Summer and Spring collections offer some exciting designs but by the time Autumn rolls around, it’s time to pack up your shorts in favor of warmer wear. Adjusting to Winter is never easy but being prepared for the cold months ahead with a closet filled with jackets especially made for that unforgiving weather can make the transition much smoother. From casual denim to heavy duty fleece lined jackets, some of our favorite Fall/Winter 2019 collections provide practical and stylish options that offer much more than just a jacket that keeps you warm.
Perfect for Cool Nights and Chilly Mornings
A denim jacket is a must for those early Autumn days where the mornings and evenings are beginning to become more and more brisk. 3sixteen Type 3s Jackets give you a quintessential denim jacket to complete your wardrobe. Made from shadow selvedge denim woven in Okayama, Japan, these jackets have unrivaled durability. That ruggedness is evident in its wale black corduroy pocket bags, reinforced cuffs, and sleek interior lining. Sanforized denim means that the jacket doesn’t need to be presoaked so it has the comfortable feel of a beloved, broken in jacket that’s become one of your favorites over the years. That rugged aesthetic is complemented by stylistic accents from vertical falling, heavy varied warp yarn, and a crossed back yoke all designed to make this jacket look better the more its worn.
Made to Weather the Storm
The fourth addition to Alexander Stutterheim’s Private Designs Collection hearkens back to the Stockholm jacket that brought the Swedish designer to prominence early in his career. Since then, Stutterheim has developed a refined style that’s minimalistic and practical – and ideal for creating an exceptional raincoat. An emphasis on quality fabrics and expert craftsmanship are hallmarks of his brand, and both are reprised by hand-making each of these raincoats out of lightweight and breathable rubberized cotton. Its extra long fit settles in at the thigh so that each raindrop can cascade down the coat, being whisked away to keep your pant legs dry. Equipped with a two-way zipper made by Italy’s Riri AQUAzip, the Stutterheim Ostermalm Raincoat is perfect for braving the elements whether you’re caught in the rain, sleet, or snow.
Perfect to Wear on its Own or for an Extra Layer
From thick winter coats to lighter rain jackets, the Veilance F/W 2019 Collection has something for every climate, all with the minimalist style the outfitter is known for. The Conduit LT Jacket is one of the collection’s most versatile pieces. Even though it’s especially lightweight, its 850 fill down offers exceptional insulation without being bulky. It’s constructed to ensure that the down insulation is perfectly distributed to eliminate any cold spots. That strategic design also fortifies areas that take the brunt of the storm so that the jacket stays watertight. Its slim fit means that the jacket can be worn comfortably in rainy and windy weather or be used as an additional layer for braving the most frigid cold fronts.
Made to Take Flight
Flight jackets have a style all to themselves. The look gained its popularly in the years following World War II, but became especially widespread following the release of Top Gun in 1986 when the jackets became all the rage. As part of its own Fall/ Winter ‘19 Collection, wings horns takes on this iconic look with its Ripstop Down Bomber. The classic military-inspired bomber gets its name from the high grade ripstop nylon that it’s comprised of. Insulated with ethically sourced goose down, this jacket is every bit as warm as it is sleek. Combat quilting gives the all-black jacket a subtle texture. Articulated sleeves, underarm gussets, and a ribbed collar, cuffs, and hem make this water repellent jacket a top shelf option for fans of the bomber jacket style.
Heavy Duty and Multi-Layered for Supreme Warmth
Veilance’s pronounced minimalist style shifts attention to the pragmatic design of its jackets for the coming season. The Node Down Jacket is the brand’s best option for customers facing months of rain, snow, wind, and severe cold. Its tapered seam construction makes the jacket watertight, keeping you warm and dry all winter long. Despite its emphasis on keeping your warm, Veilance uses proprietary Down Contour technology to keep you insulated while still maintaining a breathable fit. An insulated hood encompasses hidden adjustment chords for an extra snug fit that can take a battering from cold gusts of wind in case you’re caught in the midst of a blizzard. Three-layers of GORE-TEX are at the core of this jacket’s thermal efficiency. Its wind skirt hem configuration is designed to seal out drafts and keep warmth in.
Fleece Lined to Face Winter’s Worst
wings horns harnesses the power of densely woven Japanese nylon and Polartec fleece lining at the core of its Solo Twill Shearling Jacket. The combination of those insulating fabrics along with a two-way RiRi zipper regulate core warmth effectively. An oversized storm hood is perfect for dealing with precipitation while its diamond quilted lining makes for a fit that doesn’t sacrifice comfort. The brand’s Pacific Northwest roots have made them an authority on how to stay warm since they opened their first factory in Vancouver. Since establishing themself, wings horns simplistic designs have emphasized precision tailoring that gets the most out of the premium materials like those that make this a durable jacket that can last for years to come.
