Winter is coming and it is very important to be fully prepared for it. Good boots, thermal gloves, nice scarf, winter cap and a winter coat are the things you need every day during colder months.
Today I want to present you the 6 best winter coats I wear the most. All of them are warm, stylish and comfortable so you can choose the perfect option for you too. You should invest in a high-quality one, which will keep you warm and serve for a long time.
Heavy parka coat
This type of a coat is good even for the iciest of temperatures. Mountaineers, Antarctic explorers and people from the coldest places prefer this one over any other options. Usually parkas have a zip and a flap, which can protect you from a storm so that the wind wouldn’t get inside through the zipper. Also such coats have a big collar and a hood, so you can cover your head and shield your face from the strong wind. The best choice for people who are sensitive to cold. The only disadvantage: it can’t pass as a dress coat, unfortunately.
I prefer Woolrich parkas. They are very warm, durable, made from high-quality materials and look very elegant.
This coat looks very elegant and extra length keeps your clothes sheltered from water and dirt. This timeless outerwear will look good with trainers, a roll neck and jeans as well. A classic overcoat finishes below the knee, can be both single- or double-breasted. Better choose notch lapels and avoid the pockets.
It is another type of a coat which should be always made specially for you. I get mine only in Pietrocola Bespoke. You can adjust any detail: fabric, length, shoulder width, sleeves, fit over the body. Let yourself look like a king.
This coat gives you an opportunity to be warm and look smart at the same time. Initially it was designed for the Navy officers, but nowadays this coat is one of the most popular. A classic coat is quite short, double-breasted with large buttons and has broad lapels. It looks really good in navy blue and should be made from heavyweight wool. A peacoat is versatile and easy to match with any outfit. If you need a coat which is good for any occasion, choose this one.
The best peacoat is a bespoke peacoat. My specialists in Pietrocola Bespoke will gladly make one to your measurements and specifications. I can vouch this coat will fit you perfectly.
This coat is 100% waterproof and is perfect for the rainy weather. This item is essential for any men, especially for those who live in the UK. It has relaxed yet stylish appearance and you can wear it with any garments on any day of the week. Always choose a coat made from the breathable fabrics so the air passes through easily and your bodily vapor can be released, otherwise you might boil inside it.
The best raincoats you can find in Brooks Brothers. They are all waterproof and breathable, these things are the most important in a raincoat.
A timeless, waterproof, good-looking coat. Decades ago it was common in the countryside among the farmers, but now this coat is in demand by city dwellers too. The perfect waxed jacket finishes right below the hips, has a collar that can be flipped up to protect you from the wind, hip pockets to keep your hands warm and stud fasteners for an optional hood. This casual coat will always look great in green and brown. Don’t forget to re-wax it from time to time so a coat will keep its water repellency.
A waxed jacket I would buy in Barbour. There are not many brands which has a wide selection of such outerwear. Barbour is one of the very few companies who have the commitment to durability and quality.
Initially it was used by the Army officers, but now it became a classic. Good-looking, waterproof and warm. This type is quite expensive so you should invest into a really good one. It will serve you for many decades. A trench coat can be any length, tall guys should pick something that finishes at the knee or below, when shorter men should opt for a coat which ends above the knee. It can be single- or double-breasted, but always make sure it has a belted waist and adjustable sleeves. The best color options are khaki and beige, although military-green and gray will also look stunning.
My choice for a trench coat is Brooks Brothers or Ralph Lauren. Brooks Brothers coats have classic look, they are durable yet comfortable. Ralph Lauren coats are timeless, will look as great in 10 years as it does on the day you buy it and will never go out of fashion.
