10 Toasty Overshirts That Are Perfect For Fall

Lighter than a jacket, but brawnier than a shirt.


Overshirt…shirt jacket…”shacket”…whatever you wanna call it, they’re an essential piece as we transition into cooler months.

An overshirt is cut like a button-up shirt that’s built sturdy and thick like a jacket (often with wool). You know when you can’t decide whether it’s cool enough for a jacket or too cold for just a shirt? That’s when you’ll want to enlist the help of the “shacket.” 

Buy one of our 10 favorites, from top brands like Todd Snyder, J.Crew, Levi’s and Bonobos, below.

They also totally lend themselves to layering, which is what fall is really all about. It’s no wonder you see these things infiltrating street style blogs left and right—you can mix and match yours for a truly one-of-a-kind look.
