Alexander McQueen’s Shearling Wool Blend Peacoat combines several trends into one truly unique piece of outwear. The peacoat is a classic style, modernized by the double-breasted cut. It works with everything from jeans to a suit. While most shearling is white, the camel color of the shearling collar is an interesting detail that makes this coat unlike anything else out there.

2. Maison Kitsune Faux-Shearling Trimmed Corduroy Jacket

Shearling is absolutely beautiful and warm, but it can also be very expensive. That is why faux shearling is a great alternative, giving you the same look for a lower cost. Maison Kitsune’s Faux-Shearling Trimmed Corduroy Jacket might be made of a faux material, but its style is 100% real. This casual, sporty jacket is the perfect compliment to any pair of jeans.

3. Burberry Brit The Britain Burwood Duffle Coat

Burberry has been making iconic outerwear for over 100 years. Burberry Brit’s Britain Burwood Duffle Coat is a rich navy toggle coat featuring a removable hood. The fabric is cut short, and the design is slightly sporty. Lined with signature oversized Burberry check fabric, this jacket makes you both instantly warmer and adds a hint of refinement to any casual ensemble.

4. Canada Goose Borden Bomber Coat

No one knows how to keep warm better than the Canadians do. After all, it is very frosty up north. Canada Goose’s Borden Bomber is incredibly practical and wearable. Designed to keep you warm and dry, it is filled with 625 Fill Power White Duck Down, which retains heat as well as keeps the cold out. The removable ring of signature coyote fur frames the adjustable hood. Thoughtfully designed, the coat also features hand warmer fleece pockets, which come in handy (no pun intended), should you be walking around without gloves.

5. Ben Sherman House Gingham Duffle Coat in Desert Sand

British designer Ben Sherman’s House Gingham Duffle Coat in Desert Sand is a similar style to the Burberry Brit coat, but in a more affordable price range. The generously cut but sleek coat was made for layering. Lined with a stylish gingham fabric, it features a hood to keep you warm and two large front pockets for storage. With toggles on the front as well as a hidden zipper, this camel colored coat can be worn with anything from casual to formal. If camel isn’t your color, a navy blue version is available.

6. Moncler Eloy Tartan Jacket

Moncler is a rival to Canada Goose, but does not take itself quite as seriously. For example, its Eloy Tartan Jacket is a fun deviation from the typical standard puffy. The classic plaid wool design features sporty details as well as a detachable hood. From the slopes to the street, it’s easy to look stylish in this jacket.

7. Frank & Oak Double-Breasted Topcoat in Heather Gray

Frank & Oak’s Double-Breasted Topcoat in Heather Gray creates the perfect line over a suit. It was designed as a layering piece, so you will be comfortable whether you are wearing a thick blazer or a light sweater under it. Fully lined, this wool blend coat will help you stay both warm and looking good. While not cheap, this coat is relatively affordable and the best “bang for the buck” on this list.
