J. Kenji Lopez-Alt

I have my cousin’s jacket from when he was at war in Iraq. He never came home. It’s incredible to have something that is so personal but that I also feel relatively comfortable wearing.

Tech Jacket shares the same tone as Invincible, but the subject matter is very different. Where Invincible is about perfection, Tech Jacket is about flaws.

I bring a poofy gray down jacket with me wherever I go. It’s meant for winter, but I use it most in the summer, when everyone cranks up the air-conditioning.

Ronald Reagan would never go into the Oval Office without his jacket on – that’s how much he revered the presidency.

I think women want to feel beautiful. They want to feel seductive. I also try to think about items that can be worn in different ways so they can be worn more than once. If you’re going to buy a $2,000 jacket, you are going to want to wear it over and over.
There’s something very old-fashioned and luxurious to have a pair of pants and jacket made to your needs and measurements.

To me, a Harris Tweed jacket is the kind of thing you should be able to have in your closet years from now – possibly it was your father’s jacket or, even better, your grandfather’s jacket.
I feel like my style is very much androgynous. It’s rock, chic, like casual wear, but then on the flip side to that, being that it’s so androgynous, it’ll either be skinny jeans and a leather jacket, or if I’m doing a red carpet or event, I’ll completely flip that and be wearing a suit or a dress.
I played rugby for years, and I had a rugby jacket that I lost when I was 14. Somehow, my brother found it in storage 15 years later, and he gave it back to me for my 30th birthday. That was amazing and probably one of the best gifts I’ve ever received.

I’m not one of those girls who can think, ‘Right, I’ll put a scarf with that and a little brooch there and maybe a vintage jacket.’ I’m so impressed with girls who look terrific in a little thing they picked up at the local charity shop. I just look scruffy when I try to do vintage.
I always wear a dinner jacket. I never have this definition of what goes for the morning or the evening or what works for the weekend.

A simple leather jacket… has gotten me through cocktail parties in New York and cold nights in Afghanistan.
‘Mr. Peanut’ is not about a man who dreams of killing his wife; that’s jacket copy, to me. ‘Mr. Peanut’ is about the dynamism of marriage and the distances – some tragic, some redemptive – that marriages travel over time, and those travels ain’t always pretty.
It’s an honor to see that green jacket in the bedroom closet, but I’m not going to become somebody else because I won the Masters.

People don’t necessarily realise that there can be just as much work on a quiet jacket as an overblown gown.

Don’t ever take a dramatic lesson. They will try to put your voice in a dinner jacket, and people like their hominy and grits in everyday clothes.
I love winter clothes. For me, it is all about choosing great materials and getting the right cut for your body – and then styling it right. For example, I love an oversized manly jacket, but I’ll team it with some girly heels.
There were loads of plays which were very popular before and after the war, where everybody wore a dinner jacket in the third act and it was in a house that you wished you’d owned with people that you wish you knew. It was life seen through a very privileged way.

These days it seems that every big, new, heavily promoted children’s book is rather like the ghost of poor old Jacob Marley.

Personally, I love denim… denim pants, a shirt, denim jacket – I’m good.

Often something more simple would be better. Sometimes I put things together – a shirt, a sweater, a jacket – and it’s too complicated. I would have worn only a v-neck sweater, it would have been better. It’s not the clothes but it’s how you wear them sometimes.
Ines de La Fressange
On a normal day, I love a shift dress with flats and a little cropped jacket. That, for me, is my travel wear if it’s not too chilly – you can throw a scarf over your legs if it’s cold on the plane!
I quite like walking out in my sweet new Balor Club jacket, popping my collar and being Mr. Cool.
I love the look of books published by the firm of Rupert Hart-Davis: They strike me as handsome, elegant, and inviting. I’ll pick up almost anything with that imprint, especially if it’s in a jacket or priced low.

My mom passed down to me her old Levi’s denim jacket. When I left it on a plane, I was devastated. I’ve never been able to find anything with quite the same cool, faded look.

As a child, I would rush to the school gates as the bell went, to be collected by my mother, Marilyn, who was always immaculately dressed in a pencil skirt and matching jacket.
People ask me about ‘The Hurt Locker’ a lot, and it’s an incredible piece of filmmaking – as are ‘Band of Brothers’ and ‘Platoon’ and ‘Full Metal Jacket’ and ‘Apocalypse Now.’ But they’re not necessarily true to war in a literal sense. What they are, really, are brilliant movies about Hollywood’s idea of war.
I don’t have a collection, but I have a thing with jackets. I really like jackets. Whether it’s an ’80s motorbike jacket, or a Victorian jacket. I could wear the same jeans every day for months, but the jacket would be the thing that would change a lot.
Josephine de La Baume
I once called EastEnders’ Patsy Palmer ‘a scrubber in a Puffa jacket who cries all the time’ on ‘Strictly.’ She said I wasn’t actually a dancer. That wasn’t my finest moment.

