As the days grow shorter, you know Winter’s on the way. But who doesn’t love a sunny Autumn day when you can add a light layer to keep that afternoon cool breeze at bay?
When those cold, wet and windy days arrive, you’ll reach for a jacket. Depending on your local conditions, you may choose wool fabrics or lighter waterproof blends, which are perfect for layering.
Check out Sally’s top picks for the best fall jackets. One thing’s certain: no matter which jacket you select, you’ll receive compliments.
MJ Bale Pea Coat, $499
Everyone needs a pea coat. When wearing this traditional style pea coat from M.J. Bale, you’ll easily imagine yourself commanding a ship on the high seas. When a stormy winds and rain lash the deck, turn up the collar and button down.
Although the textured material feels like brushed wool, the Leyden pea coat is 100% cotton, water-repellant moleskin. It’s fully lined and features a welt breast pocket and two flap pockets.
Despite its soft feel, the material’s durable meaning this jacket is an investment. You’ll wear it year after year, and always look in style.
Calibre Bomber Jacket, $429
Another traditional favorite every man needs: the bomber jacket, made famous a century ago by daredevil pilots.
No matter how cool the autumn winds blow, you’ll be warm in the Calibre Bomber Jacket.
Made of Italian textured stretch navy cotton with contrasting black collar, cuff and waistband, the jacket is suitable for both work and play.
You’re ready for anything in Country Road’s utility jacket. Whether you grab it to take the dog for a walk on a chilly evening, for a weekend away or to the footy with your family.
The jacket’s cotton and nylon blend promises that you can treat it rough. With four outside pockets and two inner pockets, there’s space to tuck away all the items in your everyday carry list, and some.
Informale Jungle Jacket, $800
Go anywhere with style in the Informale Jungle Jacket. Made in Melbourne from English-milled 300 GSM navy cotton canvas, this jacket will last forever.
Moreover, the rougher you treat it, the better it will look—no, that doesn’t mean it’s hard and scratchy at first. Informale promises you that the jacket’s comfortable from its first wearing.
And as you’d imagine from a jacket patterned after the US Army, there are pockets abound. Stash your everyday carry in them or your sporting needs on weekends.
Godwin Charli Coat, $899
When the days grow shorter, and those icy winds sweep up from the south, what’s better than Italian wool? Natural wool breathes, combining warmth with durability.
Lined, but unstructured, the made to measure Godwin Charli Enzo coat lifts your workweek attire to a new level. Expect compliments, if not outright envy.
Double-breasted, with a five-button sleeve, the jacket’s formal enough for business, subtly hinting at James Bond-style glamour.
