While enjoying the fall foliage or planning for winter festivities, the optimal outerwear choice is always equal parts function and style. Men’s designs for Fall/Winter 2016 offered a fresher take on classics with military details and oversized shapes. To help select a style or two of your own, our men’s Buying Team has edited the best toppers for leaf-peeping, snow days, and beyond.

Loewe perfectly marries an authentic garment with the irreverent style that designer J.W.Anderson is known for. Inspired by the warm lining of a WWII military trench, this coat promises to withstand the stylish demands, as well as the elemental forces, for decades to come. This oversized, utilitarian elements make a bold statement of functional elegance, and the raw attitude places it high on fall’s must-have list.”

LOEWE X-Painted Quilted Poplin Coat

John Totolis, Men’s VP/DMM

“While the peacoat silouette has been around for decades, every style that creative director Antonio Ciongoli designs for Eidos has the utmost attention to the fabric detailing. This makes his wool boucle blend variety of the classic incredibly up to date.”

EIDOS Bouclé Peacoat

Drew Caldwell, Senior Buyer, Men’s Developing Designer Collections

“We are excited about our first season with Ganryu as it is an extension of our long history with the Comme des Garçons gang. This twist on a classic athletic piece is indicative of the creativity Fumito Ganryu brings to his menswear designs.”

GANRYU Coach Down-Filled Nylon Jacket

Charlston Ang, Senior Buyer, Mens Tailored Clothing

“This coat is great for any formal or casual occasion and can be relied on throughout fickle weather. It has a removable fur collar and liner for warmer days and the exterior is water-repellant.”

Young-Su Kim, Senior Buyer, Men’s Designer Collections

“Oversized silhouettes in outerwear is a big trend this season, and our exclusive Burberry x Barneys New York capsule showcases some of the best shapes. Balance the proportion by pairing the coat with slim black jeans and sleek Chelsea boots.”

ACNE STUDIOS Mountain Puffer Jacket

Johnny Li, Buyer, Men’s Luxury Sportswear

“For the cruel NYC winter, I need a parka that can help me survive a blizzard, take a beating, and still look stylish over a suit or with some joggers. This Herno is parka windproof, rainproof, and subtle enough to be thrown over anything.”

HERNO Laminar Parka

Chelsea Sutrisno, Associate Buyer, Men’s Denim and Denim Collection

“A bomber jacket is a great investment piece and this specific style is super versatile. Wear it zipped up for a more conservative look or zip-down to reveal the fun bright orange fur inside. Whatever mood strikes, this works for any fashion personality!”

MR AND MRS ITALY Fur-Lined Nylon Bomber Jacket

Julien Decanali, Buyer, Men’s Designer Collections

“This cropped military jacket, designed exclusively for Barneys New York, is a personal favorite of mine this season. The cotton twill will age nicely with wear, which gives an extremely regal jacket a more relaxed feel.”
