    25 Menswear Items Reviewers Truly Love

    Comfort, practicality, and style...these reviewers have found all three.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A full-zip fleece vest you can wear as a top layer when it's just a little chilly outside, or as a base layer when the time comes to truly bundle up.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Wore out my old fleece vest (8+ years) and needed to find one to replace it so onto Amazon I go. This vest popped up and for the price and ability to try it and return it if I don't like it, what the heck, $20 is worth at least a try. Well, I have to say I was surprised at the quality of the material, the quality of the construction and the fit. They had the color I wanted (Forest Green) in stock and the color matched what I thought it would be. I've been wearing the vest since it arrived a couple of days ago and so far, it's comfortable and warm." —Trebor

    Get it from Amazon for $5.90+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and 19 colors/patterns).

    2. A noniron, wrinkle-free shirt for anyone who, like me, haphazardly shoves their clothing in their suitcase on trips and is too lazy to pick up an iron.

    Promising review: "Nice looking shirt at an even nicer price. Got this shirt about a month ago. For the price, it’s a great buy. Washes well and holds shape well. Overall great looking shirt for a very low price." —TomH

    Get it from Jos. A. Bank for $14.99 (originally $45; available in sizes S-XL including big and tall sizes).

    3. And a pair of casual, noniron pants to pair with your wrinkle-free button-down.

    Jos. A. Bank

    These pants have a tailored fit, flat front, and a touch of stretch.

    Promising reviews: "Great pants — casual but very elegant. Great look, fit, fabric." —Clay J.

    "Excellent feel and fit! You simply can’t find better quality at this price." —Andrew

    Get them from Jos. A. Bank for $59 (available in sizes 32x30-42x30 including big and tall sizes and seven colors).

    4. A Champion sweatshirt in an ultra-soft cotton fleece that'll quickly become your go-to sporty layer.

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "Great sweater. Champion never fails to have great quality. Thick and stylish sweater. Will be great for fall and winter." —Alex_03_13_02

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $54 (available in sizes XS-XXL and five colors).

    5. A pair of Ugg slippers perfect for TV watching, mail fetching, pancake making — you name it.

    amazon.com

    These slippers feature a sheepskin lining, a premium suede upper, and a 100% leather outsole, which means these slippers = super warm and cozy.

    Promising review: "For a long time I've been on a search for a good pair of winter slippers. Wasted so much money on stuff that just doesn't last, because it's made out of synthetic materials. These feel incredible! So comfy and warm. My feet do not sweat as in some synthetic slippers, and they look so good. They are a bit expensive, but if you pay a bit more once as opposed to buying a new pair of cheap slippers each season it's worth the investment. The only downside I can think of with these slippers is, if you get them, you'll be so comfortable that you won't want to leave the house. Great product! Highly recommend." —Michael

    Get them from Amazon for $79.95+ (available in sizes 7-18 and five colors).

    6. A stylish moto jacket to wear with literally everything in your closet this fall.

    Men's Wearhouse

    This jacket features features two zip chest pockets and a quilted lining.

    Promising review: "I bought this jacket two weeks ago with a couple pairs of shoes. I knew the jacket was going to be nice, but I didn't expect it to fit so well and feel so expensive. It's much better than my (more expensive) brown leather jacket I've been wearing for years. The price might make some people uncomfortable, but it's more than worth it. The leather feels soft as butter, the quilted inside is very comfortable, and it fits like it was custom tailored." —kenoshakid

    Get it from Men's Wearhouse for $179.99 (available in sizes S-XXL, including big and tall sizes).

    7. A pair of Dickie's cutoff work pants with a straight leg fit and cropped, raw hem that, according to at least one reviewer, might just be the best pair of pants you've ever owned.

