Duffle Coats, which were first made popular by the British Royal Navy in World War I and II, have made their way back to the forefront of winter style in recent years, and this winter is no different. Recognized by their large hoods and toggle buttons, duffle coats are the essence of classic cool in the frigid months.
These days the cuts are cleaned up to fit a little slimmer, but the British badass feel is still present. Think James Bond sailing the Arctic Ocean meets New York street style. Here are our favorite 23 styles of mens jackets to help you summon your inner Naval Officer this year, our favorites include an impeccably tailored coat from Brooklyn Tailors, and a “keep you warm in 10 below” coat from White Mountaineering.
Uniqlo Wool Blended Duffle Coat
The best price you’ll find on a stylish duffle coat this winter. Uniqlo offers this jacket in three colors, navy (pictured above), dark grey, and camel duffle coat.
Barney’s Wool Duffle Coat
Available for an absolute steal on Asos, this Barney’s Original soft wool duffle coat is an amazing deal. The cut is shorter than traditional duffle coats, giving this a younger, more modern feel.
Zara Short Coat with Toggles
Zara’s take on the duffle switches it up by using a cotton and polyester blend instead of the traditional wool. While this takes away from the heritage of the coat, it keeps the price at an attainable level. Plus, we’re digging the sportier look this fabric brings to the table.
Asos Black Wool Duffle Coat for Men
Simple black and white with a price tag worth getting excited about. Plus, we love Asos, and their in-house label is done with designer precision. This is literally the perfect duffle coat.
Gap Wool Duffle Coat
Sometimes Gap really comes through, and this is one of those times. The simple design is great, we love the texture and detailing, and the hood gives it a little pop of color.
Gloverall Duffle Coat in Melton Wool
We can’t help but love the army green on the navy jacket, it just fits. Plus the added details, like the twisted loops for the toggles, just bring the whole coat up a notch.
Gloverall Duffle Coat
We loved the last coat so much we had to give its burgundy brother a shoutout as well. This will definitely set you apart from the black, navy and grey crowds, but will earn you some major style points at the same time. It’s clean, it’s put together, and it’s ultimately a sweet fuckin’ jacket.
Brooklyn Tailors Shetland Tweed Duffle Coat
If you don’t know Brooklyn Tailors, it’s about damn time you get acquainted. These guys are known for putting out some badass suits and great shirts to match. Apparently they also know a thing or two about great outerwear.
White Mountaineering Houndstooth Gore-Tex Duffle Coat
Made with a water-resistant Gore-Tex and wool blend, this jacket is not only dapper as ever, but function in all the best ways. Made to keep you warm, dry, and sophisticated, it definitely warrants its hefty price tag.
Saint Laurent Wool Duffle Coat
The pinnacle of the designer duffles, this Saint Laurent coat is by far our favorite. With no added frills or details, the perfect simplicity speaks for itself. While it may not be YSL anymore, it still holds the same standard of excellence as always, and this duffle coat is no different.
Boohoo Wool Hooded Duffle Coat for Men
This duffle coat from Boohoo is one of the best you can get on a budget. For $70 you’ll be both warm and cozy this winter without having to compromise on your sharp style.
Bellfield Wool Duffle Coat
If you’re looking to add some flair to your classic duffle coat, then this Bellfield coat we found on Asos just might do the trick. On top of being kind of badass, it’s also on sale for $72.01.
Montgomery Classic Duffle Coat
Montgomery duffle coat is mid length, has a classic shape and is made out of wool. This is a piece of English hand-made heritage since they don’t make many on the Island anymore.
Gant Down Duffle Coat
The Gant down duffel coat in a cotton blend features a snap closure with rope toggles, felt accents at the yoke, detachable hood with a buttoned collar strap, and snap front pockets. We love the fusion of a down jacket and duffle style coat.
Saint Laurent Designer Wool Duffle Coat
The duffle coat was adopted by the British Navy in World War I thanks to its practical features, and this Saint Laurent version has the same utilitarian feel in a stylish package. Crafted from weighty wool-felt and finished with a protective hood, it’ll see you through the winter season with aplomb.
MSGM Duffle Coat
This MSGM duffle coat is a perfect example of impeccable tailoring and precise details. If you’re all about keeping your look neat then this coat is a must buy!

Another awesome duffle coat from Gloverall! This is a contemporary re-working of the classic and famous Monty Duffle Coat, a silhouette that rose to prominence during the war, and is still regarded as many as the best example of this style.
Stella Jean Tweed Duffle Coat
For the gentlemen who love their tweed suits and blazers, this Stella Jean duffle coat will be a delight. You can pair it with your workwear or some blue denim and you’re guaranteed to rock it!

We love Sandro for its contemporary tailoring and this duffle coat brings just that – some contemporary edge. It’s both relaxed and timeless, a truly great investment piece.
