Best Men's Trucker Jackets for Fall



When we talk about the best jackets for fall, there’s a style we find ourselves reaching for over and over … and over. We’re talking about a silhouette that looks as cool and tough now as it did when it first hit the market: the trucker jacket. The purview of road riders, Wild West cowboys and anyone with a job to get done, the trucker jacket has taken on an aura of mystery through the years thanks to the guys who’ve worn it best. For you, maybe the fella who showed you the all-consuming appeal of the trucker jacket was your father or grandfather. The style, with front button chest pockets, side hand pockets and tough construction to hang with the best of them, was made for hard work, adventure and a cold pint at the end of the day. Done up in everything from waxed cotton to washed indigo denim, today’s crop of trucker jackets is lean, mean, ready for fall layering & designed to help you seek out your next great adventure (or your next cup of coffee on the weekend).



Here’s where we come in. The best trucker jackets are yours for the taking, and not a moment too soon. Recommended side servings with your new favorite fall jacket include a durable henley, slim denim in a contrasting shade, and rugged leather boots. The main course, though, is all about your jacket. Start your next adventure here.


Flint and Tinder’s iconic waxed trucker jacket, now flannel-lined for warmth and comfort


Tough, timeless, and made in the USA, this top-seller is constructed with a waxed and weather-resistant Martexin 7 oz. sailcloth, which like selvage denim or finely tanned leather, will only get better with age. Every time you hoist a beer, tie your boots, or ride your bike, your movements will lighten the color of the waxed fabric in the creases and bends to create your own unique wear patterns. It's truly a thing of beauty, and why every guy needs a Waxed Trucker in their closet. And unlike most of the other Waxed Truckers on the market, this jacket is soft out of the box, and can even be worn only with a tee underneath since both the body and sleeves are fully lined with soft blanket lining that feels great on the skin. For the price, you simply can't beat the quality, construction, and versatility of this bad boy.



Flint and Tinder and Golden Bear's heirloom status-trucker in suede leather


Here in San Francisco, we're spoiled. Not just by the year-round mild weather and the easy access to Northern California's jaw-dropping scenery. But also by the abundance of industry-leading craftsmen that call this place home. The folks at Golden Bear are a prime example. Ever since the 1920s, this legendary outfitter has crafted their top-notch outerwear for longshoremen and dock workers right here in The City by the Bay. So when Flint and Tinder set out to make a sturdy, heirloom-grade leather jacket, they knew only one collaborator that fit the bill. The result is an extremely good-looking, luxurious suede jacket built strong enough to hold up as long as the Golden Gate Bridge's suspension cables.



A classic heritage jacket with Billy Reid’s signature touch


Billy Reid’s approach to each design is to create pieces that are set a step above in craftsmanship. In a menswear market flooded by trends, their dedication to quality materials and timeless silhouettes makes them stand out from the pack. When it comes to cooler weather, a heritage Billy Reid jacket pulls out all the stops with durable construction, soft corduroy, and antique styling that never seems to go out of style. Wear this Trucker Jacket on its own or as a layer everywhere from the holiday work party to grabbing drinks with friends.
