Best Winter Jackets For Men | Stay Warm & Stylish In Cold Weather | RMRS Style Videos


Brr! Guys, it’s cold outside! In today’s video I’ve got the winter jackets
that every man needs to know about, so that you can use this information to go out there
and find the right jacket for you. You ready? Let’s do this. All right gents, so this is the way the video
is gonna work. I’m gonna start with casual jackets, make
my way to the formal jackets, put them on and talk about them. You ready? Let’s do it. First up we’ve got this casual sporty down-filled
quilt-style jacket. Now quilt style, these are gonna be jackets
that have basically these individual pockets. This is great – whenever you use something
like down it’s gonna prevent it from bunching up. Now, down, I absolutely think that this is
a great material for insulation and that’s historically why it’s been used, but a great
thing about this is that I can crush up this jacket, put it at the bottom of my bag, and
I can take it with me anywhere, put it on, it’s gonna do a great job insulating, keeping
in the heat. The bad part about down – you get this jacket
wet, all of a sudden it’s going to lose its properties. Now, it’s sporty because of the color – the
bright green here, the bright yellow on the inside, and the buttons and the overall zipper,
the design of this is more of a sport design. Next up we’ve got the denim Sherpa jacket. It’s in a bomber style. So a bomber style is basically going to have
this material right over here or a type of fur, basically a type of lining that you can
see on the outside near the collar, and then you’re going to have the pockets right here,
and then the pockets right here. Now the outer part you’re gonna see is made
of denim or jean material. You’ll also see this as the insulated truck
jacket and insulated jean jacket. When it comes down to it this is gonna be
the hardier, more cold weather version of the basic jean jacket. So why would you want to have a jacket like
this in your wardrobe? I think it’s great cos it has a very Western
kind of a cowboy feel and it’s great workwear. Next up we’ve got a gray field-style jacket
with a twill weave to it, made from cotton and a bit of synthetic material. Now I like this jacket because gray, again,
a non-color, gonna pretty much match anything in your wardrobe. But let’s talk about the field style. So the field style is going to have usually
two breast pockets, two large pockets right here. These pockets down at the bottom are important. Historically they were for carrying ammunition,
hence the field jacket. This was something a lot of gentlemen used
to take hunting. It also should have two pockets right behind
those lower pockets where you can put your hands and keep your hands warm. Now the inside of this jacket has a nice feature,
and I love it when jackets do this, when they actually have a vest that could be removable. It’s basically adding an extra layer of insulation. so if it’s a bit warmer outside I could take
this out, if it’s colder then I simply have this extra layer right here, you know, on
my core area. Again, we’ve got another field jacket. This one does not have the breast pockets
but it does have the large signature ammunition pockets down at the bottom – in addition,
a good nice place to put my hands. Now the reason I wanted to show you this jacket
is the waxed canvas outer material. This has been around for over 200 years, has
been loved by hunters and everyone because it’s relatively inexpensive. It uses cotton, but you just can apply some
wax on this, and you do need to re-wax these jackets. Wax is hydrophobic, which basically means
it will repel water. It’s just a very durable material and inexpensive,
hence why it was sought-after. All right, so we’ve got another quilted jacket. This one actually is not using down, it’s
using a synthetic material. The great thing about this – this jacket can
get wet and it’s still gonna do a good job of keeping me warm. Now the style you’re gonna notice again is
a field – not exactly classic because the pockets down here are not huge, and it doesn’t
really have a place for me to put my hands, but it does have the double-breasted pockets,
it’s got the large pockets right down here. And let’s talk about the color. This dark olive green right here, very different,
not nearly as loud as that bright green I showed you earlier, but this one still does
have a sporty flair to it, and that’s because it’s a classic hunting color combination. So you got the bright orange here with the
olive green – again, a classic sporty combination related to old-school hunting. All right, so now we’re talking about the
leather jacket – one of my favorite jackets out there because it comes in such a wide
variety of different styles. You’ve got bomber, you’ve got biker, you’ve
