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.

america

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).

Freemans Sporting Club

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?

SHOP: The MR. P Shearling-Trimmed Bomber Jacket 

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.
