Outerwear: Even the Valet Will Do a Double Take

Now that winter is around the corner, a night out means we have to take that extra step to wear the right outerwear piece. Remember back in college, when we’d go out to a party or bar without a coat? Well, we’ve smartened up a lot since then, haven’t we? When we’re heading out for the evening, the final touch ends with our coat. We’ve just put all this effort into looking good, so let’s not blow it here. It really is important to have a coat that will work in the evening, and that can mean anything from a stylish jacket to work with jeans for a nice dinner to something that can be worn over a suit for a more formal function. With the diversity of outerwear styles this season, we have amazing – and functional – options that will surely make the Valet do a double take.
Let us know what you think in the comments below. Check back tomorrow for “Outerwear: Make that Coffee Run in Style “. Whatever the occasion, we’ve got you covered.

This wool and cashmere blend coat from Theory will serve you well when a dress coat is in order. The stand collar, covered placket button closure and concealed side entry pockets make this a sleek coat to wear with a suit or sport coat and jeans. The fit is contemporary, making for a polished and trim look that is ideal for a night out. While it comes in 4 great neutrals, we are partial to the eclipse navy for its versatility – it works with the most common pant colors in our wardrobes (grey, tan, brown, olive, and denim).

We really admire the sartorial juxtaposition of the classic style and grey herringbone fabric with the contemporary, slimmer fit of this Vince topcoat. It works over wool dress trousers, khaki’s and even jeans. And at a 36-inch length, it will work over any suit or sport coat, making this coat a great choice for any evening out – especially if you’re coming straight from the office.

Cole Haan’s classic fit finger tip length mélange wool blend coat is a great after five coat – casual in styling, but the mélange wool blend fabric dresses it up, making it just the coat you need when you’re heading out for the night in a button-down shirt, cashmere sweater, and a great pair of twill pants or jeans. The zip chest pocket and two lower flap pockets amp up the modern aesthetic, and of course, provide functionality…that big new iPhone 6 Plus needs to go somewhere.

A leather bomber jacket is always in style, whether you can fly your own plane or just want to look that way (we’ll never tell). This brown leather zip front version from J. McLaughlin has sleek style, great for a night out. It pairs effortlessly with jeans for that rugged look, but looks equally dapper with a pair of dress wool trousers…even cool pilots like to dress up for a nice evening out.

If you haven’t already noticed, we are big fans of 3-in-1 styles. This one from Vince is a winner for it’s classically modern trench coat styling. Trenches typically, just like this one, are made of bonded cotton. As the temperature drops, that can be too lightweight. But for those foul weather nights that are wet and cold, Vince has added a zip out quilted vest to keep you warm. And if you don’t need it, just take it out. The vest can also be worn on its own with your jeans or khaki’s. The black color goes with everything, and the 35-inch length covers a suit or sport coat. The fit is contemporary, so it creates a sleek look…whatever the weather may have in store for you.

Sure, puffers are insanely practical in the winter, but they are not always the most dapper outerwear pieces. Well, that’s certainly not the case here. This quilted brick colored blazer-style jacket is so special. Herno, known for their well-crafted outerwear, began as a raincoat maker in Italy in 1948. And they certainly have fine-tuned their skills to deal with any climate. The notch collar and button, and 2-way zip closure are so functional – bundle up when you need to, but you can still unzip the bottom to sit on the train or in the car. The pocket flaps are lined in fleece and have a concealed magnetic closure. The fill is 100% goose down. And all of this in one amazing looking, contemporary fitting coat. It looks great with flat front cotton twill pants, a sweater and pattern shirt for a sophisticated out on the town look. And your jeans will instantly look better when you’re wearing this with them.

This navy varsity style jacket from Japan’s nanamica® (yes, at J. Crew) is perfect with your dark wash jeans and sweater for a casual night out. The jacket’s body is melton wool (that sturdy, dense wool) and the sleeves are durable cowhide leather. It has a thermal lining for added warmth. The fit is contemporary, with a modern attitude. It’s the grown-up version of that letterman jacket that was so cool in high school. You’ll still feel like the big man on campus.

This wax cotton field jacket from Belstaff is an iconic design, recognized throughout the world. It will take you from restaurants to your favorite drinking holes on cool fall evenings in pure style. Belstaff, which was founded in 1924 in Staffordshire, England, developed the first water resistant wax cotton fabric. The oil/wax treatment creates an amazing wind and water barrier, perfect for all kinds of weather. The black color is universal, especially with the pop of olive and plaid in the interior. It comes with a belt, but we prefer to wear it without it, as shown here.
