The Coats You Need For Winter
Here are some suggestions to carry you through early fall to deep mid-winter, and from walking the dog to walking into the office.
The weather is certainly one determining factor in putting together your selection of outerwear. You’ll need something for now and into early spring, and something heavier for winter’s really cold months.
But there’s also something else to consider, namely the different kinds of occasions – from casual to dressy – when you need to wear an appropriate coat.
Today, a man puts serious thought and variety into his coat selection. Regardless of the season and the weather, there will be times when you want to look relaxed and other situations that call for something smarter.
Here are a few suggestions for you. Take note how they will carry you through to deep mid-winter to early spring, and from situations as varied as walking the dog to walking into the office.
The Hybrid Jacket
From Brunello Cucinelli this is the ultimate luxury lightweight down blazer, perfect for travel and equally appropriate over a jacket or sportswear. With a nylon exterior and down filling, it weighs next to nothing but provides ample warmth on cool days.
Add a touch of colour to your coat wardrobe with this dynamic, lightly quilted bomber from Italy’s Colmar. The hit from the yellow lining will brighten-up the dullest days of the season.
Tailored clothing meets sportswear with this slim-cut, city-length coat crafted in a navy blue mélange wool blend by BOSS. Added bonus: the lightly quilted gilet is removable.
The Practical Parka
A parka that looks like a field jacket? Why not? From Canada Goose, this limestone is a new colour this season, offset by chocolate brown leather trim around the zip and under the collar, so it looks sharp even when you remove the fur-trimmed hood.
Made in Vancouver, this is a very warm coat indeed, thanks to a down-filled interior and body-mapping technology that offers extra insulation where you need it most. Heat-sealed seams – even around the zipper – make this sleek Arc'teryx Veilance design waterproof, windproof and extremely durable.
Heavy Duty Down
Our outerwear experts worked with Montreal-based outerwear specialist Mackage to create this exclusive Bordeaux colour of this warm quilted nylon bomber. Fur-lined and trimmed, the hood connects to the gilet and all can be removed, leaving a down-filled stand collar to maintain warmth.
