Sheep’s Clothing: A Guide to Shearling Outerwear

sheeps clothing a guide to shearling outerwear alpha industriesb3sherpa featured
Although it’s a classic material that never truly goes out of style, shearling sheepskin – that’s sheep leather and fur – is having a menswear moment again this fall, with flocks of designers and brands incorporating it into their current cold-weather collections.

Durable and naturally insulating, shearling (and modern-day faux shearling) is the foundation of many a timeless bomber jacket or can be used simply as an add-on for a pop of warmth and softness. And it works and looks fantastic whether the fleece is placed on the interior or exterior.

Like most leather coats, shearling options do not come cheap, but their hardiness and evergreen stylishness rank them among the ultimate in (great) investment fashion pieces. These are coats you will be glad to commit to–for years, if not decades.

Here’s a look at 16 of our favorite shearling coats currently available, in a broad range of price points and styles….
