The Best Companion to Denim Next Fall? Shearling Coats

Good news for fans of the Ikea Monkey: shearling jackets are back.

One part retro, one part functional, shearling led outerwear trends at men’s fashion week where labels like Ami, Loewe and Y/Project paired the heavy-duty coats with jeans.

Ami zeroed in on the jacket’s ’70s roots with a rich brown leather coat trimmed with thick shearling cuffs and collar. Both Dsquared2 and Neil Barrett channeled an aged, pilot-inspired look to their shearling coats, with details like leather trim, buckles and zip pockets.

System offered a cropped version of a classic shearling coat, while Sacai and Songzio added length to their cozy pieces.

Designers took creative liberties with the unisex staple. JW Anderson presented a double-breasted shearling coat dress, while Loewe offered suede sheepskin-lined capes and boxy coats in its surrealist collection. Y/Project transformed classic suede shearling jackets into wearable art with detachable pieces, while shearling-lined scarves twisted tightly around models’ necks.

Others broke away from the traditional brown and black colorways. Etro presented a tomato red suede coat lined with monochromatic shearling. Kolor showed an oversized, deconstructed light-wash jean jacket lined with shearling.

The Fall/Winter 22-23 “It” item fits into the season’s gorpcore and après ski themes and ranked No. 8 on Tagwalk’s list of top 10 trends in men’s collections.
