Hell no!
White color jackets get dirty as hell during the winter time.
Try cleaning snow off your car while wearing a white colored jacket and see how long you can keep it clean.

@Duchamp: yeah, I agree w you. My clothes must be fitted tp the T lol. Where do you find those tweed suits like that? They look classy.


I have several spring jackets, one of which is light blue and another is white. I was born and raised in the US as were my parents, but I understand where you are coming from. Americans are hung up about a man wearing anything that is not drab as that may even remotely signify that he is gay. Well, think what you may; I like to chase women.

NOT a blazer.

BTW - surgeons don't wear white blazers either.....
Among men, a blazer is also called a jacket sometimes.

Perhaps, but a puffer jacket (which the OP specifically asks about) is NEVER a blazer. It is a winter coat.

I usually avoid wearing light colors because even minor stains and discolorations can reveal themselves quite a bit. Light color clothes which are worn outside need to be cared for extremely well.

I have a light grey wool shell jacket, lined with Muslin, that I really like and wear a lot. I also have a caped, sky blue, wool greatcoat lined with Muslin as well, that I wear in really cold wet weather. I really like this coat! It's warm, holds out water, and covers to below my knees so it keeps out wind.

It draws attention, as its not a type of coat you see every day, but everyone who has commented on it has liked it, light color and all.

I've never thought light colors were only for girls, but I volunteer at an organization that has a huge festival each year in our town for which we have new tees and sweatshirts designed and printed each year. Last year, the white sweatshirts did NOT sell very well - in any size, for men OR women. A lot of people said they just felt light colors show the dirt too much. So this year they only had dark blue and brown ones made. They sold much better. Light colored tees are no problem. People expect to wash them more often, anyway. But jackets and sweatshirts, not so much.

a man wearing a white blazer looks like Col Saunders from KFC or the people that stand outside of retail stores asking for donations for the homeless

the younger the person the more colorful the clothing , the older more mature should wear more neutral or dark colors

in some countries the color of a man's business suit is related to his rank or status in the business world, the CEO or higher ranking executives wear the dark suits

Not white or very light for the only reason that dirt would show up really fast. Otherwise, I love all bright colours, light or dark.
My favorite coat is a forest green one.

What on earth does LGBT have to do with your outerwear? Is there a secret society of LGBT-only fashions? Is it segregated into four distinct sub-fashions? What do Ts wear?
There is no such thing as a secret LGBT society, not that I know of, I just want to hear different opinions from different perspectives. Maybe the LGBT has a dress code to identify one another and I don't want to be mistaken. Not that I have something against LGBT, I just simple like women.

Thank you for your understanding. The US has different perspective when it comes to color for gender, so I just wondering why the mother say such thing to her son about what color is for specific gender only. I 2nd on that
