There’s nothing like finding a comfortable and stylish sheepskin jacket that works with both dressy and casual outfits, and plenty of celebrity men out there are catching on to the trend. Gone are the days of trench coats and pea coats; more and more men are turning to authentic shearling for their winter outwear. Here at The Sheepherder, we pride ourselves on handcrafting beautiful and durable authentic sheepskin coats for women and men, that fit great and will last for years to come. Read on to learn about some of the most popular men’s sheepskin jackets out there, and how you can get the look for less at The Sheepherder!
When The Dark Knight Rises hit theaters last year, everyone wanted to get their hands on a cool sheepskin jacket like the one the villain, Bane, wore in the film. Although the coat was made specifically for Bane (played by Tom Hardy), it’s an almost identical match to a shearling jacket that cropped up on the runway of designer Ermenegildo Zegna’s Fall 2012 collection that same year. Unfortunately, this particular coat will cost you around $4,000, unlike our Men’s Long Classic sheepskin jacket, which can be yours for $1,200. This traditional town coat is cut to knee length, similar to Bane’s jacket, and features oversized pockets and a generous shawl collar to keep you warm in the winter chill.
Actor and funnyman Russell Brand has an eclectic sense of style when it comes to clothing, but you can’t argue with his choice to step out in a warm and stylish Rick Owens sheepskin jacket from the Fall 2010 collection. A men’s shearling jacket identical to the one Brand is wearing would set you back between $2,000 and $3,000, but you can get a similar coat at The Sheepherder for far less. Take a look at our Men’s Classic sheepskin coat, which is a shorter version of the jacket we mentioned above. Perfect for dress or casual wear, this shearling jacket features oversized pockets and a leather-trimmed collar and cuffs for a stylish and cozy finish.
Even British soccer star and international style icon David Beckham dons a sheepskin coat when the weather turns brisk. Back in December 2010, Becks was spotted at a match between Manchester United and Arsenal, and he was bundled up in, what else, a trendy leather coat with sheepskin lining and a large shawl collar. We can imagine that David Beckham paid a pretty penny for his sheepskin jacket, but if you’d like to get the look for less, check out our custom-made Men’s Cattleman shearling coat at The Sheepherder. The prominent shawl collar on this jacket matches David Beckham’s, and the finished seams and western yoke in the back give the garment a masculine, tailored look that any guy will love.
