The best men’s fleece tops keep you warm while still retaining a comfortable, casual, almost minimalist look. In short, you want to stay warm without looking like you’re trying too hard to stay warm. And that’s exactly what these, fifteen of the best men’s fleece tops we could find, can do for you. Warm, easy, with a casual elegance… this is how you stay warm without looking like a five-year-old dressed up by mama in his snowsuit.
This is the quintessential pullover fleece. With a half zip so you can still keep it casual, or zip it all the way up for extra warmth. It’s simple, straightforward, with a classic, versatile look that works as both a jacket and an everyday casual top. And, of course, 250g of fleece will keep you warm.
This fleece is a warmer jacket at 365g (a general rule: the higher the number, the warmer the jacket), while still retaining a classic, stylish look. It also adds two zippered front pockets for added versatility. An especially good fleece jacket if you don’t get down with pullovers.
It’s not all about jackets, as this fleece hoodie gives you the versatility and classic look of the hoodie along with that sweet, sweet fleece warmth. Roomy, with a 50% cotton/50% polyester blend, you can wear this everywhere in any situation and still stay comfortable. There’s nothing flashy here, just a straightforward fleece hoodie that you’ll soon find wearing all the time.
Another straightforward pullover, and you’re gonna have a hard time finding a better fleece for the price. I have this same fleece and I wear it all the time from October to April.
Now this is a classic look. This is a shirt that you can wear everywhere and anywhere, including outdoors. That’s because it features two-sided brushed fleece fabric and is softened before you buy it with a special pre-washing process. Soft, warm, versatile… this is how a look becomes a classic.
A cotton/polyester blend, this sweatshirt is another great all-around top. Casual and simple enough to be worn as an everyday shirt, it’s also warm enough to be worn as a fleece jacket top. This is another shirt that I personally have and I can vouch for both its comfort and its versatility.
This is just your simple, straightforward fleece vest. It’s a clean, classic look that you can pair with a thinner shirt in a little warmer weather or wear over perhaps another fleece top for added warmth. This particular vest is lightweight, making it even more versatile for you.
A tactical fleece? Why not? It’s got five separate zippered pockets and the very first review is from a satisfied customer who says he was a Marine for seventeen years. If it’s good enough for a Marine, it’s good enough for you, bro.
Another classic plaid look, this particular shirt does an especially good job doubling as a jacket. That’s because it’s lined throughout with Sherpa-like fleece. It’s super-plush and so warm and so comfortable you’ll have a hard time not falling asleep in it.
This is such a sharp looking vest you’ll almost forget that it was designed to be extra warm with 250g of fleece. It also features two side-pockets, which are both handy and unobtrusive. You’re not gonna find a better vest with perhaps the exception of Mr. Burns’ vest made from real gorilla chest. You now have that song stuck in your head. You’re welcome?
Just look at how warm and comfortable this shirt looks! That’s because it’s sort of a hybrid plaid/hoodie, giving you the best of both worlds along with a Sherpa lining, which means that yes, friend, this shirt is ridiculously warm and comfortable, even in extreme cold.
If plaid isn’t your thing, this is a great alternative, a super-warm, comfortable shirt with that Sherpa fleece lining inside. And the outside shell? That’s 100% cotton, which means that it’s breathable so you don’t end up smelling like a giant ball of sweat. Always a plus.
Featuring that plush and oh so comfortable Sherpa fleece, this hoodie also gives you two huge pockets up front, making it one of the most versatile tops on this list. You can wear this half the year in tons of different situations. It’s a classic hoodie and a classic fleece jacket. The only time you need to take it off all winter is to wash it.
We’ve already talked about the Columbia Steen Mountain Fleece Vest, but I wanted to do something nice for you bigger bros, and give you the option of picking up the Big and Tall version. It’s basically the same thing, just, uh, bigger. No, for real, anyone with a longer torso can tell you how hard it can be to find tops that truly fit. Well, this fleece vest is for you dudes.
Of course, sometimes you’re gonna need something that’s a little more elegant while still keeping nice and warm. This is the fleece for you. It’s got a classic sweater look that you can rock in situations where maybe your plaid or plain fleece might be a touch too plain. Plus, you can still stay warm thanks to the fleece lining and a comfortable Sherpa fleece lined collar. Staying warm doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style, and vice versa.
