Peep our full selection below.

Classic Coat

1017 ALYX 9SM



Buy at ssense


We’re getting major Matrix vibes from this mid-length polyester trench by Matthew Williams’ 1017 ALYX 9SM trench. The monochromatic brand has brought a classic menswear staple into the future, and we think this is the perfect jacket to finish off those all-black-everything ’fits.

Bleached Work Jacket


Buy at The Goodhood Store

SS19 Needles came with tiger print, signature tracksuits, and highlight pieces with paint and bleach splatterings. This purple, Japan-made work jacket is one of our favorite pieces from the line, and you don’t need us to justify its head-turning credentials.

Blacksmith Jacket

Our Legacy

Buy at The Goodhood Store

Here’s a piece that’s sure to stand the test of time. When it comes to simple pieces with a luxury feel, Our Legacy is always a go-to, and this rough-finish blacksmith jacket in a sandy-hued suede is one of our favorite pieces from the Swedish label.

Trench Coat




Buy at Luisaviaroma


Burberry has been on top of the trench game for a long time now, but Riccardo Tisci’s debut collection for the British fashion house marks a whole new era. Alongside distinctive elements from subcultures, reinterpretations of archival check patterns and bold new logos, this two-tone trench coat is an undeniable highlight for SS19.

Oles Coat

Acne Studios



Buy at ssense


Acne Studios takes classic pieces and elevates them with fashion-forward fits and on-point color palates. Case in point: its Oles coat, coming in a long, oversized cut in hazel beige coloring that’s perfect for spring.

Twill Mac Coat

Norse Projects

Buy at The Goodhood Store

Another highlight from the Nordic brands (they just know how to do transitional jackets, it seems) this twill mac is one of our favorite iterations of the classic car coat silhouettes, that can be paired down with a hoodie and jeans or even smartened up on top of a suit.

Black Leather Lance Jacket

Acne Studios

from $1535
Where to shop

If you’re looking to invest in a new leather to go with just about any ’fit, look no further. Acne Studios’ lance jacket is a smarter choice than your standard biker, inspired by vintage designs with pronounced seams and a sumptuous satin lining.

Dotera Mil Coat




Buy at haven


The rise of kimono-style coats is something we could not be more here for right now. Brands are embracing the Japanese piece all over menswear for SS19, but this fusion of kimono and MA-1 jacket has to take the cake.

Henfield Leather Jacket

Ralph Lauren Purple Label

from $3278
Where to shop

Though this jacket may seem simplistic in its design, Purple Label is a major flex. Done out in a luxurious biscuit brown, this Italian-crafted piece will stay with you for life and is sure to keep your aesthetic looking expensive.

Acid Print Windbreaker


Sold Out at Browns

Nemen’s SS19 offering is the gift that keeps on giving, and one of the highlights among its track pants and tactical bags is this acid print nylon windbreaker. Alongside its eye-catching acid splattering, it comes with the Italian label’s signature branded pull tabs and detachable sleeve pocket.
