“Jacket weather” can be practically any day now thanks to the timeless look of men’s coats over the last few centuries. Thick wool coats that once kept 18th century sailors warm while at sea today dot the sidewalks of our biggest cities. Denim jackets that popped from the cattle country of the Southwest quickly became fashion statements around the world. If you’re looking to upgrade your outerwear, here are four timeless jackets we recommend for men.

If you're curious, a pea coat is based on English and Colonial American navy coats, which extended below the waist. Mentions of them in newspaper ads date all the way back to the 1700s. Obviously intended for the most inclimate weather, they're warm but also super stylish and work equally well with formal or casual outfits.

Jean jackets from Levi Strauss date back to the 1880s, so if someone calls you "old school," they don't know the half of it. It may conjure up visions of the Marlboro Man or the entire starting lineup of the 1984 University of Texas Longhorns football team, but the jacket's popularity hasn't waned over the decades - it's still a nearly perfect accessory any time of the year. This particular Levi's jacket is 100 percent imported cotton with button closure and adjustable waistband and cuffs.

It's hard to believe this very distinct jacket survived the 1980s, but it did. The brand was created back in 1975 and prospered in the '80s thanks to never-ending celebrity endorsements. After its initial popularity faded by the end of the decade, the brand was re-licensed in the 2010s and now is considered chic again.

If this jacket gives the impression that its wearer will soon be tackling some epic mountain climb, that's not a coincidence.

Put your high-climbing theatrics on hold and sport this jacket on windy, wintery days.
