My Outerwear Collection (8 Essential Pieces)

1550 ratings | 92974 views
UPDATED COLLECTION: https://youtu.be/noS38uCgYWI In this video, I show you my entire outerwear collection, from the lightweight windbreaker to the heavy duty parka. People often ask me about the best outerwear for short men. It's hard to give a specific answer because shorter gents come in different shapes and sizes. But I'll show you what works for me and where I shop for outerwear. — MY OUTERWEAR COLLECTION: #1: Nylon windbreaker - sold out #2: Lightweight vest - http://rstyle.me/n/b7q3qwn4v6 * #3: Field jacket - http://bit.ly/2gsLyAQ #4: Leather jacket - http://mdst.mn/2grPFwG #5: Mid-weight jacket - sold out #6: Camel topcoat - http://rstyle.me/n/b8f2a6n4v6 * #7: Charcoal topcoat - http://rstyle.me/n/b8f2den4v6 (similar) * #8: Parka - http://geni.us/N0wOa * — For some people, 8 jackets is super minimal. Others might think it's way too much outerwear for one man. But between these 8 pieces of outerwear, I'm covered for every type of weather and every occasion. You'll notice that I don't have a peacoat or a puffer jacket. Though these are super popular, I think it's hard to find pea coats and puffer jackets that look good on the shorter man. For that reason, I stick with alternatives like topcoats and parkas. — MY GEAR ▪ Canon T6i → http://geni.us/4kSX ▪ Laptop → http://fave.co/2hgKaDF ▪ Laptop stand → http://fave.co/2vQwBj3 ▪ Lens #1 (50mm) → http://geni.us/OiE9 ▪ Lens #2 (10-18mm) → http://geni.us/qgGQckE ▪ Lens #3 (24mm) → http://geni.us/x61A ▪ Lav mic → http://geni.us/ZBlvGh ▪ Desk mic → http://geni.us/wCdS7t2 — YOUTUBE MUSIC → https://goo.gl/UhwtMb — STYLE GUIDES ▪ Free E-Books → http://mdst.mn/guide-pack ▪ Premium Guide → http://mdst.mn/tmmsg — FOLLOW ME ▪ Podcast → http://fave.co/2vej94M ▪ Instagram → https://www.instagram.com/modestmanstyle/ ▪ Twitter → https://twitter.com/modestmanstyle ▪ Facebook → https://www.facebook.com/modestmanblog/ ▪ Private Group → https://www.facebook.com/groups/modestmen — Contains affiliate links // Stay stylish!

Your online book was FANTASTIC!! Well worth the money I paid for it. I'm only 5'5" and have struggled massively with clothes my entire life. (I'm 44 now). Your book really opened my eyes. I just was clueless as to what I 'should' be doing to help manage my short stature with my style. I'm around 165 lbs so I'm pretty stocky with a fairly muscular build for my frame which only serves to further complicate things. And unfortunately gives me a squatty look. Anyway, I could ramble on for hours talking about my insecurities, my being bullied and derided, and my total lack of fashion knowledge; but I mostly just wanted to throw a huge sincere THANK YOU your way for taking the time to put together and amazing guide book for the vertically impaired. PS: I'm heading to banana republic tomorrow to stock up on some Chinos and jeans. (I threw pretty much my entire closet Out 4 days ago and have very little to wear now. Lol)

The Modest Man (1 year ago)
Your comment made my day! Thank you. I'm glad the guide was helpful. I know the feeling of realizing most of your clothes aren't going to work anymore and having to "cleanse" the wardrobe. It's a lot of work but also fun, and well worth it. Keep me updated on your progress!

Denim?
The Modest Man (2 hours ago)
I’ve never felt comfortable in a denim jacket for some reason.
Christopher Foley (21 days ago)
Once again, just spot on advice for you younger gents. Being 5'6" without shoes, I have followed the curated approach to most of my clothing, but especially Outerwear. Over the years I have have purchased the following: Camel Hair overcoat, single breasted (SB) for all occasions, wool herringbone chesterfield with velvet collar for dress, trench coat with zip out liner, great for travel in winter, Navy peacoat, and a ski parka. All are top quality, all have lasted a minimum of 20 years. Short guys, listen to this man, stay conservative in color, cut and style.

I just got a SS field jacket how fitted should they be? Mine it's definitely not for layering and that is not my intention since a have pea coats for.colder days, I wanted mostly as rain jacket but it does fit like a a fitted sport coat, not even with a sweater. Everything it has perfect fit

Nice! I was wondering because your jacket still look as new in your "6 Expensive Products That Are Worth The Money" video. How often do you wear it? I was thinking of buying one but am worry about its longevity.

