The winter months bring with it a healthy dose of snow, ice, and blistering winds. If that sounds like a good time, it probably means you have a great coat collection. However, if you are like most of us and you think that sounds like misery, it means you have some growth needed in your coat closet. Lucky for you, we have collected some of the best winter coats for the 2023/2024 season.

Of course, there are dozens of coats and brands that you can choose from. From duffle coats and leather bombers to overcoats and peacoats, you can always find something new and different to upgrade your collection. But no matter what you choose, there are a few things that you should keep in mind when you are doing your shopping for men’s winter coats.

What’s in style in 2023?

You can always go with the good old trusty classics like the brown leather moto jacket or the cashmere overcoat. However, the winter of 2023/2024 is the perfect time for you to upgrade your coat closet with something new and different.

This season, the first thing you should look for is a new and different color. Rich olives, greens, and other colors that contrast with the usual browns and navies are the best to look for, along with eye-catching patterns that will elevate your collection immediately. Here are the best options for your consideration.

The Boardwalk Peacoat is one of the iconic cornerstone items that propelled &SONS to the powerhouse in rugged menswear that it is. Of course, most peacoats carry with them the classic blue from its naval origins. But the newest addition to &SONS’ collection is a variation on the classic in army green. It still features the wide collar perfect for shielding you from the elements and the snap tab to close the front around your neck. But the new color will help you stand out like never before.

It is meant to be the shell you wear when you face the best and the worst that life has to offer. The black coffee color is about as dark brown as you can get before you end up wearing black. It may not be designed for fashion, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t capable of it.

However, you will always be judged for not smelling good. That is why you need to invest in the best men's colognes.

Having a pleasant fragrance is more than smelling pleasant for those around you. It also attracts people to you and shows that you care about your hygiene. People will respond better and remember you fondly if your smell lingers. It is the most powerful scent tied to memory, so make sure you are remembered in 2024 with these top picks for colognes for men. We didn't go with all the big boys in the men's cologne industry. You will see one name that nearly everyone knows. But, we stuck more with the ones that you all should know. There is no Dior, no Polo, and no Gucci on this list. We didn't go for names. We went for quality fragrances and picks that will keep you remembered long after you leave.