When I was a freshman in high school, I got a letterman jacket, which you’d think would be great stock. The jacket had the big S on it, for Santa Monica. But rather than having a football or a baseball on the S, I had a little nine iron. Girls thought it was a flute.
The whole thing of clothes is insane. You can spend a dollar on a jacket in a thrift store. And you can spend a thousand dollars on a jacket in a shop. And if you saw those two jackets walking down the street, you probably wouldn’t know which was which.
Once, I had to clip a jacket back to take a picture, and after they were done I forgot to remove the clip until someone noticed.

My main focus is to always try to be myself first, and then, hey, if I wear a cool jacket, that’s a bonus.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Every dude needs a well tailored suit. I’d say well tailored suit, a leather jacket, and a pair of jeans that really fit are vital in your wardrobe.

If you’re going to walk out of the house in jeans and T-shirt, what can you do to make that interesting? Is it putting on a bright-colored pair of high-tops or a cool leather jacket?
As you know, I’m androgynous. I can wear a jacket that most guys wouldn’t put on. But you make it in guys’ sizes, and suddenly they’re wearing them. I think styles should get back to getting people to wear things that look so good that they don’t care.
I still have my Levi’s jacket that I bought on the Portobello Road when I was 14, and it’s like part of me, you know, it’s got oils in it, and it’s my comfort, security blanket or something.

Tailored jackets with jeans is a great look for all ages. Dress up with a heel and pretty shirt, or just wear a smart T-shirt under the jacket.
Here’s my rule: You always want to pay cash for your own books, because if they look at the name on the credit card and then they look at the name on the book jacket, then there’s this look of such profound sympathy for you that you had to resort to this. It really is withering.
My style is understated because everything I wear, I want it to have an effortless feel to it. I always want to be comfortable in my clothes and feel like myself, but I like to usually throw in some edge in there somewhere, even just with a leather jacket. But overall, always gotta keep it classy!
I always liked performing in front of my parents’ friends. My dad bought me a karaoke machine, and I would put on a Michael Jackson song like ‘Thriller,’ and I would come out with, like, a hat and a jacket, and, like, moonwalk in my socks, so I was always performing.
Style to me is a mix between rock star chic-quirky-sexy and expressive. I always dress for my body type, as it’s important to highlight your pluses! I like edgy clothes that have character. I usually dress by the mood I’m in – so if I’m in my ripped jeans and leather jacket, you know I’m feeling rebellious!
You can’t be glued in the ’60s. Walking around, going up the pub or popping to Tesco in a hunting jacket.
The most comical thing for me, even when I watch movies, is the guy who’s so crazy confident about himself, with the mink jacket – to me, that is so funny. I wish I could be like that. As a fighter, I wish I could do that, so I could make people laugh. But I can’t; it’s not my style.
I have a really great show jacket from Lavalliere that’s really well made, and I have a great pair of Gucci jodhpurs, which is hilarious.

It’s a dream come true for Bubba Watson from Bagdad, Florida to have the green jacket on.
I get more disgusted with men all the time – particularly traveling Americans. They start out on a trip to Europe and never bother to pack a dinner jacket. This is not only stupid – it’s bad manners.

I love getting amazing jackets, because you can wear your pajamas underneath and everyone’s like, ‘Oh, fabulous jacket,’ and I’m like, ‘You should see what’s underneath!’
Once, as an experiment, I travelled around the world with a single suit. Before I left, I went to a tailor in Savile Row and asked him to make me a suit that I could wear in any climate and which I could use as a tuxedo, a dinner jacket, a lounge suit and a blazer.
I really like crop tops. I like how you can dress them up or down, with jeans or a skirt and heels. I like to be showy and cute. I don’t want to be in just a jacket and pants and boots.
In recitals, you are naked before the audience – well, naked with your jacket and tails. The audience sees and hears the real person, not some role you are interpreting.

For women looking to dress up on a budget, a jacket is a good investment.
Going to the movies was a big event in my youth. My father would be the initiator – he’d have me put on a jacket to see a film.

