See Now, Buy Now: This Wellen Chore Coat from Huckberry is a Rugged Winter Style Upgrade

Best men's chore coat for winter.

There comes a time in every season when your wardrobe starts to feel a little stale, even if you’ve done your best to stock it with, say, a selection of the best men’s winter jackets. Of course, that’s where your good friends (and my good friends!) at Huckberry come into play, with plenty of men’s style essentials to shake up even the worst case of the winter doldrums. I’d imagine you’re well-acquainted with the retailer’s rugged-meets-refined offerings, but a refresher is never a bad thing — that’s certainly true when it comes to shopping one of the best men’s chore coats, the Wellen Blanket Chore Coat.

It’s got all of the trappings of a perfectly rugged, durable chore coat, yet it’s been done up in a warm yet surprisingly lightweight, unlined polyester-wool-nylon blend. That makes the Wellen Blanket Chore Coat a nice layer to throw on over a fisherman sweater or a more thick-knit jumper, or even one of the best men’s flannel shirts (both of which you can find at Huckberry, of course). And the Wellen Blanket Chore Coat has plenty more going for it beyond just that toasty (and again, lightweight!) winter fabric.

Best chore coat for men.

Notably, the Wellen Blanket Chore Coat is modeled after old-school, vintage blankets with vivid, rich patterns — take your pick from a Jacquard Stripe option or two handsome plaid variations. The Wellen Blanket Chore Coat also boasts all the classic trappings of a rugged chore coat, including two button-front patch pockets, an interior pocket for your phone, and a patch chest pocket for even more EDC storage.

All of those features turn the Wellen Blanket Chore Coat into a highly useful yet polished winter coat, one you can even wear in place of a blazer over your favorite Oxford shirt if you so choose. Best of all, the Wellen Blanket Chore Coat is priced fairly at just under $200, an agreeable price to pay to shake up your winter wardrobe. We’ll see you out there, my friends.

Best winter puffer jacket for men.

In case you needed a reminder, it’s still very much winter outside, it’s still quite frigid, and you still need to layer up on the daily with one of the best men’s winter jackets. If you feel your rotation is a bit stale or happens to be missing that crucial final piece (like a stylish lightweight puffer jacket), you’ve come to the right place this weekend. And helpfully, all signs point to Huckberry and the standout Huckberry Winter Sale. That’s where you’ll find the Relwen Windzip Jacket, one of the most reliably rugged winter jackets for men on the market.

Why spend your hard-earned time and cash on the Relwen Windzip Jacket? It’s quite obvious, is it not? Let’s count the ways.

Relwen Windzip Jacket

Relwen makes gear inspired by old-school military and outdoor silhouettes, which means its pieces are nothing if not classic and functional, yet stylish. The Relwen Windzip Jacket draws design inspiration from throwback outdoor jackets, the kind your father might have worn on a family camping trip, yet with plenty of modern elements thrown in for good measure.

Crucially, this stylish puffer jacket uses down-alternative insulation for warmth in chilly conditions, and the utility of the Relwen Windzip Jacket only gets better from there.

Helpfully, the Relwen Windzip Jacket features a nylon and spandex exterior for abrasion resistance, yet it’s also water-resistant when the going gets tough. The stand-up collar delivers added protection on breezy days, while the black hardware is a sleek and durable touch. For good measure, a large chest pocket provides useful EDC space. And to round things out quite handsomely, you can find the Relwen Windzip Jacket in four highly wearable colors. The next time you need a go-anywhere jacket this winter (and spring!), reach for the Relwen Windzip Jacket — and score it on sale right now.

Style Pick of the Week: Satchel & Page Leather Bomber Jacket – Most Stylish Men’s Leather Jacket

Best leather bomber jacket for men.

From time to time, it can feel great to splurge on a hard-earned menswear pick-up from one of the best leather goods brands on the market — a purchase like one of the best leather bomber jackets. Sure, a leather bomber jacket isn’t an absolute, 100 percent wardrobe must-have in the same manner as, say one of the best winter puffer jackets or a stylish pair of snow boots, yet you should still give it a fair shake. After all, it comes from the same brand that makes your favorite weekender bag (that’d be Satchel & Page, folks).

When you find the right one — like the luxe, impossibly cool and extremely well-made Satchel & Paige Leather Bomber Jacket — it’s a mighty fun, incredibly wool wardrobe investment. And every so often, it’s also fun to shake things up and spend — wisely, of course! — on one of the best leather jackets for men. Again, this handsome, refined, stylish shearling bomber jacket isn’t a true necessity, but the Satchel & Paige Leather Bomber Jacket is an awfully hard style splurge to pass up (if you ask your Brooklyn style writer, that is).

Of course, the Satchel & Paige Leather Bomber Jacket is a splurge, as we talked about earlier, at nearly $700. You should also pay close attention to the company’s sizing notes. Yet, if you think this jacket checks the proper boxes for you — and if you think it’ll hold up and get better the more you wear it! — then the instantly iconic Satchel & Paige Leather Bomber Jacket is a worthy investment this season (and beyond).

Yes, believe it or not, I just returned from another trek to London — and Scotland, for good measure — my third time in the U.K. since the end of June. This time around, I visited the iconic Balvenie Distillery as part of an upcoming story on an epic new Scotch launch for, where I’ve been keeping plenty busy with daily stories.

