6 Things Every Guy Needs | #1 A Jacket

Can you still be a manly man and care about what you wear?  I think you can.  Where I was born and raised, it was and is normal for a guy to wear decent clothes or at least to give a rip.  In this six part series, I am going to give you my style must haves for an off the clock guy.​  Every guy needs a cool coat or jacket.  Regardless of the climate every man can rock one of these jackets. Remember, you need a jacket for warmer weather and a coat for cooler weather.  Let’s talk style.



1.  AN ARMY JACKET
You can get these jackets in a lot of places.  I don’t have a ton of cash so I have to hunt and find cheaper stuff.  In the States, the only place I have found these jackets fairly cheap have been in Target.  Surprisingly their line of Jackets are quite good and well priced.

2.  A STRONG COLLAR
Some have said that popping your collar is out but I like it.  I wear what I think looks good on me and also what is current.  Any guy with the right look can be raised up a few cool points by simply lifting their collar.  Make sure you get a jacket/coat with a thick strong collar. You don’t want it falling down on you while you're trying to look good.

3.  A FORM FITTING CUT 
Choose one that has form fitting lines. Why fitted?  Regardless of your size a regular jacket/coat cut with a straight line approach will make you look like a potato.  Buying one that is fitted will keep you from looking like that.  Sometimes you can find army looking jackets with ties around the waist.  Just tighten it a little and leave unzipped.
