It's hard to stay looking good underneath the many layers that are needed to keep us warm during the winter months. A friend once asked me "Gabe, how do you suggest one can stay looking stylish and good while wearing possibly every article of clothing I own in order not to freeze outside?" My answer, pick a great durable utility jacket that functions not only as a jacket to keep you warm but also a stylish piece that will look great no matter what the temperature reads outside.
My following three picks are a few of my favorite styles of winter jackets out right now. They're not your typical puffy down jacket that your mother used to send you out the door for school, they're stylish with unique details which set them apart from all the other jackets out there. With the use of many buttons and buckles these three jackets hit the mark on the military trend that has been big over the last few seasons. The trend is so big that Authentic Apparel Group created a US Army Apparel collection in collaboration with the US Army, their Airborne Army Coat pictured below is one of my favorites to grab out the door. Another brand I love right now is Woolrich John Rich & Bros. who created the Arctic Parka picked out here in this post. For a bit more of a polished and work friendly look, there is this Baracuta Blue Label Trench Coat from their Fall/Winter 2014 collection that made its debut at Milano Moda Uomo last week. Beat the cold and look great wearing any of these three picks.