See Now, Buy Now: The Flint and Tinder Indigo Waffle Trucker is the Best Transitional Jacket to Buy Now

You’re not alone if you feel like it’s a touch too early to be talking about early fall style essentials — aren’t we still smack-dab in the middle of August and the dog days of summer, after all? We sure are, but before you know it (certainly within a month), you might start to feel a slight chill in the air, and that’s why you need to stock up early on one of the best men’s transitional jackets. Who better to answer the call than Huckberry, makers of the famous, much-loved and fast-selling Flint and Tinder Trucker Jacket? They’ve got a few tricks up their sleeves though, via a new take on the rugged Flint and Tinder Waxed Trucker: The change-up in question comes courtesy of the Flint and Tinder Indigo Waffle Trucker, a new variation that toes the line between late summer breezes and heavy-duty fall and winter layering.

That it does so in perfectly handsome, rugged fashion is a huge bonus, and it only gets better from there. It’s one of the best men’s trucker jackets for that very reason: You can wear it just about anywhere, from one last summer getaway to the mountains or downtown to get coffee on a dewy morning. The 100 percent cotton waffle fabric is a textured, breathable weave, moreso than the burlier, heavier Flint and Tinder Trucker Jacket (which is also lined in cotton flannel). To get right to the point, the Flint and Tinder Indigo Waffle Trucker bridges the gap quite nicely between the two

And because it’s indigo dyed, as the name so aptly calls out, it’s going to break in over time like your favorite pair of indigo jeans (coincidentally, another style staple you could also pick up at Huckberry). Let’s talk details, too – the Flint and Tinder Indigo Waffle Trucker has proper details to go along with the best of ’em. Those details include chambray-lined pockets and a chambray-lined back yoke. And as ever, custom F&T buttons separate the rugged and dependable Flint and Tinder Indigo Waffle Trucker from other jackets in your closet. Come early fall, you’ll be glad you picked this jacket up. But once it shows up at your door, you’ll want to break it in right away.

Everlane denim jacket

A rugged, classic denim trucker jacket to wear all winter long.

Let’s get right into it today. If you read the blog, you know that San Francisco-based Everlane delivers on some of the best men’s style essentials across the board, be it a classic cardigan for men or a rugged flannel shirt. Add another item to that list today however, because the Everlane Fleece-Lined Denim Trucker Jacket is, as the headline so wisely points out, quite possibly your new favorite casual winter jacket.


That’s a lofty title to claim, to be sure, but as with all things Everlane, it sseems to live up to that billing. Keep in mind that this rugged fleece denim jacket is nearly sold out, so you’d better act quickly if you hope to scoop it up, but know that other Everlane men’s denim jackets are just as ready for winter layering — perhaps even atop your favorite hooded sweatshirt). The point is, this classic denim jacket amps things up a notch from the typical silhouette for the winter months, what with its warm polyester fleece lining, and that makes it a worthy change of pace from, say, your classic navy peacoat from time to time.

The Everlane Fleece-Lined Denim Trucker Jacket is every bit as well-constructed as your standard issue denim jacket, featuring a rich blue 100 percent organic cotton exterior and classic trucker jacket styling. Contrast stitching and hardware make this jacket decidedly more casual than, say, an all-black denim jacket, but that’s not a bad thing. The warm fleece lining also means you can wear it as your sole outer layer, whereas an unlined indigo denim jacket might work more as a mid-layer (again, perhaps underneath your classic navy peacoat).

But yet again, the Everlane Fleece-Lined Denim Trucker Jacket comes through in the clutch, giving you the kind of layering ability other jackets only dream about. Wear this atop a rugged thermal henley with black Everlane jeans and tan boots for a rugged change of pace, or go just a bit dressier by teaming the Everlane Fleece-Lined Denim Trucker Jacket with your favorite chambray shirt and grey cotton chinos. The best casual winter jackets for men have plenty of special qualities that elevate them above the everday, and this classic denim trucker jacket certainly checks all the right boxes. With that in mind, go ahead and shop accordingly, folks.

The Thursday Buy: This Shearling Jacket from MR. PORTER Is a Seasonal Splurge Worth Buying

MR. PORTER review

A serious wardrobe upgrade that looks truly great any way you wear it.

What’s the first thing you think of when you think of MR. PORTER? Is it luxury menswear at prices both accessible and investment-worthy? It should be, especially as we roll into the holiday season — the holidays are indeed different this year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t put your best foot forward in other ways when you (safely) exit the house. MR. PORTER has long been known for stocking and selling some of the best men’s jackets on the planet, from retailers far and wide — and its own in-house line MR. P is nothing to sneeze at, either. This MR. P Shearling-Trimmed Bomber Jacket just might take the cake as far as seasonal splurges and a great way to treat yourself heading into the holidays (if you feel so inclined). Make no mistake, this rugged-yet-refined shearling bomber jacket falls squarely within the realm of “investment-level outerwear,” seeing as you’d be ponying up more than $500 for a jacket that might not be a daily go-to. And yet, who’s to say you can’t rock this jacket on the daily, especially with staples like dark denim, a grey crewneck sweatshirt and brown leather moc toe boots?

A super-premium outerwear upgrade to wear all winter long.

It’s a one-of-a-kind offering in a seasonally friendly color that features an internal pocket for storage of EDC essentials, plus outer flap pockets to handle small holiday items (or a flask, perhaps). Call it one of the best jackets for men if you value staying warm in style, or call it a true splurge, but either way, there’s no denying the type of daily style and value it’ll offer. And you can even find ways to dress up the MR. P Shearling-Trimmed Bomber Jacket, perhaps with grey wool trousers, the aforementioned brown leather moc toe boots and a white Oxford shirt for day-to-night holiday style. When it comes down to it, that’s all you can ask for from one of the best men’s jackets, and that’s all you should need to ask. Cheers, my friends.