got the flight jacket – so many different options. So let’s talk about the classic biker jacket. We’re talking in black, we’re talking with
large oversized zippers, with buttons, a functional jacket that screams rebel. Hence seen in the movie Rebel Without a Cause. The Wild One. Guys, these movies right here, they highlighted
this jacket, and that’s when it first hit the scene, became very popular with not only
people that were riding motorcycles but people that wanted to stand out from the crowd. Now one of the characteristics of the classic
motorcycle jacket is that it has an overlap area. Now the reason leather jackets are so popular
with motorcyclists, with race car drivers, with pilots, is leather has unique properties
which you’re not going to find in a lot of other materials. Number one, durability. So if you’re racing on a motorcycle and you
take a spill and you go sliding across the road, the leather actually does a pretty good
job of protecting your own skin from that road rash. Next up let’s talk about wind resistance. So if you’re up flying an aircraft, maybe
an open-cockpit airplane, actually it did a good job of keeping you warm, of keeping
the wind from going in and just basically chilling your body. And let’s talk about the coolness factor. The right leather jacket can make you look
amazing. People, when they see it, they think strength. They think masculinity. Next up let’s talk about the parka style coat. So this was developed by the Caribou Inuit
people, and basically it’s all about the hood. Oftentimes you’re gonna see them with fur
linings, and that’s gonna be fake most of the time. Now this was a very functional piece but they
were a very heavy jacket, wind resistant, very well insulated, great jackets if you’re
gonna be gonna be in sub-zero temperatures. Now the classic rain jacket, the mackintosh. I wanted to talk about this even though it’s
not really a winter jacket. I know some of you guys actually don’t get
really low temperatures, so I think it can be a winter jacket for those that deal with
monsoon, you deal with a lot of rain, to have a lightweight shell that you can throw over
anything and stay dry, and hence stay a bit warmer. Next up, gentlemen, we’ve got the classic
trench coat. Now this trench coat is in a non-classic color
– this one’s navy. Classic is going to be beige. Now the trench coat is a very interesting
piece. It started off in the Boer War, then became
popular in World War One in the trenches, hence called the trench coat, and it is now
a men’s classic staple. But I don’t see a lot of guys pulling it off
much anymore because they’re a little bit harder to find and they are relatively expensive. And let’s talk about the length of the trench
coat. For most men right above the knee is gonna
be a jacket that’s gonna best serve you – easier to get in and out of your vehicle. But if you’re walking, you know, to and from
work, if you commute a lot of time on the subway, maybe going for a trench coat that
goes below the knee is gonna be better for you. Next up let’s talk about the classic pea coat,
one of my favorite jackets, because it has a military history and it’s incredibly functional. So the military history – this one came out
of the US Navy, made popular 1930s, during World War Two, and after – you know, everyone
started getting out of the military, they sent all these jackets to surplus stores,
and they continue to be used by the Navy to this day. But this jacket right here is one that is
incredibly functional. Now, it’s not going to be as long as a trench
– this one right here just goes past the buttocks – but it’s gonna be heavier built, will fit
right over a suit jacket and I think it looks great, and I really like the way it doesn’t
break up the leg line and it actually can make a shorter man look taller. Next up let’s talk about the overcoat, but
really quick, the top coat. So I don’t have a top coat. Top coats are really rare nowadays. They’re oftentimes made from very lightweight
materials like gabardine. They’re more for show and to protect like
your black tie attire. Now an overcoat is the most formal jacket
that I own and that I use, and it’s made to go over a suit. Now you are gonna find that overcoats sometimes
are made to actually go all the way up, but they make most of them are gonna be worn like
this. And this is a formal jacket, a formal coat
to be worn with your jacket – a sports jacket, a suit jacket. Now the length. I do think that if you want something that
can be very functional in and out of vehicles maybe get something about two to three inches
above the knee. Now colors – I like charcoal gray but you
could go into black. You could also go with navy. Alright guys, now it’s your turn. I wanna hear from you down in the comments

