The perfect winter jacket to buy now? I’ll let you be the judge of that.

OK, you know the drill. We’re kicking 2020 (yes, 2020!) off with a bang as I put forth another entry in our ongoing See Now, Buy Now series, featuring one standout product to shop right now. In the case of today’s post, well, we’re telling you  all about one of the best winter jackets, a pleasingly rugged, cozy and versatile Faherty Brand sherpa jacket that also doubles as a shirt — and a stylish layer in its own right, at that. This Sherpa Lined Wool CPO from Faherty Brand takes its cues from all the right areas — namely, it’s inspired by and named after the warm, classic Chief Petty Officer coats (hence, CPO) worn in the field. It’s one of the most rugged jackets you can buy, yet it retains the classic Faherty Brand aesthetic — laidback, easygoing and yet functional and rugged. Of course, the specs are what really sets this thing apart — as one would expect.

You won’t have any trouble staying warm in this jacket.

Firsst of all, there’s the high-pile fleece lining for extra comfort — that makes this a worthwhile layer to pair up with your favorite henley or a rugged thermal shirt in equal measure. Heck, you can even wear it atop another Faherty Brand shirt for an added layer (quite literally) of perfectly rugged style. The sleeves of this Sherpa Lined Wool CPO from Faherty Brand are also lined with nylon, an added touch that delivers even more comfort. Heck, from the sounds of it, the Sherpa Lined Wool CPO might be as comfortable as wearing, well, a blanket (as Faherty so wisely says). And as if you needed it, the Vintage Blue Plaid pattern is a fun way to shake things up through the doldrums of winter. So, there’s no more time to waste — snag your new favorite jacket right now.

And if there’s a reason why this rugged, classic jacket looks familiar, that’s because, well, it is — this beauty draws inspiration from Pacific Northwester work jackets, and features reinforced stitching at key stress points to live up to that promise. In short, it’s one of the best work jackets out there, packed with six exterior pockets to bolster your EDC potential accordingly. Heck, even the copper oxide shank buttons found on the Flint and Tinder Waxed Drifter Jacket are up to the challenge of repeated wear through winter weather. My suggestion? Grab your favorite henley and your favorite flannel shirt, throw on some tough camp pants and rugged leather boots, then get ready for whatever winter throws your way.

Now, we’ve talked about the need for a closet stocked with versatile outerwear when the weather starts to act up — that includes items like a classic denim jacket or a stylish moto jacket as well as the more technically savvy Bridge & Burn Marshall Jacket; yet, where does the style aspect come into play? Unlike other overly performance-heavy fall jackets, which often lack some style points, the Bridge & Burn Marshall Jacket simply delivers on all fronts.

The rich fall color is a perfect pairing with functional features from Bridge & Burn.

As sold by the fine folks at Huckberry, this is one of the best men’s jackets for fall, all thanks to water and wind-resistant construction (topped off with the excellent Forest color as seen above). Flannel lining and a large hood ensures you’ll stay warm and cozy no matter the situation, while front button-snap hip pockets provide that critical bit of space for your everyday carry essentials. The fact that it’s lined with cotton flannel gives it an added touch of fall-ready style, too — it’s perfect to layer up with your favorite crewneck sweatshirt and slim faded denim, and you can even throw it on over a classic Oxford shirt and tan chinos to head to the office on a breezy commute (just step out with some new leather chukka boots to finish off the look). Of course, when the weekend rolls back around, the Bridge & Burn Marshall Jacket works perfectly to get out of town and hit the trail. Take note — it’s time to layer up.

Style Pick of the Week: Schott NYC Vintage Fitted Motorcycle Jacket

An iconic jacket you need to add to your cart — or your wish list.

Ladies and gentleman, today’s Style Pick of the Week is instantly covetable, highly classic and vying for the top spot on your list of fall style essentials, all at once. It’s the Schott NYC Vintage Fitted Motorcycle Jacket (also known as the Schott Perfecto), and it’s the best leather jacket your money can buy. The even better news? It’s now being sold by your favorite online retailer, Huckberry (they are your favorite, right?). But more on all that in a moment. The Schott Perfecto is a timeless style staple with a reputation that precedes itself, one that dates back decades. You’ve seen this jacket immortalized onscreen by Marlon Brandon and James Dean, and you’ve perhaps seen the classic Schott Perfecto in more recent years on The Killers’ Brandon Flowers (where I first spotted it years ago). In short, it’s an unimpeachable jacket you’ll be very glad you bought heading into fall. And if you’ve been thinking about dipping your toes into the waters of the coveted, badass leather moto jacket, there’s no better purchase to pick up right now (for a price, mind you) than this Schott Vintage Motorcycle Jacket. What sets this iconic jacket apart from the pack? The list is long and varied, my friends.

