Good outerwear can make or break an outfit. Sometimes a jacket can tie your look together so well that you end up wanting to keep it on inside.

It’s still winter, though, so you’ll need a coat that not only looks cool but also helps you brave the elements. Puffer jackets—which can come in cropped or nearly floor-length iterations and a multitude of prints, patterns, and colors—have been having a moment over the past four years. This week’s group of guys have set the bar high with their puffer game drip. Check them out below.

And remember, if you think your fit for the week is fiyah, tag @VQVaughns on IG every Wednesday and include the hashtag #EBONYfashion to be considered for inclusion in the next edition of EBONY’s #theBlockIsHot.
