New season fashions have hit the high street in force, and if you’re still desperately clinging to summer clothes in a last ditch attempt to kid yourself that it’s still good weather, we’re here to tell you that’s time to let it go and open your wardrobe to new possibilities. Autumn can be a tricky time of year to judge what to wear – it can still be very mild, but generally damp so investing in a new jacket is a wise choice, as it’s not quite cold enough yet for a coat but definitely not the hazy days of summer anymore. Here’s our advice on the best autumn jackets for men this season to check out.

Leather jackets

Every guy should have a leather jacket in his wardrobe. This timeless classic will never go out of style, although each year there might be subtle tweaks to the overall style and fit. This is definitely a piece worth investing in as it will see you through more than one season, so spend what you can afford although be sure to check out what’s available on the high street – there’s more out there than you think. Pair with a white t-shirt, checked shirt and leather boots for an on-trend look this autumn.

Bomber jackets

90’s fashion staple, the bomber jacket, has been enjoying a revival lately, and when you need a casual jacket that’s not quite a coat then this could be the look for you. This collarless jacket is available in a multitude of styles and fabrics – choose from sleek leather, metallic, waterproof and weatherproof options, or even quilted if you want it to take you effortlessly into the winter season. This is one of the most versatile autumn jackets for men, and can be worn with a pair of trainers or stylish Chelsea boots.

Tweed blazer

Sometimes, you need something with a little more structure to it, that can be worn for smart casual occasions without appearing too stiff or like you’re trying too hard. Tweed and woollen blazers are perfect alternatives in this case, and perfect for work or weekends. Check out this handy guide on how a blazer should fit to make sure you find one that flatters you.

Trench coat

Trench coats have sometimes received a bad name, but in fact they are very fashionable autumn jackets for men and perfect for throwing on over your suit in the morning as you battle the commute in drizzly rain. Stick with the iconic tan option for a coat that will match practically every suit colour you own, or if you want to break the mould try a bold colour to bring a little sunshine to a dreary November day.
