Monitaly designer Yuki Matsuda gives the field jacket a playful makeover by cladding it in plaid. Raw-edge leather drawstrings, dual-angled flap pockets, pencil holsters, and a hidden ventilated hood round out the Paul-Bunyan-takes-the-L-Train look.
The double-breasted raglan trench from Pendleton’s U.S.-made Portland Collection is an heirloom in the making, with a classic macintosh design in 100 percent virgin wool that will help you look effortlessly pulled together, no matter what you’re wearing (or not wearing) underneath.
ROCK THE VAUTE
Named for a certain actor who reminded us we’re all Earthlings, the single-breasted Joaquin overcoat by Vaute Couture comprises a recyclable vegan shell and zero-waste recycled satin ripstop lining, with New York City construction thrown in for good measure.
CALL OF THE WILD

Made in the United States, the Barracuda jacket from Opening Ceremony offers an all-over cork print inspired by the sands of Morocco. Metal buttons punctuate the rich, textured surface while adjustable waist straps keep the fit loose or cinched.
A tailored bomber that resists water, wind, and even dirt? What more could a man ask for in a jacket?

THE HILLS ARE ALIVE
A vintage style from Sierra Design’s archives, the mountain parka is a true American classic, not least because it was reconstructed in Boulder, CO, with fabric from the company’s California mill. Using the same densely woven cotton-nylon blend in the original cut and colorways, the oldie -but-goodie includes leather pull tabs, cord locks, and the formerly retired “60/40 Made in America” interior label.
A structured waxed-canvas duffle from the same century-old company that outfitted James Dean, the Ramones, and Bruce Springsteen, Schott’s Navy jacket boasts the same New York City provenance as the long line of coats that preceded it. Thar she blows!

EVERYBODY CUT LOOSE

For its first piece of outerwear, Bonobos borrowed style cues from Sherlock Holmes, Philip Marlower, and Inspector Clouseau to create the Shamus trench. Stitched in New York City from water-repellant cotton, the slick topper is perfect for “resisting foul play or fouler weather,” says the label.
