There’s just something about cold weather and a well-made coat that makes a man look sexy. We are sure you know the reason why the right coat gives a man bulk – which makes him look powerful on a subconscious level.
We never write about winter coat in the past, not that we can recall. But we do receive some e-mails on this and we thoughts is best we share some of our thoughts with our readers here. As with all fashion, however, there are Do’s and Don’ts when it comes to winter coat fashions, we will not going to touch on this as we believe there are some bloggers given a very good advices. But our rule of thumb is go for true and natural, but there are men who can get away with something out of the ordinary.
Today we’re going to take a look at our 3 favorite styles of mens winter coats.
Classic Navy Pea Coat / Reefer Jacket
This is our favorite, started from Europe, or to be precise, European sailors and this are very well received in both Europe and US now. You can find them with affordable price range. Most fashion designers have their series of pea coats. We still stick to Armani, which make a lovely nice cut with superior material.
Go for what color? the best colors choices are black, navy and charcoal. But you can go for red if you really find this match you well. :)
Traditional Sheepskin / Shearling
We are sure some of you might have one of this. Very common in US. We find them look good on everyone, be it student or yuppies. They usually come in natural or chocolate, and both look fantastic, especially when they come to the mid-thigh.
The only drawback, this shearling jacket is really warm, and so we suggest you only wear this when it's really cold weather out there.
Leather Bomber Jacket
WOW!! another favorite, we're sure Tom Cruise in Top Gun had some influence on our fashion sense, do you agree? Originally created for pilots, which eventually became part of popular culture and apparel. These always come in several styles, such as A-1, G-1 and G-2. If you ask us, we always find G-2 is the smarter choice!
They come in a variety of colors, but what our recommendation? Yes, black or very dark brown. Try to avoid a bomber that has too much elastic at the waist and arms. I think they look best without, as you can recalled from Top Gun movie. But we think the elastic probably serves some purpose for a true pilot but we are talking about fashion here, so this elastic will only minus point rather than add fashion sense to us.
So that’s our winter coat advice. In short, we always find most mens winter coats look goods on you as long as they are simple and of good quality material.
