The Best Corduroy Blazers Are Here Just in Time for Winter

Your blazer rotation just got a whole lot more stylish — at least, that’s the case if you consider our picks for the best corduroy blazers. Gone are the days of the baggy, stuffy corduroy blazer worn quite literally by your undergrad professor. The best corduroy blazers this year are sharp and cut as cleanly as your favorite suit jacket or trusted navy blazer, yet with some cold weather-ready fabric to give it that extra edge. The casual, throwback-inspired nature of corduroy gives these jackets the ability to be dressed down (see: a henley and dark blue denim) or dressed up (see: a white Oxford shirt and navy chinos). The best part? There’s plenty of time left to pick up yours.

The 10 Best Bomber Jackets for Spring 2022
A man wearing a bomber jacket under a white shirt.

The best thing the Cold War ever gave to fashion is undoubtedly the bomber jacket. The lightweight, versatile jacket we know today was an evolution of the WWII era shearling jackets worn by bomber pilots — hence the name. During the Korean and Vietnam Wars, early versions of the bomber jacket we know today became standard issue throughout multiple branches of the United States Armed Forces. Just as with the trench coat and peacoat before it, the bomber quickly transitioned into civilian outerwear service by the 1970s.

Bomber jackets have come a lot way since then, in both aesthetics and technology. Countless clothing brands have updated the original design, often incorporating new fabric and hardware innovations. The result is an entire sub-category of jackets available today. With a recent resurgence in popularity, it seems like almost every clothing brand is offering its own take on the military classic. We searched through the rank and file and organized a crack squad of the best bomber jackets to add to your wardrobe this spring. Note: Aviators sold separately.

The Best Oxford Shirts for Men to Buy and Wear
Best Oxford Shirts

Every guy's wardrobe should have items that never fail him, no matter the situation, like one of the best Oxford shirts for men. The Oxford shirt is a step up from the humble t-shirt or henley, yet a step down from a dress shirt: It falls right in line to be worn with jeans on the weekend or to be paired with chinos at the office. You can layer one of the best men's Oxford shirts with a V-neck sweater in winter or underneath a trucker jacket come spring.

And best of all, it's a classic men's shirt that never goes out of style (trust us on this). So named for the Oxford cloth used in the original versions, the buttondown collar was a special advance that helped polo players prevent their collars from flapping in the wind. These days, it's still recognized as a "sport" shirt, or one that's more casual than a dress shirt or the type of shirt you might wear with a tuxedo. That's why Oxford shirts are so at home with rugged shawl cardigans or waxed jackets, and they'll even look classy and sharp with one of the best tailored overcoats for men.
