The Essential Black Military Jacket by Indochino

You’ve got to hand it to custom men’s clothier Indochino – they know how to create stylish looks that’ll fit a variety of tastes. Whether you’re looking for a classically styled suit, or a blazer that’ll help you stand out from the crowd, they’ve probably got what you’re looking for. Their latest outerwear collection is no exception. With more than 20 coats to choose from, you’ll be able to find exactly what you need to complete any cold weather look. In addition to the outerwear, they’ve also released a line of 100% mongolian cashmere scarves in 6 different colors.

We asked Indochino to let us try the Essential Black Military Coat and an Olive Green Mongolian Cashmere Scarf on for size, and you can see the results here.

It’s the little things that always impress me with Indochino’s products. Details you wouldn’t find in clothing you purchased elsewhere (that in some cases cost much more), you’ll find in the garments they put together. The military coat($349) is made from a blend of wool and cashmere, which looks sturdy and well put together while still feeling soft to the touch. Inside the coat, you’ll find a quilted lining that you customize with the color of your choice, as well as a few well placed pockets and a removable suede scarf loop. The neck enclosure protects against the elements, and just looks really cool with the attached metal buckle.

You can also get an optional belt if you’d like, but for big guys, I’d recommend skipping it as it has a tendency to segment your body in a way that isn’t quite as flattering.

The Mongolian cashmere scarf ($99) is a great addition, and if you’re just starting to become adventurous with colors, the fact that these scarves are all solid colors is perfect for you. Indochino guarantees that each scarf is 100% cashmere, and you can certainly tell when you wrap one around your neck; They’re warm and soft, and won’t leave your neck itchy like some lesser quality products do. Though I’m a fan of the green, you can also choose from purple, red, gray, and two shades of blue.

As we always mention when talking about Indochino, the best part about the company is that your clothing order is custom made to fit you, so you know it’ll be exactly what you’re looking for. If for some reason, you need it altered, they offer a $75 alteration credit that you can use at your local tailor. They’re doing a lot to make it easy for you to order clothing to your exact specifications.

If you’re looking for a coat for colder weather (or a gift for some other lucky gent in your life), consider Indochino’s outerwear collection for high quality, great looking clothing in the sizes you need.

This dude is stylin! His clothes are sharp as the look on his face! WERK


I LUV his look!  His preference for all black with splashes of color throughout is catchy! He obviously has impeccable taste in bags. I'm so dying over the Ted Baker bag in that second photo.  He rocks!

I've shopped old navy and seems like they are one of the only people that try remotely to cater to plus size mens clothing, however i find their jeans fit wonderful through the thigh area but not so much through the legs... i wear a 46 to where the jeans fit they look good, but i have found that the leg area they use too much fabric... even when I've tried their slim & skinny jeans. I just wish that they would test more and try making them look more tailored, without them being to tight or to big through the leg. I feel like a lot of stores really don't pay attention to this side of the size spectrum, probably because it costs them money. You don't see very many extended sizes in store for some reason and what you do find a lot of the time is over sized generic clothing basically drapes which seems like they guessed at what the size it might look like. Although stores like Casual Male XL has decent clothing... and you can find most extended sizes, its completely over priced, and since I'm young i do feel like they don't have styles current with younger generations, feel sorta like shopping with my dad. Although  it might seem like I'm bitter, not gonna lie kinda am I'll take what i can get and make it work, just wish some of these companies would pay us big guys and gals a little more attention and give us something stylish current and with a great fit!
