Guide to Men’s Jackets

How to wear your jacket?

You can wear it in 2 ways:

  • Or as a formal habit (a suit for example) where your jacket will completely cover your buttocks.
  • Or as a separate piece (for a casual outfit) where your jacket will stop mid-buttock, see hip level.

The differences? A short jacket is above all a jacket less subject to codes and conventions. The connotation becomes more free, sporty and personal. And can be worn with jeans, accentuate a “young” side while playing on this aspect of proportions.

I take a jacket of what color?

First thing: I suggest you avoid the black, except if there is a lot of work on the matter and on the details. A simple black jacket greatly ages a man and is frankly boring (except for some designers who can afford some cool fantasies).

Therefore, I did keep saying that you need a winter jacket for men: it is on the Mensjacketsstore. Yes, the gray will really with everything, even with the most vivid colors (and I would even say, especially with the most vivid colors). Afterwards, you can explore other colors, such as anthracite, sand, taupe, etc.

Several materials are also interesting: a raw wool, or perfectly smooth, unless opting for a very light cotton? Or maybe you prefer a blend of wool and cashmere, or cotton and linen? Again the possibilities are endless and contribute to the wealth of this garment.

That said, the PAP low cost, you will find nothing but the good old polyester, painful to wear and very resistant. There is an exception in Zara who likes to go out regularly cotton jersey jackets.

As for the caliber of wool (super 120’s, super 130’s, etc.), drop it does not mean much and you really have to be a specialist to discern it. In this regard, I highly recommend reading this amazing section where you know everything there is to know on the subject.

How to judge the quality of a jacket?

The cut is obviously the number one indicator of the quality of a jacket: a bending with the least possible folds (but not green) is essential. The ultimate is when the jacket keeps its bending when it is open. It is very rare in PAP, and I know only a few brands that can boast to propose such models. Then look at the buttonhole quality of the sleeves (if there are real buttonholes, this is very good sign). The matter of the buttons also speaks volumes (mother-of-pearl horn well imitated?).

At the level of the material, if there is synthetic, mistrust, even if it is possible to find cut pieces.As for the interlining of the jacket (heat-sealing or semi-traditional interlining), honestly, do not worry about it excessively. For a complete beginner, it is quite difficult to discern (especially since there is thermocollage of very good quality).
