We’d like to suggest an underrated criterion for winter coats: coziness.
The way we see it, there are plenty of great looking wool overcoats (hey, here’s one), but it’s hard to overstate the joy you’ll get from a few yards of fuzziness once November rolls around.
This Mark McNairy version is a pretty good example, thanks to that faux fur lining spilling out over the collar. It’s on the casual end, but the military vibe makes it pretty near timeless—not to mention the fact that warm fuzzy feelings tend to transcend style.