SHOP: The Schott Perfecto Jacket

The difference comes down to the details — and the details of the Schott Perfecto are simply legendary.

For one, the iconic Schott Perfecto is so named because of the rich, tough-as-nails cowhide Perfecto leather, the kind of leather that’ll adhere to your movements and wearing patterns over time — exactly as the legends who wore this jacket knew so well. It’s all done up in a truly badass and road-ready biker jacket silhouette, with the sort of pedigree and construction that allows one to actually wear it when riding a motorcycle. And if that’s not your thing, the Schott Perfecto adds some seriously cool style to your ensembe, no matter where you take it.  At a rock concert with a classic chambray shirt and slim black denim? This leather moto jacket is your best friend. Heading out for a fall Old Fashioned on a chilly night? Wear this thing over a thermal henley for easygoing-yet-cool style — the 100 percent cotton flannel lining (in a fitting red plaid) adds some warmth for the season. The nickel-plated brass hardware and custom “SCHOTT” snaps are all one-of-a-kind, too. This jacket is built to last for years to come, so it’s absolutely worth the investment. Fear not, because if there’s one thing I can guarantee, it’s that you’re going to wear the heck of out the Schott NYC Vintage Fitted Motorcycle Jacket — year after year after year.

Style Pick of the Week: Wellen Wind Shell

This is the lightweight, dependable jacket to carry you through breezy summer nights.

If you’ve kept up with the happenings here at The Style Guide in the way of summer style essentials, you’ll probably recognize Wellen — and if you’ve dug into this stylish and sustainable brand, perhaps you even recognize the Wellen Wind Shell. We’ve previously covered the Wellen Hemp Polo, and the Wellen Wind Shell delivers on that same blend of eco-conscious style. It’s one of the best men’s jackets for your money’s worth, and although it’s July, that’s no time to scoff at this handsome piece of outerwear (especially considering it’s Fourth of July weekend and all). For breezy summer nights, rainy day hikes or chilly nights around the bonfire, the Wellen Wind Shell is what it’s all about when it comes to a versatile, stylish piece of lightweight outerwear.
The Best Basics. Summer Ready.

So, the specs of this durable rain jacket? We’re talking a lightweight stretch fabric that moves with you (not against you), the kind of jacket that should be quite easy to throw on as you head out the door, and even easier to pack in your go-to weekender bag before you hit the road. It’s equally parts functional and fashionable, and that’s something I always support.

SHOP: The Wellen Wind Shell

A no-frills rain jacket that’s going to go anywhere you go this season.

Crucially, the Wellen Wind Shell is a water-resistant jacket to shed light rain and splashes — the perfect jacket to throw on if the weather takes a turn after a day at the beach or an evening BBQ. But this isn’t just a rain jacket — it’s also something of a handy travel jacket, made with YKK zippers for added durability and featuring bar tacks at stress points for an even more rugged design. Mesh lining also provides critical breathability, so this isn’t simply a rain jacket that’s suffocating. Seriously, the Wellen Wind Shell defies all expectations of what a lightweight summer jacket should be, and that’s not a bad thing to have in your wardrobe. Cinchable hems provide additional protection from the elements, too. And perhaps the best additional feature? The two distinct, versatile, easily wearable colorways — the Deep Sea color shown in this post might just be the prime option to buy, but you can’t go wrong with the dark black-blue Carbon Wind Shell. Either would pair nicely with the kind of casual summer style picks you’ve hopefully got on hand, from slim light wash denim and a classic Oxford shirt to a rugged short-sleeve henley and the perfect pair of summer shorts. Add in the Wellen Wind Shell, and you’re truly all set for whatever the season throws your way.

Style Pick of the Week: Native North Utility Jacket

A functional-yet-versatile jacket to help you get ready for early spring.

