The Most Stylish Winter Jackets? - Page 2

post #16 of 22
i just got a charcoal herringbone overcoat from j.crew...shoddy construction (not even machined buttonholes, just machine stitched outline then a HOLE IS CUT THROUGH THE MIDDLE). however the fabric is quite nice, and has a nice shape. lined with thinsulate (whatever that means), and should be perfect for a layering item in not-so-cold conditions. i know the OP said he didn't want a full length jacket, but dufflecoats and maybe a carcoat would suit you, since they are both above the knee =] here is a carcoat from schott that i've been eyeing for the last few days: https://www.schottnyc.com/proddetails.cfm?prodID=150

Charcoal Sterlingwear peacoat. It's warm, slim fitting (if you size down one), goes well with jeans + dress trousers, and could stop a bullet. One of my best wardrobe purchases.

If you want a slim parka with excellent construction and details then try and hunt down the visvim packable townsend. Its goretex and also very lightweight. The cut is slim and modern. Its a couple of years old now but they crop up on jp yahoo from time to time

I would suggest Barbour's wax cotton coats. I think the Beaufort and the Bedale are the most popular. I was this close to buying a Bedale in navy about a month ago, but since I'm moving to a warmer climate I decided not to. It makes me very sad that I won't have the need for it because it's one of my favorite pieces of outerwear.

I stopped at a Filson dealer a couple of months ago to look at waxed cotton jackets. He didn't have anything in my size, but was looking up info on ordering one, and while he was doing so pointed to another coat that he thought I should try on. It looked like one of those Mackinaws.

Me: "No thanks. I'm not interested in a wool coat"

Shop owner: "I know. Just try it on while I look this up."

Me: "I'm not interested".

Shop owner: "Just try it on, see how you like it."

Me: "Alright, alright... Holy cow! This is a great coat!"

Shop owner: "Mmm hmm."

It really was great looking, and built like a tank. I had been kind of overexposed to pea coats, and wasn't in the mood for wool. But this thing was completely different. It looked good on the rack, but when I tried it on, it was incredible.

I may go back and check it out again. It doesn't seem like they ever go on sale, though, and it's an expensive mutha.

FWIW