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising reviews: "THE BEST PANTS IVE EVER OWNED. PERIOD. Dress them up or down. I love the structured, stiff fit. Bought in every color." —sflacali

    "These pants are such a nice addition to my closet, I ordered the white pair first and fell in love! Now I have three pairs and don’t plan on stopping there!" —kyion

    Get them from Urban Outfitters for $49 (available in sizes 30-36 and 11 colors)

    8. A Carhartt pocket T-shirt to round out the workwear-inspired wardrobe you've been curating over the past few months.

    Model wearing Carhartt shirt
    Amazon

    These T-shirts are high quality and ultra-durable; they're literally made for people working in the toughest conditions.

    Promising review: "These shirts are perfect! Great quality for a great price and are also shipped well. I’ve bought several of these and will continue to buy more. They also are very durable and last for a long time. Great working shirts or just nice T-shirts." —Kristenw329

    Get one from Amazon for $13+ (available in sizes S-5X, including tall sizes, and 24 colors).

    9. A pair of dressy-ish Cole Haan lace-ups that are half sneaker, half dress shoe.

    Men's Wearhouse

    They provide style for when you do leave the house (and are perfectly acceptable to sport with more formal clothes), but reviewers note just how comfortable they are making them a great hybrid shoe to add to your rotation.

    Promising review: "Great shoes for formal and casual events. First time buying Cole Haans, they're just as comfortable as sneakers. Shipping was quick, shoes have great style. One can wear these all day long. Been using for a week, I like these a lot, will probably buy another pair!" —babar

    Get them from Men's Wearhouse for $99.99 (originally $129; available in sizes 7-13 and three colors)

    10. A flannel shirt that's just heavy enough, meaning you can rock it on its own or use it as an ultra-warm, cold-weather layer.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Rarely do I take the time to write reviews, however, when a product just blows me away and pleasantly surprises me the way this shirt did, I just have to... Back in the '90s I used to collect Eddie Bauer flannel shirts, and I loved them and their quality. However, through the years, their quality has deteriorated and their shirts are just not what they used to be (while their cost has risen to near ridiculous levels). Flannel shirts are supposed to be roomy and you shouldn't have to buy 1 or 2 sizes larger just to get a classic look. Plus flannel should be thick, and warm, not thin and looking like something that won't make it past the first wash. Well this Legendary Whitetails flannel shirt addresses all those points and more than met the very highest of expectations, at a very affordable price point. Will be ordering more now." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in sizes S-5XL including tall sizes and 21 patterns/colors).

    11. A J.Crew Factory long-sleeve henley that's a best-seller for a reason! Customers mention how nicely it holds up in the wash and appreciate its all-around versatility.

    J. Crew Factory

    Promising review: "The long-sleeve henley is great. Fits perfect, doesn't shrink or fade. Really like that the neck isn't big, fits nice and snug." —Donald

    "Great piece to add to wardrobe. Wore it to dinner with washed denim jeans, tan chukkas. Then threw on the classic navy blue blazer and guess what? Boom! Right on point!" —Mitch

    Get them from J.Crew Factory for $19.50 (originally $49.50, available in sizes XS-XXL and 10 colors).

    12. A pair of Old Navy joggers with built-in flex and a drawstring waist that are just as comfortable as sweatpants — I would even venture to say they're suitable for your work wardrobe?!

    Old Navy

    Promising review: "I LOVE Joggers!!! I've purchased them from ON in the past and I find these to be the best!! The fabric has a little stretch, the perfect combination. Please keep this design and make it a permanent part of the staple pieces I can count on." —handsome

    Get them from Old Navy for $39.99 (available in sizes S-XL, including big and tall sizes and six colors).

    13. A Tommy Hilfiger sport coat because there's never a wrong time to update your dressier pieces.

    Men's Wearhouse

    Promising reviews: "Nice jacket, Fits very nicely. Material is not really sheen, a little course...nice jacket for fall or winter." —Wayman A

    "FANTASTIC JACKET!!! Fits perfectly and can go with any attire. Business or casual." —Aaron C

    Get it from Men's Wearhouse for $119 (available in sizes 36S-54R and three colors)

    14. A short-sleeve button-down shirt in a variety of fun patterns so you're prepared to take the heat in style on your next vacation or when summer rolls around again.

