When you find a jacket that looks on paper to be well-suited for adventures and for fall and winter weather, it’s of the essence that you jump right on it. It sounds simple on paper, but it’s worth a reminder that the best chance to get one of the best men’s jackets for fall and winter weather is actually right here, right now. The jacket in question as today’s Style Pick of the Week is the Buck Mason Down Expedition Jacket, an amped-up offering that pushes the retailer’s rugged, classic Americana menswear into more technical, yet no less stylish, territory. If you read the blog on the regular, you’ve likely come across a Buck Mason review or two (to say the least). And as we head into chilly winter weather, it’s worth going back to the brand and picking up what could be one of the best men’s jackets for fall and winter weather. That’s a bold claim, but remember: It’s Buck Mason we’re talking about here, and the brand certainly delivers. For starters, it’s certainly the perfect jacket if you want to blend the bold and rugged with the functional and technical.
The Buck Mason Down Expedition Jacket takes what you love about the brand (modern updates to classic silhouettes, among other key attributes) and goes a step further, using vintage design inspiration and materials that fit right in with 2021. Crucially, those modern design touches include durable water resistant coating and the use of warm, responsible 650 fill-power traceable duck down. In short, that means the versatile-as-can-be Buck Mason Down Expedition Jacket is ready to layer up every day, either atop your business casual attire or out on the trail or a cabin getaway. And there’s a lot more where that came from.
This jacket takes its cues from cold-weather expedition jackets, hence the name – and hence additional design moves like a slimmer waist and yet a relaxed fit through the chest and sleeves (all the better for layering up during intense fall and winter weather). The Buck Mason Down Expedition Jacket delivers just about everything you could ask for in an adventure-minded jacket, including fleece-lined hand-warmer pockets, a draw cord hood and waist — for added protection against chilly winds — and small touches like leather adjusters on the hood itself. If you thought the American-inspired brand might have foregone the details in favor of a more technical focus, well, think again, my friends. The Buck Mason Down Expedition Jacket delivers both style and functionality in spades.
Just because inclement weather hits doesn’t mean that style falls by the wayside, and the Buck Mason Down Expedition Jacket takes care of that quite handily. The Coyote color is rich and versatile, able to play nicely alongside black or blue jeans, grey canvas work pants and brown or black leather work boots. Throw it on atop a Buck Mason sweater, then team that combination with some classic Buck Mason jeans, and you’ve got an #OOTD ready for both adventures on and off the trail — or just around town. Yes indeed, the Buck Mason Down Expedition Jacket will get the job done, keep you mighty warm and look positively great through it all.