Thanks! I don’t do anything to it (at least not yet).
Jackman LeBlanc (7 months ago)
My favorite outerwear item I own is pea coat I got from H&M. It's from H&M of course, so it's probably kind of crap, but I'll wear it out until it's no good anymore and I can afford something better. I'd also love to get a topcoat like the camel one you have here. I really love coats like that.
JordanMandas Official (8 months ago)
There isn’t a video like this for men who are a more average height 😫 a lot of the advice carries over anyway but a great video on forming a complete outerwear collection would be great

I think the two you're missing that are 'staples' are a... 1. Bomber Jackets (Although I don't like bombers so I don't really care about that) 2. A denim jacket which I think is a great layering piece if you ask me!

1) Bomber jacket 2) Trench coat 3) Down jacket I also have that camel Banana Republic topcoat and it's great. Great channel! Just found it

What is missing? I know, the trench coat and maybe a (suede) bomber jacket or baseball jacket. I love my field jacket too, a whole lot more than the stylish suede bomber jacket (I sold it, it was too short for me, I am too tall). Nice video btw.
Chris Giallonardo (1 year ago)
Brock what size is the Walker vest? Thanks
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
XS
I lamment the trend towards shorter long coats, it's oxymoronic and diminishes it's function, the shorter the long coat the less of you it protects from elements, idea of warm and toasty too amd freezing or we and coats knee to ankle isn't appeing, the good thing about being shorter is that we can still find coats that are more traditional, I prefer mid shin or even close to ankle like old school great coats, Either way cool overview I'm late to this party but season shifting so your overview is seasonally appropriate again :-) Ps the dark navy two layer top coat is killer nice man, these coats (trench ,overcoat top coat etc) are my favorite big ticket items, and you nailed it w that one and the camel one too

The Modest Man (1 year ago)
+van basten j crew or any mainstream brand with a field jacket (club Monaco, Ralph Lauren, BR, etc). At 6’2” most brands should fit well.

when you say short do you mean like 170ish cm or do you really mean short? are you serious ??? lol 5"9" is one you consider short ... lol i am 6"1" and where i am from (israel) i am considered pretty tall but in your standards i am just above average i guess ... you really underestimate yourself 5"9" is not short

Hey Brock, I'm late to the party, but I expected you to have a harrington from Baracuta or Grenfell. Actually Nordstrom has a nice harrington for pennies on the dollar by comparison. Now is the time to pick these up too since we're in the off season for outerwear.

bomber jacket - recommend Theory Trench Coat Denim Jacket
Arthur Doctolero (1 year ago)
This is on point! I'm 5'7", 135 lbs built like a marathoner/amateur boxer. However, you forgot to include the timeless denim jacket which is simply great for summer. Do you advice wearing leather jacket on heavy, monsoon rain or would you recommend something else? I live in the Philippines, where climate is very similar to Singapore.
Arthur Doctolero (1 year ago)
The Modest Man Thanks Brock! Guess what, you've gained a subscriber and follower on IG!
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
I'd say no leather if it's going to rain. Go with a trench or nylon windbreaker (or a rain coat) and umbrella. You're built kind of like me, just a littler bigger. Nice!
Saddmun Ahsan (1 year ago)
Brock, how tall are you and what size leather jacket is that from Peter Manning... is that a 1? I'm asking because Im considering picking one up myself, and I'm 5'2'' and 115 lbs. Thanks!

Other viewers have asked for a fit video with the Alpha Industries parka. I was wondering about the sleeve length: the sleeves look very long.

