Men's Winter Coats That Look Sexy

Updated on October 22, 2012

There’s just something about cold weather and a well-made coat that makes a man look sexy. I can’t really tell you why, I can only tell you the right coat gives a man bulk – which makes him look powerful on a subconscious level.

As with all fashion, however, there are Do’s and Don’ts when it comes to winter coat fashions. If you’ve read my other articles, you know I prefer clean, classic lines on a man. Obviously, there are men who can get away with something out of the ordinary. Generally speaking, however, most men are better off sticking to the tried and true.

Today we’re going to take a look at my 3 favorite styles for the modern male.

Classic Navy Pea Coat / Reefer Jacket

These are hot. Originally worn by European sailors, they’re pretty standard navy issue, which means you can find them in a highly affordable price range. Or, if you want something slightly more posh, you could purchase a designer pea coat. Armani makes a lovely little number.

The pea coat is traditionally made of wool – you will find similar designs in leather and suede, these don’t really hold the same appeal for me. Occasionally I see a nice corduroy pea coat, but those are quite rare. I’ve seen all kinds of men wear pea coats and I’ve yet to think them silly on anyone. Skaters, businessmen, yuppies, hippies, students, military men – this jacket really goes with any style from jeans to dress slacks.

Note: regardless of which category you fit into, the best colors choices for pea coats are black, navy and charcoal.

Leather Bomber Jacket

I have always loved this look. I’m sure Top Gun had some influence on that, now that I think of it, but it’s sexy regardless. These come in several styles – the one I love most is the G-2 Flight Jacket. Nice, heavy duty leather that makes a man look yummy.

They come in a variety of colors, but I’d recommend black or very dark brown. Try to avoid a bomber that has too much elastic at the waist and arms. I think they look best without, as you see in that photo. Yes, I realize the elastic probably serves some purpose for a true pilot – but this is about fashion, people! And fashion has nothing to do with practicality!

Traditional Sheepskin / Shearling

I love these. You see a lot of them on cattle ranchers and cowboys in Texas. I’ve also seen them on frat boys, hippies, and yuppies. They look good on everyone. They usually come in natural or chocolate, and both look fantastic, especially when they come to the mid-thigh.

One thing – if you’re going to wear one, make sure it’s cold. They are very, very warm and can make you sweat even whilst standing in 3 feet of snow. In other words, this isn’t just a fashion statement. Make sure it’s cold enough to wear one.

So that’s my winter coat advice. Generally speaking, I like most leather jackets on men, as long as they are simple and high quality material. Avoid anything flimsy or super shiny unless you want to look like Huggy Bear.
