Top Picks in Men's Coats and Jackets

By

If you live in an area of the country where cold weather gear is a must, I know it can be tough to find coats and jackets that look somewhat stylish while doing there job of keeping you warm. Here I have picked out some of my favorite casual coats, jackets and vests. I would wear any one of them myself.

1. Spiewak Wool Peacoat

I have seen the Spiewak peacoat in a variety of high end shops as well as average shops. This is a jacket that Spiewak produces every year and which has also become signature item for them. It is also a great example of how a well designed, simple piece of clothing doesn't have to cost a fortune to be considered high end.

A stylish down vest like this one is a seasonal must of you live in a cold climate. This Lacoste vest comes in navy and black and is machine washable. I have one like this and I wear it all the time. I love the convenience of the exterior pockets--great for cell phones, wallets and keys.

I love the look of this jacket. It's well priced, has style and functionality. What more could you ask for?

4. Wool Topcoat

This is the jacket to get if you really want to look put together but not too fussy. You might think a top coat is dressy, but it's a great piece to wear with jeans. One made of wool or a wool and nylon blend is a great choice.

5. Patagonia Puff Jacket

A nylon stitched down jacket like those made by Patagonia often look like far more expensive Prada jackets. You can't beat the price for a high end designer look. I have a friend who owns a Patagonia quilted down jacket and he swears by it on chilly days. It provides just the right amount of warmth.

Sometimes all you want is a stylish motorcycle style jacket to throw on over a sweater or other layers. Layering keeps you warm and allows you to peel off when necessary.
