Fall Parka and Jacket Round-up For the Masculine Queer

A lot of bois have written in noting that fall is around the corner, and they still don’t have the perfect lightweight coat to wear! Below I’ve compiled a list of fall outerwear (parkas in particular. I need another parka like I need a hole in my head.)

Parkas

Parkas are a stylish mix of a coat and a jacket. Fun and comfortable, they are best worn as everyday casual wear.

Lifetime Dublin Jacket, $67.99 at Pacsun

Quilted Jackets and Vests

Lightweight yet cozy, quilted jackets and vests are always a good idea. The detail of the quilting is a great addition to any fall outfit. We still love what the guys at Street Etiquette had to say about the ones at Ralph Lauren:

For a cheaper alternative Men’s Quilted Cord-Trim Barn Jackets, ($59.94) look great in person

Varsity Jackets

Regardless of your athletic ability, varsity jackets are a great look. I’m especially fond of the contrasting colors on the cuffs and collar. Varsity jackets are great for running errands and overall weekend activity.

She draws inspiration from the southern prep style, particularly the style at her undergraduate institution at the University of Virginia. Her current wardrobe largely consists of basic pieces in natural fabrics, simple colors, and carefully tailored fits. Blake is interested in adapting classic, well-composed style to queer masculine-of-center bodies of any size.
