What is a men's barn coat?

If you're looking for a durable jacket, try a Lands' End barn coat. Some say this outerwear staple was first made for farmers who needed a work coat that wouldn't rip or make them overheat, though others believe it was inspired by 19th century French laborers. Either way, it's a classic that looks as good in New York City as it does in Vermont, and our version is built to last.

The exterior of our barn coat has a corduroy collar and is made with tough canvas that's available in four handsome colors. It can also withstand water and wind, making it a natural choice for fall. Four pockets on the front mean there's room to store the essentials and warm your hands.

Inside our men's barn coat, you'll find a cozy cotton flannel lining and a locker loop for easy hanging. A full zipper and outer flap keep out the cold and wind, just like the button-close cuffs. Polyester inside the sleeves makes it simple to slip on and off, and reduces friction when you move.

A barn coat can be as relaxed or stylish as you want. Wear it with jeans and sneakers for a quick trip to the store. Add a cashmere scarf and leather Chelsea boots when you're feeling dapper. Whatever you choose, you're sure to look smart.

You might think a men's winter coat this versatile is hard to care for. There's no need to stress, though. When it's time to clean it, a quick trip through the washing machine is all it needs to be fresh as new.
