The Manual’s Top 5 Winter Coats

Can you feel that? That’s fall gently nudging you to invest in a new coat for the cold season. Fear not, we have five awesome options to ensure you hunker down in style.

1. Mason Mac by A.P.C.

This is timeless option perfect for the modern minimalist. Crafted from Italian water-repellent tricotine and lined with faux sheepskin, this smart mac is going to be your best friend during those cold and rainy winter days. We love the large patch pockets – perfect for keeping your phone safe and dry.

2. David Parka by Stone Island

OK, prepare to be impressed by the technology behind the construction of this super parka. Firstly, the David has been treated with an anti-drop agent. Then, during the dyeing process, the fabric is put through a heat-induced compression to create a truly tactile finish. Together with the unique double hood, lined first with woolen felt and the second with detachable sheepskin, and nylon lining filled with the finest down, this may be the warmest, most stylish sleeping bag we’ve ever experienced. Just imagine those smug snowy days…

3. Spiewak Melton Pea Coat

This military classic will see you through, way beyond the impending winter season. This pea coat is particularly awesome because it’s inspired by the pea coats that Spiewak has actually supplied for the US military, since 1917. Made from a tough melton wool blend shell, this smart piece of outerwear will keep the chill out until spring.

4. Barn Jacket by Gant

Shearling jackets are BIG news this season. If you’re a little unsure about full-on sheepskin, tap into the trend with this understated tribute by Gant. Crafted from buttery soft moleskin, this jacket features a detachable faux-shearling collar, a modern and lightweight alternative to the real thing. Featuring 12 pockets in total, the Barn Jacket fuses style and function in equal measures.

5. Bowerbridge by Penfield

We love the idea of wearing this vibrant orange hue amidst the inevitable winter gray. Undoubtedly, puffa jackets are having a moment and this offering from Penfield is our fave. Based on the typical down jackets of the 1970s, the super lightweight Nylon shell belies the incredible warmth of the quilt-through down inside. A great option for the weekend and the workday, just add chinos and brogues.
