Is This the
Perfect Fall Jacket?

A dozen of the season’s best chore coats

Best men's chore jackets in 2020

A chore jacket is anything but a chore to wear. In fact, it's probably one of the easiest to sport because it's lightweight yet insulating. As versatile as it is practical, the jacket is an old school workwear staple that has emerged as the modern man's choice of outerwear as we lean into fall 2020. Makes sense, considering the ample pockets come in handy for your mask, hand sanitizer and the rest of your EDC.

Right now, some recent menswear favorites from the worlds of prep and workwear are returning to the forefront. And this jacket sits right in the middle of those two, looking at once classic and incredibly current. It's a jacket that's lived several lives, been co-opted by everyone from laborers to skaters and has since returned in fresh fabrications from a range of brands. What's more, they're easy to tailor to your own personal style and budget. Available in a variety of fabrics and colors, here are 12 of the season's standout options—from starter models that ring in under $100 to more durable and luxe versions built to last. Trust us, you won't want to be without one.
