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.

Style Pick of the Week: Outerknown Paz Cord Trucker

A cozy, rugged jacket you’ll want to wear all winter long.

Striking the right balance between cozy and comfortable, rugged-yet-stylish, and also sustainable-yet-fashionable … well, it’s a tough act to conquer. And yet, that’s what the good folks at Outerknown have done with the Outerknown Paz Cord Trucker, a perfectly rugged winter jacket that delivers all the warmth and style you could possibly need. Crucially, it’s also a refreshing change of pace from a bulky winter parka or a thermal puffer jacket (although you very well might need both of those in your rotation, too).

It’s the kind of workhorse jacket you won’t regret having when it comes time to head out on a Friday night — the classic trucker jacket silhouette is timeless and nearly speaks for itself. Yes indeed, the Outerknown Paz Cord Trucker is stylish without going too far over the top, and that’s exactly the kind of jacket we so love here at The Style Guide. Oh, and in terms of sustainable style? Outerknown continues to take the cake.

SHOP: The Outerknown Paz Cord Trucker

Available in two versatile, neutral colors.

Outerknown crucially focuses on amping up the classics with materials like organic cotton and a focus on using less water in its production — the result is gear that’s as eco-conscious as it is stylish. Case in point: The hemp they’ve used to make this corduroy fabric is both durable and yet perhaps the perfect crop, given that it strengthens the soil in which it’s grown. Heck, the polyester fill and sherpa lining are also made from recycled materials — when’s the last time you heard of a rugged winter jacket that can do all of that at once? Oh, and it goes without saying that the Outerknown Paz Cord Trucker also looks as great as you’d expect — wear this tough trucker jacket atop your favorite henley and a classic flannel shirt for plenty of warmth and winter-friendly style, or keep the Outerknown Paz Cord Trucker handy with a timeless chambray shirt and expertly faded denim. The trucker jacket styling is akin to that of a trusted denim jacket, so you can rest assured that it wears with most of your closet with relative ease — and that’s what you want from one of the best winter jackets, after all. Bundling up with sustainable style in mind? That’s as good as it gets for winter.

#OOTD: How to Layer Up with a Trucker Jacket for Winter

‘Tis still the season to … layer up with winter style essentials, is it not? And so we begin another #OOTD, taking on a tricky question that can spring up during the doldrums of winter: “Do I really have to wear that jacket again?” Maybe it’s the coat you always wear. Maybe it’s got you feeling like you need a change of pace. Fear not, my friends — I’m here to present the humbler trucker jacket as one of the best new pieces of outerwear you can layer up with. Particularly if it’s not snowing like crazy, and temperatures aren’t in the single digits, it pays to have a whole host of go-to winter style picks that are just different enough from the everyday — in this case, we’re talking about an American-made fleece trucker jacket that’ll keep you warm and toasty when paired with, say a classic long-sleeve shirt from Buck Mason and a rugged denim shirt. It’s a solid change of pace from the ordinary, and it can always be fun to switch things up. The rest of this look is as classic as can be, perfect for a laidback weekend outing, an afternoon at your favorite burger bar, a quick weekend getaway, and perhaps, just maybe … super-casual Friday at work. After all, we’ve got classic chinos and stylish leather boots in the mix, too. You’re going for a look that’s not too over-the-top, but one that just works when it comes to the right style essentials for the season. To get the full picture, keep scrolling, reading and shopping. Like what you see? Let me know all about it on Twitter.

All of the rugged gear picks you need to stay warm in style this winter.

OK, do you have a better idea of how to dress for winter — and how to wear a trucker jacket for winter? It’s something that at first glance might not make a ton of sense, but when done the right way (especially with a warm fleece trucker jacket from American Giant), it can provide plenty of benefits. The best layers for winter are really critical here, too — so, a classic long-sleeve shirt from Buck Mason is going to keep you nice and warm without being overly stuffy. The same goes for your classic denim shirt, also from Buck Mason — talk about a one-two punches that delivers perfectly casual-yet-versatile style potential. Things get amped up ever-so-slightly without going over the top via classic chinos from Flint and Tinder, which also offer up office-friendly (or brewery-ready) style when teamed up with stylish leather boots from HELM Boots — those boots in particularly will age wonderfully over time. They’ll also work in tandem with a rugged, stylish leather watch for a dash of adventure-minded functionality. And thankfully, one of the best men’s deodorants is going to keep you smelling and feeling great — just as a rugged tote bag from Tanner Goods is going to get your gear essentials from point A to point B in style. That’ll about wrap up this #OOTD — where is it going to take you this winter? Great places, I hope. Thanks for reading — cheers!