Roger Wilco (1 year ago)
Gonna buy N-3B parka in sage green as well. Have a several options - one from Alpha Ind. and one from Spiewak. Which one can you recommend? And also what's your opinion - I'd like to stick to some kind of a preppy-classy look but I need something really warm in my closet, 'cause here, where I live, temperature sometimes falls below -4F°. So here comes the question - whether an N-3B parka is my choice or not at all?
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
I got an XS. See my latest vid for a fit check!
Roger Wilco (1 year ago)
+macdaddyyo regular XS, or slim fit S may suit you well (i guess)... Slim S, I think, will be better
macdaddyyo (1 year ago)
Sorry for the hijack but I have to ask what size did you get for the N-3B parka? I'm looking into buying one but sizing has been iffy across the net. I'm 5'7, ~145 lbs, 35 inch chest.Thanks love your vid!
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
I've never tried a Spiewak parka so can't compare. I think they can look pretty classic, but the N3-B has military details and a shine to it, so it might not be your best choice (although the fit is great).
Adel Hijazi (1 year ago)
On days when it does not snow or rain I wear the Peter Manning leather jacket. Yesterday at 12 degrees, just zip it up with one light long sleeve shirt underneath. It can be done but you have to be one with the cold lol.
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
+Adel Hijazi you're a braver man than I!
Adel Hijazi (1 year ago)
Also I got the J. Crew vest too, they fit so well! Going for the Tribeca field jacket in blue next
blopcant (1 year ago)
Hi there! awesome videos mate! which brands (and sizes) would you recommend for 1'65 m ? I have problems many times finding slim clothes that fit me properly. be it for the length or width. Thanks a lot!
Drew Barnett (1 year ago)
Most jeans never fit right . I am 5'6.5'' with a thicker thigh and waist. Any recommendations?
skhuynh13 (1 year ago)
I agree with Adel. It's hard to find jeans off the rack, so try finding a good tailor or someone who does alterations in your area. Find jeans that fit perfectly in the waist/thigh area and have the length and hem opening altered to your liking. If you prefer a slim fit, size up (I'm a size 36W, but I go with 38W for slim fit).
Adel Hijazi (1 year ago)
Try GAP taper fit. If it's too tight go a size up in waist and then get the waist brought in at a tailor
Louis Arvanites (1 year ago)
As someone who has practically every piece of his clothing professionally tailored, I can tell you first hand that your tailor is NOT doing a high quality i.e. professional job, your camel top coat is a perfect example. When shortening the length of the sleeves of a coat whether that coat be winter, or a suit jacket, the proper way to shorten the sleeve length is from the shoulder NOT at the cuff, by the cuff is a cheap, inexpensive and very unprofessional way of shortening your sleeve length.
Ujjwal Roy (1 year ago)

Arthur Doctolero (1 year ago)
Ujjwal Roy Bomber jacket is great for younger men, IMHO. For men ages 30-40 like me, parkas and coats are more suitable.
Justin Liu (1 year ago)
You really need a Mac. To me it's the blazer of outwear - instantly classes up any outfit. Equally at home with a t-shirt and jeans or a dress shirt and tie. Perfect for those of us in California where you don't need a really heavy jacket.
Justin Liu (1 year ago)
I've owned a couple from Banana Republic that I like and fit me OK (I'm 5'7"), and one I got from Kenneth Cole that I like quite a bit. Typically I'm looking for something pretty smooth and sleek for a mac.
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
Hmm never bought one...I'll check it out. Favorite brands?
Soaked Duck (1 year ago)
No Hoodie!? Nice video. I have a 48 inch chest and a 26 inch inseam, at 5'5" clothes off the rack are impossible.  Top coats & parkas hang to my knees and anything I can zip or button must have the cuffs rolled up. I appreciate your encouragement.  I don't mind being short, but I do hate looking like I need to grow into my clothes!
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
+Soaked Duck no hoodie right now. I don't find myself wearing them much, and most are too baggy for me.

I enjoyed your video. However, it looks like you're missing a good downhill ski jacket.
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
True. I used to have a really nice Northface ski jacket, but it eventually got too beat up to wear. It was also way to big, but it did the job on the mountain. I actually haven't been skiing in really cold weather in a few years, so I usually just layer up with a lighter jacket. Not ideal... any favorite brands?
Cleander Yu (1 year ago)
I've got a question for you Brock, what are you thoughts on roll neck sweaters for the autumn/winter season? I'm looking at something similar to this: https://www.npeal.com/mens/james-bond/cable-roll-neck-cashmere-sweater-as-seen-in-spectre-fumo-grey
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
Hmm I've never actually worn a sweater like this, but I think it would have more to do with shape than height. I imagine these would be good for guys with athletic builds and/or bigger necks/heads. On a guy like me (thin, relatively thin neck and smaller head), it probably wouldn't be very flattering.
JR Snyder Jr (1 year ago)
Where do live in the Southwest that you have seasons and need heavy outerwear? In Phoenix basically you need one or two light coats or jackets and layers. I really enjoy your videos for help in the shorter/slim category info and tips but weather wise bluntly most of the clothes don't apply. I've often thought if I were younger and into it I'd do a channel for warmer two season climates where casual wear is worn most often. Not being critical just curious. Maybe I'm the one off base and fashion clueless.
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
Crazy how much variation there is in one state (with weather AND culture). Thanks for the kind words!
JR Snyder Jr (1 year ago)
+The Modest Man Thanks for your reply. Interesting then because we live in the same state and I'm a native. Lived in Tucson many years and have family there and we are all originally from Prescott and Flagstaff. Climate is different in Phoenix (I don't live here by choice but necessity) due to urban heat island therefore and we get almost no rainy season unlike Tucson which has two. The climate in Tucson does change as does of course Northern Arizona and I spend no time east of New Mexico rather in the West and California. I do think that a lot of dress rules are thrown out of the window in Phoenix but that's for a variety of reasons I won't go into here. You're the best channel I've found so far on the topics you focus on and really appreciate what you do regarding advice for shorter men. I'm a lot more mature and many of these things I had to learn the hard way before there even was an internet. Good on ya for that. I also appreciate RMRS. I still learn a lot of new things though from you so keep it up.
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
+JR Snyder Jr I'm in Tucson, where it's in the 30s at night/early morning right now. But I spend lots of time in Flagstaff and back east where I'm from (DC), so I have lots of cold weather gear.

