We’ve all seen them. Yes, jackets or coats that have that distinct (faux) sheep wool lining or collar. They are also thick and warm hence they are worn typically throughout most of the year. Although shearling jackets or coats have been on the trend wagon for a while, it seems that both the general public and fashion lovers cannot get enough of these utilitarian yet dashing pieces. We’ve provided some of the most popular types of shearling jackets and coats amongst men today as well as some styling tips to officially make them our staple wardrobe pieces.
The Denim Shearling Jacket
The beautiful contrast between the wool or fur lining and denim is a definite stand out. The denim shearling jacket is a practical casual piece for the fall or spring seasons and coordinates very well with basics.
