Every man should have a great, go-to blazer. But one blazer – no matter how well tailored or comfortable – does not a wardrobe make. Sometimes it is cold and sometimes it is summer and sometimes you'll want to wear something a bit more colorful than your favorite grey tweed. Investing in a few sports coats is a practical measure and it doesn't have to be expensive. These coats, from 10 different retailers, are all worthy of a hanger and ready to wear to that next party, wedding, or work function. You'll still wear that old staple most of the time, but now you'll be ready for any occasion.
If you want something double breasted with a little bit of flare, A. OK is the brand for you. Right now they've got two styles at Oak NYC – one in black and the other in herringbone – both with contrasting wool underneath their collars. The coats are both slim and a little cropped, so you'll want to play close attention to the measurements. Still, they've got style in spades. [$198; oaknyc.com]
