The winter months are upon us, but that doesn’t mean you can’t buy a friend or loved one something for all seasons.

We’ve collated a list of the best jackets for men in 2022. Whether you’re looking for a waterproof coat or casual bomber jacket, there’s something here to suit everyone. 

1. BARACUTA – G9 Af Classic Cord

  • Double zip fastening with logo

British, bold, and, of course, Baracuta. The G9 Af Classic Cord jacket feels both contemporary and classic, and the tartan lining adds a touch of luxury. 

Baracuta - G9 Af Classic Cord

Crafted from a blend of premium materials, the G9 is lined with a thin Thermore® layer. This layer provides heat-insulating properties without making the jacket feel too puffy or restrictive. 

The Harrington Jacket has been a staple of the modern gent’s wardrobe since James Dean donned it back in 1956’s ‘Rebel Without A Cause’. It’s undergone slight modifications since then, but on the whole, its current design is very similar to the original. 

At Stuarts, our range of Harrington Jackets includes a wide range of colours and fabrics to suit your style. 

These jackets can be paired with a host of garments to create various on-trend looks. One look that is transitional and can be worn throughout AW and into SS is the Harrington jacket paired with boxy straight cut trousers

2. FRED PERRY REISSUES – Towel Bomber Jacket – Navy

Price: £290.00

Standout features:

  • Cotton moleskin outer with towelling lining 
  • Horizontal zipped pockets 
  • Contrast tipping at the neck and cuffs

Varsity is in for 2022, and the Towel Bomber Jacket from Fred Perry’s Reissues collection is at the forefront of this trend. 

Fred Perry Re-Issues - Towel Bomber Jacket

Inspired by the ‘Very Very Fred Perry’ adverts of 1963, this reinterpretation of a classic will give your leisurewear a luxe vibe. The directional styling of the jacket delves into the Fred Perry archives and blends the classic notes of the old with contemporary construction methods. 

The Fred Perry Reissues jacket collection has a design for every style. Whether you’re searching for a timeless piece, or something to help you step up your street style efforts, there’s a jacket in this collection for you. 

As the name suggests, the Reissues collection reflects classic designs from the Fred Perry archive in a fresh, reimagined way. The result of high-quality craftsmanship and iconic heritage designs, the collection is suited for the man who prefers the classic and understated look. 

To go all-out with the Americana vibe, why not pair this jacket with casual kicks from New Balance. Whether you opt for a pair of dad sneaks or a classic tennis shoe, the varsity look will be complete, and you’ll have a staple weekend outfit.

This is a jacket for those looking to break the mould. The Detroit Tuscan jacket is the latest must-have staple from workwear brand CARHARTT WIP that’ll take any outfit to the next level. Relaxed, contemporary, and practical, this jacket should be paired with a fresh pair of Red Wing boots to create an off-duty look that’ll make you stand out.  

Carhartt Jacket

CARHARTT WIP is an esteemed brand with a rich heritage and since its inception in 1889, it’s released collection after collection with the recurring ethos of “honest value for an honest dollar”.

BELSTAFF - Wayfare Overshirt

Waterproof and water repellent, the understated piece from the British designer will be your go-to jacket for 2022. Lightweight but designed to tackle the elements, this latest garment embodies the versatility of the Belstaff men’s jacket range, which includes trend-driven, functional, and purposeful designs. 

The Belstaff brand has roots in Motorsports heritage. Since 1924, it’s continued to innovate and craft high-quality coats and jackets for those who appreciate luxury apparel and live a “life that is less ordinary”. Specialising in waxed cotton and leather jackets, Belstaff has continued to lead the way in contemporary fashion whilst remaining true to its classic style. 

The Wayfare Overshirt is technically an overshirt, but it’s also the perfect layering piece.  When combined with a classic white tee or something from the Stuarts workwear capsule, it has the versatility to become a layered jacket piece.  

5. BELSTAFF – Nubuck Fieldmaster Jacket – Taupe 

Price: £1,150.00

Standout features:

  • Corduroy-lined collar and cuffs for added warmth and comfort
  • Reinforced shoulders and elbows for enhanced durability

An investment piece, the Nubuck Fieldmaster jacket is the leather jacket of all leather jackets. Crafted in Italy, it will give you an air of refinement, and you can wear it season after season for decades to come. ​​

Belstaff Nubuck Fieldmaster

For the gentleman who wants to embody the quintessential British look (think David Gandy and Jude Law), this is the jacket you should be wearing. The Burnished Nubuck Fieldmaster is not all about the aesthetic – it also has properties that make it a functional piece. These properties include corduroy lining for comfort and warmth, and an adjustable buckle collar and snap cuffs for weather protection. 

This chunky jacket allows you to tighten up the silhouette in the legs, which is why we recommend a pair of slim tapered jeans or even a skinny fit pair to go with it. The beauty of the Nubuck Fieldmaster is its versatility – you can dress up or down while wearing it. Dress up with brogues (we recommend Grenson), or dress down with a pair of light coloured trainers (ideally some fresh box white trainers).   

6.  MONITALY – Coverall Cotton Heavy Twill 

Price: £450.00

Standout features:

  • Made in Los Angeles
  • Three patch pockets 
  • Double needle felled seam construction

The Coverall Cotton Heavy Twill from Monitaly is a jacket that will be your go-to statement piece for 2022. Not for the faint of heart, the stand out and garish design is embodied with the name of the colour which is donned as ‘crazy’. 

MONITALY - Coverall Cotton Heavy Twill 

Crafted from 100% cotton, this jacket is a homage to the vintage clothing scene of Los Angeles that values high-quality, durable apparel. It follows the structured and boxy look that will continue to rise in 2022, and will set you ahead of the trend and is one to watch out for next year. 

Monitaly was created from the unique vision of Yuki Matsuda back in 1989, and its designs have always taken classic garments from heritage lines and warped them into modern statements. For those who want to stay on the cutting edge of fashion-forward designers, Monitaly is one for your watchlist. 

The Coverall Cotton Heavy Twill is undoubtedly one of the more daring pieces on our list, and it offers you complete creative freedom. When wearing this jacket, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to experiment with colours and tones. As the design is bold, we recommend opting for a singular block of colour in the lower half of the outfit, and the range of men’s trousers has a wide selection of choices for you to consider. 

7. BARBOUR – Rib Collar Westmorland Wax Vest 

Price: £180.00

The sleeveless trend or vest uprising is a great way to give your existing wardrobe an uplift, and the Rib Collar Westmorland from Barbour is a contemporary way for you to tap into the utility trend. We saw this trend in its infancy in 2020, and it started to crawl into 2021, but for 2022 – it’s coming full force. 

Barbour - Rib Collar Westmorland Wax Vest

Crafted from waxed cotton and cut with straight lines, the boxy and contemporary finish of the design will allow you to create straight-lined silhouetted ensembles that help you to add to your off-duty outfit collection. Decorated with utility pockets and a simple two-way zip – the Rib Collar Westmorland is a piece that you will get a lot of use from in 2022. 

Barbour is constantly drawing from its heritage designs, and this particular garment is straight from their White Label range that fuses premium Japanese style with loved traditional Barbour pieces.