Winning the green jacket is great – I can pay for all the diapers I’m going to have to get.
Never wear a seersucker suit straight off the rack. It’s going to look shapeless and droopy. If you’re going to sport seersucker, whether a jacket, trousers or a full suit, have it fitted. A nice, custom, tailored fit makes all the difference in the world.
If I’m uncomfortable on stage, everybody can see it. I’m not very good at hiding it. I like long, loose jacket dresses – anything that I can literally have room to move in – not that I’m a very big dancer, but because sometimes I’m sitting down at the keyboard, and then sometimes I’m standing. It just has to feel good.
The mistake British comedians often make is trying to beat the Americans at their own game – getting visiting American singers on their shows, talking about ‘sidewalk’ instead of ‘pavement,’ sitting on high stools in a white dinner jacket doing ballads. That way, you simply end up with a mid-Atlantic mishmash.
A gray flannel suit by Thom Browne or Tom Ford can be worn a billion ways. I’ll wear a gray flannel jacket with a white shirt, gray flannel tie, beat-up fatigues, and a dress shoe or Carpe Diem boots.
‘Circuital’ was just so much about us as a band. We captured every song live, including the main vocal. That is probably my favorite My Morning Jacket record because it’s really the essence of us being us. The solo record is just a completely different essence of just me trying to figure out stuff.
I love the idea of a dress or a coatdress rather than a suit with a jacket.
More than anything, I like a jacket. You can do anything with a great jacket, the bigger the better. You can have any silhouette underneath. It gives you an attitude. It makes a gown look cool.
If Michelle Obama had stepped out in an outrageously priced jacket by an Italian designer, heads would have rolled. People would have said it was deplorable.
My essentials are skinny jeans, loose-fitting tees, big jumpers, and the leather jacket. Everything is black or blue – I don’t own anything colorful.
Jamie Campbell Bower
I like unkempt; I don’t mind if I have holes in my jacket or whatever. I think people should look more the way they feel.
Whenever I go to work I wear a jacket and a tie, because I’m inherently quite lazy, and my books take so long to do, and my publishers don’t bug me, so it’s so easy to fool yourself into thinking you’re working harder than you really are.

With a stretch belt, anything can be a dress – a dinner napkin, a tablecloth, even a towel. Just wrap and snap, and away you go in an incredible outfit. Another plus is that the belt will pull all eyes to your lovely curves, and they even look good around a coat or a jacket.
I have a friend who only buttons the bottom button of his suit jacket, which you’re not supposed to do. ‘Supposed to do.’ But it’s his thing, and it’s his personal style, and it’s like you’ve got to honor that. People can do whatever they want.
Paul F. Tompkins

I love shoes. I am a shoe fanatic. I love my Giuseppe Zanottis – he is my favorite. I have them in every color. Other than shoes, it’s important to have a great black leather jacket.

I wear tennis shoes over and over again, and my black jacket. I always try to be comfortable. It’s very important to me to wear comfortable shoes, which are hard to find – beautiful and comfortable at the same time.
I think I would have one favourite jacket, one favourite pair of sneakers – like, from every kind of thing I do have my favourite – but they’re often the things I wear the least because I just want to keep them nice, so I don’t really tend to wear them as much.
My women students openly admit that they dress for interviews like dates, hoping to look their best: makeup, high heels, a well-fitting suit that shows off their figure. And I always tell them to make sure to wear a shirt under the suit jacket. Form fitting, yes. Cleavage, no.
I’m actually quite proud of the fact that we made a success of ourselves in a donkey jacket and DMs, without any thought to sexualising what we were doing.
If you look back to a picture of me when I was 12 years old, you will probably see me in a leather jacket trying to look like Elvis!
I still have such a thing for leather jackets. I have a closet full of them, and my husband is always saying to me, ‘Why do you need another jacket? You have plenty of jackets.’
I like to match what I wear to my book jacket – it’s a little bit cheesy, but it’s my thing.
I was brought up in a very rural area on grounds of a castle. It was a working farm, and I even remember the local shepherd wearing his Barbour jacket.
As a Fox News Channel contributor, I’ve learned most of the tips over the years: look into the camera like it’s a good friend; pull your suit jacket down and sit on it so it doesn’t bunch up; and most importantly, never, ever say anything while sitting in that studio that you wouldn’t want someone else to hear.
We ended up all living in a one-bedroom apartment that cost $80 a month and sleeping on the floor. My jacket was my first pillow. We really had nothing at all.
I didn’t wear a leather jacket, man. I didn’t grow up in the ’50s.
I’ve spent a lot on clothes. I’m not kidding when I say I could have bought several country homes with the money. I’ve also given a lot away over time. I had a lovely Yves Saint Laurent jacket that I’d only worn once or twice, but I’m one for spring cleaning rather than storing my clothes.
I’m a Hollywood writer, so I put on my sports jacket and take off my brain.
I would have liked to grow up in Liverpool and become a rocker. I would have put my boots on, jeans and a leather jacket, and long hair and played the guitar.
I was never really a Mod. I thought I was more of a beatnik with the brown corduroy jacket, blue jeans, etc. I loved the music Mods liked, and I loved the clothes, but I didn’t have any money to spend on them.
