10 Stylish Jackets to Shop for Your BF (and Steal From Him Later)
*casually forgets to bring jacket to the movie date*
(SPOT.ph) Fair warning to all the gentlemen out there: your dates, crushes, girlfriends, wives, and admirers only really want one thing from you—your jackets. No, seriously. Bae says she’s chilly during the movie date? Best believe she didn’t bring her own cover-up on purpose. And the second you take off your beloved topper and wrap it around her shoulders, you should be ready to accept that you’re never going to get it back. Now, we feel for you and your lost jackets, chaps, but we’re here today for the ladies: in case your man never brings a jacket that suits your preferences, just do the practical thing and buy him one yourself. You’ll probably get the most use out of it anyway. We round up a few that he (and, more importantly, you) would love to wear.
Here are 10 stylish men's jackets you can shop in Manila now:
