On a freezing night in the footy grandstands, there is nothing that can warm you up like a steaming hot meat pie … except
for your favourite jacket!
But jackets do much more than just keep you warm. Jackets can also complete your outfit and along with shoes are one of the first things people will notice about you. With so many styles available getting the right jacket for the right occasion can be trickier than it looks. With outerwear being an absolute essential in the cooler months we’ve put together a guide to pick the essential styles every guy should own.
What is a Shacket?
Not sure if you should wear a jacket and be boiling hot in the afternoon or not wear a jacket and freeze in the morning? Then you need a shacket! A combination of the shirt and jacket, the shacket is arguably a much more successfully blended word than the attempts of dog breeders with the goldendoodle and cockapoo. Think of it as halfway between a shirt and a jacket — a perfect, year-round layering piece. You can wear shackets with almost anything, under a coat in winter or over a t-shirt in spring, summer and autumn. They're as versatile as your favourite pair of jeans. Check out the fleece lined shacket from only $39.95.
The Denim Jacket
If you don’t already own at least one denim jacket, it’s time to invest. The denim jacket is a must for every guys wardrobe. The denim jacket is durable and its one of those jacket styles that is really versatile. It’s also perfect for any time of the year and you can wear it with whatever outfit you want. And while double denim can be dangerous territory (remember Justin Timberlake and Brittany Spears denim on denim fashion moment at the 2001 American Music Awards) you and your pooch will look awesome in matching sherpa lined denim jacket $69.95 plus dog sherpa denim jacket $19.95.
The Puffer Jacket
Ideal in summer (when the air-conditioning is freezing at your office) but even better in winter, there’s something pleasurable about knowing your puffer jacket could keep you warm climbing Mount Everest. But keeping warm doesn’t mean you need to look like the Michelin Man. With a lightweight puffer you have the versatility of layering while keeping a slim look like this black puffer jacket only $39.
Practical and stylish, a hoodie is a must-have for every man. And every man has a favourite hoodie in their wardrobe, like Rocky Balboa jogging up the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art in his iconic grey hooded jumper to the Big Marn watching the footy in his favourite tie dye zip through fleece hoodie. And just because it’s a casual style doesn’t mean you have to look sloppy, they’re a great way to bridge the gap between comfort and style. Layering your hoodie with quality jeans and a leather jacket will give you a causal, trendy look. All you need to do is choose your favourite hooded style. Like the simple full zip hoodie jacket only $19.95.
The Fleece Jacket
At the first sign of cold weather we love to break out the fleece from the back of the wardrobe. And during the cold months there’s nothing better than staying warm, soft and cosy in your favourite fleece. It’s something we actually look forward to! When it’s freezing outside and you’re warm and toasty in your bed, isn’t it great to know you can feel like that all day, wherever you go, in your fleece jacket? Like the fleece zip hoodie jacket from only $19.95.
