Workwear continues to emerge as one of the hottest trends in men’s fashion, with inspiration drawn from every corner of the industry. From 2018’s reflective-strip grails of Junya Watanabe to more understated workwear styles in muted neutral color palates, this timeless trend is loved for its year-round functionality, and so far in 2019 we’ve seen some dope offerings of one piece in particular – the workwear jacket.
Whether you call them chore coats or logger jackets, this multi-pocketed, cotton canvas, button-up style is at the top of our shopping lists for spring, offering a perfect mid-weight for spring layering and breezier summer evening ’fits. And while OG brands such as Carhartt and Dickies have been releasing these kinds of jackets for a minute now, the likes of Acne Studios, Helmut Lang, and even affordable fashion offshoot ASOS DESIGN have been delivering on the workwear-inspired front more recently.
Below, we’ve compiled a list of the best workwear-inspired jackets we’ve come across at every price point, ranging from sub-$100 to particularly designer heights of $1,200. In our picks, you’ll see affordable grails that can be easily integrated into any spring wardrobe from go-to retailers Weekday and ASOS, as well as a decidedly minimalist offering from Acne Studios and a paint-splattered Heron Preston x Carhartt WIP showstopper.