  2. Pea coat my favorite but in canadian winter onky military parkas work nothing else can insulate you from harsh winters

  3. Can you do a video on looking good while carrying a firearm? Seriously, it’s difficult to find a holster with nice materials and doesn’t bulge. My wife likes the under-arm carry, but not the material. Thank you

  4. Super cool Video Antonio, but I really would like to see you pull that denim jacket or field jacket off in Austria when it has -20 degrees 😂
    Still I got some Inspiration, thanks !

  5. I wore my fathers pea coat ( the real mccoy, dense wool and thick) , in high school and received lots of compliments.

    I have a leather field coat for when it's really cold. I have a insulated "windbreaker" but am lately tired of the sea of plastic coats and am considering going to a more formal Harris Tweed sport coat or even the Aran Sweaters. I am looking for a dress overcoat(I'm an accountant) in wool now.

  6. I bought my peacoat on eBay from an ex-Navy officer who had done his service in places like the US Virgin Islands, Texas, Florida, etc… He'd never worn it. $100, looks dynamite, super warm, 100% wool with nice pewter button that make it stand out a bit from jackets with plastic buttons. A peacoat looks good on everybody, it's definitely my favourite coat I own.

  7. I am a long time subscriber from your channel.. why am i not getting recommendations when you upload videos.. youtube can be strange at times 🤔

  8. These coats suck, light , girlie not warm and only come in a few colors, thats what happens when you let gay men run the fashion industry. I wish i still had my varsity jacket for cool air and my Penney's winter jacket for cold air from 1977. Way better coats. By the way men wear coats, jackets are for dressing up.

  9. What about a shearling Jacket like a b3. Or a Battle of Britain Irvin jacket ? I like my Irvin even though I look a bit like a pornstar or drug dealer

  10. i was gifted a scott's peacoat and wore it for the first time the other day and fell in love with the attention to detail. I now get why its such a popular coat for men.

  11. After stewing on this video over the weekend I have to say I am very disappointed.  I can find information on what types of jackets there are out there from anyone, what I wanted to see was HOW to wear those jackets.  Can you wear a parka with a button up shirt?  Are parkas, quilted jackets, etc. business casual?  Other than the overcoat, are any of the others business formal wear?  What colors/materials dress the jacket up/down?  That was what I was hoping to see in the video and I would love to see a "How to Wear the Best Winter Jackets for Men" with that sort of information.

  12. Shorter jackets (like the bomber or biker) are harder to pull off by taller guys. I look like a balloon on stilts wearing one.

  13. Can someone please explain what the attration to leather jackets? Never seen one really come off as great-looking. They seem to come as 'alright' at best.

  14. I bought a wool navy double breasted overcoat in a thrift shop. It was like made by a tailor to me. The point is that thrift shopping is like fishing – you can be really lucky and otherwise. But a great way to save much money – especially as a student.

  15. Is there a name for the style of clothing in the thumbnail? I’m interested in this kind of clothing, but it’s hard to find something you don’t know the name of… thank you in advance

  16. I love Sherpa jackets, I picked up a red flannel Sherpa jacket as well as a brown bomber jacket, I also check out vintage flannel coats. But my all time favorite winter wear in my closet is my olive green pea coat which I call "My Christmas coat". Have you ever thought about making a video on "Christmas office party" fashion for men?

  17. Since we don't get too much cold in Southern California so a leather jacket and jean jacket works perfectly for me. Although I will be adding pea coat later in life.

  18. I have BIG problems finding winter jackets that suit me, due to my weird body proportions – I'm only 5'6" tall, but I have the shoulders of a guy of over 6'. Most of the jackets that aren't casual look either very boxy on me if they're short jackets e.g. pea coats (emphasising my already broad shoulders), or I drown in them if they're long e.g. trench coats as the hem of the jacket goes right down to mid calf or even ankles, and the cuffs of the sleeves cover most of my hand.

    I've only found two coats so far on the classier side that suit me, both overcoats in fairly drab shades of grey that come down to mid thigh.

    I love the look of pea coats, but I think for my height I would need to have slim shoulders that then are built out by the coat to look amazing (as most shorter skinny guys look in pea coats). I can wear most of the casual styles and look "OK", but it's a real struggle to find anything that looks really amazing. I would so love to wear the Officer K style coat from Blade Runner 2049, but again I don't think it would suit me.

  19. I considered going for a classic British trench coat from Burberry but I found that I struggled to find one that fit very well. I was also unsure about it’s versatility. I decided to go for a high quality parka from Canali which has a real fur lining. I was surprised at how much I liked it because I really do not like the fur lining look. Fortunately it has a detachable hood, which increases its versatility. I was even more pleased when I discovered the fur lining could be removed from the hood. So now I have a piece of fur that is of no use to me. I feel bad for the animal.

