A Man's Guide to a Winter Coat

An all purpose coat is essential in a man's wardrobe -- one that is not too formal, that travels from workday (with a suit) to weekend (with jeans and a sweater), tailored but not tight. The perfect fit is a three-button wool coat with an U.S. price tag and Italian craftsmanship. JOSEPH ABBOUD has what you need to carry you to Spring.

In addition to the everyday coat, versatile options include new standards:

  • The Duffle Coat started in the British Navy (always owned great style). This coat is ideal against cold weather on weekends and carries the work week suit as well. Look for unexpected elements like leather insets, rope hooks and wood or metal closures. Classic navy (right) works along with a rich earthy shade like olive. Wool and Nylon Duffle by J.PRESS/$725.
  • The Parka Coat is no longer reserved for trips to the slopes. Men are wearing these coats for work and play. The key to pulling it off with a suit is to ensure it's long enough to cover the suit jacket and choose a darker shade for a dressier appearance. Cotton and Nylon Parka by WOOLRICH JOHN RICH & BROS/$675.
