Telluride Double-Layer Shearling Fur Jacket
Peter Millar
Sold by: Neiman Marcus

Fit Guide
Shearling coats are a cold weather classic and this season, they’ve been a favorite amongst designers, so it’s a great time to invest in one. Peter Millar’s buffed sheepskin leather option is one of our favorites for its high quality, universally flattering fit, and versatility. If we’re going to suggest an investment piece like this, we want to ensure you will get a lot of use out of it. Besides the gorgeous coco brown suede exterior that has a quilted lining, this coat has a detachable shearling wind flap to keep you warm on the days you need it – or just want to add that touch of rugged style, since it looks like a vest layer within the coat. The additional details, like the shearling lined collar and multiple pockets (both flap pockets and side-entry hand warmer pockets), ensure you’ll be looking dapper and staying warm all Winter long…for years to come. It can be worn with dress wool pants to jeans, and everything in between to suit every occasion.

Gents, Ready for Winter? We’ve Got Your New Coat Picked Out

What does your coat say about you? Let’s make sure it’s the right thing. As the weather continues to cool down, it’s time to get serious about our outerwear. There are tons to choose from this season, with coats not just being a necessity, but also a strong fashion trend as the key item to your outfit. With that style emphasis, you want to make sure you have a great one. Utility puffers are still a staple for those casual days, with their sporty good looks and amazing function. Overcoats cut from high-quality wools and tweeds are absolutely key, and have a fresh look with softer shoulders for a more relaxed vibe that makes them even more versatile. For a truly luxe look, a shearling piece will create a sartorial look that is just a cut above.
There are a lot of options – we’re here to edit all them down to some of the best for the Mark Shale gent. We take the trends into account, but as we’ve been doing since the days we had retail stores, we think it’s important to interpret them in a way that makes you feel updated and appropriate, but not overly trendy. This is especially important when choosing a coat. Invest in the best you can. This is something you’ll wear frequently, and dare we say, function is even more important than fashion in this case. When you’re trying to get to work in inclement weather, getting your errands done, or stepping out for the evening, you need to stay warm. Looking good is the added bonus that we are here to help you achieve this week. And we want you to feel like you’re making a solid investment. Something you can wear for more than one season – both, because the quality is superb and because the style will still look good next year. We’ve done some digging, so let’s get started.
Take a look at a few of our favorites here, and then head over to “15 Standout Coats of the Season for the Gents”, to shop the rest of our best Finds for the season to keep you warm and chic looking. If you like something, just click on the “Shop It” button to buy it from our suggested retailer. And let us know what you think through the comments section below and on social media.

When you’ve made the effort to ensure your suit looks great, for that important meeting or dressier event, don’t blow when it comes to your outwear.

Sanyo - Water Repellent Diamond Quilted Jacket

The coating even helps protect you from the wind. This jacket will take you from work to dinner, regardless of how fickle the Fall weather will be. The deep midnight blue quilt is timeless, and the modern fit isn’t trim, so you can easily layer it over sweaters.

When the time comes to start seriously tackling the cold weather, this Canada Goose hooded jacket has down fill that will keep you warm and toasty down to 5 degrees. As the brand name implies, it’s made in Canada, so you know they are serious about the cold weather.

It’s got all the necessary pockets so you can keep your hands warmly tucked away without needing to hold on to your phone or keys. This black color is our top pick for its endless versatility and sleek look, but there are also some great colors if you are looking for a little more pop in your casual jacket.
