The temperature is dropping once again, and like the plush curtains of a broadway show, our closets have flown open to embrace outerwear. Is it impossible to pack too many jackets? In true CYTIES fashion, our team has done the homework, choosing our favorite jackets to travel with this fall. Any on the list below will be all you need to handle the chilly elements. Happy overcoat season, folks.
Canyon Suede Bomber
Holy smokes, if this isn’t the color of fall, we don’t know what is. This coat is a classic, full-fitting A-1 style sheepskin bomber with a ribbed baseball collar, topped off with double-welt hand warmer pockets to keep your mitts warm with any sudden gusts of wind. It’s comfortable and will keep you looking vigilant and ready for any early morning strolls amongst the turning leaves.
Mackinaw Wool Jacket
With a perfect fall color tone, the Mackinaw Jacket is pulled from Filson’s ancient archives. Made of wool this coat specializes in keeping the core warm and toasty, naturally staying breathable with a specialized tight weave that blocks wind and provides durability. The Mackinaw is highly enduring, and functional, pairing well with piping hot coffee and a day of fall adventures.
Flannel-lined Waxed Hudson Jacket
As far as heritage jackets, it doesn’t get more vintage than Flannel Lined Waxed Hudson. Built from a handsome hunter’s jacket OG design. It’s a core-shell with style, shielding you from all the rain and snow with its waterproof waxed canvas and warm flannel lining. The underside of the collar is banded with Shetland wool from Abraham Moons, one of the UK’s oldest woolen mills still operating, doesn’t that just tug at your heartstrings?
Taylor Stitch Quilted Decker
Yes, you’ve seen a bomber on this list already. Yes, we love them so much here is a second. The beauty of this jacket is how quickly it can dress up and down. Taylor Stitches’ version of the all-mighty Bomber offers up all of its signature functionality of the classic silhouette in a substantial woolen finish. The Heavy duty rib at the collar, cuffs and bottom opening won’t stretch out, keeping it looking brand new for the test of time.
M-59 Fishtail Parka
Trekking through some rainy cities? Then you know how important it is to have a Parka for how wet it can get. Alpha Industries sets the bar of outerwear with this badass Fishtail Parka inspired by the U.S. Army M-51. We love that it harnesses a villainous vibe, helping you scare off the rainclouds. It’s got inside buttons, you can even add their Quilted Fishtail Liner for the monsoons.
Fall/Winter is all about having the right jacket, any of these picks will keep you shielded from the elements and looking sharp this season. Layer on, gentlemen.