I look forward to cooler weather so i can wear my sleeveless vest. With a pair of good looking jeans and great pair of boots, you can't miss.
DL (1 year ago)
Love it Brock. One of my favorite topics. I agonized over the PM field jacket, but pulled the trigger on something a little heavier. Barbour makes a 'field coat' similar to the M65, they make a ton of styles names, i went with the Hemble. it has the drawstring and is my goto in leiu of a Parka. (sale on eBay saved big). I can layer with it and winter is covered. Love your Navy Over coat. On the Hemble, The hood is detachable so it actually looks less bulky than the photo. Keep up the good work! thank you http://www.orvis.com/p/barbour-hemble-jacket/2cyc

Ron B (1 year ago)
Have you looked at anything from MontBell? I don't know if their stuff may be the most fashionable but it is light, fits well and warm. If you go with the 850 and 900 down they are super light and not bulky at all.

Musa Kazmi (1 year ago)
I would check out asos. You do have to be smart when shopping on there because alot of their stuff isn't that great of quality. They have slim and skinny fits for denim jacekets. I got one in skinny fit because i am very skinny and it fits amazing!
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
I need to get into the denim jacket. Haven't found one that I feel comfortable in yet. Do you wear them?
JCrossover (1 year ago)
the pm field jackets look so good
Mami Burger (1 year ago)
Thanks!
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
In that case, I might go with navy. It's tough because they're both pretty versatile. Here are some more photos of each so you can get a better idea: Navy - http://www.themodestman.com/outfits/classic-fall-layering/ Olive - http://www.themodestman.com/guidomaggi-review/
Mami Burger (1 year ago)
+The Modest Man Navy in general, as well as other darker colors like gray, are better for me. Most of my wardrobe is navy ish. However, I do not have any jackets (i just layer with sweaters when it gets cold). So the field jacket would essentially be my "first jacket" that isn't a baggy oversized hand me down.
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
Tough call man. I have both and like the option to wear blue, which is super versatile. But if I had to pick one, I'd go with olive because it's more unique and kind of a classic color for a field jacket. But it depends on the rest of your wardrobe. Would navy be a better color for your palette?
Mami Burger (1 year ago)
the only problem is that now they have a blue color... I CAN'T decide between that and the green! Do you think buying both (if money wasn't an issue) is okay?
DeeKayLee (1 year ago)
That olive field jacket is definitely one of the best purchases I made. I even got it on sale back in February too! I saw it on your Instagram on multiple occasions and I was sold right there and then lol.
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
Sweet! Yeah it's still one of my favorites. I actually just got the navy blue one too...also great but I like the olive best.

G DJ (1 year ago)
Thanks, man. Maybe it's just my thought, but I think you're the only "image consultant" worth to follow on YouTube. Many others such as Antonio Centeno, Aaron Marino and fellows have lost the point: by now, their videos' aim is to persuade you to buy sponsored items, so you'll feel as cool as the model of perfection they want to convey. It should be all about giving useful tips, and the advertisement should lie on a second level. This is why I feel you're the best (and of course because I'm indeed quite short). Keep on the good work and sorry if my English isn't very neat (I'm Italian :) ).
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
I appreciate that! Yeah, I think it's hard to find the balance between ads, which are necessary for making a living, and educational content, which should be the main focus. I bet it's even harder when you get really big and people start offering you a lot of money. It's just hard to say no to that. But I know those guys, and they're good people. So I don't have anything against them or their methods. I'll always try hard to make sure my videos offer something of value, regardless of whether or not they're sponsored. Thanks for watching!

Giuliano de Julio I noticed that too. They revolve the entire video around the promotion

You're missing a bomber jacket, peacoat, and a trench coat?
TheAllenTube (1 year ago)
Could add a denim jacket!
EricsMode (1 year ago)
why thank you :D
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
Man that jacket is niiicee. Great vids btw!
EricsMode (1 year ago)
I still need to get those two. I'm keeping an eye on the Jcrew bomber either vintage navy or warm elm. The only downside to it is, it doesn't have any insulation and more like a windbreaker. https://www.jcrew.com/mens_category/outerwear/wallaceandbarnes/PRDOVR~C1174/C1174.jsp?color_name=vintage-navy

The two I had in mind were pea coat and puffer. But your'e right, a bomber and trench could definitely fit in this collection.

You need a bomber jacket and a pea-coat in my opinion.
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
Yeah man...wardrobe goals.

Awesome educational video! Thank you sir!

Welcome! Thanks for watching.

I am a 5'9" and tan colored guy. My body is regular. Do you think a camel overcoat would suit me? I feel like it will accentuate my shortness. Thanks and keep up the great work :)
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
That's one of them! I used to have one, but I replaced it with a topcoat a couple of years ago. Might get another pea coat if I can find one that fits really well.
Nelipod97 (1 year ago)
Thanks for the advice :) Also are you missing a Peacoat by any chance?
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
Given the choice between tan and charcoal, I think you should go with charcoal. Tan is a good second coat, but it's not quite as versatile or universally flattering as dark grey or navy.

Thanks for the tips. I am about your height. I have problems with sizes because I'm a stocky guy, about 165. What Jacket size is good for me on Peter Manning online store, the biggest is 4x?
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
Glad to hear that!
infoquestor (1 year ago)
The Modest Man , thanks, they were very helpful indeed.
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
+infoquestor I would call or email them and ask. They're very helpful and would know better than me. I've heard that Peter himself will sometimes answer the phone...

Maybe bomber jacket and denim.
DeeKayLee (1 year ago)
I prefer the harrington in my opinion. That's probably because I already own a bomber and already want a new style.
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
+Zajme I'd love to add a bomber to my collection one day.

I think you are missing the duffle coat, the trench and the pea coat as well as the bomber jacket and Harrington jacket. I also respectfully disagree with you about the silhouette of a pea coat on a 5'6 guy. I'm also 5'6 and I've been trying on pea coat and loving them. I just can't afford one that I want yet.
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
Agreed that grey or navy is way more versatile than black.
Cleander Yu (1 year ago)
+krollic Pea coats should end at around upper thigh, lower buttock which isn't as long as a duffle or trench coat which should end mid thigh to above the knee, though older styled trench coats went down even lower. I find that anything above the knee is quite alright as long as it isn't too baggy on the body. I'd suggest colours other than black however since that colour is too strong, but a navy blue works quite well. With that being said I do like a black trench coat so I'm a bit of a hypocrite here.
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
Yeah that Bond pea coat looks pretty sweet...
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
I try to avoid coats that go past mid-thigh. I know it CAN be done (just loo at James Dean), but it's tough to pull off, compared to a shorter coat. I like the look of duffel coats, but the details always seem so oversized on my smaller frame.
Syed Tauheed (1 year ago)
Couldn't really guess the pieces you said were missing. Seems like a pretty complete collection. A fleece hoody maybe?
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
Actually I could use a fleece zip up or something like that for casual outdoor stuff (like hiking).
Tao Tangam (1 year ago)
man your height??
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
Thanks for the tip! I've heard great things about Arcteryx but haven't tried them out yet. Would love a puffer jacket that doesn't make me look like a marshmallow.
Marc North (1 year ago)
Good video! For Outerwear/Activewear you may want to look at Arcteryx... Nice selection, very fitted, I'm 5.5 ft and have 2 of their coats. They make a puffer that does not look rediculously big! Also, you may want to consider made to measure for a peacoat. ☺
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
Nah, I just say that because people always ask if I'm 5'5" or 5'6" (I've said both in the past), so I'm always explaining that I'm really 5'5" and a half, but about 5'6" with shoes on. So it's just easier to say 5'6" in shoes.
Tao Tangam (1 year ago)
ok carry on. wish you all the success with this channel. :D