Not so fast, my friend — it’s not time to hang up all of your winter style essentials quite yet. In fact, some of those pieces, like the Native North Utilty Jacket shown above, can reliably help you make the transition into early spring. That’s right, the Native North Utility Jacket is one of the best men’s jackets for early spring, and that’s just a fact. The Native North Utility Jacket certainly has a lot going for it, from the classic workwear cut to the handy pockets (perfect for lugging your everyday carry essentials through less-than-optimal spring weather). And it’s a bonus that the Native North Utility Jacket doesn’t quite look like anything you’ve got in your closet when it comes to style — that’s because its roots come from Denmark, that uniquely minimal, quickly growing menswear outpost. Heck, there’s even a Copenhagen Fashion Week now, and you wouldn’t look out of place if you decided to wear the Native North Utility Jacket across the pond. But enough about the runways — what makes this stylish spring jacket right for you? Bear with me.

SHOP: The Native North Utility Jacket

Native North

The three-way collar lends itself to fighting chilly early spring days in style.

For one, it’s not the bulky winter jacket you’ve grown used to wearing over the past several months — this slim wool jacket is linted with cotton (versus an all-wool lining), giving it a bit more breathability and mobility. Point being, you should feel free to layer this rugged workwear jacket over everything from a classic henley and slim faded jeans (don’t forget some Astorflex chukka boots) to a crisp white Oxford shirt and tan chinos. Think of the Native North Utility Jacket like a more stylish, functional blazer replacement (complete with two interior pockets and three exterior pockets). In short, this jacket could also double as the perfect travel jacket, able to be worn on a chilly plane or train, and then out to your destination once you arrive. Again, it’s a uniquely stylish spring jacket that looks quite a bit different from the technical pieces we normally associate with early spring style. That’s only a positive — just because we’re getting away from winter doesn’t mean you don’t need an arsenal full of the best men’s jackets, and again … that’s just a fact! Are you adding the Native North Utility Jacket to your rotation this season? How are you wearing it? Let me know via The Style Guide Facebook. Thanks for reading!

Style Pick of the Week: Taylor Stitch Presidio Jacket in Cognac

The stylish leather jacket you need in your wardrobe this fall. Is it any wonder it comes from Taylor Stitch?

If you take one spin through the pages of The Style Guide, you’ll discover quickly that we sure do love Taylor Stitch. The California-based brand makes darn near everything that stylish guys (like yourself!) need when it comes to menswear essentials, from the Taylor Stitch California Shirt to the Rangeley Sweater to the Jack Short-Sleeve Shirt to, well, the Presidio Jacket as seen at the top of the page.

It can be argued with ease that every guy needs a stylish leather jacket in their wardrobe, particularly as the calendar creeps toward fall.

If you pre-fund the absurdly stylish Taylor Stitch Presidio Jacket right now, that’s exactly when you’ll receive it (October or November, to be specific). What else is there to love about the Presidio Jacket? Plenty, my friends. Plenty. For starters, your new favorite leather jacket is handmade in San Francisco in partnership with Golden Bear — you might recognize the lauded, classic outerwear brand from their work on the amazing Taylor Stitch Moto Jacket. So, the Presidio Jacket has that going for it.

The best construction and materials money can buy — an absurdly great jacket.

The leather is custom tanned, making for a meticulous and careful process that results in one heck of a jacket. The 3oz. Cognac leather used to make the Presidio Jacket results in a distinctive, classic piece of outerwear that’s going to age wonderfully. It’s also cut in a classic bomber jacket silhouette, all the better for wearing with everything from a classic white Oxford and olive chinos to a heather grey henley and black denim. Does that make it one of the best leather jackets for men? Heck, it just might. The lining — made of nylon and grey wool — will keep you toasty without stifling you on chilly fall days, while the welt handwarmer pockets are lined in cotton flannel for even more warmth. Yessir, the Presidio Jacket has a ton going for it, absolutely. It’s simply an absurdly beautiful and classic jacket — the Presidio Jacket is surely going on my fall wish list. And the great thing about it? You’re getting the Presidio Jacket for quite the deal ($200 off the regular price of $998). Again, it’s got classic versatility built right in, too. From an indigo denim shirt and dark blue jeans to a white Oxford, a knit tie and khaki chinos, the Presidio Jacket is destined — destined, I tell you — to become a new menswear essential for you. Easy as that.

Are you taking a chance on pre-funding the Presidio Jacket now? How would you style this thing?
