The coolest men’s jacket for winter is plaid. A classic pattern, the perfect choice for the coldest of seasons, that derives its name from the traditional check blankets and that immediately evokes a warm embrace. Plaid also adds a rustic, laid-back touch to any men’s wardrobe, making it ideal to wear up in the mountains, but also off duty in urban settings.
