The Manual’s Picks for the Best Men’s Fall Jackets

Exley Waxed Cotton Service Jacket
As much as we all love the warm breezes of summer, change is in the air. Crisp weather and outdoor adventures mean you need one of the best men’s fall jackets — as soon as possible. That means everything from a cotton bomber, to a rugged moto jacket, to a waxed cotton chore coat are the way to go. You want versatility, durability and rugged appeal, too. There are plenty of places to look for your favorite fall jacket, but we think fall’s best jackets are right here.

Taylor Stitch Moto Jacket ($875)

black-moto

The quality, durability and absolutely stunning style of the Moto Jacket precedes itself. The Taylor Stitch Moto Jacket was a huge hit last year, and it’s back again this year in a very badass black colorway, made from 3.5oz. Full-grain steerhide and cut slim. Buy it via the special pre-funding price, and wait anxiously for it to arrive. And when you do receive it? Wear it with a Taylor Stitch flannel shirt extensively in the cold weather.

Eddie Bauer x Pendleton 1936 Skyliner ($400)

Eddie Bauer x Pendleton 1936 Skyliner

Eddie Bauer knows a thing or two about hard-wearing outerwear built for the elements, and the Eddie Bauer x Pendleton 1936 Skyliner ups the ante even further in terms of functionality and style. You get your pick of four Pendleton wool patterns, each inspired by a different national park, and a revamped silhouette inspired by the original 1936 Skyliner jacket. It’s your upgraded bomber jacket for the season.

Bridge & Burn Flint Overshirt in Denim ($182)

Bridge & Burn Flint Overshirt in Denim

So, while the above overshirt isn’t a classic jacket per se, it’s an essential outerwear purchase for the season. Lined with a neat plaid flannel liner, the rich indigo denim outerwear is the ideal weight to layer up over a slim white henley or a classic chambray shirt. And the rich indigo color also means it can be paired with selvedge denim for a heritage-inspired look.

JackThreads Corduroy Trucker ($79)

JackThreads Corduroy Trucker

If you think a trucker jacket is only fit for warmer weather, think again. JackThreads — purveyors of everything from affordable stretch denim to affordable chambray shirts — have taken this silhouette and done it up in a rich corduroy for a unique piece of outerwear. Wear it with a long-sleeve merino tee, slim blue denim and retro runner sneakers for casual weekend outings galore.

Exley Waxed Cotton Service Jacket ($575)

Exley Waxed Cotton Service Jacket

Exley describes itself as the “new New England,” and styles like the Waxed Cotton Service Jacket back that up nicely. The brand’s aesthetic — as you can see in the image at the very top — is nothing but classic style and functionality. There’s a whole lot of heritage blended with modern wearability — this is the type of jacket to wear extensively on fall long weekends, made in New England from a Staywax cotton shell that’ll hold up very well over time.
