After all, fall jackets for guys are like catnip to us ladies.

Below, the 20 best fall jackets for guys:
SG Says: A Noragi Jacket in a Boro patchwork print might not be the everyday go-to, but this statement layer is perfect for punching up a fall outfit.
We can’t get enough of cozy, patchwork-style jackets at SG HQ this autumn. How ’bout you?
2. Quince, $200
SG Says: A real leather jacket under $500? You better believe it.
This biker style from Quince is a perfect middle-entry point for a have-it-forever leather jacket.
Expensive enough that you know it’s legit. Not so $$$ that handing over your credit card will make your eyes water.
3. J.Crew, $798
SG Says: Our very favorite find from J.Crew’s fall collection. A car coat looks SO good on guys. I honestly don’t know why more of you don’t wear them.
It’s such a laissez-faire way to do elevated casual style. A total “handsome rich guy in a movie running out for coffee on a Saturday morning” vibe.
Yes, it’s expensive, but you’ll have this herringbone jacket forever, and you’ll always stand out in a good way when you wear it.
SG Says: Another entrant in the “investment outerwear” category.
Because a super-top secret style tip is that a classy topcoat is a total game changer for guys.
You can throw it over literally any outfit and look 100% classier.
So, don’t save it for special occasions. If anything, this jacket looks better when it’s the star of the show.
SG Says: Love this waxed canvas jacket in a modern fit, with a cozy flannel lining from one of the UK’s oldest woolen mills.
All in all, this Flint and Tinder coat (available from our fall brand partner Huckberry!) is a rugged jacket with a refined sense of style that’s hard to beat for fall.
SG Says: This kind of sherpa fleece-all-over coat is not for everyone, because you do have to have the confidence to look sort of like a teddy bear when you leave the house.
In a good way, obviously.
SG Says: A reversible, packable, and lightweight jacket that’s perfect for fall.
With a modern, slim fit, this technical-nodding quilted coat from Banana Republic Factory is a casually elegant investment that will go the distance in your wardrobe.

8. Target, $50
SG Says: This trucker jacket from Target’s surprisingly stylish Goodfellow & Co line looks great.
Our team loves the added touch of that sherpa collar.
SG Says: The Baracuta style is the gold standard for Harrington jackets, so if you can afford to spring for it, do. You’ll have it – and wear it – forever.
The plaid lining adds visual interest without being overly busy, and you’ll look and feel stylish and sophisticated, without feeling like you’re wearing a StAtEmEnT CoAt you can only bust out for special occasions.
- Under $100 option: ASOS, $50
10. Wax London, $215
