heck of a rotation of the best jackets for men, period. But back to the Overland Gabriel Shearling Sheepskin Coat, of course. It’s an updated take on the trucker jacket, fashioned with a super-warm shearling sheepskin interior.
As one might expect, crafting a jacket like the Overland Gabriel Shearling Sheepskin Coat, using that sort of incredibly premium material comes with a price tag ($795 at Overland). However, it’s the sort of investment that’ll pay off in spades. Think of this like a winter upgrade over your traditional jean jacket, with the same serious style points available to you. In my mind, you can wear this rugged trucker jacket just like an indigo denim jacket, starting with slim black jeans and a thermal henley for added winter warmth. You can also layer it over a classic fisherman’s sweater for even more comfort in the cold, while everything from burgundy corduroys to slim blue jeans are up for grabs here. If you want to go ultra-refined, considering pairing it with wool suit trousers and classic moc toe boots for eye-catching winter style. Details like flap chest pockets and slanted hip pockets complete the classic trucker jacket design. This is the sort of jacket you can wear on wintry park strolls or market visits, or to battle the elements as you enjoy an outdoor beer garden brew. When you find one of the best jackets for men, period, you should wear it as often as you can.
