Types of Men’s Western Jackets
Pinto Ranch brings you an impressive collection of Western jackets. Whether you are looking for a casual jacket for everyday wear or a style that elevates an outfit for professional or formal events, let’s take a look at the different types of Western jackets that will work in your wardrobe. There are many different styles from shorter, tighter-fitting cowboy jackets to longer, loose-fitting Western coats. They all have one thing in common: they are meant to layer with other clothing for warmth while adding a classic style to an outfit.
Denim: A denim jacket is a closet staple and a style every well-dressed man should have in his fashion lineup. This classic is timeless and looks great with everything. Denim is stylish and durable and available in a variety of colors, cuts, and collars. A lighter-weight denim is ideal for doubling as a suit jacket and a heavier-weight jacket with a warm lining can easily replace a bulky winter coat. Wear a denim jacket with jeans and a pullover for a casual look. Pair with khakis and a sweater for a dinner date.
Leather: A leather jacket is another closet staple that will always be in style. Wearing a leather jacket displays your sense of fashion, sophistication, and sensibility. Leather is a natural insulator and will keep you comfortable whatever the temperature. It is a tried and true material that will withstand the test of time and trends. Whether you go for a classic, fitted cut, a fuller bomber silhouette, or a longer length with removable linings, Pinto Ranch has a signature, wear-with-anything, leather style for you.
Suede: Elevate your fashion sense with a sophisticated suede Western jacket. Similar to leather, this timeless material is a natural insulator and will keep you comfortable at any temperature. Suede is extremely durable and lightweight, but it’s the luxurious texture and understated rich appearance that makes this fabric an all-season standout. Wear a suede jacket with everything in your wardrobe from your favorite jeans to dressy slacks. The bottom line is suede is a do-it-all-for-you investment piece that whether dressed up or dressed down, makes you feel relaxed and look well put together.
Wool: One of the most popular and proven materials throughout time, wool tops the chart for men’s outerwear jackets. A winter classic, wool is one of the most searched especially for colder weather months. They are sure to keep you warm in the coldest conditions. Typically designed to be roomy for comfortable layering wool coats are perfect for wearing over a suit for professional and more formal events but equally appropriate for casual occasions when keeping warm is key.
Canvas: Canvas Western jackets for men are versatile, and add a gentlemen-inspired fashion to your look. Canvas should not be overlooked as a practical staple in your wardrobe. This durable heavier fabric is water-resistant for outdoor protection. Whether you desire to blend in our stand-out, there is a canvas jacket for you. Ideal for cooler weather the lined wax appearance allows you to layer, mix and match with other wardrobe staples to create different looks.

How to Care for Men's Western Jackets
It’s important that you take care of and condition your men’s Western jacket to keep it looking its best. It is always a good idea to check the care label on your jacket as each brand and material is different. That said, a few simple tips will preserve your jacket’s integrity and appearance. Take a look at our recommendations:
- Leather and suede jackets should be cleaned with a soft brush or cloth to remove any dirt or debris.
- If something is spilled on your jacket use a soft damp cloth to blot the area. Avoid rubbing as it may spread the stain and damage the fabric.
- Apply a leather conditioner or suede protector to maintain the suppleness of the material.
- If your jacket becomes wet, let it dry naturally and avoid exposing it to heat sources such as radiators or hairdryers.
- Store your jacket in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. Use a hanger with shoulder protectors.
