Outerwear: A Car or Train May Get You to Work, your Coat Makes It Happen in Style

Getting ready for winter in the colder months, means you have to expand your work look to include one more piece…your coat. It’s just as important to have a timeless, and appropriate, outerwear piece as it is to make sure your outfit is suitable for the office. And, of course, function plays an important part in this – you may need something very warm to brave a walk to the train or office, or you may need something that works for a long car ride. If you wear suits most days, your overcoat should look just as dapper. There are other great options for work, if you have a more casual look, that are still conservatively appropriate. So let’s make sure you’re covered.
Let us know what you think in the comments below. Check back tomorrow for "Outerwear: Even the Valet will Do a Double Take" and Thursday for the “Outerwear: Make that Coffee Run in Style “. Whatever the occasion, we’ve got you covered.

This luxury brown/wine wool tweed topcoat from Canali will turn heads and take you everywhere. It looks amazing with your brown and blue suits or trousers when you are headed to the office or to an evening event. We like it just as much with sweaters and wool pants for a dressy casual affair. Made in Italy, this coat hits above the knee, a nice Italian top coat length. The fabric and construction are impeccable. This is a real showstopper, and an investment worth every penny. Its timeless fashion will work with your wardrobe for years to come.

As we’ve mentioned in suits, double-breasted pieces are making a comeback. The classic charcoal glen plaid English wool is the perfect fabric for this style – creating just the right overall English attitude that will take you from work to an evening event with ease. Brooks Brothers designed this coat in a 38-inch length to hit a little above the knee, keeping in modern and practical.

Hugo Boss’ classic black single breasted wool and cashmere top coat is the right sartorial choice to wear over your suit or sport coat, when you want to make a great first impression. And when don’t we want to do that? It’s perfect for that out-of-office important client meeting or evening out. The fit is modern, a little closer to the body, but good for most gents.

For those wet but not cold fall days, the goal is simple. Stay dry and look good. This ¾ length trench coat from Han Kjobenhaven, a Danish company that designs modern clothing at surprisingly affordable prices, is the perfect choice. The fit is contemporary (not tight, but size up if you want a roomier fit). The length is modern, coming a few inches above the knee, making it long enough to cover your suit or sport coat, and still a good length to wear with jeans and casual outfits. And the green khaki color is just right for the season. You’ve got all your bases covered.

From BOSS Hugo Boss, this snap front wool and cashmere blend coat has a hidden hood that keeps you dry when you are caught in the rain or snow and a zip chest pocket to conveniently stash your phone or sunglasses. The fabric is heavy and luxurious The navy color we’re showing goes with blue, grey, olive and dark brown pants and suits. The heavy and luxurious fabric compliments the color perfectly, though the black (click through the “shop it” button to see that one) is equally dapper. The coat is just long enough to cover your suit or sport coat, and looks just as good when you’re having a more casual look for the office.

Hands down, Italian manufacturer, Loro Piana, makes the best water and wind resistant all wool fabric. It keeps you dry and comfortable in the worst weather. Brooks Brothers uses this fabulous fabric in their 3-in-1 topcoat. The button front coat includes faux suede details on the under collar and ticket pocket, which means you don’t need to worry about them getting wet. The full zip-out vest is a great added design element. It zips in for added warmth and can also be worn as a separate piece for a more casual look on a weekend. The 38-inch length goes perfectly over suits and sport coats and the navy color works with your jeans and cotton twill pants, too. This is an investment for every aspect of your wardrobe.

Another take on a 3-in-1 (Neiman Marcus calls it a 2-in-1, but you can wear this coat on its own, with the vest, or without the vest…that’s 3 uses!). This one is a more casual double-breasted cotton hip length version. Made in Italy, from Peter Millar, the outer fabric is a Firenza tech fabric that is both wind and water-resistant. The interior zip out vest is a grey quilted jersey that looks great on its own for a crisp fall day. The dark navy color of the jacket is ideal for all your fall wool and cotton dress pants, as well as jeans. Again, we find ourselves drawn to the stylish double-breasted button detail that you can see has been designed to look just as good unbuttoned – not always an easy feat.

This dressed up interpretation of a duffle coat from Cole Haan serves many purposes. (Gents, in case you were wondering, a duffle coat is a hooded coat, usually made of sturdy wool, classically with toggle closures, and is named after the town of Duffel in Belgium.) This one is long enough to wear with a sport coat, which is not always the case for a style like this. It is certainly interesting enough to pair with khaki’s or jeans on casual days. The hood is both practical and detachable on days when it is not needed.