    Bonobos

    Promising reviews: "It just fits right. I don't have to be between being uncomfortable when I sit down or having something too big at the shoulders." —DadBod

    "Your shirts far succeed in very comfortable linen, love the designs, very unique!!" —Timbo

    Get it from Bonobos for $18+ (originally $78; available in sizes 2XL-4XL and 31 colors/patterns).

    15. An H&M topcoat that works equally well with a dress shirt and chinos M-F as it does a hoodie and joggers on the weekends.

    HM

    Promising reviews: "Well-made and good quality materials. The jacket is thick and perfect for the cold." —H&M customer

    "Very soft lining with plenty of pocket room. Keeps me warm on cold days and doesn’t over heat me when the sun is out. Lovely coat!" —H&M customer

    Get it from H&M for $119.20 (originally $149; available in sizes 32R-50R and four colors).

    16. An Under Armour compression mock to keep you nice and warm during all your cold-weather endeavors. Think morning runs, snow blowing, ice fishing, snowboarding — these'll keep you warm AND wick away sweat.

    Under Armour

    Promising review: "I always have trouble finding something that is warm enough for those high 40s to high 50s temperature ranges when walking or riding my bike. I don't like to start out too cold and then, get too hot, either. (Call me Goldilocks!) This is my go-to piece. Great fit. Does a wonderful job of keeping me warm/cool at same time by wicking away moisture. Very comfortable. Could wear it just walking around or hanging out. Can't wait to wear it as my base layer snowboarding this winter, too." —honoluludon

    Get it from Under Armour for $49.99 (available in sizes S-4XL including tall sizes and six colors).

    17. A pair of Nice Laundry pocket lounge shorts that are basically every positive adjective you'd want to think of when it comes to investment loungewear: comfortable, breathable, big pockets, the perfect length — I can't stop jumping with joy in mine.

    Nice Laundry, Griffin Gonzales / BuzzFeed

    I recently got their colorblock fun short, and I must say, they are hands-down the most comfortable lounge shorts of all time. They somehow have the breathability of nylon basketball shorts, but also have a just-warm-enough fleece-like lining that sets them apart from other athletic shorts. You can also have them personalized with a letter or symbol of your choice (and believe me, you'll need to do this because everyone in your household is going to end up purchasing multiple pairs and you'll need to be able to differentiate who's whose).

    Promising review: "These shorts are absolutely incredible! I wear mine almost everyday when after I get home from work. They are so beyond comfortable. They fit true to size, are the perfect length and will be the best decision you’ve ever made to buy them. I would rate them 10 stars if I could. I have since bought two pairs of every color since my first purchase!!" —Levi V.

    Get them from Nice Laundry for $42 or $49 for the personalized and customized pairs (available in sizes S-XL and four colors).

    18. Or a long underwear set that'll keep you incredibly warm without needing a ton of extra layers.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Instead of overcompensating by warming up with hot showers, running around, double jackets, triple T-shirts, winter caps, neck warmers, sweatpants, triple socks, and/or even gloves, now I can just throw on these Thermajohns over my briefs, and with only the addition of socks and periodically a winter cap, I can remain incredibly snug all day long in my home. Bring it on, Winter power outages! I bought two pairs of these, would recommend them to anyone, and will likely buy more in the near future." —Brian Dempsey

    Get them from Amazon for $19.98+ (available in sizes S-4XL and six colors).

    19. A pair of Wolverine work boots durable enough to handle the messiest of conditions (whether that's a construction site or wilderness adventure, I'll leave it up to you).

    Amazon

    Promising reviews: "I have bought other brands that cost more and I like the Wolverines best for my purposes. They seem to last longer and take less time to break in. Before I begin using them I wipe two coats of mink oil on them to preserve the leather. I also use KG's toe guard to get more life. For tile work and home construction these are my favorite boots." —david g.

    "This boot is really smooth, I can even say you can use these to go out. I’ve gotten so many compliments at work for wearing these. They’re comfortable, they’re clean. Would buy again." —Ulysses

    Get them from Amazon for $99.95+ (available in sizes 7-14 include wide sizes).

