How to Wear a Suede Jacket for Men
When the air turns dry and the seasons start to change, suede jackets become the talk of the town. For a casual look that remains timeless and classic, this overcoat will last for years and decades to come. But what is a suede jacket? And how is it different from other types of jackets?
Suede is a type of leather with a napped finish, commonly used for jackets, shoes, wallets, etc. The term is derived from the French phrase gants de Suède, which means “gloves from Sweden.”
Getting a suede jacket is a wise investment, but the options are overwhelming. It feels good to touch a suede fabric as it gives you a soft and fibrous effect. But, it is a little sensitive and must be handled with extra care. It’s also hydrophilic so there’s a high chance for it to get wet when exposed to moisture and rain.
Suede jackets, especially the genuine ones are more expensive than most jackets, so you might want to treat them the right way:
- Think twice on how you’re gonna wash and store them.
- Also, give it a generous dose of protector spray.
- And always consider the weather condition before going out.
- If you are on a budget, get the faux suede jackets in the meantime, but they should be handled with care all the same.
Basically, you can wear a suede jacket as a substitute for any available jacket in your wardrobe. Let’s say that you grew tired of wearing the same one in a loop, so now it’s time to make some changes. Nonetheless, suede jackets look just fine when paired with almost everything. It’s good to mix and match. It’s only up to you how you will style and accessorize your outfit. Jackets are the best accessory for guys which is why we’ve already covered in great detail the trending men’s Denim Jackets and Bomber Jackets. Now here are some basic tips that you should keep in mind for when you decide to wear a suede jacket.
- When wearing suede simple is stylish.
- Keep the suede jacket in a cool and dry place in the summers.
- Suede absorbs stains. Buy a suede brush or eraser beforehand for cleaning them. Paper towels can be used to remove stains of juice or tea and baking soda can be used for removing tougher stains like grease and oil.
- Stay away from funky combos.

Suede jackets are not something that you should wear in the rain. Suede is a material that absorbs stains and when it gets wet it needs to be air-dried first and then polished. In case you are wearing suede and it suddenly starts drizzling, seek shelter! Don’t start dancing in the rain when you are donning a suede jacket. If it gets wet, dry it naturally at home. This may take more than 24 hours. Then use a suede eraser or brush to remove the marks. Don’t apply pressure if not absolutely necessary. Gently clear off the marks. Then at the end use the eraser again to restore the material’s shine. You can also find great inspiration from these Men’s Workout Outfits.

Many people believe that since suede is a material that’s a relative of leather, it shouldn’t be worn in summer. However, fortunately, there’s no truth backing this idea. Suede can actually be worn in summers as well when it isn’t blazing hot outside. The color and material fade and get damaged by the sun’s scorching rays so be sure to avoid wearing suede on a bright sunny day.
