Fashion has always had its ups and downs, from one trend to another. What is in today may not be cool tomorrow. But if you want to go with something that has held its own for quite some time then you can go with plaid. And one of the areas that this is most obvious is in men’s plaid jackets.
If you work in an outdoor setting chances are that you will have seen much of the striped and checked style that comes to us from the Scottish clans tartan. To my eyes, nothing looks quite as fine as a hard working man in jeans and a flannel plaid jacket. It is such a manly apparel and according to TV and the movies the perennial choice for the lumberjack and outdoorsman.
Of course, it really can be worked into a business suit which you will have seen if you do any shopping for men’s suits. Just check out the Ralph Lauren and Jos. A. Bank apparel lines. In fact, plaid in men’s apparel have been a staple for a long time especially as the fashion world counts time.
There is a host of these items out there in every color, pattern and style that you can imagine. Some are for casual wear and some are for more sophisticated times. When you see these wonderful men’s plaid jackets, many times they will have insulated linings or some may even be lined with polyester or down fill. Of course, we’re talking the more casual jackets here. Men’s blazers and sports coats come in fine wool as well as polyester. No matter the style, if this is what you are looking for you will have no trouble finding a style that is just right for you.
