Among the 10 items, only one has a full button closure. The others are all Sheep Leather jackets. I'm not sure how to feel about that. It's nice because it adds variety and is odd because there is no causal jacket on the list (something like a denim jacket would be great).
There are so many great outerwear pieces out there! To stay true to the purpose of this site, I limited the items to 10 (which was not easy). But you can find more inspiration in these posts:
The Leather Jacket The Military Jacket Belstaff Jackets Leather Jackets Faux Fur Coats Peacoats The Trench Coat Parkas Topcoats Overcoats. Let’s Explore them!
1- The Military Jacket:
A military jacket in khaki or olive is a great alternative to the traditional peacoat. It's super casual but, because of the neutral color, it also looks more elegant when worn with dark blue jeans and brown leather boots. I added this jacket to my wish list.
2- The Trench Coat
A trench coat has been around for about 100 years. It's not just a coat for when there is rain; it can be exquisite when worn with tailored trousers and casual leather shoes. This trench coat is also available in grey or navy blue.
3- The Bomber Jacket
A bomber jacket seems like an odd choice because most of the items on this list are coats (and this is not an article about bomber jackets). However, I liked how the model looked in this black bomber jacket, so I wanted to show it. The bomber jacket, especially leather-lined, can be very casual or more formal, depending on how you style it.
A topcoat has always been one of the most elegant coats. In the 19th century, topcoats were popular with both men and women because they could transform a man's outfit into more formal.
5- Leather Jackets
A leather jacket is essential for every guy (even though it is technically not outerwear). You can make your look casual by wearing dark denim jeans and a t-shirt, or you can make it more formal by wearing tailored trousers and classic shoes (like oxford shoes). This leather jacket is very traditional with notched lapels.
6- A Casual Jacket
A casual jacket is my favourite and It has the same design as a formal bomber but, because of the material, it can be worn casually with some jeans or more formal with dark grey wool trousers. I like the style of this jacket .
7- Casual Leather Jacket
A casual leather bomber jacket is even more casual than a casual bomber. It has less structure and looks softer than a regular bomber, which looks stiffer because of the shoulder pads. If you want to make it even more casual, wear your leather jacket with a t-shirt and denim jeans. This one is my favorite.
8- The Peacoat
Sailors originally wore a peacoat (or double-breasted coat) in the US Navy. These days, they are trendy because of the variety of styles and fabrics you can find. This one is from Topman, and I think it looks very elegant .
9- The Leather Biker Jacket
In the 1950s, motorcycle riders wore leather jackets to protect themselves from wind, rain and cold weather. Today, it's a piece of clothing that will never go out of style because of how versatile it is.
10- The Faux Fur Coat
A faux fur coat is a great alternative to a real fur coat. Not everyone can afford a real one, and not many people want to buy a real fur coat because of the ethics that come into play here. This one look super cozy!
