Michael B. Jordan's Coat is the First Great Thanksgiving Weekend Flex of 2018

A feast for the eyes.

If you’re interested in weird sneakers or know who Luka Sabbat is, you probably find style to be a nuanced thing. If you’re less committed to fashion, it’s much simpler. It’s making sure your jeans are from the right decade. Maybe buying something nice at a store like A.P.C. every five years. Our coverman Michael B. Jordan’s choice of winter coat will appeal to both crews (and the folks in the middle too). The menswear nerds will see it as a simple but sharp weekend flex. The basics-lovers will see it as a way to turn the volume up without going full Zoolander. Everyone is right.

The coat is the kind of big, badass, plaid style we’ve talked about a lot over the last two years. It’s more assertive and attention-grabbing than the basic black topcoat you can find at any mall store but is still rooted in a classic place. Your dorky dad and your hypebeast brother will both understand and approve when they see you wearing it over Thanksgiving weekend, which is a move you should definitely make. Alternatively, it’d make an excellent thing to seek out on Black Friday and Cyber Monday at a discount.

As for how to wear it, we dig Michael B. Jordan’s all-black, simple base layers, and we suspect most guys will see the appeal in that kind of approach too, but what you wear under the coat is ultimately up to you. If you’re big into luxury, logo-stamped track suits or neon cashmere T-shirts and white jeans, by all means, go for it. This coat can hang with anyone and anything. It’s that good.
