Another classy offering from our friends at Taylor Stitch, the Coit Jacket ($238) will keep you looking cool but feeling warm this winter. This is a true classic in every sense of the word and the woolen blend offers a ton of warmth alongside some additional suppleness and strength, which gives the Coit Jacket from Taylor Stitch just the right amount of heft without sacrificing comfort or wearability.

Bradley Mountain Cabin Field Jacket – $365

With a decidedly and pleasingly vintage feel, this versatile looking Bradley Mountain Cabin Field Jacket ($365) will go with more or less any outfit choices this winter be they formal or casual. It is lined with a warming wool and has a waxed outer shell with flannel lining in the arms that gives it an adventure readiness that is second to none.

Finisterre Nimbus Jacket – $189

If you’ve got particularly brutal weather in your neck of the woods, the Finisterre Nimbus Jacket ($199) is the perfect choice for you. Boasting a highly water-resistant and windproof exterior which coated with DWR finish for extra protection, this jacket will keep you warm and dry whatever the weather. It has a Finisterre-engineered insulation which is made from recycled polyester fill that retains 75% of its warmth when wet—an upgrade from down fill, which only retains 15% of its warmth when wet. It will keep any adventure-seeker toasty during the cold weather months and the Nimbus is water-resistant, windproof, and wonderfully packable to take along for all your adventures. ($199)
