Let's Hear it for the Boys

For many a coat is a means of completing an outfit. It’s a way to not only warm up but also to cover up fashionably. For men, winter coats are a major aspect of one’s wardrobe, it’s something to wear everywhere and one of the main ways of illustrating personal style. Right now one of the trendier styles of outerwear is the letterman’s jacket. This Fashionisto sported his with a classic pair of dark slacks, a simple knit scarf and square framed glasses. The look is casual and trendy, perfect for heading to class on a chilly day!

When searching for a lettermen’s jacket there are many different options. If you’re looking for an authentic look, I suggest heading up to your local thrift store to uncover a genuine piece. However, numerous brands are reinventing this classic style and putting a new spin on it. The clothing company OBEY opts for a similar look as this Fashionisto. This jacket combines chestnut brown leather sleeves with a dark blue torso and Kr3w vamps up this classic by blending cotton with leather to bring this style up to date.

The other key aspects of this Fashionisto’s look are the brown scarf and dark pants. Both of these pieces are vital to any man’s wardrobe. They’re perfect to dress up or dress down and they go with essentially anything. One of the best places to find scarfs is J.Crew. Their cashmere pieces are so cozy and perfect for the wintertime! This scarf comes in a myriad of colors and it’s a timeless piece. What better than to pair it with a pair of dark chinos like this Banana Republic style, which has a flattering slim fit that’s easy to transition from day to night. All of these pieces—the lettermen’s jacket, cozy scarf and black pants—are key to  any wardrobe and are perfect for mixing and matching with other existing styles in your closet!

Hint: When styling an outfit with a piece like a lettermen’s jacket be sure to tone down the other aspects of the outfit to ensure a classic and simple, yet trendy look!