  20. Kuiu’s down jackets are treated with dwr at the individual down feather level and are great for even wet situations. Just saying

  21. Love Patagonia lol. Still pretty young so just gonna stick to the casual more sporty winter jackets for now. Bought a new down one today. Will need to get more formal as I grow tho

  22. Sorry to hear about alfa m vnt
    Rip alpha chanel after mvnt vs rolex watches review
    Now we have only antonio
    Pls dont do stupid things like him

  23. i wear two different AERO leather jackets until -5°. below that I got a Wellensteyn Parka (which would make me sweat above -5°…)

  24. Poorly researched…The first green jacket featured is the Patagonia Nano Puff, which is a SYNTHETIC Primaloft insulated piece that is still warm even if wet/soaked, unlike down. The Micro Puff is also a synthetic puffy that’s more expensive, but warmer for the weight and even more packable. Both come in jacket/hoody/vest

  25. In germany the brand wellensteyn is very popular the jackets are 200-270 the quality is very good for the price in my opinion the feel better than a woolrich maybe check them out in germany kind of every 10 person is wearing one but i never heard from other countries wearing this

  26. I like to thank for this video of good advice. The the classic bellow or big lower pockets jackets, the waxed jacket, the sports classic quilt, and the formal brown over coat are my preferences because I wear very similar ones in era, colour, cut and design. Some of the best jackets in my opinion are the barbour jackets because they are amongst the richest in all the aspects of clothing. There are few other jackets belong to the other few jacket brands that make the same or rarely better quality but definitely still not parallel in a broad comparison with the barbour ones. I think all what clothing is about is well established and expressed within just the barbour clothing brand excluding the formal wear maybe.
    That is why I think I will enjoy if you explain out the barbour jackets and clothing in general all though everything about this brand tells me I aught to be analytic and carious about it.
    Cheers,
    Ahmed

  27. They're all very pretty but each is lacking functionally; some it's the material; some it's the collar. If all it needed to do is to keep someone warm walking from the car to indoors they're OK but they won't hack it for most outdoor activities.

  28. I just wear my Perfecto Style leather jacket all year long which saved me a trip to the hospital when I wrecked my motorcycle. Nothing better than a Vanson leather jacket

  29. Hi Antonio, I've been following your channel for a while on my transition from a student, a worker, into my career field and all these tips and tricks you've shared have been SOOOO useful. Please keep doing what you're doing 👌

    -Ian

  30. A good down jacket for causal everyday use.
    Leather jacket when I want to take it up a notch.
    For those more formal occassions nothing beats the nice charcoal grey topcoat over the suit or sport coat. Really knocks 'em dead.

  31. Question: How many of us in our 20s-30s now associate the trench coat first with a particular "mall goth" crowd from when we were in school? Or w/ reaction to "goth fashion." (Pointing at those who might know something about it.)

  32. I have a black wool pea coat that reaches to my knees and I bloody love it! I also have a shorter cotton/quilted lining coat that I would love more if the bloody buttons wouldn't keep falling off!

  33. My favorites are the classic trench coat and the dark wool overcoat. I liked the navy trench rather than the camel color. Does anyone actually look good in that color? Men look so good in an overcoat.

  34. My favourite coat is a custom tailored London Fog cut trenchcoat I had made with black leather in 1993. I still have and wear it and it's beautiful.

  35. I always thought Quilted Jackets looked too bulky but hey I'm the type of kid that puts nerf guns in the jacket and pretends I'm Bond.

  36. You can go ahead and throw all these jackets in the trash if you live in Canada.. these jackets would not keep u warm on our really cold days..

  37. Back in 70s and 80s trenchcoats were still popular especially for commuters in regions with lot of wet winter weather. Trenchcoats were made to protect from wind and rain. Men wore them below the knee to protect pants from splashing water. Around early 80s Prince and his band popularized wearing trenchcoats as style piece similar to how Madonna popularized wearing lingerie as casual clothing for women. The trenchcoat may have fell out of favor because during the 70s and 80s it became a negative symbol for "raincoaters" in porn industry (i.e. dirty old men who wore them to adult movie theaters) and "flashers" (i.e. exhibitionist men who liked to expose themselves to women). This may be why the trenchcoat is not as popular anymore.

  38. here in Maryland you don't see to much trench coats cuz of …….well security protocol except at renaissance fairs ( medieval ) fairs……..probably not sure about today though…..

  39. As someone who lives in the West but grew up in a tropical country, I find this really helpful to understand what to buy and why.

  40. love this video hi brings diferent jackets with diferent styles and explains their functiinality not like other videos with a bunch of kids showing of with an expensive jacket they have or make publicity without knowing anything about it

  41. Buy your winter clothes in summer, assuming you can find them.

    I like those looooong trench coats worn by WWII German military. Especially the leather ones.
