Moose Knuckles: Cool Jackets for Cold Weather

Moose Knuckles jackets
.
Jackets: the bane of winter fashion. Often the warmer and more functional they are, the less stylish.

It’s perhaps unsurprising that Moose Knuckles, a Canadian company, clearly no stranger to winter, has found a way to battle the biting cold and wet of winter while looking damn good. The irreverent company, which started in 2007, sought to make durable, stylish, luxurious outdoor clothing and man did they succeed. Check out some our favorites below.

Falcon Bomber

Honestly, it’s worth buying this coat for the name alone. Be prepared to be carried around on shoulders and receive free rounds at the bar from all the people in ugly, lumpy coats. While none of that is guaranteed, warmth and stylish luxury are. The Falcon Bomber, available in either black or navy, is made of a nylon, waterproof shell protecting a layer of duck down–one of the warmest materials in nature. The design features quilting, keeping the coat close fitting without all the puffiness of some down jackets.

Maybe you live in an area that’s particularly cold and you want some head/ear protection but the hipster beanie isn’t your style. Search no further, cold man! You need the Moose Knuckles Fairfield Hoodie, which is very similar in design to the Falcon Bomber, but it has a hood. And comes in way more colors: black, gray, navy, red, and camo. It’s definitely a bit more casual than the Falcon Bomber, but it’s the most sophisticated hoodie you’ll ever own. The tips of your ears will thank you.

Forman Jacket

Apparently we’ve got an unintentional “F” theme going on with these jackets, but it can’t be helped– we didn’t name them. The Forman Jacket, available in black or navy, is a duck down, quilted, water repellent jacket that will seamlessly make the transition from dinner to camping or whipping down a serpentine road on a vintage Triumph. This coat makes winter worth it.

Each jacket sells for $475, which is a bit of a steal considering they’re down jackets. But these jackets are also handmade, taking an average of 90 craftsmen to complete each one. Thank you, Canada!

The best places to buy vintage t-shirts: Our top picks
Rep your favorite fandom with these tees

The best men's clothing will always be full of divisive ideas. As we push the boundaries of what is acceptable, stylish, or masculine, certain items in your closet or drawer will cause backlash for some and praise from others. However, one item will transcend this argument (while simultaneously being the most hotly debated part of it) mostly because it sparks something nothing else in men's fashion does: nostalgic conversation. T-shirts may always walk the line between beloved casual and home wear, but vintage t-shirts find a way to transport us back to a time when the world felt simpler.

NFL’s Kirk Cousins reveals his secrets for the ideal boating day on the lake
The perfect boat and the perfect hat for the NFL QB
Kirk Cousins driving a boat

Nothing beats a day on the lake. Or the ocean. Or even the pool. But not every day on the lake is the same, and some of those moments on the water call for more than just a summer set or a great summer look. Being by the water is nothing compared to being on the water, feeling the waves and basking in the sun where the closest person is sitting on dry land.
That's where Manitou comes in, with its mission to get people off the sand and spend their time getting wet. And no one is better to help Manitou get people out on Lake Michigan better than hometown hero Kirk Cousins, who teamed up with the brand to bring a new twist on the pontoon boat.
We had the opportunity to sit down with the NFL quarterback to ask him questions about the boats, his day on the lake, and even a little football. When he's not leading a team with his arm, he's spending time with his family on the water, and he gave us a peek into his ideal day on the lake, and one of the items he always wears.

Why Manitou?
