The Blocktech Parka by Uniqlo will serve as a reliable outerwear staple for fall fashion.
Depending on where you live, fall can be one of the most beautiful times of the year. The weather is chilly but only enough to call for light layers. Make sure your closest is equipped with the right coat or jacket for the right occasion. When it comes to low-key, leisure activities, you may want a practical jacket rather than a posh statement coat. After all, memorable fall activities like pumpkin picking, attending a harvest festival or strolling through an apple orchard with a loved one calls for reliable and comfortable outerwear. Here’s a curated list of the best light coats for men that will keep you warm and comfortable this fall.
Canada Goose Bromley
Chances are you’re familiar with Canada Goose for its parkas. Although usually known for making outerwear for the extreme Canadian weather, the Canada Goose Bromley is a fall-friendly jacket that’s warm without the bulk. It will get you through the fall and warm enough to carry you well into the early weeks of winter. The one drawback of this jacket would be its $800-plus price. But if you consider the premium materials being used and that it takes up to 450 hours to make just one Canada Goose jacket, it’s a reasonable asking price for a luxury item.
Uniqlo Blocktech parka
If you’re not interested in mortgaging your house to fund your fall-fashion appetite, then look no further. The Uniqlo BlockTech Parka is a clean-cut, minimalist parka that’s well equipped, has an abundance of features, and only sets you back $29.99. It has a smooth polyester finish combined with dry touch materials to keep you dry inside and out. It’s also waterproof, so it can double up as an impromptu raincoat during unexpected down pour.
Ozzy Down Jacket
If you want the luxury feel of Canada Goose, but don’t like adorning brands, then the Mackage Ozzy Down Jacket is the perfect coat for you. It’s stylish, lightweight, and comes in a modern straight silhouette featuring 850+ fill power nano-goose down. The outer shell is water repellent and soft to the touch. It has leather trim all around and the only visible branding is a little leather badge on the hood.
ARCTERYX ATOM LT
Don’t let the simple look of the Arc’teryx Atom LT fool you. Despite being lightweight and taking up little space in a backpack or suitcase, this jacket comes with some of the latest tech. It is made with Coreloft insulation, Polartec, and Hardface resulting in a material that’s highly breathable. Its outer shell is made from DWR taffeta giving it superior protection against rain, snow and wind. It’s a versatile jacket that can be thrown on for a morning jog in the woods or roll it up into your luggage for your next ski trip.
Cotopaxi Palmas Windshell
Those who love the ‘90s will feel a bit nostalgic with the Cotopaxi Palmas Windshell. Besides the cool look, the windbreaker is also waterproof, breathable back vents, and even special pockets for water bottles. You can also feel good buying Cotopaxi’s athletic wear knowing that they’re made from recycled fabrics. Interestingly, all products come with a 61-year warranty.

Want to look cool without trying so hard? Levi’s Men’s Trucker Jacket is a good fitting pair of rugged denim that’s made to look as tough as you are. It’s a classic look and it will only continue to look better with age. It’s also low-maintenance style, made of cotton and machine-washable. Layer with a plain white tee or a plaid shirt. It’s a flexible jacket that can be styled in many different ways.
Allsaints Apsley Mac
For those living on the edge of society, you’re probably already familiar with Allsaints. Known for its minimalist yet eccentric style, the Allsaints Apsley Mac is a coat that will make you stand out. It’s a classic British mac coat with subtle style details that makes it look edgy. In addition to being trendy, it’s also well made and easy to style. You throw the Apsley on top or just about any outfit underneath, and chances are it’ll still look good.
