Listen up guys, because men’s bomber jackets have arrived. Utilitarian to its core and with “cool” bursting from its seams, the bomber jacket will undoubtedly be among the anchoring pieces in your closet this spring.
This week at Crossroads, we’re stocking our men’s sections with functional outerwear perfect for layering up in unpredictable weather. Check out some of these new arrivals below plus some of our favorite ways to wear them for style inspiration.

This year will be my first winter in SoCal and I must say I’m looking forward to more brisk mornings and warm sunny afternoons. Being from the Midwest, I’d normally be bundled up this time of the year—all function over fashion! To take advantage of the best of both worlds, I’m styling two fashionable yet completely functional looks for winter.
I had the honor of styling the very talented artist Emmitt James for a photo shoot accompanying his new project The Feel Good Tape. Using clothing items purchased from Crossroads, both looks were put together for less than $60.
Distressed denim became the trendy must-have item for your closet this year. If you live in a warm state, don’t put them away just yet! Easily paired with a simple shirt and sneakers for a classic look, all I needed to add was a statement piece to get that winter street style feel.
Jump into winter with statement items that stand strong on their own and that can be paired with almost any item in your wardrobe. This Zara tweed jacket will keep you warm and turn heads. It’s light enough for a nice evening out and big enough to fit a sweater underneath for an added layer.
People underestimate how cold it gets during California nights, especially when it’s not summer! This next look is cozy yet stylish and perfect for nice evening out on the town.
Mixing patterns can be daunting, but it just takes a little bit of balance. These bold prints were paired with a simple white blazer and white Florsheim dress shoes, all found at Crossroads!
It has been said that suits make people feel powerful and confident. Think about when someone walks into a room wearing a suit—everyone stops to take a look. It’s hard to resist. I’m here to give a few style pointers to make sure you light up every room you’re in when you’re wearing a suit.
When it comes to a gentleman’s suit, shoes are one of the first things people will look at. It’s absolutely essential to have a good rotation of dress shoes. Choose timeless styles like double monk straps, wingtips, and oxfords. Pick colors that can go with most attire, like light browns and darker tones.
Lapel pins are a simple, underrated accessory that can easily make you stand out from the crowd. They’re a great way to complement an outfit and add some spark to your suit jacket or coat.
Ties are a great way to convey your personality. When choosing a tie, the width of the tie should match the size of the lapel on the suit jacket or blazer. Slim-fit suits usually have smaller lapels that skinny ties pair well with.
Last but not least, confidence is key! It’s the most inexpensive part of your outfit, yet also the most difficult to attain since it cannot be bought. However you choose to wear your suit, believe in your style and wear the clothes instead of letting the clothes wear you.
The FLATform is the platform sandal of the moment—and we think it’s the perfect summer shoe for two simple reasons:
1. They give you height with no pain.
2. They’re sporty and chic at the same time.
If you’re not quite ready to trade in your Birkenstocks for their younger sister (the flatform), then come shop one of our other shoe styles heading to Crossroads stores everywhere this week!
