In 2022, you’re more likely to cop a technical down jacket with a lightweight, insulating lining than a wool coat for winter. We get it, they’re lighter and more effective, but do they really look as good? For centuries, wool was the go-to material when the cold hit, and while down padding has replaced it for the depths of winter, it’s still a contender for fall.

Wool coats retain a sense of formality. Even in the form of varsity jackets and bombers — as you’ll see below — wool coats feel like a return to all-too-rare classic forms in menswear. Whether you’re styling tailored trousers or loungewear, wool jackets will fall in line where a down jacket risks visually downgrading your fit.

Below, we hit the pages of Harvey Nichols to put together some of the best men’s wool coats and jackets for fall and winter. Names like Rick Owens and Givenchy accompany Moncler Grenoble, Reese Cooper, and more to prove that all sides of menswear still believe in wool coats.

Shop the best wool coats for fall 2022 below.