    20. A Levi's sherpa-lined trucker jacket for a cold-weather take on the classic denim jacket.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Good Jacket for fall/winter. I would say this is an essential piece for any wardrobe. Not too heavy, not too light. Good for everyday use especially in the colder months. You can easily put this jacket on over a hoodie, no worries and it still won’t add too much weight like some jackets. The only thing is that it restricts your movement around the arms a little bit but I understand it has to be worn in so it will fit much looser. Overall a solid piece. Can’t go wrong with Levi’s." —Wayne De Leon

    Get it from Amazon for $58+ (available in sizes XS-3X, including big & tall sizes, and 13 washes).

    21. A hoodie in a soft-fleece knit likely to become your all-time, always-on favorite (don't just take my word for it, the review below is pretty convincing).

    Gap

    Promising review: "Some would say I'm a world renown hoodie connoisseur. To that I would agree. I've obtained hoodies from across the globe, yet none have surprised me as this one. I sat alone browsing the site hunting for a hoodie to add to the collection and lo and behold I came across this one. I scoured numerous reviews, each one insisting adamantly of the softness of the pullover. A hoodie couldn't be that soft right? Wrong. I sat eagerly in my chair as the doorbell rang. I did the mad dash towards the doorknob as I viciously tore it open. It was here. I gripped the package with force as I slammed it on the table. As my hand gripped the sleeve I couldn't believe it. I do not know how Gap managed to do it, but I'm convinced that they asked God himself for a piece of heavenly cloud. This is the softest material on a hoodie I've ever come across, and trust me I've been globetrotting for hoodies like Indiana Jones. As I put the hoodie on it clung to me, completing me like Peter Parker and the venom suit in Spider-Man 3. It made me feel warm and safe inside like a New York coffee shop on a rainy Tuesday. All in all, I would highly recommend this hoodie." —sailboat4

    Get it from Gap for $44.95 (available in sizes XS-XXXL including tall sizes, and eight colors)

    22. A long-sleeve waffle knit with elastic cuffs and a straight hem that make it perfect for layering under a vest or flannel.

    Promising review: "These are great waffle-knit shirts. Fit is as expected. Have held up to all washes. I wear the sleeves pushed up frequently and the cuffs have even resisted stretching out so far." —sp1D55

    Get it from Amazon for $15.89+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and five colors).

    23. A timeless turtleneck sweater that'll always be appropriate whenever you can't decide what to wear.

    Jos. A. Bank

    Promising reviews: "Having dressed in button-down shirts — for business, work, and casual occasions — for so long, choosing to break my mold by pairing a wool turtleneck and mock neck sweaters with suit and suit separates was worth the change. These sweaters are very comfortable and warm. With this sweater and my sport coat, I didn't even need an overcoat, at least in mild winter weather." —Martin

    "This sweater fits well and feels great! I would definitely purchase again!" —James

    Get it from Jos. A. Bank for $55 (available in sizes S-XL, including big & tall sizes, and two colors).

    24. A fleece beanie because keeping your head and ears warm isn't that deep — this one's soft, affordable, and comes in a handful of cool colors.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I recently traveled well north into Canada... north of Quebec City. I purchased this hat specifically for the trip. The weather was COLD and SNOWY. I'm talking about snow drifts that cover entire fronts of two story houses, and below zero temperatures. We went snow tubing, dog sledding, visited an Ice Hotel, and I wore this hat every day, all day, for the entire five day trip. The hat was wind proof, comfortable and very warm. I wasn't cold at all. Highly recommend." —buzsnyder

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    25. And a packable puffer jacket you can fold into a little carrying bag, which makes dressing for the weather easier than ever — no matter how drastically the temp fluctuates throughout the day.

    amazon.com, amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "This jacket is super light and warm and comfortable. It fits as expected and is true to size. There is room to layer underneath but the jacket does not look or feel over-sized either. The fit looks very much like it does on the model. Perfect for Northern California winters. The style and material is attractive. Very happy with this jacket." —Memly

    Get it from Amazon for $50.08+ (available in S-XXL and 23 colors)
