If you’re on the hunt for a new fall jacket why not choose one that’s already achieved legendary status? Motorcycle, Bomber and Trucker jackets are all cool classics that have stood the test of time. In fact, if you already own one from back in the day, it’s probably broken in just right and aged to perfection. If you’re ready to expand your collection, we suggest you keep it authentic with one of these heritage styles. Or go for an updated take on an old favorite. These iconic fall jacket styles are on trend now and will look just as fresh next year.
The Trucker Jacket
Every dude should have a denim Trucker jacket in his rotation. Levi’s has been doing them for fifty years. They released their third version called the ‘Type 3’ or the 557XX in 1962, and it quickly became the uniform of bikers and cowboys alike. It’s safe to say the denim jacket is here to stay. And you can still make it your own as its offered in a variety of washes and denim weights. Right now, we like the Sherpa Trucker Jacket, but you can never go wrong wearing the original Trucker style. Toughen it up with some biker patches or pair it with your favorite khakis. Just be careful mixing your denim. Not every man can pull off a Canadian Tuxedo.
The Bomber Jacket
You can thank the United States Air Force for putting the nylon MA-1 in action. The idea was to lighten up the bulk of the heavier leather and shearling styles that preceded it, to make room in the already cramped fighter jet cockpits. This quintessential fall jacket worked in the 50’s, and it works today. Keep it authentic and enlist this green nylon version, complete with knitted cuffs and waistband from US Wings or make your history in this camouflage style from TOPMAN.
The Biker Jacket
Get your motor running. There’s no fall jacket tougher or cooler than a leather biker jacket. If you do it right, you get a Classic Perfecto from Schott NYC. They’ve been making them since 1913 from heavy, cowhide leather. It’s warm, built to last a lifetime and gets better and better with age. Hit the road in style rocking the same badass jacket worn by Marlon Brando in The Wild One, and favored by both James Dean and The Ramones.
