5 Fall Jackets For Work & Weekend / by Emmi Sorokin

It's not uncommon for a guy to have a classic topcoat and/or a sporty ski jacket but nothing in between. These 5 Emmi-Approved jackets fill that gap and transition brilliantly from work to weekend.

They've all been chosen from Nordstrom's because you get free shipping & returns, which nicely removes the risk of online ordering.

Why I Like This Jacket:  In a sea of sad black wool jackets the subtle print adds just the right amount of distinction. The quilted vest is removable and designed to be worn on its own. You can rock this with suiting or weekend wear.

Fit: Tailored.

Age Range: 20s through 60s.

Business Casual Flavors: All.

Why I Like This Jacket: This versatile sophisticated jacket will go over anything from suits to casual denim. The neutral grey tone will play nicely with any color in your closet. It's a perfect jacket for business travel; it looks masculine and put together while being super soft and lightweight.

Fit: Tailored.

Age Range: 20s through 60s.

Business Casual Flavors: All.

Why I Like This Jacket: Perfect jacket for the guy who likes to have some edge without looking like he's trying too hard. Has the toughness of a motorcycle jacket but with the comfort and ease of a soft nylon jacket.

Fit: Tailored.

Age Range: 20s through 40s.

Business Casual Flavors: Traditional, Creative & Tech.

Why I Like This Jacket: A rare gem, the leather blazer done right. To broaden how you can wear it, the zip-up neck warmer is completely removable. It looks great with khakis or denim.

Fit: Tailored.

Age Range: 30s through 50s.

Business Casual Flavors: Creative & Tech.

Why I Like This Jacket: It’s lightweight enough to layer underneath a wool coat or leather jacket. It looks equally good over sweats and sneakers or with an oxford, knit tie, denim and wingtips.

Age Range: 20s & 30s.

Business Casual Flavors: Creative & Tech.
