There are a number of reasons why I enjoy fall the most when it comes to menswear. Among those reasons, one in particular is my love of outerwear. My favorite category of clothing, hands down.
Well the good news is that there are a variety of different types of outerwear to choose from come October/November. The bad news is that this "unleashing of the bulls" per se, can get a bit overwhelming- you'll have a hard time figuring out what coat to actually buy.
To make things a little easier, I've outlined what I consider the essential outerwear list. This doesn't mean you need to own every piece on the list, but choosing a couple from here might do your wardrobe some good. In no particular order, here they are:
1. The Peacoat
2. The Field Jacket / Utility Coat
3. The Trenchcoat
4. The Leather Jacket
5. The Topcoat
6. The Cold Weather Coat
In the following weeks, I hope to delve a bit deeper into each of these jackets/coats, and let you know why I think they're awesome pieces to have in your closet. Keep an eye out, and also let me know in the comments below if there is anything specific you'd like to know about each item.
