The 3 Coats Every Man Needs — And How To Wear Them

The 3 coats Every Man Needs

Choosing one coat for the fall/winter season may sound ideal at first.
One coat, no confusion right? Wrong. While there isn’t ONE magical coat for every occasion we’ve narrowed it down to the essential three. The Overcoat, The Technical, and The Parka. Invest in these and you’ll be covered from 0 to minus 30.

Remember: In winter your coat is the first and sometimes only thing people see, choose wisely!

1. The Overcoat
good for 15 degrees to 0 degrees

Start with a great first impression whenever you meet someone. (you look silly when it’s cold out and your shivering because you don’t have a coat.)

Tips On Buying:

Look for a wool or wool cashmere blend. The standards are black and navy, but inject some personality and style and go for a camel coat or a patterned over coat.

Make sure it covers your suit jacket but don’t go longer than your knees for a modern look.

Important for work and essential for formal occasions.
