For the Guys: 10 Statement Jackets That'll Upgrade Your Shirt-Jeans Combo
In a hurry? Just throw on a cool jacket.
(SPOT.ph) This one’s for the gents out there: We know it can be tough trying out bolder looks, especially when you’ve gotten used to cycling through the usual T-shirt-and-jeans combo. If you’re unsure where to begin when revamping your style, we recommend you start with jackets. They’re comfy, stylish, and easy enough to throw on over your usual outfits. Here are 10 to get you started.
Red Postcard Jacket (P4,500) from Factory
This one-of-a-kind jacket from local brand Factory features a stylized version of the Philippine archipelago on the back against a bright red exterior with mustard embroidery—you’ll be hard-pressed to find something similar elsewhere. It has that vintage worn-in feel to it, giving you an effortlessly rugged look.
Embroidered Baseball Jacket (P2,690) from H&M
We like to think of this baseball jacket from H&M as preppy-meets-biker chic—it looks simple enough from the front, but once you turn around, everyone will notice the striking dragon embroidery on the back. The predominantly black exterior with just a few color details makes this stand-out piece easy enough to match with a bunch of outfits.
Packable Jacket (P999) from Penshoppe
If you’re not ready to rock bold patterns or graphic designs, you can start with a color that’s a little out of your comfort zone. Try this bright orange jacket from Penshoppe. Throw it on top of your usual T-shirt-and-jeans look and you’ll instantly be more fashion-forward.
Quilted Jacquard Bomber Jacket (P4,295) from Zara
This bomber jacket from Zara is not for the faint-at-heart—the edgy pattern features red-and-yellow skulls and icons against a navy blue background. Try this if you’re ready to not just step out, but drive a few miles away from your comfort zone.
Pharrell Williams Shell Jacket (P11,000) from Adidas
We’re obsessed with the jewel-toned details on this Adidas jacket. Part of singer Pharrell’s Hu Collection for the brand, the piece was inspired by East-African style and made from recycled polyester fabric.
Zip-Up Check Overshirt (P1,995) from Bershka
This checkered jacket from Bershka is both edgy and dapper. Wear it on a casual day with some chunky kicks or dress it up for a date. You can even pair it with the matching pants (sold separately) if you want to take it to the next level.
Oversized Biggie Sweatshirt (P1,895) from Pull and Bear
Rock this graphic sweater from Pull and Bear, which features a pop-art-style collage of The Notorious B.I.G. for an effortlessly cool look. If you’re a fan of hip-hop music or pop culture, you’ll be treasuring this one for years.
DBTK x LYNYRD Apoy 3 Full Printed Hoodie (P3,500) from DBTK
Go all-out with this hoodie from DBTK. It'll give you futuristic, techy, alien vibes if you’re into that sort of thing. Few would be bold enough to rock this eye-catching piece—are you willing to give it a try? It’ll definitely be a conversation starter.
Rose Wool Jacket (P2,450) from Unschld
It’s 2019—we don’t need to tell you that it’s totally fine for guys to wear pink. That being said, check out this blush-toned jacket from local streetwear brand Unschld. It’s got a cool lip-bite graphic on the back (reminiscent of the ubiquitous Rolling Stones logo) for extra flare. Plus, your girlfriend will love borrowing this!
Green Track Top with Side Panel (P4,395) from Topman
Rock a preppy athleisure look with this track jacket from Topman—very Peter Kavinsky, if you ask us. We love the emerald green tone and the sporty '90s vibe. You might even want to grab the matching joggers (sold separately) to complete the athleisure look.
